Memory Foam

After sleeping way too many nights on the most uncomfortable mattress, I broke down and bought the 8" memory foam from Overstock.com. They offer the short queen size made for campers. Wow, I should have listened to the wife and ordered right away.

How much did that set you back, if I may ask?

We added a 3" memory foam topper. That made a night and day difference too. No more back pain!

I guess the point is that FR (and the others) go cheap, instead of functional.

The FR matrices seems to be designed lightweight for towing. Though the memory foam is worth it weight in gold.

There is a special right now for $309 for the 8 inch. You can buy less thick mattresses for less money. I don't think you could go wrong even with the 2 inch memory foam. Well worth the money!

We put a 2" memory foam on our bed and one of the bunks, it helps, but I would like to upgrade sometime to a better mattress.

I got the 3" memory foam pad from Wally World. We've not slept on it yet but it has to be more comfy than the mattress!

Mattress warranty

We have a Coachmen Catalina with a short queen sized mattress. We have had slept on it 7 or 8 nights when we had to flip and rotate it. It is terrible. Anyway, I just had my camper to the Dealer for some issues with the infamous ZX-50 etc. The Dealer asked me to remove the covers on the mattress so he could put a straight edge over it and take some pictures. I did so and it turns out the middle was already 2 1/2 inches lower than the outer edges. The Dealer said there had been some problems and he would try and get us a new mattress under warranty... I hope he succeeds! I'll still get a memory foam topper though.
