I am just checking in with other new Roo owners to see how they are closing their beds.
Our 2016 doesn't have snaps/straps etc. We have velcro at the fold of the mattress and bottom of the door. During my PDI, the tech closed the beds by folding and pulling the mattress out completely and standing it up just inside the bed door opening. He let hoop bar fall flat on the bed door and put the shepherd's pole between the fold in the mattress. The bed door was very easy to close like this (made even easier when I use the vent fan trick posted here
The problem with the above technique is that, even with my best attempt to wedge/stand the mattresses up near their respective doors, they end up falling over, dumping the shepherd's pole (loose shepherd's pole!
) onto the floor during travel.
I am not completely unhappy with this approach as I am thinking I can find a better way or storing the mattresses for travel. I like this approach as it does make for a very easy/solid bed door closing--big priority there.
But I would love to here how other folks with new Roos handling closing up their beds in general.
