RV Adjustable bed: Custom Queen Doppelflex MX2
Two independently operated 2 – motor custom Half -Queen Adjustable system ( 29.5 X 74.5 inch) screwed on L-shaped 60 X 75 inch platform in four places with L-shape brackets. The bed platform had a two-piece sliding platform. The top piece slid over the bottom piece when the slider was moved in. We custom made it so that one section of the adjustable base was screwed on the top platform. The foot section folded over when the slider was moved in and when the slider was moved out in sleep position, the foot section unfolded and rested on the lower platform.
Both adjustable systems are in the “Default mode” where the head section raises initially up to 45 degree angle before the lumbar (back) section then raises to a 65 degree angle.

This is the second Dynamax Isata 3 we installed with our system. The first one is here with a couple of videos as well.
The challenge was how to fold our adjustable system when the slider move in. The reason was that the platform consisted of two halves; the top half slid over the lower half when the slider moved in. Thus the adjustable bed had to be secured to the upper platform and the foot section of the adjustable bed had to fold over to allow the slider to slid in.We shared many photos of the sliding mechanism, the dimensions and successfully made it work.
The second challenge was to ensure that the door to the bathroom could remain reasonably accessible when the slider with the adjustable system moved in. This could potentially limit the door opening. Fortunately, the platform is made asymmetrically so that the platform is made with more access space on the side of the door versus the other side of the platform.
The completed installation with the slider fully extended!
The separate adjustable systems with the custom feet that supported the unfolded adjustable systems. (See how the bed folds when the slider is brought in below).
Both adjustable beds in the flats position.
Notice that there is a resting space to the right of the platform. the original mattress actually rested on that half and the rest dangled off the bottom platform. This made opening the door to the toilet restrictive. Now without the wider mattress, the door opens wider and entry is easier. See photo below of the door opening.
Another view of the side. Note that we need an air gap so the mattress can be raised without bruising the side of the cabinet.
Same air gap on the left wide between the adjustable head section and the window valance.
The two transformers were temporarily connected to the surge protector as Dean planned to install the cable extender a different later.
Final installation with mattresses in place.
Improved toilet door opening without restriction of previous wider mattress.
Nicely equipped toilet!
Dean starting in the flat position.
Dean raised the back slightly up – actually only the head section initially.
Now with the knee, head and back sections raised for reading and watching TV.
A more relaxed position for a nap!
Both systems raised for Anne and Dean!
In preparation to bring in the slider, the foot sections have been folded up and held in position by the parachute cords. When the slider is brought in, the folded feet will just abut the external wall of the toilet.
Shows how Dean can just raise one side and sleep on the other side. Also, if he split the lower platform under the lower adjustable bed, he could only open one half to access storage.
