    I am going to try for the airstrip too. I took the kombi for its maiden sleep out on the mother's day weekend.
    We found the bed a bit hard. Any ideas for a more comfortable sleep?

    We got a Mortels sheep skin underlay. Really thick & not cheap but so worth it. Kombi bed is now more comfortable than the bed at home:D.
    Cheers

    we have found the answer to this problem to be colourful, either red or white.
    The consumption of vino seems to do the trick for me. Doesn't really matter which, but it works.

    Note: we do use an underlay on the kombi bed, as was suggested, it does make a difference.
    But wine helps.

    Mattress topper - even the foam ones from Kmart are an improvement. I also tried a bamboo one for our trip to Bus Stop - very comfy!
    Only need a double size if you have a full width bed.

    I spoke to Wendy from Lanis today. They are not taking bookings just yet for the air strip. Apparently the council approval hasnt come through yet but they are expecting it to soon.

    We use an ‘eggshell’ type foam mattress topper from Clark Rubber. They come in 3 different qualities. I think we got the middle of the range one. It’s yellow anyway. It made a massive difference to the comfort of our bed and have slept well even on trips up to three weeks away. Double bed size did us and I cut it with scissors to fit.

    Highway robbery! We are in Lanis unpowered right next to airstrip & pay $50 per night. Poor buggers on airstrip get portaloos & a hike to the shower. Of course peeps will pay it just to be part of the weekend, just so over greedy councils

    Better than missing out if you've left it until the last moment though.....;)
    Snooze......you lose !
    As always... those that know will pay their, next year's, deposit on the way out to secure their favoured sites.
    Always posted and spoken about....but not always acted on until too late.
    Cheers,
    Mark
