We no longer carry the "Charleston 2" which had the 4.5" slat spacing. The "Charleston Plus" has been renamed to the "Charleston" and still has a slat spacing of 2.8".
The twin trundle now has more slats! With a slat spacing of 2.8 inches, it is sure to meet the requirements of most mattresses on the market today. The twin trundle fits under all sizes of the Nomad and Charleston beds. We recommend a mattress thickness of no more than 7 inches to comfortably glide under the bed. The weight limit of the twin trundle is 400 pounds.
I occasionally have customers ask what prevents their mattress from sliding around on the platform bed frame. Like I've mentioned in a previous post, I have 2 of our frames at my home. Personally, I have not noticed this problem, but when customers do inquire, I refer them to this: GORILLA GRIP MATTRESS GRIPPER sold on Amazon. I've never used this product, but looking at reviews it seems to do the trick. If anyone out there tries this, we would love to hear some feedback! Have a great day!
I've had customers ask for a good solution to prevent their bed from sliding around on hardwood or tile floors. I recently set up a queen Roanoke in our guest bedroom which has hardwood floors. Before assembling the frame I put these RUBBER GRIPS, sold on Amazon, on the bottom of each leg, and it worked like a champ. I've tried the peel and stick grips before and they tend to come off over time, but these rubber feet screw in and are really stable!
People often ask us what's the difference in the Nomad 2 and the Nomad Plus? It's a great question and is rather confusing. The only difference is the number of slats that come with each bed. For years, we made the "2" version which has a slat spacing of 4.5 inches. This worked great until memory foam and latex mattresses came along and became more and more popular. Often, the warranty with these mattresses required a slat spacing of 3 inches or less. We didn't want to add slats (and therefore cost) to all of our Nomads, so we decided...
