Great news about having fun and doing your third trip...

Yes, suffocation is a worry in any small trailer/ camper, always sleep with a vent open or window.. It has happened to people. most were very lucky...

I thought humans do not produce carbon monoxide that can kill in sleep. Carbon dioxide exhailed by people will cause headaches and will wake people up when it's concentration is getting significantly higher than background normal air.

OP827:

Can carbon dioxide kill you?
It can. high CO2 produces acidosis. When the CO2 gets high enough, it displaces O2 and can asphixiate you.
Carbon Dioxide doesn't kill people on it's own. High concentration of carbon dioxide and lack of oxygen can.

Example:
Two people in a small closed camper with no vents or windows open, only has so much oxygen. We breath in oxygen and produce carbon dioxide.
When there is a lack of oxygen, our brain tells us to breath deeper and faster. Which produces more carbon dioxide.
Eventually you are breathing in more carbon dioxide and less oxygen. When the oxygen in the camper runs out. The body stops to function.. From the lack of oxygen..

Some people have been very lucky to wake up, though feeling dizzy and nauseous from the lack of oxygen... in some cases this is not the case.. and people have died..

Smarter Every day did this - based on asphyxiation and sure as heck never want to do it myself. you might wake up, and not know what you need to do to save yourself.
