Oh, missed that. Yeah, a 16" deep euro top won't work then.

We bought one through Camping World, though it cost about $450, it was the best sleeping. Another forum suggested this mattress thru Amazon. A good nights sleep is worth the money

We had the same style heated mattress in our old pup. That mattress was a fantastic mattress. With the mattress turned on to level 3, the memory foam topper and the hum of the bunk fan and the A/C, we did some fantastic sleeping. We are so dissappointed in this mattress because it seems to be getting progressively worse the more we sleep on it. For the price that the camper cost, I just think that the mattress should not be this bad.

most hybrid owners find a foam topper makes a world of difference, for the positive.
not sure about your particular mattress, but it's the exception.
maybe the dealer will exchange them for another set, since it may be those particular mattresses.

from reading posts/threads on this subject, only a handful of hybrid owners have resorted to an air mattress. that's based on being a member of 5 different hybrid forums, for over 10 years.

I have the 23IKSS and would agree that the factory mattress isn't the best quality, but as Archicamper mentioned it is a hybrid and the mattress needs to fold to get the bunk to close. I am considering a mattress topper. What is recommended with this size? It measures to a short queen, but is difficult to find that size topper without spending too much. I can get a 3" gel foam queen topper for around a$100 at Sam's Club. Can I get by with a full size or should I get the larger queen?

We use Full size mattress toppers on the beds in our 23IKSS. Length is perfect and the width is pretty close. It has helped a lot. I sleep great but my wife doesn't sleep that well. I sleep by the window and she sleeps on the fold. I've offered to swap with her but she prefers that spot.
I did swap the front and back mattresses and one seemed to be flatter on the front bunk where we sleep.

What size topper did you go with 2,3 or 4 inch?

We got the toppers at a store called Aldi. It is a grocery store but they have other seasonal items that they sell throughout the year. When it was back to school season, they had pillows, toppers, and lots of storage gizmos. We ended up getting a bunch of things for the new HTT that have worked very well. The toppers that we purchased are 3" and we got them in size full. The length is perfect and they are only maybe 2"short on the sides which is fine. They are flat (not fitted) but have wide sturdy straps on the corners that secure them to the mattress. I think they are part gel foam and part fiberfill. Whatever it is, the beds are very comfortable now.

We have the 2" topper and it's very comfortable, now the dinette cushions and sofa aren't comfortable at all. We're looking at re foaming them, at least the dinette bottoms.
