Dwarsslaper wordt soms wel gebruikt, maar ik zou het gewoon slaapbank noemen.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Uit de context kan ik opmaken dat met dat "quer" de richting van de slaapbank bedoeld is. Je hebt blijkbaar slaapbanken die met de lengte van het bankstel mee zijn ingebouwd en je hebt er die dwars op de sofa staan. Nooit geweten!

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
disagree  Lourens Broekhuis: I/h voorbeeld van Linda gaat het om een specifiek type slaapbank/bedbank, nl. een dwarsslaper. Ik zou dat specifieke wel laten blijken in de vertaling.
