    Ah, bling. I also leave the side guys attached (dutch fishhooks), and just throw them into the tarp as I roll it up before sliding the mesh snakeskin over it. Never any tangles.

    I've put a very thick 30" wide pad in a RR and it worked well enough, but was a tight fit. A 2.5" pad, 28 - 30" wide, might be perfect. Even with a 25" wide XLite, I still get cold elbows/triceps.
