New bed experiment

Currently I have a fixed bed in my rig with a high dollar XL twin mattress.  It's a nice heavy sturdy bed with good storage below.  Problem is that it takes up a ton of room and I'm wanting to add a more comfortable recliner.  (Yes,  I know...  I'm a dude)

So  I already own a really nice inflatable type camping pad and I've recently purchased a 4 inch high density foam pad  (also XL Twin)

Today I've ordered a Teton XL cot from Amazon.   It gets rave reviews and is supposed to be very big, very sturdy and very comfortable.   I decided to give it a shot.   The idea will be to have a more portable bed that I can move around as need be. I may sacrifice a bit of comfort but the flexibility will be very much enjoyed.

If it doesn't work out as a semi permanent bed in my rig it will still be nice to have for guests in my RV in Ellijay.    I'll re-post with a follow up when I get it all set up and sleep on it a few nights.

  1. I had to giggle when I read the title of this post. Glad that it was G-rated! ;-) ........ I hope that your experiment works out well - it sounds like a great idea. Good to see a post from you - hope you are completely healed after your accident last spring and that you've been able to enjoy some quality camping time this fall!

  2. Hey Kerri, Thanks and I hope your doing well to. Do you still have your van?
    I've been messing around with mine a lot lately. I'll be out of work in 2014 and looking forward to some serious camping. Hope all is well with you and wishing the best holiday for you and your daughter.

  3. Greetings!

    Recliners are definitely the way to go, I have one in my camper van and would be miserable without it.


  4. Hey Bob, found a nice recliner for my rig and I LOVE it. Really makes the bus a home. Thanks for the comment
