Interesting post. Just wondered where you got this information from? Was it direct from the makers?Just a public service announcement - if you have a self-inflating mattress then do not store it for long periods of time super squashed or having sucked every ounce of air out - it will lose its ability to expand because the foam/springs become permanently compressed. So you will find it does not self-inflate fully any more and its insulating properties will be lost.
This is well known in the camping world - sleeping bags, self inflating mattresses or basically anything that is foam, down or springs should be long term stored in at least a semi-inflated state.
Those storing in the roof with the standard mattress removed will be OK I am sure but if you suck everything out of it to store it in there with the original mattress then dont do that for long periods of time.
Jusr saying... I ignored the advice and ended up having to replace a sleeping bag and mattress that were previously great for camping.
What happens to the brand-new mattress sitting on the shelf for months before being sold?
