    I am only on my second year of Hybrid camping.
    I always thought there was an easier way to fold in the bunks.
    I tried the close the door and turn on the fan that helped.
    I tried the undo the canvas ..... didn't help ... the support cables got into the way
    Today I tired to fold up the bunks without the mattress on the bunk ......yes we have a winner.
    My mattresses have a fold in them and will fold up with the bunk, but the bunks look so much better folded up without the mattresses and then stow the mattresses up against the folded bunks. It only take one bungee cord to hold each one.
    I just don't know why it took me so long to do it.

    I never tried the fan. I've always removed the mattresses folded the bunks then put the mattresses back up.

    Yeah I can't imagine that folding them in with the mattresses in place works all that well. I always move them off the bed, then close the bunk, then lean the mattress back up. Pretty sure that's how the dealer showed us to do it.

    We ALWAYS closed our bunk doors with folded mattresses, in our Roo 23SS. The door had snaps that the mattress straps snapped into. This held the mattresses in place, when the bunk door went vertical.
    In the 10 years we owned it, never had to remove the mattresses.
