Main bed is comfy, others are not. What do you use?

The queen bed is fine, but the others are not.

I have a 2015 262BH, but I suspect this issue is not unique to my camper. The bunks came with a very thin "mattress", and the dining table cushions are not much better when it is converted to a bed.

What do you use to make them more comfortable?

I'm thinking of going with some sort of foam for the dining table, which we can store under the main bed. I have not had good luck with inflatable mattresses. If you have found some good ones, please let me know. I figure foam will be best for the bunks, since we can just leave it there. I'm looking for brand names and product numbers if possible.

I bought custom cut foam from www.foambymail.com. It is good quality and was far cheaper than anywhere else that I found. Plus, their customer service is top notch.

I went with their 4" lux foam. But you can contact them and describe the usage and they'll make a recommendation. I kept the existing "mattresses" and use them like toppers to the foam for extra goodness.

Thanks for the tip! I will check them out.

It would be nice if the manufacturer would put in some better mattresses in those areas, especially in the bunk areas. Are the bunk areas about like a single bed or a child's bunk bed that you might use at home?

I think they are larger than a twin. They are a nice size, really. I need to go measure them so I can order some foam.
But the "mattresses" are terribly thin. It was an inexpensive camper but I would have been happy to pay a little more for something that was useful.

An egg crate or foam mattress topper helps immensely.

MDW just purchased a memory form 3" pad. We put on top of mattress. Wow. Feels great. Sheets still work and have heater pad for a good night sleep.

We found a 4" pieces of foam makes a world of difference. We use it under the factory thin mattress. Our TH has 4 queen size beds plus the dinette. Same here only the main bed has a real mattress the others are very thin.

We use a 'feather-bed' on the dinette to give it some extra comfort. Found that was easier to store than the memory foam toppers, since we use it only on occasion.

Foam pads under the current bunk pads and a thick sleeping bag on top. Makes for a good bed for kids or adults.
