Sleeping on vinyl

Post by JonnyCJ »

Anyone got any top tips for sleeping on a vinyl bed ?

My Rusty Lee full width has a very nice vinyl finish, but I'm concerned that sleeping on it will bring on the night sweats.

What do people use when camping out and sleeping on vinyl to prevent getting drenched.

Cheers

Jonny

When I had westy's with vinyl rock and roll beds I always put down a bed sheet, don't think I'd sleep on one without a bed sheet down first even if it wasn't vinyl. At least it would be "wipe clean" if you didn't put one down on vinyl ;)

I always use a bed sheet with elastic corners in my S042. Nice.

We also use a fitted sheet over a fitted cushioned mattress protector. Nice and comfortable.

Cushioned mattress protector sounds the way to go with a fitted sheet on top.

Now where's my seamstress ?!

We got a standard double one from Home Bargains for £3.99 for the sheet and £6.99 for the protector.
