The response

Which cushions to use is a puzzle. I use the dinette seat back cushions. They are contoured so they make a lumpy bed. They also don't fit the table exactly and as aresult they stick out slightly. To smooth out the lumps, I bought a small memory foam mattress and lay it over the cushions. I role up the memory foam and store it in the v-berth when not in use.

Everyone who has slept on this bed says it is very comfortable. I've never used it myself.
