We are getting ready to order our NEW TT...a Zinger 26BL. One option we are considering is the innerspring Hide-A-Bed rather than the jack knife sofa. I can not find a picture of an opened HAB on any dealer sites or You Tube videos. Can any current Zinger owners with innerspringHAB sofa's offer their opinion(s) of the HAB sofa? Is it comfortable? Is it as big as a full size or queen size bed? HELP!!!

It is not a "innerspring"HAB anymore in the Zinger, they have upgraded to the new tri-fold HAB option (very nice upgrade, BTW). I sat on a few, very comfortable and the most residential couch I've sat on.

Stan, I'm not sure they are selling them aftermarket - Crossroads has put them in the Sunset Trail and the Zinger as the upgraded HAB. I'm not sure if the Cruiser is using them or not. It is worth the effort to contact them via their number and see if they are retailing them? I can attest, I think in all my years of camping - the model mentioned here is the most residential couch I've sat on. In addition, the tri-fold is so easy and comfortable as a bed it I was amazed it's just a few hundred bucks as an upgrade.

Hated airbed that came with our ST. Took too long to set up and too noisy.We just bought a sofabed from IKEA. Quick setup, fairly comfortable,Not very sturdy. Frame broke at hinge weld 2nd time opened. Just got replacement - have not assembled it yet. These sleeper beds thru lippert look MUCH better option. Will have to try the phone number.

We have the hide a bed sofa in the 26bl. The issue is when folded out you can not get from the master bedroom to the bathroom as the sofa bed almost touches the kitchen counter/drawers.

Thanks Anaro, you have answered several of my Zinger 26BL questions over the last few months, and I really appreicate it! I figured there would be very little space between the opened HAB and kitchen cabinets. Thanks for confirming that! We placed the order for a 2014 Zinger 26BL last week and are very excited to start the season with a new unit!
I have seenonline pics showing an exterior storage door for access under the dinette/behind the storage drawers. Does your unit have this...I can't find it as an option, it's not listed as standard, and is not on all units pictured online. I have contacted my dealer via email, asking about this door. I would love to have one on our unit, but I know he is not in the office on a Sunday morning!
Thanks again!

We have a storage bay access on the slide. It is a small access compartment. It accesses in the middle of our U dinette. You can pop the seat off the dinette and run the hose to flush out the toilet/black tank through there. We lay a tarp down, move the table and do this every trip.Ours is a 2011. Not sure what they may have changed on newer units.

Congrats on the purchase of your 26BL. You will love it! May it bring you many wonderful camping trips and memories.Edited by: anaro
