Finding the right RV bed setup is rather like that fairytale . . .
It’s tricky to get it just right and yet OH SO IMPORTANT to have a comfortable resting area – sleep is paramount to good health and good safety – who wants to be driving if you’re tired or distracted from aches and pains.
“Enter . . . the search for the perfect bed – does it exist?
Absolutely . . .
But the thing is, the perfect bed is different for everyone – so figuring out what’s right for you is a bit of a trial and error scenario.
Take for instance the bed that comes in the Hymer Aktiv . . . specifically the mattress. It’s well made, and obviously good foam structure, and firm . . .
As in . . . really, really firm . . . which is good . . . for your back, but for some, not so much for comfort. Ergo, my rabbit hole of “what to do to ensure a great night’s sleep”.
I tried a gel pad . . . didn’t like it,
tried a feather topper . . . didn’t like it
tried a combo waffle whiz bang sparkly blue bits thing-a-jig . . . didn’t like it.
Tried a self inflating mattress pad – a really fat one from Rei, surprised to find it OK [ it’s now my guest bed ] . . . but still not perfect.
Aaah – that ubiquitous search for perfect [ it’ll drive you . . . um . . . crazy ]
And so it goes . . .
I ended up with a combination of a 4” foldable mattress from LUCID and a large wave gel topper wrapped up like a mummy to hold everything together . . .
Eureka! Now I do feel like a princess when I sink onto my nest for rest.
