You could go to home depot and get a roll of reflix insulation and lay that under the bed, also if you are handy you could cut a hole on each side of the bed. And put a lover vent over the hole to get some air under the bed.

I've never heard of a Lover Vent. Is that something old people should be looking out for?

This is the most effective. It also keeps the inside compartments from absorbing heat. Running the genset uses about 1/2 gal. per hour (roughly $1.50 per hour.).

We have a 03 39' Gulf Stream and my wife was ill during our last trip and spent quite a bit of time in the bed. She mentioned that it was comfortable and no heat. I would agree with the other comments on the insulation aspect as we also store stuff under the bed.

Ours has the rear over the road engine driven AC like Mr D's.

Our north/south mattress is always hot upon arrival in hot weather.
