Airstream Interstate 24GT Bed Topper

If you have purchased the Bed Topper from Airstream Supply, for an Airstream Interstate GT, what are your thoughts? Do you like it? Is it easy to put in place? And is it worth the $400.00 + ?

We have the Airstream bed topper for our AI 24 GT EXT and love how comfortable it is. Getting it into place is not a problem at all, however, getting it stowed in the rear overhead takes some effort since it is thick, heavy and doesn't want to stay folded. As such, when we are in getting down the road mode we leave the bed made up. When we are parked for awhile we stow it over head for the additional room which is really nice. $400 is a lot for a topper but it is extremely comfortable and it completely eliminates all the lumps and bumps that are on the folded seats. We would do it again. We ordered two sets of sheets that are made to fit the bed with the topper so it was just shy of $1000 but still worth it all in all.

Thank you for your info. as it is very helpful. Considering the bed topper cannot be returned I have been reluctant to give it a try.

We have a bed topper that's a foam mattress which easily folds into thirds. We leave the couch down and the bed made all the time. However, during daytime we flop the foot of the bed (bottom third) over onto the middle section, pop up the jump seats and reclaim that as a seating area. I guess you could call it a pseudo murphy bed? Anyhow, as of now that seems to work best for us.


Generically, it's something like any one of these foldable mattresses. Don't know which one we actually have, as it came with our used van (topper was never used by the previous owner, who never actually slept in the van). Probably not super-expensive, but it works.

Like Rocinante, we have a third-party topper (Brooklyn Bedding, the same company from which we purchased our home queen mattress (built-in topper) and box) for our 2016 AI Lounge Ext. We also fold the bottom third during the day to reclaim the jump seats. The main effect this provides is a bit more aisle, which is so critical in this van.
