Is it ever a problem that it opens to the rear?
no. it is not a problem that it opens to the rear. some folks just like to flip forward. the product as obtainable works just fine flipping rearward. i happen to like flipping rearward. i ran into a tree this week in a campground, had to clamp it closed and move the truck. would have been a problem just as much trying to flip forward. note to self, do not go to campgrounds or parking lots. i particularly like the cover that opening rearward provides, great shade and shelter from rain...
so just to recap...it is not a problem to open to the rear.

Curious if anyone's added a mattress topper to a Habitat? We find that the stock mattress is pretty good but we would prefer a bit more cushion and I had an extra 3" memory foam topper in my old flippac.

We tried the 3" topper for a bit, but it was too bulky and rolling it up every time was a pain. It was much more comfortable. We ended up taking the mattress out and putting an Exped Duo, which has the added benefit of making it easier to close the top.

I have a cushy thermarest I throw on top of the mattress I open the valve and close the top. Very comfortable. I also made a sheet for the mattress.
