Zenbivy MotoBed™ Owner's Manual

*These are the instructions for setting up the new 2023 MotoBeds™ which do not include a mattress. Older styles of the MotoBed™ include a dual-layer mattress.

Setting up your Zenbivy MotoBed™

Congrats on your new Zenbivy MotoBed™! We're excited to get you out on your adventures as comfortably as possible. Let's get to it...

Step 1: Insert the mattress

Inflate the mattress you plan to use with the MotoBed™. (Instructions on inflating Zenbivy brand mattresses can be found here). Locate the fitted sheet and undo the snaps on the foot end. Valve end first, slide the mattress into the sheet and snap to secure it closed.

Step 2: Set up the footbox 

This step is optional. Some people like to use the quilt as a flat blanket on warm nights. To close the footbox, find the zippers on either side of the bottom of the quilt. Fold the two sides together so the male and female sides of the zippers line up. Zip it! You can stop here if you like the nice cooling draft the open foot box provides. If you do want to close it up tight, snap the snap you see underneath the zipper and, finally, grab the cinch cord and close the foot box of the quilt. This will create a full thermal seal and keep your feet warm when it's chilly out.

Step 3: Zip the quilt to the sheet

Line up the zipper on the quilt to the zipper on the "wing" of the sheet and zip. It's up to you whether you want to zip both sides or just one. You could even leave it completely free, though we do recommend keeping at least one side zipped so the quilt doesn't slide away from you in the middle of the night.

Step 4: Tuck in your pillow

Stuff your favorite pillow from home into the included pongee pillowcase and tuck that into the hood to keep it in place.

Step 5: Catch some zzz's

That's it! Hop in and enjoy a great night's sleep.

When it's time to pack up in the morning, simply pop the plug on the mattress out completely to release all the air and roll the entire thing up, starting from the foot end. (You do not have the take the mattress out of the fitted sheet each time, but you can if you would like to of course).

If you want to get the tightest roll, you can flip the valve to the "deflate" side, with the large green valve surface facing outward, and kneel around to squish out even more air. Once you're done rolling, clip together the holding strap. Pop that bedroll into the storage bag and roll the top down, clipping the ends to secure it and create a carry strap.

Step 6: Storage at home

To pack for long-term storage first ensure the sleeping bag is completely dry. Then simply open the storage bag, pull the mattress valve plug out completely, and loosen the holding strap so that the entire bed can expand/inflate as much as possible. Leave the bag top unrolled (or loosely rolled) and put the whole thing in storage. Make sure the space you store it in is dry and not-humid. When it comes time for the next trip, pack it back up for transport as noted in step 5.
