I have a North Trail 21FBS and want to know if any one has modified the queen bed. I had the idea of raising the lift platform and hold it up with a strap and add another wood platform and add cushions bottom an top against the raised base to create a place to lounge and watch movies at night. Could some one give me an suggestions?
Thanks Carbuff

I have the 21 FBS. My feet hang over the end of the bed, so I put a regular queen size pillow top over the original mattress. Now the pillow top hangs over the end of the bed platform by a few inches. I am thinking about removing the lift up portion of the bed platform and replacing it with an extended size OSB to fit the size of a regular queen. This way when I sit on the end of the bed, you won't have that sinking feeling. This is on my to do list along with putting gas struts on the lift up portion so you can actually use the under neath storage space. Let me know if you do something different and it works for you.
