Put bed sheets on it and several layers of blankets depending on the temp. no heater but the trailer is well insulated.

Thats what I did. I went to a upholstery supply store,(DLT) and bought a 3" extra firm piece of foam cut to size and I also used a
eggshell mattress topper too. It worked out real good. :thumbsup:

I use a Coleman queen air mattress. My Little Guy Silver Shadow did not come with one (got it used .. no galley either) and I already had the mattress. It fits perfectly.

For those who say "Don't use an air mattress in the cold weather" ... Not a problem, because I don't use blankets. I use a double size sleeping bag so I have "insulation" on the top AND the bottom.

I got the 4" memory foam topper on sale a while back. Finally used it the weekend. It was perfect. No stiffness in my 49 yr old back in the morning and comfy to sleep on.

Bought a custom 3 piece foam mattress with a canvas zippered cover from Knox Foam in Knoxville, TN ( they are no longer in business). Consists of 3 inches extra firm 3 inches medium firm and 2 inches high density memory foam. The two lower layers can be reversed to make the bed firmer or softer. The cover zips on 3 sides and the mattress is 46.5 in x 73 in so it fills the entire cabin. Can either roll/fold the entire mattress for removal and placement or can put cover in place and add a layer at a time. It is as comfortable as my Queen size beds in the house and have often used it like a blowup bed for extra guests that are staying in my home. Have had it for 6 years and no noticable deteriation. Was waranteed for 20 years but like I say the company I bought it from went out of business.
