Mattress Cover

Can anyone recommend a good mattress cover? My wife says that our mattress in the Roo isn't comfortable because she is sleeping on the crack.

Nearly every hybrid owner puts a foam topper on the mattresses.

I have a 2" foam topper from Kohls and then a reg. matteress pad before making the bed. It has been very comfortable. Can't feel the crack at all.

Try placing some square foam 2x2 pads under the bed (recommended somewhere on here recently) and then the foam topper.

You should create an even level for the bed and then the topper helps with the crappy mattress.

I didn't like sleeping on the crack so we now "pivot" our mattress so our heads are facing the middle window of the bunk end and our feet are facing the living area. I don't have to crawl over the DW when I have to get up at night. The "crack" is a thing of the past.
