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.
