We always tent camped with inflatable mattresses until recently. The queen mattresses that came with our 21SS hybrid seem OK. Oddly, the Coleman pillows we used tent camping seem to be insufficient now for some reason. Going to try regular pillows next trip and see how that goes. Also was wondering if I did add a topper to the electric mattress will we still feel the heat through it?

Im happy with our mattress, but was looking at getting a feather bed topper.
I was afraid that the memory foam would be hot too. That's why I bought the one I linked. It's a 2" memory foam with a 2" poly fiber pad on top of that. Make it breathable. And much cheaper then the vented memory foam that they advertise in motorhome magazine.

On the hybrids the mattress fold at about 1/3 in to allow you to fold and store it directly in front of the closed bunk. What are people doing with it during travel if you replace them with a regular mattress?

Thanks all for your great advise. I found an outfit in down that makes mattress' They are making me a 3.5in foam pillow top that fits over the mattress.

By the way, I asked about using memory foam. He could do it but advised against. Says it gets too hot and when the coach gets cold, the foam gets quite rigid and unresponsive. Take it for what it's worth.

Cheers and thanks again
Ken

Ditto for papap. We used the memory foam from Sam's club. Works super. We have a sleep number in our 378 so we put the memory foam on the sleep sofa. The sleep number can be a bit spendy but our coach came with it. They are nice. Sleep like a baby.............

Heh...if it gets too cold, we ain't camping! And we've never had any problem with it getting hot and not breathing.

I totally agree. The 374s stock mattress is junk. We only survived our first 2 weeks with it. Of course, I'm a tree trunk and require a very high quality mattress. We ordered 2 twin sleep numbers our 2nd week out and had them shipped to my Father in Laws. He received them and made the 4 hour trip to bring them to use last week, what a guy.

Our old mattress was 73 x 75. The twins are 37 1/2 x 75...or 75 x 75 for 2 twins side by side. They have just enough give to fit into the Bed slide. The corners not having a radius is no problem, don't even notice. We placed a 72 x 75 feather top on we found in PA, and picked up the smallest king sheets we could find. It's all a perfect fit and barely notice the seam between us. They were regularly 649 each and picked them up on sale for 449 each.

Awesome, comfortable, and well worth it.
