Updated Sleeping Solution for 2018
 
For those wishing a simple sleeping solution, take a look at what I found on Amazon today.

Basically, this is an two part inflatable mattress with an included inflatable support.
This system was designed to be used as a backseat sleep system for a car, but you could just as easily use it in our Xterra.

The inflatable support would take the place of using the "Action Packers" which were all familiar with.
In addition, you gain an inflatable mattress which can be laid down lengthwise for additional sleeping comfort.

Lastly, this system will take up minimal space when camping as it can be deflated when not in use.

Ok, there are several designs which can be found on Amazon that may be an even better design than this one.
For those willing to search, let us know if you come across something better.

Thatís an interesting option but 57Ē is too short for most people I think.

What?

Aren't we all 4'8" or less.

:)

The support was what caught my eye.
Your right, the mattress is best left to children.

that would be great if you HAD to sleep in a CAR. but the x has such better sleeping options i would only be inclined to use that if for some reason you COULD NOT fold down the seats.

i much prefer sleeping in the X with the seats folded. its almost a perfect bed.

I suspect you missed an important point regarding my origional post.
When the rear seats are dropped most people will still desire an extra foot of room(unless your a rather short man).

For this reason, Xterra owners will drop their rear seat's and place two action packers in front of the rear seats as an extended platform.

Yes, the product which I shared was designed to support a mattress in the back seat of a car, but it could also take the place of the Action Packers which are currenly being used in our Xterras. Throw away the small air mattress which is included if you so wish, the mattress support is what of need.

The action packers can serve the purpose of adding extra storage and may yet be the best option available.
However, action packers are getting harder to find, and those which have different needs may find this item to provide another option to extend their sleeping platform.

Where are you getting that extra space? When I fold my seats down there is no space there. the seat bottoms fold up and that serves as the backrest (headboard) of my bed. I could use an extra couple inches though as I sleep diagonal in the back to really stretch out.

Also good luck on the truck bedz. they have been out of stock for 3 years or more. I bought a vinyl one as a test which worked beautifully till the vinyl leaked. (expected) and now want to upgrade to the expedition version. I've been on there list for years. They are basically out of production. If you see some in stock let me know

I'm pretty sure most people just completely take the back seats out using the red levers.
