Uncomfortable Mattress

We finally get to take the camper out over the Thanksgiving holiday. We had a great trip to our favorite local campground. We quickly found out that the front mattress in my 2015 23IKSS is HORRIBLE. We were ready to come home after the second night just so we can get some restful sleep. I do not remember the thickness (2 or 3 inch) of the memory foam topper we use on top of the mattress, but the mattress is still HORRIBLE. Anyone else having or had the same issue? Anyone ever claimed a "uncomfortable mattress" warranty on the mattresses in your camper? I am going to switch the front and rear mattresses out to see if there is a difference.

In our Flagstaff the original mattress was pretty lackluster. Not outright horrible, but lackluster enough that we needed to add a 4" memory topper to it to get a decent nights sleep.

While we were at the rally in Goshen last August, we ended up picking up a new Eurotopped mattress from one of the vendors and I can say that it's night and day. Almost like sleeping on the bed at home.

X2 on the new Eurotopper.
The original mattresses are just plain junk, Can see why they dont just put a good mattress in and just add it to the price.

The mattress provided by the factory is pretty bad on ours too. We are going to try putting a memory foam pad on and see if it helps.

We did the same at Goshen with our mattress. It was only slept on a dozen times but we knew it was time. We bought a Sealy at the rally and it was the best move we ever did. We paid $500 for it at the rally. When we purchased our 5er, the dealer said they had access to RV mattresses at a good price from a mattress factory. Good luck!

Just remember that this is in the Roo forum so I am assuming that the mattress needs to fold for the trailer to close properly.

Very uncomfortable. We buy air mattresses and put them under the mattress, don't want to lose the heater. Empty them and fold them up with the mattress.

What kind of air mattress do you inflate under the mattress?
