    I an a newbie and I have just completed my shakedown cruise in my newly purchased (although not new) Autotrail Cherokee with and L shaped rear lounge. To make up the bed, I have to use the rear seat cushions, but have found that they separate in the night leaving an uncomfortable gap.
    My question is, is there any way to prevent this happening?

    Get yourself or yourselves a Raskalf Douvalay. Yhis is a combined memory foam topper and quilt. This will even out the lumps/gaps in the bed.

    be aware that they are quite bulky to store though.

    also try and put something at the top or bottom of the made up bed that will push the cushions together and stop them moving as you sleep

    Try different combinations with the cushions it took us a few nights to work out the best and it was the same when we had the caravan you can normally make the bed a few different ways .

    The answer is a Raskalf Douvalay. Holds the cushions together and a great nights sleep

    we have them....

    We had extra thick foam ones made by them and also to a wider size as we each use one of the double beds... they work, but as stated storage is an issue.. I have a couple of big kit bags I got from Gardeners of Wakefield - off the shelf .. £20 something each and we roll the douvalays up put a elastic around them in two places and fit the kit bags over them and then store in the shower on our RV.. we can get two of them in side by side no problems.

    No cheap items, especially if you go non standard size and also want extra spare bedding for the longer tips. Now that is fun taking them apart for washing.

    I've heard of "hanky-panky" but it's long gone from my memory, is this the same hanky panky that goes on in Marjal between Salopian and the roundabout lady?
