This last one is a test for myself, it's a copy of the last one above so I can see if a different way of posting works with videos

We always used to have a rear lounge on the first few vans then we got a front lounge/mid kitchen and that worked too, but we were wanting a shorter van but a lot of rear lounges have a useless to us dinette which just ads extra length and parking is harder in villages.

I am in two minds about having a van at all, but if we didn't have one I'd get no holiday at all, I've not been away at all since October 2019, this is a suck it and see for me at the moment, and if it is no longer my thing then it'll get sold on.

Personally I don't like a rear lounge and uncomfortable bed. Gimmee a walk round permanent bed any day.

That would be nice but it al takes up space and to be honest, we usually find van beds quite comfortable, I usually sleep better when away.

I think they put a lot of effort into the rear lounge bed in Our ancient Kontiki. It was after all back in the day Swifts Flagship van. Its actually really comfy and massive. I sleep better on that than I have in any bed I can remember. Quick to make up as well.

Yeah agree, obviously depends on the quality of the cushions and their layout, our Arapaho rear lounge bed is just fine for a really good nights sleep.

When we had a static van with a walk around bed we had to change the mattress to a better quality one after the first season using it as the one supplied with the new van was woeful.

Its all down to to quality.
