Since I sold my RTT I was looking for a decent mattress that is not to bulky,but can at least support my weight.
I think I found it.
I got in touch with these guys http://www.carmaquip.co.za/Carma_Quip_-_About_Page.html
I took the plunge and ordered 2.It takes about 2 weeks to make.I finaaly got it today and man I am impressed.
It cost R750 each.It looks really well made.I think it is maybe a bit to bulky for hiking,bur perfect for the Lux
Specs:
LENGHT : 1.95 m
WIDTH : 0.70 m
THICKNESS : 60 mm
WEIGHT : 3.5 kg
