[RC] insulating/anything better than air mattress? - Karen Bratcher

I had some 1/2" thick carpet pad leftover and laid that down in the gooseneck for insulation.  Even that helped.  (it also helps keep things from sliding around so much up there in transit  :-)  But I also use a cheap camping foam pad on top of the air mattress because the mattress by itself is too cold for me. 
 
By the way I hate the air mattress, it is too narrow to be real comfortable, but also too long for the gooseneck, a few inches hangs out over the edge.  Every time I get out to pee (often!) it scoots out further.  Plus the darn thing has pinhole leaks and is only semi-inflated by morning.  Is there anywhere that sells gooseneck-shaped real mattresses?  Or should I just get a sheet of thick foam and cut it to fit?
