That's a cool looking piece of furniture. Mattress looks like it would be more comfy than the cheap 2"ers they put on the old style HAB's. Wouldn't mind replacing my J-Steel with this, but would lose the storage under, and I don't think I would have the clearance in front of the dinette.

We don't have our 5er yet, but we're going to be using the Hide-a-bed for our kids or grandkids, on occasion. I noticed it didn't look like it would be very comfortable without some kind of topper. All those stiff cracks and seams don't appear to make for a very comfortable sleeping surface.

And that is what my 15 y.o. told me after sleeping on it last weekend. I will be making a "fix" for it after I measure it up this weekend.

When you find a good cure let us know!

I'm thinking of getting a small foam topper and maybe rolling it up when not in use, and securing it with straps or bungie cords. That's the only thing I could think of.

Kind of hard to tell from the pictures, but looks like there might be 5-6 inches of space underneath the base? If it is accessible could a topper be stored under there doubled over?

We use a thick comforter on the hide a bed once folded out and a full comforter as a blanket. This is the way our 17 yr old likes to sleep on it. There is space under the seating once the first two pieces are folded out. We store the queen comforter, full comforter, twin blanket and 2 pillows there. I also have full size t-shirt or jersey set of sheets that fit the hide a bed nicely but she likes sleeping on the comforter for now.

Well I haven't made the foam topper yet. I am working with Jayco's Service Department because of the way this thing lays out. It's not level and the 3 sections are at different levels and there is a part in the middle that has no support that creates a sag from a 113 pound 15 y.o.

Here are some photos that I submitted to Jayco service this weekend...

Sag in middle section.


I used the blanket to set the 4' level true...the camper was double checked to being level prior to doing this. The drop is over 4".


And this is the stitching that wasn't done properly from the Mfg.


I'll keep you all posted when I hear back.

UPDATE - nothing to update. Still waiting for the couch Mfg to get back to my POC at Jayco. It's been almost 2 months and it's still not resolved. I'm truly disappointed.

Sorry to hear this. No way to treat a customer.
