Default opposing sofas in a BT Cruiser 5211

We just bought a 07 22' BT Cruiser and the 2 opposing jackknife sofas fold down to make a king sized bed. When we went to fold them down on our 1st trip last week I found out that the edges that I thought would touch stay about 6 inches apart making 2 beds. Is this the way they are supposed to be? Has anyone used something to fill the gap making the 2 sofas into 1 bed? Thanks for any help

I have seen a piece that you can use to connect and fill tow twin beds to make a "Whole" bed. You might want to check around for one of them. Vermont Country Store or the Net. That may work. GS did some strange things. 2 couches to form one bed? Strange.

We bought a 2004 BT Cruiser 5211 and we have the same beds that you described but they butt up against each other in the center of the vehicle. Our BT Cruiser is 96" wide and there is approximately 3" spacing between the bed and the wall on both sides when the bed is open. Perhaps you can check the mounting screws on the bottom of your sofa's on both sides to position them slightly closer together? I did take a photo of the bed in its open position, which I believe is a Queen Sized Bed, not a King.

Just like my BT Cruiser. We have a bit of a space between as well. Also do you know where I can get a new Jack Knife similar to the one in we both have in ours. Ones I see on line are nasty looking and very cheap.

We have a 2018 BT Cruiser which has the same two-couches-making-a-king-bed deal. We have the gap too. But we use the seat-back cushions from the couch on the slide side to fill the gap. The result is good, as if it is by design...
