Re: Replacing V berth foam material
While sleeping, the human body loses a certain amount of water through the skin and
breathing. The mattress will absorb a certain amount of this water. The moisture
absorbed by the mattress will work its way to the coldest part of the mattress, which is
the underneath of the mattress. When the moisture reaches the solid bed base it can
not proceed any further, so therefore the underneath of the mattress remains damp. My question is would a closed cell foam stop this or should moisture be allowed to travel through the foam and would those air mats that allow air to circulate be better.
