The bed, however, will need some work. It is cozy and comfortable for a couple nites, but it is a bit hard on my old bones for long periods of time. I sleep on an air mattress at home, I am wondering if I could find a place that will custom shape one for the trailer?
It didn't take much longer than one night for me to want a softer mattress. Funny how those dinette cushions can be so thick, but so uncomfortable. Now I pile it on like the princess, until I can no longer feel the pea. My old one- and two-inch Thermarest mattresses didn't feel soft enough, either, but on top of the cushions, they're just about perfect. My wife added a cheap egg-crate foam layer. It's comfy, but bulky and dirt-catching. Air mattresses are more compact and conformable, if more trouble to inflate. I use a 3/4 length Big Agnes Air Core pad fit into the back of the bed with the corners tucked up, and a full-length Thermarest for the longer halfof the bed completes the ensemble du boudoir. I can't wait to try my new down-filled air mattress, though. Guess I'm kind of an ulptralight bed connessieur.. oh well, for other guys it's fly rods or bowling balls.
