Bed mattress and TV

I am wondering if anyone has replaced the mattress in the bed room and if so does anyone have any recommendations on a good mattress. Also what size TV have you all went with in the bedroom.

We put a 3" foam topper on ours. Works wonders.

We have a Coleman air mattress over ours and it's adequate.

We bought a 4"memory foam topper and it worked well. TV in our bedroom is a 39". Seems to be plenty big since it's so close. We also squeezed a 39 in the living room and put a 36 in the garage.

Few years back bought a Richardson mattress (made by serta). Just like the one at home, and for a extra $50 they custom made it to a short queen size for our 5th wheel. When we moved to a new trailer we put it in the new unit. Money well spent.

Used a full size 6" queen foam mattress from IKEA. We love it. Going on 7 years with it on top of the stock innerspring mattress. Many grades to choose from. This one cost about 300. Initially, in a previous TT, it was on top of the stock short queen mattress, which was slid down the 6" so the foot end of the mattresses mated up. I hateed to have my feet hanging over the end. The overhang of the top mattress at the head of the bed was unnoticeable, since it was 6" thick. Wouldn't waste my time or money buying a short queen or having one shortened. 6" is not a big deal, unless...!

We have a Sleep Number bed at home. After a two week trip with the new fifth wheel I had major pain issues with the installed mattress so we purchased a Sleep Number bed for the rv. Surprisingly, the best price we could find for the short queen was at Camping World.

Tossed out the old RV (it was new) mattress and went out and purchsed a new Original Mattress Factory mattress just like the one we have at home. Now we sleep as well if not better in the RV as we do at home!

We have no TV... do streaming on our computers... works well.
