Additional pad needed for AI 19 bed?

We've ordered a new Interstate 19 and will probably go with a king size Superbag for bedding. Do those of you who have this setup find it sufficiently comfortable or do you recommend additional padding such as a mattress topper of some type. Obviously, storage is a concern.

probably depends on your own preference -it is acceptable w/o some type of pad, but if it is going to be more than a weekend (even then) I always bring an “egg-crate” foam type pad.

if I have a couple of whiskies before going to bed I can tolerate it a lot more w/o

Additional pad needed for AI 19 bed?

Has anyone tried something like a Thermarest pad for more comfortable sleeping on the lounge? They don't take up much room when compressed and probably add enough comfort to do the job. We currently have a big nice-quality 3-part fabric-covered foam pad that folds up into thirds and fits behind the lounge, between the lounge and the rear door. (It came with our used unit, so we have no idea who made it.) It's comfortable, but it's just so big and takes up so much room that we're hoping to find a solution that doesn't eat up so much space when not in use.

Yes I took out side seats and raised area about 5 inches for more storage. We use 2 Thermarest pads which work great. One can walk further back and sit down without having to crawl in.

Here's a link to the post on the "From She To Me" YouTube channel in which she constructs two roll-up topper pads for the bed on their Pleasure-Way Ascent, which is also built on the Sprinter 19' chassis.

That unit has a large overhead bin above the couch, which the AI 19 does not have, in which they store the rolled up pads. However, on another of her videos, she discusses the Vancillary shelf kit for building and installing a shelf above the front seats, which looks like an excellent way to create more storage space.
