Thats more like it.

I whined earlier on the general discussion forum about how I havent got to camp yet this year. Then *boom!* went camping two weekends in a row. Ah, felt great. Spent the 4th of july weekend on our lake lot, and we had our annual 'adult float trip' last weekend.

Now that I have put a 3/4 inch piece of foam under the matress to level up the hump from the ledge to the bunk floor, I found the bed to be much more comfortable. I'm loving this camper more and more. The weather was unseasonably cool this weekend, so we left the A/C off and unzipped the bunk flaps. What a marvelous way to sleep. I even tried making biscuits in the oven for the first time. Turned out pretty good, provided you watch them like a hawk.

I even managed to get it set back in the driveway on one pull. Normally, to miss my garage, neighbors mailbox, and assorted vehicles littering my driveway, I gotta back up and pull forward 2 or three times. Not yesterday. All the stars aligned and it slipped into its spot like I knew what I was doing.

Probably true! I'm pretty good at backing trailers, but I lose my mind every now and then. Once, when backing the High School Band equipement trailer into the same hole where the Roo sits, I managed to put 2 holes in the trailer skin, tore a gutter and downspout off the garage (and flattend the downspout to boot) and knocked my shed off its blocks. And of course, every neighbor I have was outside at the time.

I did capture the parking job with the Roo on my security camers. I ahve been studying the footage so I can see exactly what the distances and angles were so I maybe do it again.

Tim...oh my god that was so funny a read! I have been in your shoes before, best backup ever was with absolutely nobody around to see it!! And as for damaging a band trailer....I cut a parking lot U-turn too tight and bent the fender and trashed the decorative hub sleeve/cover...something my fellow equipment crew team mates NEVER let me live down!

What/where did you find the foam to level under your mattress??
I have the same problem, feeling like I am always rolling downhill and would like to do the same....are you able to leave that foam in place when closing the bunk ends up for traveling?

I got the foam at Home Depot. Comes in various sizes (thickness). Yes, I leave it in place when stowing the bunk. I was gonna put some Velcro in to hold it in place, but it turns out that it is not necessary.
