While I reckon that with more modern craft the cotton thing is somewhat over blown I'd have to agree with Miata re no Futons. Cotton sheets may well take in more moisture than synthetic but they dry out quickly, a damp futon is not to be imagined.

For mine, a good nights sleep is most important (I'm old, these days beds are for sleeping .... sigh ) and I do plan on having a custom made mattress made and damn the expense.

Regarding the Frolli gizmos ..... how easy are they to pack up if you need to access under the v-berth ? I've been a bit wary of them.
