So far I use a sleeping bag and my own pillow and the stock cushions. Thinking about getting some memory foam.

We made a permanent bed and my wife made matching sheets, pillow cases and curtains from bedding that was on sale at Wal Mart. Add in a co-ordinating comfortor that was also on sale.Total cost was under $40.00 to upgrade the look of the trailer.

I could not answer part II because I don't use the stock cushions: I have a mattress and a permanent bed, with 2 " memory foam on top of the mattress.

You don't have another option. We got the memory foam, 8 inch from Walmart and store the stock cushions. And use regular quilts and sheets. Best sleep ever.

We also have a good quality foam mattress with 3" egg crate on top---very comfy and I use flannel sheets always, even in the summer.

We use the standard double bed mattress which comes with the EggCamper and added a feather mattress. Very comfy.

I sort of cheated, because I use a sleeping bag AS the blanket.. I do not use it in "sack" form. I also have a small down throw and a faux buckskin.

So, my bed is a equipped and configured as my bed at home would be, except that I use an unfolded bag as my comforter.

I had memeory foam, but there was an unfortunate doggie accident that made me throw it away while camping. That nite I slept on the stock cushions only and found them quite comfy.. so, I never replaced the foam.

Our bed is 'permanant' where the rear dinnette is/was. W used bags in our old travel trailer but with this l'il trailer sometimes the bag(s) were just too heavy and we'd toss them off remaining on the lower bag. Quite often we'd then wake up chillie (NOT grouchy) and regret throwing the top bag off. We have since switched to sheets n blankies. This has mandated more work making the bedding up but the overall 'effect; with co-co matching bedding is usually worth the extra work!!!

The foam?? We use foam but not the memory kind, (neither of us like it) having 3" hi-dense instead. The 4" was just a little too high for our use.

Anyone use a Travasak? We met a couple using one in a 17' Casita this spring. They really liked it. We're tempted, but the narrowest one they make is a queen, which is pretty wide for a 13' Scamp bed.

We keep the bed made into a bed. We have added about 3 layers of egg crate foam (not a fan of memory foam). We have a 16' Scamp with side dinnete. We use sheets and one or more blankets, depending on weather and a bedspread. I use a wedge under my own pillow, bluejeans her own pillow.

What we do for bedding isn't listed as an option:

flat double bed sheet, directly on the stock Casita cushions
queen-size down duvet to cover
two feather pillows each

We just bought a Travasak (queen), but haven't tried it out yet. It seems well made.
We are using the custom sheets-fitted-to-the-memory-foam-&-sewn-together-at-the-bottom Norma made for our teardrop.
(If you think making a FGRV bed is tough, don't try a teardrop )

We replaced the 30-year-old foam in our stock cushions, but kept the original upholstery. The new foam is firmer than the original, and we deem it comfy enough without extra toppers. We seem to keep the bed in bed mode most of the time, but need to be able to unbox the window AC unit that rides on the floor under the bed and install it when needed and power for it is available.

Depending on the weather, we sleep with:
  • Just the Sheets
  • Sheet and empty Duvet
  • Sheet and Blanket
  • Sheet and Down Comforter
  • Sheet and Down Comforter in Duvet
  • Sheet and Down Comforter in Duvet, plus Blanket
  • Sheet and Down Comforter in Duvet, plus Blanket in 2nd Duvet

Sheets, blankets, and a faux feather-bed on top of the stock cushions. (The faux is fiber-filled.)

Stock cushions and a few layers of old (as in older than my 22 yr old son) 2" foam we had for tent camping. We never travel without our own pillows - they've been many places. Own sheets and blankets/duvet from house depending on weather expected. Gave up sleeping bags when the tent was put away.

Always wanted to try memory foam, just haven't got there yet.

We use sleeping bags (with our own pillows), since we convert back to the dinette each morning, sleeping on the stock cushions with our Thermarest pads on top. The pads even things out, which is nice because my hips fall EXACTLY on a seam, and they keep body moisture from descending into the cushions.

I have removed the dinette and have a permanent bed with a 3 inch memory foam mattress with a mircofibre cover on it. Works really well and I was able to get rid of the stock stinky foam
