Mattress Replacement

I have a 205 FR Georgetown 378XL. We are not happy with the comfort of the bed. We are considering replacing it with a Sleep Number Mattress. Has anyone made this switch Happy to hear any recommendations. Don't like the price tag of the sleep number but it's nice to be comfortable.

We have replaced the mattress in our last two RVs with a Spa Sensations Gel Memory Foam Mattress from Walmart. We had a real Tempurpedic at home and we like this one so well that when we had to replace the Tempurpedic, we ordered one of these for home. So far, they have lasted 4 years and we spend in excess of 100 nights per year in our RV. It is about 1/10th of the cost of a real Tempurpedic, delivered right to your door.

We have sleep number for our house and RV. DW has back problems and sleep number has been great in helping her out. No problems with them during several years of use.

Try memory foam

We bought a 3" memory foam from Walmart. Cost was about $129 and well worth it. It is now comparable to our expensive mattress that we have in our home. Saved a ton of $$ and now sleeping great.

....I bought a 4" Spa Sensations Memory Foam topper from Walmart. Very pleased with the results and well worth the price.

I too have the sleep number in both the home and rv. With my POS spine I really like it. Because we camp at some national parks without hookups I installed a 600 watt inverter with a remote on/off panel and wired it to one side of the outlet next to the bed. Just remember to lower the pressure to around the 20 setting if you are traveling where there will be altitude changes.

We bought a foam mattress from IKEA and placed it over the short queen when we had our JAyco. It now is on top of the serta that came in our Super V. We have a second one in the house. Most comfortable and not that expensive
