Since we're driving out anyway seems like it wouldn't be too much trouble to tow our Ikea futon in the trailer with everything else, or maybe just the mattress.
My main concern is that even with a zip-up cover, we might never get the dust out of the futon mattress. Thoughts?
I have a very bad lower back, bring the futon mattress if you can, leave the frame. You'll be glad you sacraficed a mattress. I've reused my upholstered pads from BM 2010, they seem OK.
I brought the above ^^ foam pads but too narrow, I will probably need to haul my used but cherished tempurpedic out there too, in my Yukon, it'll work out very well. Schweet!
Seems for travelers from afar, an air mattress and a 2 to 4 inch thick memory foam pad over that and finish with some good sheets and sleeeping bags, the kind that zip together are great...most brands zip to eachother if I recall correctly.
In my costco carport, the dust would get over a 1/4 inch thick in wind storms after a day or so.
The tent inside the carport was fairly dust free, with more diligence I could've shieled it better but wtf, it's epic BRC desert camping afterall!
Rubbermades kept the gear dust free, a broom or towel helped too
I'm the MAN in a truck, burner who is stuck, you're in luck! I'll whip out my BIG tow chain and not charge you, not even one lousy buck!
