Day use of foam or gel pads?

Hi
We have a Casita Ind with twin beds, convertible to a king, which is our preference. We are trying to discover a way to make use of the pad during the day, as we have to take it off to use tables. We have considered buying two twin pads, or a queen, don't need the full king. Any experience with-
Rolling it? Making it a bolster or back pillow? Any kind of compression bag? Can it be refolded? Thickness recommendations? Other ideas?
Thanks so much!
Wendy

We role ours and store it in the area formed by the bridge of our wraparound couch, which you could do with a simple mod.

We store our two foam pieces folded behind the back of the couch, normally the top bunk.

We used to use two thin, air camping mattresses, just 44" long, primarily for our torsos. They fit under the dinette cushions. We tried longer ones and they also fit behind the back of the couch.

Thanks! Can I ask what size/type pad it is? Do you have to fold it in half to roll? If so, does creasing it effect it's comfort? Thanks much!

We rolled up the king/queen sized foam topper into a roll about 10-12 inches in diameter, secured it with long sleeping bag straps, and used it as a bolster at the back of the trailer during the day.
