standard features

I was just eyeballing the new 2007 Cherokee brochure. I noticed there is no longer any mention of a heated mattress anymore only pillowtop. I have used the heated mattress several nights and thought it was a good feature. The brochure also states black tank flush is now new feature.

Interesting as I love my heated mattress in the winter and hope they dont drop it. The tank flush would be nice from the factory.

I hear you loud and clear on the hose/let it flow budfans.

On the heated/pillow top debate. The wife and I have the heated and added a nice thick sleeping bag over the mattress and we still have the end result of a heated pillow top.

I sleep better in the trailer than I do in my own bed.

I have been known on those back ache nights to just go sleep trailer in the side yard

Its nice to have the baby in the side yard plugged up and ready to go at any time for a side yard camping adventure.

Yes, the heated mattress is nice. We have a 4" Memory Foam topper on ours and it's like sleeping on a cloud(at least I guess that's what sleeping on a cloud feels like).

Mike, I know what you mean. I sleep better in the TT than in the house.

If we ever get another TT, I'll have to retain my heated mattress.

I've got my sleep number knock-off mattress in mine with a 2" memory foam topper. I like it better than my real pillow-top sleep number with 2" memory foam topper in the house. I guess it's just something about being in your rig? Or maybe since it was WAY less expensive than the "real" deal. Don't know if I could do the heated matterss thing. I like my pillow and bed on the cool side.

We had an 05 with the heated mattress. we were in MT. when the furnace went out for a night. I forgot all about the heated mattress. now we have an 07(purchased in jul. of 06) and it too has the heated mattress. haven`t used it yet eithe. rthese mattresses are the most uncomfortable things i`ve ever lied on! and they`re just low enough that if you want to stretch your arm out, the nightstand digs into it. I am thinking about adding the topper or some type of foam to firm it up and raise it up.

I don`t know why all TT`s don`t come with flushers standard?
