I got an aerobed double size since I use the front bed and I just put it on the the cushion.

Did you get the screen room option of the trailer? I use this on my trips so I don't break my bed to a table ever.

BTW welcome to this forum and congrats on your new A-Frame

I didn't get the screen room because of the price. Will probably pick up one from one of the camping sites.

Oh that's too bad, I got the screen room and a bike rack carrier as part of the deal. If you could make a good deal before picking up your rig, get it. Check out my post #42 here:A128S Converted from ALINER Ranger
Since screen room is attached snugly to the rig you could leave the door open, did yours come with a screen door?

We sleep on the sofa that pulls out to make a bed. The cushions are ok for one night, but hurt my back after two nights, and GF's back after three nights. We have added a 4" memory foam topper but have yet to try it out.

We sleep on the cushions when the rear sofa is made into a bed. We bought a snugfleece wool mattress pad from Dream Soft Bedware .com, which we stuffed into a duvet cover to keep it clean. A sleeping bag is laid on top. When we get up it takes only seconds to roll it all up together and stow at the rear of the sofa. Making the bed at night is similarly fast. Just unroll and fall in. We liked it so much after 10 weeks on the road that we bought another one for the bed at home. They're not cheap but they're cloud soft.

I started out on my first trip in my A124 sleeping on the factory supplied cushions. DO NOT sleep on these. Trust me you will be sorry! Next I tried a $20 air mattress. This was worlds better. Air mattresses are best for one person. With two people, one will end up getting bounced around when the other one turns over at night.

I finally bought a real mattress and just keep the bed setup all the time as I do not use the dining table. When using my camper, the majority of the time I am using it for sleeping so a comfy mattress is a priority.

Experiment a little bit and see what works best for you.

I think it boils down what your bed is like at home. I have a sleep number bed at home and found the dinette to be too hard for me. My solution was an air mattress. I use an electric pump to fill it so it's quick. It works for me and is easy to store.

So far, I've slept on 4 out of 5 beds in our 233S. I def need a topper, at least. We did try the dinette out and it was too narrow, so..... we turned the mattress from the bunk end perpendicular on the dinette and it worked nicely (size wise). We do prefer toppers tho, no matter what; although it's always good to have the air mattress, that may be just the trick

I tried only the seat cushions. Not a go for me, so I placed 3" of memory foam (Walmart, Costco, etc.) on top of the cushions.

But I leave the rear dinette as a bed full time.
My rear bed is darn near the size of a queen bed.
