Our 2012 Wildcat Sterling edition came with a Trump Suites matteress. I was prepared to toss what ever came with our rig but to my suprise it was a very comfortable mattress. Best mattress I've had in an RV.

I fully expected it to break down quickly with the plan to swap it out with an extra select comfort queen we have in our guest room at home. It's now 3 1/2 years since we purchased our 5er new and the bed is still going strong without the need to modify with a topper.

I just wished other issues were avoided as well as the mattress was.

Replacement Mattress

We bought a Dreamfoam Bedding Ultimate Dreams Short Crazy Quilt Pillow Top Mattress, Queen from Amazon for like $270. Love it when camping, it's better than our $2000 home mattress!

Sleepmaster Mattress in Syracuse. They make mattresses to your specifications. Great to sleep on. Changed from a Queen to a small King. World of difference from original.

Have a full-queen "premium" Serta mattress (option in our Rockwood 5er), but I still didn't find it comfortable (I'm used to a firm memory-foam topped mattress at home), so we put the foam topper from our old pop-up on-top, and I'm much happier.

Currently have a 22" combo LCD/DVD in the bedroom, which we moved from our old pop-up, but I'm looking into getting a 32" (but not sure whether I'll get a DVD combo, or just something that'll play videos from USB HD)

We replaced our mattress with a Dream Air from CW. It is made for CW by Sleep Number. Same remote but doesn't say Sleep Number on it and it was cheaper. Wish we had a bed in the house that sleeps as good.

Hey John, went with a Walmart 10" foam for $260 and could not be happier with it. I want to another but in a full length queen for the garage. I don't have a TV in bedroom, but to me a 26" or a little smaller would be about right. My TV is a 32"; in living room. I recently moved it down to eye level and added a cabinet and shelf.

BTW, you should add a signature line so everyone can see what you have.

Not too many LCD/DVD combos available any more. Have a 24" RCA, great picture and reception but the audio sucks, you can barely hear it

Thank you all for the input. WW I thought I did have a signature line. Anyways I bought me a Foam mattress off Amazon and for the TV I got me a 24" Toshiba in the same model type that I have in living room which is a 32" so I can use my same dish network remote to control both. WW the little short cubby space next to the radio in the 29hfs I was trying to figure out for the longest what to use it for. My dish 211 receiver fits perfectly in that spot.
