Mattress upgrade

Getting ready to buy a more comfortable mattress for our rockwood 2504s queen bed. I'm leaning towards the 5.5 inch cool max gel foam one from mattressinsider.com. Anyone have tips for mattress buying and or experience with this mattress or company? Thanks

We purchased a memory foam from mattress insider and have been very happy. I'm not sure if it is the same mattress your are considering but ours has done well for over two years. (approx. 125-150 nights)

Just an FYI... The Murphy bed on our 2306 does fine with a 4" memory foam... However, we recently added a pillow top mattress cover and now the bed is hard to lock when putting it up for the day. A little too thick I guess. We use just a sheet and fleece blanket, so not all that much as far as covers.

That's good to know. this replacement is 5.5 inches but I don't believe the factory mattress is less than that?
I will definitely check.

Sorry... I mis-read your post. Ours is on top of the current mattress, not in place of. If you're ditching the current mattress, you should be fine.

As an alternative POV, you may want to check out the sleep number mattress. I have not talked to a single person that regrets spending the money on one. This will probably be a future upgrade for us as well.

Lots of nice mattress upgrades discussed above. However, DW and I really like the heated mattress that came with our Mini Lite. Great option on those cool nights.
