Mattresses in Rockwood Ultralites

We have ordered a 2010 Rockwood Ultralite 2604ss and I was just wondering how the quality of the mattresses are that they put in them. Years ago we had a travel trailer and the mattress was not very comfortable and we replaced it. Im hoping that they are putting better ones in trailers now.
I read where someone posted that they saw Serta mattresses in Rockwoods but I wonder if that is only in the Signature Ultralites.

Thanks

We have an 8281SS ultralite 5ver with heated mattress. Compared to my previous 1987 pop-up bunk ends the Rockwood mattress is awesome, but my wife and I still found it to be somewhat uncomfortable. We got tired of waking up with aches in our backs after our 3rd trip out. Rather then spend a lot upgrading the matress, we opted for a nice quality memory foam mattress topper (3 inches thick). Wow! This made all the difference and worth every penny in overall comfort. Plus, it'll only set you back $100-$200. Hope this helps.

We have a piece of memory foam that we used in our pop-up. We will probably use that and see if it works before spending money on a new mattress. We are hoping that the mattress will be comfortable because we don't want to carry the extra weight of the memory foam. Amazing how heavy those things are!

Thanks alot.

E.S.P.,

Can you still use the heat on the mattress if you put memory foam over it?

we also had to put the foam mattress pad on ours and we are able to use the heat. I dont know if it limits the amount you actually feel but we have no complaints about it..We only have to use ours in the very early spring and actually turned it on last weekend. The mattress is a bit uncomfortable without any padding...

We just purchased 3" memory foam, and WOW! what a big difference! We love it, and you can get them on e bay! We paid 75.00, shipped! Came in 2 days, too! Very happy with it, and I highly recommend it. Randy

Since we have an '04 model Flagstaff (twin of the Rockwood) I am not sure what improvements may have been made in the mattress'
but we have the "premium" on in ours. We got the 3" memory foam from one of the local department stores and it made a world of difference. We have a heated mattress but have not used that feature but I would imagine that you would feel somewhat less heat through the foam.

I vote for the memory foam also and the heater works great you just dont feel it right away but the longer you lay there the warmer it get .we use ours for the first time last weekend really is nice didnt have to turn on the furnace at all

Thank alot everyone for the comments. Looks like we will be using memory foam. Glad to know we can still use the heated mattresses. Can't wait for our trailer to come in. It's been 4 weeks today since we ordered it. Hopefully only a few more weeks to go.

Sorry for the delayed response, but I agree with everyone's comments regarding the heat. Though we have not used the heat option yet ourselves, I would think that you could still use it. No warnings of any kind stated on the memory foam. Probably just a little less heat felt when used, but the foam will also keep you a bit warmer just by itself.
