    IMHO. A 4” firm latex mattress is the best. If you have the room add a memory foam topper. This is my plan for my ccv bed up top

    best homemade van build forum, expo forum for van builds seems dead

    best homemade van build forum, expo forum for van builds seems dead

    Ive been using the sportsmobile forum lately, as it seems more active than the expo homebuild van forum (this forum). This forum used to be pretty active but now it seems dead with a new post every few weeks and no replies, and the same build threads stuck here for months. Anyone know...
