I have seen pictures of boats with a way to store the triangle insert for the bed on the ceiling above the bed. I have never seen one in person. How does that work? Looks like a good idea. Has anyone had any experience to share with me.

Basically used a couple of pieces of wood and some aluminum strips from Lowe's hardware. I am glad I did storing that thing was a pain in the ass lol Mine has a plywood bottom but i thing you could do the same if your cushion is separate just Velcro the cushion to the plywood insert. Hope this gives you some ideas, let us know what you do in the end
