2015 mattress question

Hi all,
We went to look at our new trailer yesterday, it had just been delivered and was not ready for us to take it home, the mattresses didn't have the straps and snaps to keep them on the platform like the 2014 that we had looked at did. Does anyone have this style Shamrock or Roo and how do you keep the mattress in place. I would have asked at Peco but they were all VERY busy.
Thanks in advance.

My 2015 roo has velcro on the platform. That keeps it in place.

The velcro is on the back of the mattress near the large end window and on the platform, maybe 6 inches in from the end. Try to pick the mattress up, you will see that it is stuck down on the platform, well mine is anyway. Good luck with the new trailer, I'm having a few issues and the 231isk is 2 weeks old.

We bought a 2015 Roo 233S last month. We were instructed by the dealer to remove the mattresses and store them on the floor when not in use, with the exception of the rear bunk mattress which leans against the wall.
Our mattresses have only a little velcro near the fold which I suspect is just there to keep the mattress from moving when the bunk is down.
I don't think that that little bit of velcro would hold the mattress when up.
Good Luck. We are taking our first trip this weekend.

I'm going to check on the Velcro. If it looks as if there is not enough to hold the mattress I may just add some to the back of the mattress and to the platform. I really don't like the idea of storing the mattress on the floor. Maybe on the dinette but not on the floor.

FR has had a way of fastening the mattress to the bunk door since they first started building them.
the dealer that told you to take the mattress off, doesn't know what he's talking about.

UNLESS, FR has stopped providing an attachment system of some kind, which i'm not aware of from any of the 6 Hybrid forums i belong to.

I have a 2015 23SS and the only attachment system is a little bit of Velcro at the hinge on the door to keep the mattress from shifting. There are no straps or buttons or snaps to hold the mattress for travel. The only thing is the tent bar over the mattress but not the folded part. Or it can lean up against the TV in the stowed position but I wouldn't recommend that. Must be another cost savings for FR

I have to agree with Davylee; I just bought the 2015 Shamrock IKSS and the only attachment/restraint system on the bunks are velcro on the door. In fact the dealer rep told us to leave the harp bar under the mattress when it's in the stowed position, which makes the forward mattress flop out on the floor. It gets in the way when trying to close the slide too. I read in an earlier post that the harp bar can be stowed in the mattress though so I'm going to try that. I agree that it doesn't make any sense to store the mattress on the floor.
