A perfect storm happened this weekend, and it manifested into some knowledge.
I managed to make a little bit more progress to the bus this weekend, and I found out that I may be having some family over post holidays. I also have not been sleeping as well as I would like to lately. All of this created the need for a new sleeping surface.
It really started some 10 or so years ago. I happened across a situation where I could trade a bit of work for a lightly used Select comfort Queen. I took advantage of the opportunity. I had slept in it one night previously and had one of the best nights of sleep ever. Fast forward to present day and that mattress took a beating and died.
So we did what anyone does, we went to the store, picked up a memory foam bed, because everyone liked those, right? Well. It was okay. I didn't really like it much. Still have it today. Haven't slept well in years.
This is where the post family holiday visit comes in. My wife and I both started with next to nothing almost five years ago. So, we don't have an extra bed. Not really much space for one. But now we closed off two whole rooms of our house for non-use. It won't be that hard to turn one into a guest room... if we had a bed to put in there...
I think it's pretty obvious where this is going... We bought a new bed. It's not here yet, I will be updating when it arrives and when I get some time to sleep on it.
This bed is a little different. I first saw it here:
. and the site: https://www.tuftandneedle.com/
So I started looking into it. A bed that would leave extra headroom in my non-roof raised skoolie, at an affordable price, with great reviews... hmmm...
Anyway, from the company's mission statement to the final product it all seems to be very good and very upfront. I just hope it's as comfortable as everyone says it is.
I figured I would share this here because it's worth looking into. We all have to sleep on something, here's to hoping it can be both high quality and affordable. The bad news is, I have to build a king size bed frame for it. This also loses me some bed side storage that was planed for the bus.
One thing I really liked about it, is that they say it's built to sit on the floor, no box springs necessary. Excellent for a bus bed. Lightweight, double points. The list goes on, check it out and let me know what you guys think. I'll post a follow up with our results.
