Crappy mattress

Has anyone replaced crappy mattress that came with camper? Our old trailer we had a innerspring mattress made by local manufacture but they have shut down and we were stupid and let that mattress go with camper. Don't want to take out a loan for new mattress and hesitant to buy one off line without trying them. What do you have and do you like? How long have you had it?

Previous to my Hyperlite XLR 29HFS, I owned a GW 21RR; and yes, these have terribly cheap and uncomfortable mattresses. That's OK, because good RV mattress cost a bundle and I would rather find a good one at a lower price.

I don't remember what I upgraded to in the GW, but the XLR I got this one, a Sleep Revolution 10" foam from Walmart...

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Sleep-Revo...ingMethod=p13n

I wasn't sure of how foam would do, but its pretty good. It is firmer than I suspected, but I get a good nights sleep and wake without aches or pains. This mattress sleeps better than my Sterns and Foster at home. It is a little bit warmer sleeping on foam (for me).

It came compressed in a box; sealed in an air tight plastic bag but getting it in position, cutting the straps and taking out of the bag it came up to the full 10". Some complain about smell. I left it unmade; and the windows open for a day and smell was gone, plus it wasn't that bad to begin with. I would recommend this particular mattress.

I need to get a standard queen for the bed in the toy bay next. I'll be getting this same one.

We have had a Tempurpedic at home, so I wanted something comparable in our TT. I didn't want to spend $3,000 for one in the TT, so I went searching and found the Spa Sensations Gel Memory Foam (cooler) at Walmart for $200. Ordered it on Saturday, it was delivered on Monday. We LOVED it!

When our Tempurpedic at home needed to be replaced, it was replaced with a California King size of the Walmart brand.

We purchased a fifth wheel in 2011 and before we took delivery or it, I ordered a new mattress from Walmart, which was awaiting it's arrival. We camp host and spend 100+ nights in our fifth wheel and it still sleeps wonderfully. Our mattress in our S&B is still in great shape after 5 years, so that is my recommendation.

We ordered a queen size even though our TT had a short queen. It fitted itself in just fine but it was a little harder to get to the storage underneath, but it could be done.

Latex Mattress

Hi,

I haven't got my new MH yet, but I will get a latex mattress to replace the standard mattress. I have a latex mattress at home and can't imagine sleeping on anything else.

There is a manufacturer in Covina, CA that sells direct to the public, and will ship anywhere. If you are inclined to look at latex, check them out. This is where I bought my home Cal King and the price, quality and service were fantastic. They have and do build mattresses for any RV.

Flexus Comfort Mattress Company - Quality Latex Mattresses

I am not a shill or employee! Just a very satisfied customer and want to pass on another option. If you are local to So Cal, they have a small showroom.

Scott

We put on a memory foam mattress topper. Much cheaper than a new mattress and makes a huge difference. We got a 3.5 inch thick short queen and trimmed it to fit.
