Hot air

My air mattress sprung a leak so I slept flat last nite.  It wasn’t too bad actually.  I don’t feel like fixing the mattress or buying a new one.  Too much of a hassle and it will probably happen over and over again.  I want to get some kind of camping matt or even one or two of those cushy foamy rugs people use in front of their bathtubs these day.  I like roughing it and these little rugs would get me lower to the ground too…less likely to be seem while I’m sleeping.

As always, ideas are welcome.

    How about those folding chairs that pull out to a bed?

    Costco has the bathmats in 36×24 size for $13. They’re much more expensive at Bed, Bath, and Beyond.

    We tried memory foam on the top bunk of our Westfalia, but it turned out to be significantly heavy. That’s hard on mileage. So we found that a good quality 4″ thick foam mat on top of the Westfalia padding is sufficient.

    How long did that first one last? 6 months? Not a bad investment. Maybe you could pick up 2 or 3 cheapies.

    Maybe you could get a futon or whatever its called. Do you sleep with a pillow underneath your legs? It helps.

    I got a 6″ Spa Sensations mattress from Walmart, then cut it to size with a bread knife for mattresses for my camper. You have to order the mattress at Walmart online, then it is delivered free to a store near you. If you can use a regular twin size, you wouldn’t have to resize it. We needed narrower mattresses for our trailer.

    It’s 4″ regular foam with 2″ memory foam on top. We think it is more comfortable than our beds at home. We paid $79.00 for the twin size last November, and it will be comfortable for a long time. It will also be a lot warmer in winter than an air mattress would be.

    So maybe that might work for you. 🙂

  5. Good post. I learn something totally new and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon
    on a daily basis. It’s always exciting to read through content from
    other writers and practice something from their websites.
