For some reason I recall someone on here mentioning that they raised the height back in the early eighties but that doesn't make a lot of sense unless someone comes on here and vouches for their coach not having the humps. The humps would not even be an issue on a twin bed unit or what Rellick is mastering above.

Actually when I dwell on the subject I must admit Newell screwed up on this previous school of thought prior to Karl Blade taking the helm.
One could still do a raised floor just in the bedroom area leaving a fairly large storage area(s) The humps in mine are 7" high. The only issue would be a step, but it would be a more noticable tripping hazard than a hump. and for those with that peskey turbo box it would be a better height for a bed etc.

Keith is this something like what the finished bed will look like when laid out into a bed?

Sorry I don't know the brand. I saved it a few months ago, I wish I did though. If I happen to run across it again I will come back and be sure to let you know.

Keith, we may start a pic competition on these Newell's. Who can share the most and best pics for the crowd. Well if there's no crowd, we'll just enjoy them ourselves.

Don't know what happened to our LED lighting instruction being done on someones '86?
