We have slept both as twins and as a queen. Like the queen set up better for us. We set up and take down the bed daily as it gives us more seating arrangements. I just had hip surgery and seating positions have taken on a more important situation and I don't like wrinkles in a bed that has been slept on during the day. Only takes 5 min to fix the bed back to a neat trailer with comfortable seating. Hope this helps. Also have friends who use the twin configuration nightly with sleeping bags and just roll them up in the morning. Sandy
Now that is funny! We were all typing at the same time! Glad you chimed in with your mod. Good camping to the two of you, R &Y!!!! Sandy

I'm so sorry that I do not have any pics of our interior mods. But I am going to direct you to a post where you can see some pics of a mod that inspired me to make my changes. First, let me explain what we did. We removed all Casita cushions and put them in storage at home. We used some thin plywood to make what I call the platforms for the beds. The one across the back measures 30" x 75. One twin is 30" x 50". The other is 24" x 50". All rest directly on the fiberglass benches so they are at the same level. When in place they create a U shaped area. We then purchased a 6" Spa sensations mattress from Walmart and cut to fit the platforms. Then we simply wrapped our mattress and platform with a piece of fabric large enough to cover entire size and stapled to back of plywood platform. We chose 6" because didn't want to be too high off floor when sitting. What we don't have are backrest cushions. Use a couple of throw pillows that serve as backrests, pillows when napping, or just decor ( they don't take much space). Please look at posts by member Sunny_One on the other Casita Forum. Find her thread titled 'Spirit Mods twin beds'. My back bench looks exactly like hers except for a different fabric. She was a great inspiration with her beautiful mods. Let me know what you think.

Here's a link w/pic. of Sunny_One's Spirit Bed Mod: http://www.casitaclu...up/#entry164434
Several of us Spirit D. Owners have done this mod, but I think Sunny One could win a fancy mod award. (-:
Her decor makes my casita look like a shack.
Since you have a liberty, I'm adding this link w/pic of Bob in Redding's U shaped Liberty mod: http://www.casitaclu..._15#entry174946

The bed in Queen bed configuration is the same length as your SD. The trailer is the same width. The twin bed is the same width as if you made your dinette into a bed- 24 inches x 80 inches. That is where your extra length comes in for both the twin and King configuration. The queen in the liberty is wider than the SD from the rear window to toward the galley. In the king it would be 80 inches long with your pillow by the rear window and feet by the galley.
You asked if the twins are wide enough. They are for me. Have spent many a nap on the twin. I just put the back rest on the floor and snooze. Make up your dinette and see if it is wide enough /comfortable enough for you.the length will be too short but it will give you an idea of width. Also, several have added width with add ons to the twin. Do a search as I know they added pics so you can see how they did it. Sandy

The first couple of trips out we rolled the topper, quilts and duvets up as a bolster against the back, then set up the little table for a small dinette area but maybe we are getting lazy because on this last trip (spent 5 days in Quincy at the N. Ca. Fiberglass RV gathering) we left the bed out the whole time, switching to lay side to side in the evening to watch a movie. Instead of a table inside, we use the sink cover as a table to enjoy a small breakfast in bed and it works fine. Most of the time we spend outside, but when inside it's more a portable bedroom with an attached kitchen and bath and I don't miss the dinette at all. Nice to know it is there if needed, but I think it will be rare to set it up.
