I am usually the passenger in our Patrol and my head is alongside the door pillar and seat belt mechanism. This could prove rather uncomfortable on our upcoming 3-month trek.

Does anyone have any ideas as to how I can fasten a cushion/air bag or something?!
Thanks

Hi Sandie,

How about some adhesive velcro tape. Stick one side of the velcro tape to the pillar, the other side to the cushion. And then attach the cushion to the pillar with the velcro. You can get the velcro at places like Lincraft, etc.

You can then place or remove the cushion at will.

Hope that helps!

Great idea! Thanks Savvas! (Glad to hear that no needlework is involved; just sticky-tape. Can't handle sewing....)

Alternatively, stick one side of the velcro to your head. Then you can attach the pillow to your head when feeling sleepy and be comfortable wherever you are (even if nowhere near the B pillar) :-)Bob

Hi Sandie........
If you're going to be lucky enough to be spending 3 months trekking about the countryside, why would you want to nod off and rest your head on the "B" pillar? ......Just kidding!!!
We usually carry one or 2 of our pillows in the front and when wife or kid/s want to doze off they grab one (from up behind the back seat/ near cargo barrier) and stick it between their scone and the door/pillar. Works okay.
Happy travelling.
Cheers,
Roachie

Hey Sandie,

My missus is bit like you, likes a kip whilst travelling, she invested in a small camping pillow, about $15-$20 and is about 1/3 size of a normal pillow. She swears by it, it sits in that little area your taking about (we have a Patrol as well) or can be put be hind the neck as well. I've used it as well, its comfy.
Avail from most camping stores.

Hey come on Frank. It's Marty, Sandie's hubby. Sandie thinks I'm and excellent, smooth driver on the rough stuff, but sometimes you just hit that rock that doesn't move out of the way.

If the emdroiding is a picture of a fish, it i'll use it.
