Upgrading the mattress

Where is a good place to buy a better mattess than what comes with the RV? I'd like to get the memory mattress or just get the mattress top to go over what we have. The size of mattress on an RV is different so t that's why I ask. Thanks.

We went with a Select Comfort through Camping World. They usually go on sale in February. It's always as comfortable as the one we have at home. They cost near 1K but well worth it. I added an electric outlet under the bed to plug it in. You can order the control holders through Winnebago Parts to mount the controls on the wall for easy access.

Thank you. Sounds like that will be much more comfortable than the standard issue one.

Sleep Number also makes mattresses for RV's as well, I don't know the prices.

I'd go with the Sleep Number or the Sleep Better Bed. They're both adjustable air mattresses and they both make RV length queens. One advantage to these beds is that they are much lighter than Memory Foam beds and since they're assembled in pieces they're much easier to manuver inside the RV.

We got a 2" memory foam topper, and the combo of the factory mattress and the topper makes a great bed. DW says it's as comfortable as the one in the house!

Oh, yeah! Bought it at Wal-Mart for around $100.

We also bought the 2" memory foam topper. We use it on the factory mattress and are totally pleased with the result. I like it as much as my pillow top mattress at home. Try this inexpensive option before spending a lot more on a new mattress.

Ok, thanks. Camping World sells one for about $150. A 7 zone mattress pad.

Ditto for us. Got ours at Costco for around $100. Have heard good things about the Sleep Number air matress but with prices well over $1000 for one of these I'll pass.
