Smile Newbie in AZ

We are Bunkhouse Motorcycle Campers from AZ. We have camped out about 10 nights since we bought the camper, mostly in State Parks without elec or water. We're coming from a tenting background so our "off the ground" sleeping quarters are a real step up from what we're used to! The biggest problem so far has been in windy conditions when the tent flaps, makes tons of noise, threatens to bend or break our tent poles and makes it hard to sleep.
We're still working on the most comfortable sleeping situation and have gone from the factory 3" foam mattress, to twin air mattresses that are a bit too big for the unit. Any suggestions on comfortable sleeping options will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for the add.

Ride safe, sleep well...

I think I would try a dense "memory foam" mattress and pillows unless that's what you already have... if the quality is good your hip bone won't touch bottom when you're on your side, and a good pillow makes a world of difference (test that in store before you buy). Alternately you can add a thin layer of dense memory foam to your existing mattress. I have had several tent trailers, and the first thing I would do is replace the mattresses and pillows (and earplugs for the tent flaps). I hope this works for you... be safe!

Welcome to the forum.

You are joining a good group of folks here with good information to share. Read the various threads here and ask questions as they come up or add information if you can.

I agree with a memory foam mattress

Good luck and the adventure!
