Morning all, we need HELP! We have just bought a 1995 compass drifter merit 360e. We have gone away to york and when we went to put up the lounge bed last night spent about an hour trying to configure the cushions. I dont know whether we're dumber than we think but could not work it out. There doesn't seem to be enough cushions to make the double let alone the king size bit. We have the kitchen at the back, longe in the middle and double bed above cab. Tried to use the small cushions to fiill the gaps. Ended up with a heath Robinson bed which was quite uncomfortable. Can anyone point meinthe direction of a website to help or a simple explanation. Thanks Gary and Mandy

Hi, Gary & Mandy

Our Compass is different to yours (it's a Compass) so doubt that we can help. Have looked for motorhome dealers in York area, as they may have been able to help, but there doesn't seem to be any. Are you staying on a campsite? If so, maybe you could ask advice from other campers? Do you still have seller's phone number?

Hope you can get it sorted out before tonight.

Perhaps if you could post a couple of photos? I'd imagine you'd put the longest cushions the direction in which you are lying, then smaller ones filling in head and/ or feet areas.

Full timing for five years and loving it!
Holly will be right in that the one piece foam that is normally the seating will be your "bed" and all the bits will fill in the gaps. Should be comfortable laid on those.

Thanks for your suggestions, the cushions did in fact need to go lengthways. Why didn`t I think of that DOH!!
All sorted and had a good nights sleep last night
