My Compact seat cushions and backrests are made so that when laid out on the bed base they make a comfortable full size bed mattress. I KISS by "bedding"...two nice quality adult sized sleeping bags and good pillows, which I store in my non converted closet. I store the original pipe cot...pipes and canvas on the back shelf over the window and use the two original straps hanging through the slots to strap it in so it does not bounce around. If you have fancy "bedding" that won't store well in an active closet, consider designating one under bench storage area, bedding storage or consider storing it in your tow vehicle (I guess)
Like vintagebruce, we keep the pole cots in the little thingie above the table in back. The seat cushions, also like vb, act as a mattress. The bottom sheet gets folded and rolled and stowed in a basket next to the towels in a basket in one of the overhead bins. We have FOUR down pillows that compress quite nicely during the daytime into bolster covers that match the curtains and serve as arm (or head) rests during the daytime. That leaves the down comforter. We have a compression bag for it, and it lives under the table during the daytime. We made the decision, even before we got the trailer, that we wouldn't take anything that we couldn't keep inside. Grandkids stretch that a little, but so far, we haven't had to carry a lot of stuff in the car.
