Sleep in bed w slides in...

I never thought of this until now, but is it ok to sleep in bed with slides in? I always guessed it was but I'm not sure it the slide is supported adequately.

Usually the answer is yes, you can be on the bed slide when it's in. Usually bedroom slides aren't flush floor slides and therefore can be walked/slept on.

It is the flush floor slides that are unsupported when they're in that cannot be walked on.

On occasion, while dry camping in really cold weather, I have slept with slides in. Smaller air space to warm with furnace. Nice and cozy. Open slides during daytime.

There is no way to get in the bed of my trailer with the slide in.
I see no harm in doing it unless you are claustrophobic.

The furnace is a good point- a majority of our vents are covered/blocked with our slides in.

Our floor vents are right down the middle so it works out just right. 3 slides create a lot more cubic feet of air space.
