So I've just bought an Octavia estate so I can sleep in the back (I'm quite short). Unfortunately it hasn't got the raised boot so there is a big ridge where the seats don't fold flat. Figure the easiest solution is to pad it with some thick foam so if anyone has some going for cheap that would be handy! Unless anyone had a better suggestion? I'm in Manchester so could come get it anywhere not miles away.

Have you tried levelling it with one/ 2 bouldering mats Maddie? One folded pad did this perfectly in my roomster.

Unless you can do this with mats you'll be eating storage space you probably want to keep with foam so you might do better cutting some ply to fit and blocking that up so you can put gear underneath it. you'll probably need to do this in two or more bits to make access to your gear easier.

The ruler is 1m long.  The foam is 3 inches thick.  Our kids slept on it in out previous van - very comfy!

How about a thick thermorest? That way you're not eating up luggage space when you don't need it.
