Hi all,

I'm a new Outback 28RSS owner (picked it up a couple of weeks ago) and had a quick question for others with the same model. Ours was an order, and upon inspection and pick-up we had very little problems. The one issue I did notice (and admittedly, this is a small one) is that the lower bunks had the same sized mattress as the upper bunks (72"). Since both lower bunks are longer, this resulted in about an 8" gap between the end of the mattress and the bunk wall. Since different sized mattresses shouldn't be that hard to come by, I would have expected the manufacturer to put in one that fit. For example, the two-bunk Outbacks (at least the 25RSS and the 21RS) have shorter mattresses then mine (I think I measured 68").

The dealer didn't have any other 4-bunk Outbacks on the lot at the time. Anybody else notice this issue?

Chet.

PS - I imagine if this is the biggest problem I have with my trailer, I'm probably doing alright...

Chet we pick ours up next week, what I checked ours looked like they fit fine. Now you have me wondering. I'll add this to my check list.

Thanks Y-Guy, let me know what you find. If the mattress is slid towards the rear of the rig, the gap might be tough to miss on first inspection. It's a relatively large gap for my bunk though, on the order of 6-8 inches. Big enough for my 1.5 or 3.5 year-olds to wedge themselves into.

This must be standard issue, our's is the same way. We have not had any issues with it but our kids use the top bunks.

Our bunks are the same as well, shorter length on the lower mattress. I had noticed it during our first camp out, and that about taking them back but the twins were already using that space to store stuff (box of pokie-man cards, etc). It seems to work for now..
