Like my 62" sleeper on KW. What is the closest sleeper out there now to this?

    I'm only going by what I see in literature but the 52 in seems quite small and the 70 is too big.
    Do Pete and KW measure differently? Pete 58" and KW 52"?????

    Pete’s 52” sleeper is actually a 48” sleeper they just changed where they measure and from my understanding it should be very similar to your KW’s 62” or you can look at the 72” pete sleeper which is actually a 63” sleeper. I do believe KW’s new 52” sleeper is closer to a 36” sleeper.

    I've always wondered were each manufacturer measures to. They obviously have no standard place. The 70 or 72 inch sleeper on this Cascadia sure don't seem almost a foot bigger than the 61 inch Volvo I used to drive. I also wonder if they measure that as counting the wall thickness too, not the useable inside space. The world may never know!

    A 72” KW Aerocab has the same footprint as a 60” modular.
