    Bottom bed is extendable, it is in this position 650mm wide behind seats and 800mm in center. It extends by 200mm, so you get 850/1000mm.
    Upper one is 800mm max.
    You get feeling that it is wider than bottom because it is mounted bit more forward as rear wall is not vertical but slightly lean forward (when cab goes back to prevent it to hit bodywork)

    But in new scania distance between bottom and top is too low, especially in lower R cab.
    Once they had 960mm in topline now only 620mm

    Upper was 700, now 650.
     
    Gearjammin' Penguin Thanks this.

    But it's still quite obviously above the driver's seat.

    All depends on How Big you Are..!!
