We got our 2" memory foam at Wally World. On top of the regular mattress, you'll be just fine. You don't need to spend big $$$.

Yup not just Hybrids. Friends FR Sierra TT w/ bunk house in the back has the same coil spring mattress and they are not very comfortable.
Foam mattress cover and you'll be fine.

My wife and I use a 3 inch gel topper for our bed and the kids bed has a 2 inch memory foam topper.

Redstick we got both of ours at Sams Club and from I remember they weren't expensive.

my wife is disabled after having neck surgery so she cant stand the mattresses in the trailer. We bought the memory foam topper and it wasn't enough and was very warm. Added a feather topper and the 2 made it perfect, you just have to get sheets for a pillw top mattress.

We use 3" memory foam, too. We were lucky to find them at a local dept store that was going out of business - 60% off. We store them folded on the dinette for travelling.

We got our 2" topper on sale at Target which was at the time a tad cheaper than the ones we saw at Walmart. Less than $100 after tax and was the best addition we ever made to our ROO! Even in the cold weather, the mattress heat still comes through the topper so staying temperature comfy has not been an issue.

Best place to get a memory foam topper is Costco.

We used one for years in our Coleman pop-up and now have one in the Flagstaff TT. They usually go on sale a couple of times a year and are a great deal. Don't get a standard foam topper they don't last.

I don't think human technology has advanced to the point that we can make a 2-4 inch mattress that is comfortable for an adult. (I have found that kids can sleep on a burlap sack full of bricks and be ok).

Do the foam topper. You wont regret it.

And Kohl's if they are in your area. They often have killer sales (e.g., 50% off) that we wait for and then combine with one of the 30% off coupons they mail out to cardholders. Got two memory foams several years ago for the camper and paid $70 for each (from $200 retail).
