Not exactly cheap, That was around £240.

But when you think that it’s completely made to measure and normal memory foam mattresses aren’t cheap anyway, I don’t think it’s too bad!

For custom made I dont think that's too bad, might have to get one once I'm happy with the back of mine

£240 is relatively cheap for custom mattress as far as I can tell. How thick is that mattress?

15cm, that’s the thickest i could have for that price.

Seems like a good depth though, I was tempted to go thinner means as the caddy is lacking a little headroom, but glad I didn’t.

This is a really nice build!

I'm keen to do something similar, also to go on mountain bike trips. It's nice to get some inspiration on here.

I'm curious to know what length that mattress is? How do you find it to sleep in?

Thanks!

It’s 163cm, which may sound short! But I move the drivers seat all the way forward when parked up, and the pillow sort of rests on the back of the headrest.

Then somehow all 6’1” of me can lay perfectly flat, albeit with my feet hanging off the end.

Haven’t spent a night in It yet, but lying down on it is very comfortable!

That does sound short! Good to know that you can lie flat though. I've heard of people making hinged head extensions for sleeping, maybe I'll look into that.

Haven’t really done much to the outside, but I’m pretty happy with how it looks.

Really nice build with this, the rear looks so good and would put some hotels to shame
