We haven't bought anything yet, but it looks like the Tempur-pedic 4" topper is the way we'll go. By the way, have you figured out where to put the sewer hose? The little hole on the left isde is only 18" deep! I can't figure out where to put the hose.

We just bought a 2" memory foam topper from Target for our mattress. We have the shorter "camper" mattress and we had to cut about 4 inches off the length of the foam. The camper sheets fit, but just barely. I can't imagine them working with a 4" topper. We'll be trying out the new set up this coming weekend on our first trip of the season. I'm hoping for any improvement! Last year, it took me two nights to adjust before I could fall asleep on the mattress we have.

I have Original Mattress factory stores in the area. Can you give me a ballpark figure on the cost of the custom mattress. I'd like to go in that direction rather than a topper if the money works out.
Thanks for posting.

You can order a mattress from foambymail.com and they will make it in any size, thickness and firmness you desire. Very reasonably piced. I was quite happy with the one I purchased from them.

I've ordered 2 bunk mattresses from foambymail.com and my in-laws were very pleased with them. I'm actually awaiting an order for another for my daughter's bunk and replacement cushions for my dinette. I highly recommend them.

Mattress & Sewer connection

Thanks for the continuing tips on the mattress. Sorry, I don't know about the sewer connection issue yet. We still have so much snow in northern Michigan that I haven't even picked up my unit from the dealer yet!

We had to have a custom queen made to fit under the closets on our GTS 26'. So worth it.

At the Rally last summer we bought a memory foam short queen topper from a vendor. It made a wonderful difference on our 283GTS and was about $150
