Hi all,

I am looking for space saving ideas surrounding comfortable sleep pads, sleeping bags.

I have a Eurovan that I do not find has overly comfortable bed, what do you suggest? That will not take up all of my trunk space?

Your guidance is greatly appreciated

I've always added a memory foam pad with its own cover.
When you set up your bed, roll it out on top.
Makes all the difference in the world.

i went to a foam shop (the one by uptown) and had my rear bed custom made with two types of top-quality foam (they have a few different quality levels to pick from). medium-firm 3 inches, soft 1 inch topper. They glued it together for me.

i think it was less than $200.

i've slept on it. Smile all good. but i am still going to top with a memory foam topper like steve said. memory topper on the upper bunk too.

We have a 78 Champagne VW Bus that was factory camperized (it's not a Westy BTW, it's a tin-top) but the "mattress" is terrible. Could you explain more about how to improve it? Thank you!
