[Ansteorra] OT: Bedding dilemma

We have one we bought from a vendor. With his permission, we have allowed
others to copy ours and it works out pretty well. It is four interlocking
pieces of plywood and 4 2x4 segments that form the bottom of the bed. We
also have 3 thin sheets of plywood that sit on top of the 2x4s. You can jump
up and down on it without breaking it. 

It breaks down into a stack of lump about 4 inches thick, 6 ft long, and
about 2.5 ft wide.

In service,
Caelin on Andrede, Elfsea

Hello to the kingdom!

I have a general question and thought I would pose it to everyone to get the
most information I could.

My lady and I are sick of air mattresses and would like to move to something
a bit more dependable. What is the best bedding in terms of set up / break
down, amount of truck space it would take up, etc.

I have heard suggestions on rope beds but I've also heard that the ropes
will stretch and take a lot of maintenance. I have been looking at platform
beds but I am trying to work out an easy (and cheaper) way to make one
myself instead of buying it from a store.

We'll most likely be using a futon mattress so I am mainly looking for bed
frame ideas. What do you use currently, what have you used in the past, what
sort of problems or praises have you come across? Do you make or have have a
good bed frame that you'd like to sell? Any information, either on the list
or directly to me, would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your time,
~Morgan Blackdragon~
