THOR #21365
Good evening from ICT Kansas

What a wonderful site. Looking forward to pulling info and talking with you all.....
I am 63, retired military and have never owned an RV of any kind.
I will start out first by asking an important question since i am teetering on the edge of buying one.
I am looking at a 2017 Freedom Elite 24' on the E-450 chassis, my wife does NOT like the rv size queen bed, do they make a mattress 60x80 that will fit that space? Of course it has the slide out for the bed.
I am 6'1" and want to be comfortable.

Welcome to the forum. I'm unfamiliar with that model, but someone will probably have some input for you.

Welcome to our campfire.
Does the RV Queen bed have to fold up in the rig that you're looking at?
If it does: as long as the extra 6" of mattress will clear the ceiling...
I have a friend who is 6'10" tall, and they built a removeable extension to support the bed extension that they built for his RV.

Welcome to the group. We have the 30fe and have a little longer bed with me being 6”5. We have to make sure and fold over part of the bed when we bring the slide in. Easy enough since we have a sleep number and I always air down the bed when moving anyways.
