There is a sink across from the bathroom area. My wife actually like it that way. It gives her a little more counter area.

Yeah, making the bed can be a little tedious, but, just like anything else, it becomes part of the routine.

So far this year, we have used it over six times and we love it. Sometimes I do wish we would have gone for a slightly bigger unit. But, for the price and the amount use, it's perfect for us.

If there are some step by step photo on how to step up the bed room of a 2015 Thor 25.1 Vegas (air mattress) I would love to see them. I need help in setting up the bed.

Welcome! I had a RV when my kids were small and it was great to travel in. Enjoy.

Good morning,
We never even bothered with the air mattress! We bought a queen size 4" memory foam mattress that we folded and put in the shower area when we were travelling. It was perfect. It took a few minutes to set up at night, but after a little while it becomes part of the routine. We placed the mattress on the plywood base and stored the cushions under the bed.
I sold my unit last October and bought a Georgetown simply becasue it was alittle too small for us and the kids. Otherwise, we really had no issues with the Axis.

Good luck to you, I know you will enjoy it...

Matt

Matt, what mattress did you purchase for the rear area? I just purchased a used 25.1 and saw that there is a fold out sofa in the rear but I cannot find what to put into it, it seems like an air mattress was supposed to go there but it was not included with mine. I would probably need to fill that area and also get a larger mattress to fill in the entire area. I was thinking of something like this: Robot Check

I used the following from Amazon "Classic Brands Cool Gel Memory Foam Replacement Sofa Mattress for Replacement Sofa Sleeper, Queen Size"
It's a 4.5" gel mattress that we placed on the base plywood platform. We would place the cushions below the makeshift bed for the night. It can be a pain, but like anything else, it becomes a process. It worked pretty well for us. I'm 6 feet tall and close to 240lb and had no issues sleeping on it.
I looked into a folding mattress, similar to what you recommend, that's another great option. Just make sure the size works.

Good luck...

In a previous motorhome we had...our bed was a hide a bed...we dealt with the mattress thing on a daily basis...you get used to the routine and it is not a big deal. The important thing is to ENJOY CAMPING !!
Make the most of every moment...with your young kiddos...they will grow up have some amazing experiences.

Check out the modifications some of the men have done to their coaches.
Lots of great ideas if you want to make some changes/upgrades.

Happy Day !
Kay

25.1 rear bed

One of the reasons my wife and I got the 25.1 is that she needs to exit the bed from the side. I have permanently changed the rear by redesigning the supports and having a custom 5 in mattress made to fit. The two bench parts are under that mattress and the rear cushions on both sides remain in place. Its quite comfortable, but we don't watch TV back there.
Hope this helps.
Another small suggestion: for draining the black tank I found a 45 degree clear extension which the connecting much easier.
