Kemberton Bed(s)

Post by Heanorboy on Mon Sep 04, 2017 10:21 am

Can someone kindly confirm my understanding that the in the Kemberton (5.99mts) there is no option of the two single beds like my Dorset/symbol (5.4mts) and in order to get this option I would need to go to the Kemberton XL.

Many thanks
David

Yes,  you are correct , however ,we , as well as a few others have made 2 small cushions which fit between the front seat and the sofa on one side and the passenger seat and the single forward facing seat. Others have said they are happy sleeping up to around 6 ft height. The cushions can be put behind you in this position with rear single seat reclined giving two sofa arrangement of the Warwick duo too so quite flexible in arrangement.

Same here. The set up works well with two cushions. We had one infill cushion cut in half for this purpose. Our set up may differ to others but we reverse the two forward seats, set them to their lowest height and pushed back to the windscreen as far as possible. We then fit the cushions between the reversed front seats and the sofa and the single rear reclined seat. Not essential perhaps, but we also add a small stool between and under the single rear reclined seat and the reversed passenger seat. This provides support for the extra weight to the unsupported sectional end of the rear reclined seat. When not in use the stool is folded and put away under the front passenger seat. Its slim enough to to slide on top of the vehicle tool kit at the rear entrance of the front passenger seat.

Thank you all now I know there is a way around this will have another look at the Kemberton.
You do have to wonder however why AS didn't offer the option in the first place

How do you manage to completely reverse the drivers seat on your Kemerton?
I've tried it on mine, but the base plate of the seat snags on the panel behind the seat which houses the fuse box and holds the settee base in place.

On my MH the steering wheel is pushed down to its lowest point. The drivers’ seat is also set at its lowest point. I remove the sofa seat. I then manoeuvre the drivers’ seat so the back of the seat is pushed firmly up to the steering wheel. I then replace the sofa seat and add cushion. The seat on my set up does not interfere with the panel that houses the fuse box. I suggest if the drivers’ seat still snags on the panel you might need to raise the seat a little higher so the cushion part of the seat can ride over the panel. You could alternatively and as others say they do, have the drivers’ seat facing forward with a cushion between the back of the seat and sofa.
Hope this helps.

Thanks for your reply. I'll have another go with your suggestions when this weather clears up.
