Question Hypervent on 21' bed

Has anyone put Hypervent on their 21'? How much did you buy? Which direction did you run it? It comes 39" wide and I am thinking you could run two strips sideways. It would be 2" short but I am thinking it would work. Did you run Hypervent on the sides too?

Question Another thought on Hypervent...

After thinking about it some more, maybe running strips lengthwise and letting the Hypervent wrap up each side of mattress would be better?

That is what I did and be sure and have the mattress cut 2-4" smaller to allow the venting material around the sides. It needs to breathe to operate. I just doubled it over around the sides and head, have not had any issues. The Travasak covers the entire bed wall to wall.

Jim,
Do you have the fabric side against the outer (vinyl) wall of your 21? I'd be concerned about the non-fabric side damaging the wall.

Bump to an old thread

And

Is anyone else using Hypervent on a 21'?

And it is my understanding that ETI won't do custom mattress sizes at all

We are having the dinette in our 19" custom made to a permanent bed with a real mattress, so I guess that would be a "custom mattress size".

I thought they had one cut down for Jim.

FWIW, One of the local mattress companies (Yankee, the only one I asked), will make them to your spec. You could have ETI skip the mattress and have your own made from a local to you manufacturer.

Or make your own mattress. Using 6" of closed cell foam with 2" of memory foam and then 2.5" of latex we have comfort similar to a $3K latex mattress....firm yet cushy for about $600.

I may be mistaken, it will not be the first time, but when I asked about having the new queen bed cut down 2" around for the same reason I did in BlackJack, I was told it is already being done as standard, in other words Escape is having the mattress made a tiny bit smaller to allow the "no touching" rule with the mattress. Can not observe this until I get my Prairie Schooner, but hoping it is true.

Our 19, we picked up two weeks ago, does have room between the wall and mattress.
