First purchase we made after sleeping one night on the mattress that came with the coach was a Sleep Number Mattress. Yes they are expensive but we've had one at home since 1997. I've had two back surgeries and the support from the Sleep Number Mattress gives me a great night's sleep and no back issues in the morning. That one night sleep if you want to call it that was very restless. I awoke the next morning with an extremely sore back. It had to go!

Sleep Number Bed

Get yourself a sleep number bed, we did several years ago and have transfered it from RV to RV as we upgraded. You won't be sorry.

We tried to do that. Sleep Number has gone out of business in Canada and I am told they are on there way out in the states as well.
We had to settle for something different.

I know Camping World still has them (Sleep Number Beds) available. We purchased a short Queen for our unit. They are about $1,000.00 US.

Hey Polka,

I got a new short queen mattress I'd sell for $150. Slept on it 5 nights. Liked it so much my wife bought me a new trailer. Didn't let it go with the old trailer we sold. If you're ever in south Mississippi, I'll fix you up!

We also dislike the standard mattress. We have a sleep number at home but didn't want to go that route just yet. We had two twin size air mattresses that we put "under" the mattress. So far, so good.

I am looking at the Aveena Mattress currently on sale at Camping World for $499.00, there are a couple of really good reviews on them. The nice thing about Camping World is a 90 day return policy if you don't soil or damage them. Anyone heard anything about these mattresses?

Thanks, Forrest

I took a regular Beauty Rest pillow top mattress (just the mattress, no box springs) and put it in the place of the mattress that came in my unit. It fits just fine and makes for a MUCH better night's sleep.

I donated the brand new factory mattress to Goodwill and put my sleep number mattress in it's place. I also use a memory foam topper. I bought an extra fitted bottom sheet to put on the mattress and another on the topper. It's MUCH easier to make a corner bed that way.

The only challenge is frequent changes in the firmness when traveling thru different altitudes. It gets rock hard in the mountains.
