Latex Mattress

I'm leaning towards a latex mattress. I spend 3 months in winter in camper and the stock mattress just isn't comfortable. Anyone have one in RV or at home? Can anyone suggest a real comfortable mattress? I was looking at this one-

A store near us has just started advertising these. Haven't checked them out.

I wonder, they claim they're hypo allergenic, but some people are allergic to latex.


If age is a state of mind, and I've lost my mind, I'm AGELESS, right?
Give me 40 acres and I'll turn this rig around:

I bought a 4 inch memory foam mattress topper for our new camper and it is extremely comfortable.

We replaced our factory mattress with a Brentwood memory foam mattress off of Amazon and we really like it. We have the 11" model with the cool gel top layer, it is not hot at all. - Brentwood 11" Gel Infused HD Memory Foam Mattress - 100% Made in USA - CertiPur Foam - 25-Year Warranty, Triple Layer, Natural Bamboo Cover, Short Queen Size 60 x 75 x 11 -

We use this exact mattress in our house and in the camper. Our kids also have smaller sizes in this brand as well. I used to wake up with sore shoulders because I am a side sleeper, but no longer with this mattress! The length is a few inches too long to fit into the camper so we used an electric carving knife to slice right through it. I completely love this bed and sleep as well in the camper as we do at home. - Sleep Innovations 12-Inch SureTemp Memory Foam Mattress 20-Year Warranty, Queen -

i have the murphy bed option in my Rockwood and don't think a 12" thick would work. Not sure It would fold up and latch properly? Anyone try it in one???

When I was in the furniture business, some customers told me they were hot. I also found the texture to be "different". It has been a while, so they may be more comfortable and some customers liked it a lot.

I personally like the memory foam. YMMV
Don't hate me because I'm beautiful.... there are far too many other reasons!

I would not want a latex mattress. Latex allergies tend to develop with exposure. The move of late has been to get latex out of everything. I wouldn't want to sleep on it but that is just my 2.
