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...
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.
