Where do I store the queen bed cushion

We recently bought a 2003 Trail lite r vision trailer. The two ends drop out to become beds. The cushion on the back bed stores easily. When we bought the trailer the owner had the queen cushion stored in the trailer. I'm sure it should store where where the queen bed is pulled up. But we can't seem to make it work. Does anyone out there know how or where it is supposed to be stored?

Thanks
Shelleybean

Are the cushions original to the RV? Often the cushions are pieced to be easy to store, perhaps a single queen size mattress was 'upgraded' for comfort. You could also explore using an inflatable mattress to be easier to store.

let's clear up the terminology.

first, Shelley, you have a hybrid travel trailer.
second, you're talking about the mattresses, not cushions.
third, most hybrids have a way of fastening the mattress to the bunk end door.
some have straps, some have velcro, some have snaps.

you need to post pics of the inside surface of the front bunk end door.
or look for bungees or straps from the inside bunk door frame that may go across to keep the mattress held against the bunk door, when closed.

on our 2001 trailite bantam b19... the mattress has three sections of foam hooked together. the mattress has two snaps at the each of the corners. the top two you snap to the wooden door/bed platform at the top and the other two that have a strap that sticks out farther you snap on the door i think the snaps are about halfway on the "door" after you fold the mattress with the big section on the bottom and the two smaller sections on top of that. the queen always puffs out farther inside the trailer than the full size does.. next time we camp (in two weeks) I will try to remember to take pics for you..

I had a 2004 Rvision HTT, and the mattresses folded in half, then snapped to the bunk floor. This kept them in place while vertical.

Flop the bed in half at the middle seam, find the little straps of material with the snap on it, snap it to the bunk floor near the outside edge.

Then carefully fold the tenting like you're gift wrapping it, then carefully close the door up, making sure you don't pinch the fabric in the door.

On the newer hybrid (2013 Aerolite) if I tried to keep them in the bunks and close the door, the bunk doors will not close all the way. So when they are laid across the table they are folded in half. We also added 2" mattress toppers at Dutchmans expanse. Without the added the mattress toppers the batting in the mattress was super light weight, but sucked as fas as comfort.

Thanks for the correction of the terminology.
Obviously I'm a first time trailer owner. I'm anxious to try out the advice that's been given to me

Our older (2005) hybrid had two long bungy cords that created a "X" to hold the mattress in the upright position to leave against the bunk doors when closed
