What do you think of a trailer, or hitch-mounted pop-up, or a roof-top tent as options? Does a hinged and folding mattress sound friendly to your back?
Thinking about such RVs... When I used Moon Unit as an RV I identified access to a good daily shower as a top priority. I'd want an indoor shower (vs portable camp showers) so at least that area needs standing room. Too bad then that the choices seem to be mostly between huge frontal area or collapsible roof.

Re: bedding: having "slept" on air mattresses, tent sleeping bag pads, sofa-sleepers, and futons, I'd probably insist on a real, regular, non-folding mattress. Not worth compromising if the result is tossing and turning all sleepless night.
