    When taking down your pup do you leave your pillows on your bed or do you place them on the dinnet once down. We have a 2009 Yearling and it seems the pillows are not going to be able to stay on the bed. [PU]

    We use are bed pillows from home and they go in TV before we drop the PUP down. I do have to put the 2 inch memory foam mattress topper on the dinette cause the top wont go down completely if left on the bed.

    We had 2" memory foam on our bunk, so had to stash the pillows and most of the bedding when we closed down. (Having to unmake and remake the bed, stashing the pillows and bedding in addition to to other things such as clothing duffels, was one reason we went to a TT with a bed that stays made up.)
    You can do a tissue box test to see how much space you have. Put an empty tissue box on the bunk, close the roof. The height of the now-squished box when you open the roof again is the space left when the roof is down.

    We have a set of special pillows that stay in the camper. They are smaller than regular pillows - maybe half size. They don't take up much space, but we still place them off the bunks when folding down. They have their own custom pillow cases and so on. Works fine for us as we don't need much for pillows to sleep.

    In my unit, we can't even leave the mattress topper on the bunk. We take the topper and all pillows out of the PUP.

    We normally bring our pillows from the house, but I also keep some pillows in Pup storage for when we "forget". But I believe we have room to leave the pillows on the bunk... we keep all the other bedding on the bunks when in storage.

    In my old Jayco I couldn't even leave a thin blanket on the bed. There was just no room on the bunks and roof. My new to me camper has at least a small Gap, but sure not enough for pillows. Since I have to use a special neck pillow I just use the one for home however I did buy a small kids pillow to keep in the camper. I bought a space bag to collapse the blankets, pillow down for easy storage.
