Sagging Mattress

We bought the upgraded Serta mattress for our 2015 Sunseeker 2300, and it's like sleeping in a hole! Very disappointed that we paid extra for the "upgrade." Any suggestions for a firmer sleep?

Yup. Same here. Actually thought of putting our home mattress in it although it won't have the radius end for the walkway. I certainly can't fine it in me to go to the price of a sleep comfort mattress. I have also thought about flipping it over since the other side appears more firm which I like.

mwietro, we have had a sleep number in the house for 4 years so wanted the same in the RV. Ended up going with Camping Worlds DreamAir dual chamber queen and are very satisfied with it. I sleep a little firmer than she does, so it suits us well. The upgraded mattress that came in the unit is in our guest room at home. It's not a bad mattress, just not what we wanted. Hope you find something you like.

We've tried air mattresses (work well but are really thick and cumbersome), foam toppers, and on and on. We finally got a sleep number bed and it is wonderful. It takes a bit of trial and error to get your exact number dialed in, but once you do - life is great! I know it cost quite a bit. However, if you add up all of the things you are buying to try to make the mattress livable, you can just save the time and money by going straight to the sleep number. We will never sleep on anything else in our trailer. The DW loves a soft mattress and I like hard. With the sleep number, she can have mush and I can have close to board-like. We're both happy.

You do need to deflate it before you travel. However, you just lower the pressure via the remote and the system does the rest. Keep cats off of it, too. It is an air bladder inside, so it can be punctured.

Really, it is easy and you both will love it.

If you have a IKEA nearby, check theirs out. Not overly $$. We have 1 in the house and 1 in the TT both over 8yrs. old.

I sleep on the nice hard cab-over LOL! But I will say that the rear queen bed in my 2250 is really nice...

Same here with the upgraded Serta. At first we liked it. But on our last trip, it was just too soft/ lacking in support. I don't know if it was always like that and we just didn't have problems, or what.

Ours is new and we love it. Actually like it better than my $leep Number in the house. Hope it stays that way. Figure I'll do my best to prolong the comfort and flip it very once in a while.
