Bedding for 2014 Roo 233s

Just purchased a 2014 Roo (233s) - We are on our first camping trip and holy cow these mattresses are uncomfortable.

Any recommendations to improve the comfort level without compromising the space to fold back into the unit?

What is everyone else using for bedding?

Love the unit - just need to make some minor adjustment to bedding (and stabelizing).

Memory foam mattress toppers. They come in various thicknesses. Depending on the thickness you choose you might have to roll them up stow them someplace like under the dinette or on the floor. For the stabilizing issue, are you using wheel chocks?

We use a 3" foam topper and it still folds up fine but we dont snap ours to the door.

We have a 2" memory foam topper. Had to cut it to fit. We don't attach the mattress to the door, either.

I noticed the same when we were looking at the Roo. The beds feel like springs hitting your back. In our PUP we used memory foam which I plan on using in the Roo.

a lot of RV owners, not just hybrid owners, get a foam topper for their mattresses.
but it's pretty standard for hybrid owners. very few sleep on just the mattress.

We haven't purchased the foam toppers yet, but it is certainly on the punch list of items. Silly question, but where does one go to get the foam topper/memory foam at a good value? No need to spend a ton of money since we don't live on them every day of the week, although at times, we'd like too! .

I got a standard size Serta queen in my trailer it is freaking hard so I got a 2" pad at Shopko, is much better now.

So there really are a lot of people who are not real happy with their beds.

you have to understand that hybrids and popups, don't have regular mattresses like yours.
they are basically a 3"-4" foam or coil mattress, nothing like a Serta or typical mattress.

I do understand the difference, all I am saying is the matts are junk regardless of what type trailer we have.

If my matt was 2-4 inch's thick but comfortable I'd be clam happy.

But I had to spend more money just like nearly everyone in order to be able to sleep comfortably.
