RV Mattress

We just purchased a 2016 Sandpiper and LOVE everything about it except the Serta Mattress. It's very hard and neither my husband or I slept well for 6 days while we camped at the lake. We are about to replace! If you have an option to upgrade to a better quality mattress, do it. It will save you $$$ in the long run and you will get a good nights sleep. Happy Camping.

A 3 or 4 inch memory foam mattress topper can really help.

I took the sorta my flagstaff came with and replaced it with the air mattress (coleman queen camper) I used in my winnebago topped with 2 inch memory foam and mattress cover. it never looses air and is very comfortable. unlike the sorta witch was pure misery.

Agreed. We tried a mattress topper and it still wasn't good enough. We bought a residential Sleep Number bed and couldn't be happier.

I'm following the same steps. We currently have the topper but it's not good enough.
Having a Sleep Number at home, this is now our goal to get one in the 5er. We love the Sleep Number and I don't wake up with back aches anymore. Sorry to make it sound like a commercial but it works for us.

Just spent almost 3 months in the RV, we added a 3" Serta foam topper, really made the original plywood hard matress very comfortable.

Our Columbus came with a Serta Trump Series mattress which we love. Loved it so much in fact we bought the nearest thing we could find to it for our home mattress.

This is NOT an endorsement of Donald Trump (as I don't discuss politics here or elsewhere). :-)

What we found at home was from Sleep Experts and it was a Kingsdown pillow-top mattress. Here's the Kingsdown site: Kingsdown Luxury Mattresses - Smart technology, unprecedented quality, and handcrafted artistry for smarter sleep.

We love both our home and RV mattresses equally!
