We did not order are class c we bought it off the lot did not know about this option. Thanks for the information and every ones posts.

We replaced our futon type mattress with an 8 inch memory foam mattress we got from Living Social. com One of those discount offer places on the net where you can sign up for deals in your local city. Had a foam topper for a couple of years but it was not enough. Only thing about the new mattress is it a full size queen. Guess I measured wrong and now it is a bit too long for the platform but it sleeps SO much better!

I can understand your pain. We didn't realize the difference in matresses when we ordered our 5er. Asked the dealer about the $125 upgrade to serta, and he said the non option was just a regular camper matress. Needless to say we didn't get the serta and the standard matress sux, like you stated. After our first trip we swapped matresses with one in our homes guest bed. Now I just have to buy another guest matress.
Btw it wasn't any fun getting the original matress out, but it was in our 5ers front neck bedroom.

The Serta mattress is pretty awesome. In our old camper, we only had a bench sofa that made into a bed. We tried everything to make it comfortable and finally ended up buying a short queen eurotop memory foam mattress from Camping world. I think it was over $400, but it made an incredible difference.

If you are close to TN and want a nice mattress, let me know. When we traded, the dealer didn't want anything that wasn't part of the original coach, so we had to take it out. Haven't figured out what to do with it yet. :-)

Heated mattress pad. Warms from the bottom and is awesome!

Another option is a store called The Original Mattress Factory. They will custom make any size you want for any mattress they make. We have them for our beds at home & our Sunseeker. Great mattress. Very highly rated chain store & mattresses by Consumer Reports.

Threw the standard Sunseeker mattress in the dumpster at the last campground we were at. Bought a stock unit from RVDirect. It had the standard mattress. Wanted the upgraded Serta. But, you get the unit as equipped if you buy a stock unit from them.

One of the first things we did w/ our sunseeker is buy a new mattress. My wife insisted we get one b4 we went on our second trip. I think it was like 300 bucks. Kind of pricey, but very comfortable. Do not open a replacement mattress outside of the unit! Ours opened up like a life boat, would be difficult to get it in opened!

Hey Mike, Is that the memory foam mattress? Was wondering which would be better, the memory foam or upgraded Serta?
