New camper mattress

Just bought a 2014 28dbud. The mattress it came with is not comfortable. Anyone have any ideas or have already purchased a good one?

Memory foam topper mattress (can be purchased in different thickness). Purchased ours at Walmart and made a large improvement.

We bought a 4 inch queen-sized topper from Walmart "canopy branded" for our last rv and another for the current 2011 model. About $100 but best $100 spent on rv. Check measurements. A little extra won't hurt. Let it "inflate" with windows open for a couple days. They make them in different sizes. We also puchased a sealy hide-abed mattress for last unit from a furniture store that was very good and exact size.

We did buy a topper but doesn't seem to make a difference. Thinking we just need a new mattress.

We just put on our perfect harmony mattress topper today. It is a memory foam topper. Haven't slept on it yet but it should certainly improve sleep quality.

I brought a Mattress-in-a-box from Wal-Mart which I find very comfortable. My local MW had two types to select from. It was around $200 but WM said it was returnable if it wasn't comfortable. Before buying the mattress I tried an 4 in topper but still could feel the plywood.

Getting ready to order this (5.5" Elation Cool-MAXģ Gel Foam RV Mattress II) for about $350 from Mattressinsider.com. Bought my last mattress from them and was comfortable for the money. Mattress toppers don't seem to work on really cheap mattresses, for me anyway. Last one I bought from them was comfortable, but of course, it was a different size than my new camper.

Gotta have a decent bed.

If you have tryed a good mem-foam mattress topper 4" or 6" already without good enough results there may be no choice but replace mattress. Too bad as the topper can also allow for the use of residential sheets with better fit.
I would have never slept in our's without it as the coils could be felt.

We only use Sleep Number at home and in our 26' Sunseeker. Camping World has the best price for short queen. Just have to know rounded or square bottom edges.
Easy to install. Just need to find a spot to plug in the pump and store the pump. I have a single drawer on the passenger side of the vehicle. I pulled out the drawer and found tons of space under and behind that drawer for the pump (right in front of the taillight). I drilled a 1" hole behind the mattress into that location to feed hoses and power to the bed.

Love sleep number because both can set whatever hardness/softness they want. I you get sick - no more bed sores. You just change the pressure to select different contact pressure points. Should run about $800 for short queen.
