My old TEC (same stable as Hymer) had great mattresses so I was really disappointed with the Hymer one on the rear bed. It has compressed very badly where my hip lies. And it can't be turn over or round because of the shape.

patp You can get his and hers quilts (thicker on one side). Or you could get the set that has one thin, one a bit thicker, which clip together to make an even thicker one. With that you could fold one of them in half so you have three layers on the person that wants it warmer.

Yup! Those are the ones we have. I have my autumn one on now but Chris is still using the summer one

I would agree with Tamar. My Hymer mattress is pretty s**t but the Froli made a huge difference.

patp Like Ray, we opted for an island bed and have not regretted it once.

For those that share a bed I remember a discussion on here, once, about double and single duvets on a double bed. We have gone for the singles and they make a huge difference too. We both have different temperature requirements. I need a heavy, warm, duvet while Chris likes a light and cool one so we have two of the four season single duvets. Yes they do slide off the bed more easily but are much more comfortable as they wrap around each person rather than the gap down the middle. You get used to sticking a leg out to hoik the sliding duvet back and it does not happen all the time anyway.

jiwawa However, it may not be suitable for bench seats in that it raises the seat/mattress off the base. With my mattress there's a lip at the front which hides this space but that wouldn't be the case with a seat.

Having had a couple of nights on it I can confirm that it is indeed very comfortable. I do recommend it.

raynipper One of the reasons we said no more French beds but only a central walk round bed. Thats if we ever buy again Jean.

jiwawa And it's done!

I can't believe how easy it was (only relatively speaking, mind you!) compared with getting it out. I was beginning to think they must put the mattress in before they put on the roof!!

I was also afraid the froli base might move when I was getting the mattress on as it doesn't quite fill the space (being a French bed shape) but all worked OK.

I'd taken down the bed curtain so it didn't get caught - I think I'll just leave that off.

Oops, I've just noticed my toplight fully open - had to do that to get it up the corridor.

I haven't actually lain on it yet - the plumber who was fixing a leak in the house came looking for me - but kneeling on it I think it's going to be very comfortable.

And while on the subject, does anyone have an easy way to make up one of these beds (high, restricted on 3.5 sides, n cupboards above?) I'm always exhausted by the task and use my forehead on the cupboard doors to leverage the mattress while tucking the fitted sheet under. I'm not going to get any younger!

jiwawa I can go nowhere till I shift the mattress from off the drop down. Not looking forward to it. Tho I should get out there instead of talking about it!
