I can't see me actually sleeping with the mattress on. I think I'll use mine on humid nights to get the dampness out of the bedding. If DW thinks I'm going to bed with the heat on, I guess I'll be spending a lot of nights on the sofa air bed...

I read where someone posted that they saw Serta mattresses in Rockwoods but I wonder if that is only in the Signature Ultralites.

Thanks
To answer your question at this time with out calling a dealer and from what I have read on the Forest River (Rockwood) web site the Serta mattress will be standard on units that come with a Queen or King bed, as far as other Forest River models, I am not sure.

We have used the heat each time we have camped in cooler weather. It's nice to turn the heat on about an hour before bedtime. We usually only run the dial about 2 - 3. We put a nice quilted mattress cover on there with a cheap foam pad from Target, it sleeps great and doesn't interfere with the heat.

The control dial light, however, is bright enough to read by. Sometimes I stuff the control between the mattress and the nightstand. Sometimes I throw a hand towel over it. But i always have to do something about that overly bright light!!

We have used the memory foam topper on ours for 2 years and we use the heater often in that time frame as prefer not to have the unit too "hot" but like a cosy bed. Our topper is only 2 inches but the heater works great. Just remember if your unit is COLD the memory foam is hard like a board so throw back the covers and turn up the heat before you want to hit the bed the first night heading south! After it is warmed up it gets comfy for sure. I thought when the heater was there when we bought the unit that we would never use it but I LOVE THE HEATER and mymemory foam makes the mattress feel a lot better. Go for it, in Canada, Canadian Tire used to have the toppers on sale and those ones have a cover on them and for the cold spring and fall nites get your fleece sheets too!

Ditto here, foam topper tops up the comfort level. And we use the heated bed, almost every night, it warms us up plenty through the foam.

The standard rockwood mattress in most cases is fine just add a nice matress pad to it. If you do long term camping then they offer a plush serta mattress as an option.

I have spent 4 nights in the rockwood since picking it up last month. The first 2 nights I did not use the bed heat, the control was missing. Without the bed heat I could feel the cold from the pass through storage. The last 2 nights with the bed heat on I did not feel the cold from the pass through. I don't really care for electric blankets but I do like the heated bed. I also sleep very well without any mattress pad.

We have the Serta in our 2010 8317SS

We just bought ours and it had the upgrade to the serta instead of the heated mattress. We are picky about our sleep and so far have found the serta to be very comfortable. We have rented many campers in our time and always had to bring foam toppers. We have since decided to cut the toppers up for the rear bunks which appear to be nothing more than thin foam. We like the Serta.
