I was not even aware that this was an option. I thought the choices were Jackknife or air bed. Could it be that I actually have the air bed sofa with no mattress? This foldout does have lots of padding like a mattress. Is this perhaps the foundation of the air bed?

Interestingly, in the bag of instructions that I received there was a sheet with the airbed warranty.
What does your sofa look like when you have it opened?

We have a 2013 with the air bed. A little over a year of ownership and the seams started popping. That made it unusable. We were at a state park when it really got bad and I had to drive to a Walmart and buy a new air mattress and inflator. We are still using that. I contacted RVW when we got home and they contacted Forest River. Sent some pictures and they ended up sending me a new air mattress with a separate inflator so now we have a spare.

pick up lower cushion, push and hold sofa rearward toward wall, set cushion back down. That should do it

I seen a video at FR of the new sofa bed. It appears that the mattress is built in. Look under "tools" and you will find it. I'm wondering how a 3 or 4 inch mattress topper would work, instead of the air bed.

I have the air bed option on my 23IKSS and have had no issues. Works great every time. Guess I am one of the lucky one's on here.

When folding out the hide bed / couch in a 30ft vlite is it best to put an air mattress on top for comfort? If so, what size.....double or queen?

CaptainJohn, this thread is in the Hybrid section and is about a Roo 23IKSS, which I'm sure has a much smaller sofa bed, than a 30' V-lite has.
The biggest FR hybrid is only about 24' long.
