Is Sleep Number mattresses worth the money?

I'm still researching the Camping World Sleep Number bed for my Georgetown.

What I have found is many unhappy customers that have problems of leaks and sagging as well as cheap zipper breaking, controllers failure and even pumps stop working. When they contact Sleep Number they get BS and run-a-round on how much the replacement part will cost.

I just wanted to hear from anyone that has the sleep number bed for awhile and if it really worth the money?

Here is the link to the customers complaints and they sure are alot of them. 737 and they all are from 2012. Hummm

My GF has an sleep # bed at her house. They are finicky and leak down every few days. They also have a hard support beam in the middle as it's a king mattress. No comfort sleeping in the middle as the beam is like a brick. Soooo, sleep on your own side of the bed. LOL! Sleep number bed overrated/overprice. You better read up on having mold problems as their mattress does not breath/ventilate like a regular mattress does.

In my RV - main bed, I use a 4" memory foam matress topper. Wallyworld has them for 150 bucks or so.

I use an Aerobed for my fold-out couch. Aorebed is actually pretty comfy 100-200 bucks for one of these and it has the wired remote for adjusting air like a sleep # bed.

We have had a sleep number bed in our house for about 7 years and have had no problems. I have chronic pain issues so I change the firmness depending on how I feel. We have had no issues and have been very happy with is and just bought one for the rv. If you do get one, make sure you lower the pressure before traveling, especially if you are changing altitude.

We had one for years and it did get mold in it. We called and they sent us a new bed. The customer service is excellent. I think I would buy it from a SN store if I got another one. We still have it as a guest room mattress. We have a Tempura-Pedicure Allure for our house and love it. When we bought the MH this spring we bought a Tempur-Pediic Cloud Supreme and it is very comfortable.
The TP'S are expensive but with the neck and back surgery's I have had I couldn't sleep in anything else.
I was afraid they would sleep hot but it has never been a issue and have been told by TP that winter storage will not be a issue as long as the bed is flat it will be fine in freezing temperatures. I will but extra Damprid by the bed to protect from mold.
I sleep much better on the TP then any other bed I have tried.

Had a sleep number for several years. Loved it at first, but it seemed to go bad? Both my husband and I started to not be happy with it, but didn't say anything to each other for about a year. My parents had one as well and had bought a cheaper foam mattress for their second home and found they liked it much better. Now we have a foam bed at home and just put a foam bed in our trailer.

We have a sleep number bed. My wife and I both don't like it. I would not recommend getting one.

Great information

The replies here are very interesting to say the least.
I just went down to the local mall store and asked them many questions.
They have many different versions and the one I'm considering is a P5.

They have all the same sir chambers, pumps and controls. The big difference is the exterior and now may layers of foam pads you add tot he top.

I did notice the P5 has a much better quilting and softer material than the basic model. I still believe it is a very costly ionvestment.

The main warranty is basically 100% for the first 2 years. After that time it will cost you to get anything fixed or replaced. Still thinking about it but will conti nue to monitor this question here if it is worth it.

Let's keep this going to help others.

This is the one I'm considering from Camping World
It is a short Queen with radius corners

I have had a sleep number bed at my house for about two years now. Me and the wife have loved it. My wife could sleep on a rock so it wasn't so much for her. It's nice to have the adjustment. I have change it a few times depending on how I feel.
