King size bed dilemma

The motorhome I would like has a king size bed. Where would I put all my goodies that normally are on my night stand, such as water, remote, Rx, etc. All suggestions appreciated. Thanks.

Need more info.
My king sized bed has night stands on each side. They not as large as standalone night stands. But, they'll easily accommodate a remote, a book, a drink, and a little snack.

Thanks. Looking at sightseer 33c or Itasca sunova 33c. The pics look as if the mattress goes to the wall and is referred to as a "sidewall" king.

Make sure you go see one in person before you get all excited about the king bed. In addition to no place to set things Try to walk around the bed to see if the difficulty of getting in and out of it and how hard it is going to be to make the bed and change the sheets. That's one reason we looked at the Vista 36Y.

I have a Sightseer 33C on order. It should go to transportation tomorrow and arrive at my dealer next week.

You are correct. We have looked at a lot of 33C's prior to placing our order and the king bed option does not have night stands. However, the queen bed does have night stands.

If you are patient and can wait three months or so you can order a motor home from a local dealer with the exact options you want. You can negotiate a price equal to the coaches on their lot excluding the coaches that have been on their lot for a long time. It doesn't cost a dealer any more to place an order for you than it costs them to order a coach to sit on their lot. A dealer will order options that they think will help sell a coach. Foe example smaller people can sleep in a king bed but a queen bed for a large person is uncomfortable. Hence a dealer is more likely to order a king bed for a coach on their lot.

The same is true for the washer and dryer. Most dealers order the washer and dryer option. We like the pantry in place of a washer and dryer.

I am using velcro to attatch remote for tv and bed to wall in my 35g. The 35g does have a very small shelf in between bed and wall. On the back wall there is enough room to install a small flip up table and or magazine rack between the slide out and back wall, roughly about 4".
See if you can find one at a dealer and take a close look see.

In our 5th wheel wife uses the overhead cabinet for all that stuff except for the drink.

Mine had the King Bed. The dealers order them that way as they think that is what folks want but.... So I got out the saws and cut it down to queen size then made my own night stands. In the process we found an area at the head of the bed that was closed off and empty. It has since been turned into usable storage. We have to slide the mattress down to get into it so we put stuff there that doesn't need to be accessed often.

Also being more or less hidden it would provide a bit of security for what ever is stored there.

Hello, how did you cut it? Is the platform solid? Thanks, Sylvia

My Voyage 35L with king bed has nightstands they are smaller than the queen version but still adequate.

Wire baskets

We have a 33C and that is what we did in lieu of the missing nightstands. I believe we got our baskets from Walmart but in any case they hang from the open shelf installed on each side of the kingsize bed our 2016 Itasca 33C. I put zip ties on to make sure they don't move or fall.

A bit late but. You have to be careful as some of the platform is hollow so once you cut it you have to install filler on the edges between the top and bottom plys.

But I used a portable circular saw and plenty of guides to keep things square.
