Dave, I picked some up in Oregon at an Ace Hahdware store. I'll check here in Bellingham at Ace, Lowes & Home Depot if you like. You'll be driving right past Lowes front door. Easy off easy on location.

I was actually just thinking about this last weekend. We took our first winter camping trip to the Thousand Trails in Leavenworth, Washington. It got down to 11 degrees. The campground was literally a sheet of ice.

I insulated both the underside of the bed and the front & back walls of my pass-thru with the pink Styrofoam insulation (1-1/2" thick), that I glued in place with the Liquid Nails designed for use on Styrofoam. Unlike Crabman, I didn't top it off with Luanne plywood. Keep in mind, when you raise the bed platform, the countertop overhang on your night stands will rip the Styrofoam off, if you extend the Styrofoam sideways to fill the gaps. However, the memory foam mattress topper I bought is wide enough to fill the gaps. Since I put the topper under the mattress (like a box spring), the memory foam fills those gaps and keeps out any cold air.

When we got our trailer there were open spaces on each side of the bed. So I made 2 L-brackets and screwed them into the walls and then put foam on the top. So when the bed comes down the bed rest on the L-brackets and stops the air from coming in from the front storage area.

No pics; I just laid the memory foam on the plywood platform, then laid the mattress on top of the memory foam.

I know I am late to this conversation, but maybe it will help someone? I used a swimming pool noodle, with a long horizontal slice in it, so it would "clip" over the wood. I cut it in sections to fit between the supports. Worked great!!

A step I took to keep DW warm was to cut to fit a piece of rigid insulation board and put it in the large window that is right over our heads when we're in bed. It's now the warmest spot on that wall. We have the dual pane windows, so I make sure to not have that window on the sunny side with the insulation in it.

I've thought about putting an electric blanket between the mattress and the plywood platform.

That sounds dangerous to me.
