I agree with everyone on the stock matress. It had to go after my first trip out.
I ordered this queen short pillow top matress from Sams club. It was shipped rolled up like a dehydrated sponge almost. You lay it in the bed frame and the cut the rope and it expands in place. They recommend you don't sleep on it for 24 hours so that all the springs expand properly. I personally recommend it and it's well worth the price.

I slept on it last weekend for a night but we will try again this weekend. The kids wanted to stay in in last weekend and I didn't have any sheets etc on the bed and a small pillow. I will give it a fair shake this weekend.

The factory mattresses in most RVs are junk. We bought a 10 inch memory foam topped mattress from Amazon a few years ago for our Wildwood 21RBS, and when we traded in that piece of junk for our Cherokee 254QS, the first thing I did was swap the mattresses. The one in the Cherokee was very thin and springy; it felt like tissue paper over cardboard....

Congrats on your new trailer! I have the same one and camped in it for the very first time this weekend. We loved it. As for the queen mattress, it's not the best but it sure beats the air mattress in my tent. We plan to add a topper soon but it's not at the top of my list. I have 2 kids and they haven't complained about their bunks yet. I actually laid with my son in the bottom bunk until he fell asleep and it wasn't bad. It really depends on what level of comfort you are looking for. Click image for larger version

Cool setup! We slept in it again Sat night and it's not too bad. The wife has not tried it out yet. She wants to do a topper. I would like to get one of the 10" memory foam mattresses but I have been spending quite a bit outfitting it since it came home so maybe I will wait until out first rel outing and the wife can give the bed a test rid. I do have a bad back but the support feels fairly good when I cat up I'm really not too sore at all.

I have a 2014 26dbh and agree with the mattress.

On a separate note, has anyone noticed unusual tire wear? Had to replace my tires last year due to rubbing on the coach.

Yes mine rubbed the inside fender well very badly when leaning off center on steep inclines. Since my axle swap no more rubbing.

Axle swap? Did you get new or just flip them to make it "taller"?
