Thread: Minimate sleeping

    Minimate sleeping

    Here's a simple survey.

    Do you sleep with your head and shoulders on the folded out trailer lid?

    Or is your head and shoulders on the plywood above the main body of the trailer?

    Thank you

    When I had mine: your head and shoulders on the plywood above the main body of the trailer?

    That is my plan for this summer. I slept with my head over the lid because of my cpap machine. Now the hinge is failing and I no longer use a cpap machine.

    I've gotten accustomed to sleeping with my head and shoulders on the lid. I find it easier to sit up and then stand up in the morning.

    I usually sleep with my head on the lid unless I’m not quite level. Then I’ll
    turn the other way.

    When I spoke with Dennis at Kompact Kamp, he mentioned you are supposed to put the heavist part of your body over the camper, which is typically your lower body.

    I'm 3 XL and I sleep head out on the Lid.
    But I wondered if I was doing it right.
    I also find it easier to set up and get out.
    I replaced the wood with 3/4 plywood.
    Because I ride alone I leave the small pad
    at home. Sleeping my way. I can access my Kindle,
    glasses, and flashlight. The other way with the little
    pad missing, no place for the stuff I need in the night,
    up by my head... $80 motels limited my trips some. My camper is great.
    My 15 day Canada trip $30 was avg. campground cost I think.

    I have thought if the leg failed how it would feel. LOL

    Thanks everyone for your replies. As suspected, either way works.

    I thought about leg failure when I had a bear under the bed board on our Aspen Ambassador. He was trying to get into the Tote that had the food. He got all the food, but he didn't get me, thank goodness.

    If that happened to me, I would have traded the Aspen in for a room at the Holiday Inn on a permanent basis!
