DD Cushions into a bed layout?

OK...I'm a newbie...we have a T12DDST...we have been using the left Dinette for our bed, but have yet to figure out how the heck the cushions are suppose to be Tetris'ed in to stop them from sliding out onto the floor at night. We have a mattress topper on order, but I'd still like to figure out how to layout the cushions correctly. Guess we shoulda asked the previous owner...I honestly thought I was smarter than the cushion.

PS sorry for the sideways picture...I can't for the life of me figure out how to rotate it on here.

Some people have tried to Velcro them down with mixed luck.

Just a thought, how about some carpet padding?

I have seen some wood workers who use it to keep the wood from sliding around.

I use a 1x4 board that is long enough to be placed on top of both storage areas ( narrow side down)and up against cabinets (micro and sink). This keeps the cushions from going anywhere and is easy to use and very effective.

This is a photo of a narrower board I used to use but concept is the same. This one is about 2.5 inches wide but I now use 1x4 which is 3.5 inches wide

I can't help with the cushions but I think on the pictures, if your using an Iphone. Hold it sideways with the volume buttons on the lower left. I think that will allow your pictures to post correctly.

Never too much rompin while camping

I think your topper will help. If you leave it as a bed all the time, you might try taping them together with some wide painters tape - shouldn't leave a residue on your cushions but will hold them together if you use long enough strips. Just a thought!

A sheet over the top of the topper and cushions keeps things in place for us...but we sleep in sleeping bags on top of that.
