Re: [RC] [RC] staying warm at rides - Carla Richardson

That's true, insulation helps, and makes it quieter too.  
Under my sleeping bag, I use a 1 1/2" foam pad (egg crate style) with a fleece throw over it.  It makes it more comfortable, plus an insulation from the ground or the metal "floor" of my Bronco.  Those foam pads cost about $10 at Wal-Mart, you can also get thicker ones.  I have a twin bed size, you can get larger ones.

If you sleep in a camper, or in the nose of a gooseneck trailer, also consider if the cold is coming up from below you. Make sure you have insulation, or even a tarp under your bed. Not all campers and LQ trailers have been insulated the same, and I found that I was feeling the cold from below me. Kind of like the days of tent camping and putting a barrier down on the ground under your bedding.
