If we do not get away one weekend a month over the winter, it is rare. Then spring and summer and fall is rally times.

Got stopped many moons ago by a state trouper in central Pennsylvania who let me go with the warning, "...and remember, this is God's country." I knew it!

I guess I need to learn about the HyperMesh. And a heated mattress pad sounds like a great idea!

There's threads on here about the hypermesh. Not everyone uses or needs it. This is where I got mine from:

HyperVent Mattress Pads - HyperVent | Fisheries Supply

I have a heated mattress pad at home and only use it to warm up the bed before I get in and then it gets shut off. What I do use, however, throughout most of the night, if it's nippy out, is a heated pad by just my feet. I find I don't like the heat around my upper body, but my feet sure loves it.

This is different from mine as it has multiple heat settings - mine is only off or on, so I might get one like this when mine die (I have one for home and the trailer).

Electric Foot Of The Bed Warmer | Bed Foot Warmer | CozyWinters

or from Amazon, there's this one:

Thanks Jim! I had that one in the 13" version in my Scamp but let it go when we sold it. The grandkids use it for watching DVD's. I'm now looking for a 15 for when we get our new escape. The reviews didn't seem the best for the sound. Don't remember a problem with sound on the 13". Please let me know if your sound is bad and I think I will order that one.
