TT Mattress Replacements

Hi, We just bought our first TT this week, a used 2013 Grey Wolf 28BH. We want to replace the existing mattresses, where is a good place to buy from? Looking in the middle of the road price range not 700 and up but not cheap cheap either. Thanks!

Welcome to the forum!

If the mattresses are standard size, shop where ever you would for residential mattresses.

One word --- EBAY. I just replaced our 3" piece of nothing with a 12" memory foam mattress for about $400 with free shipping. Plus it got here in just a couple of days. Incredible difference. I love it and have slept like a baby ever since. Remember to measure first. If it's a queen, then it's probably a "short queen" meaning it's 5" shorter than a standard queen. Several places on Ebay sell the short queens. Whether you get it from Ebay or from a overpriced mattress only store, I highly recommend the memory foam mattresses. I love mine and will probably replace my mattress at home with one as well. Good luck.

Well, many RV mattresses are not normal sizes. Ours is 72" by 74" for example; supposedly a king but is is really shorter. We went to The Original Mattress Factory. Don't know if they exist in your area. But they will make a custom sized mattress, good quality, at a reasonable price.

I don't have a Original Mattress Factory around here but I didn't even think of ebay. I'll check them out, I'm figuring since there's no box springs the thicker the better?

We didn't replace our mattress yet, but we did put a 3" memory foam pad on top of the horrible "mattress" in our 26BH Grey Wolf. Just the 3" pad made a huge difference!

we put the mattress topper from costco I think it's a nova foam. We left the mattress that came with the trailer down and just added the topper. The wife and I slept the first trip with out the nova foam when we got home we knew we needed a new plan. It has been great we like sleeping in the trailer more then our home now. For the price you can't afford not to try it. I think costco has them all year. We will be added one to our home very soon.

Another Costco (oh gee was it Sam's Club??) Memory Foam Mattress topper. It's a bit longer than our bed so I folded the extra under at the pillow end of the bed which actually works well. This is honestly very very comfortable. Downside? In freezing weather the memory foam gets hard - a bit of body heat solves the problem but it is weird jumping on the bed and having it hard instead of squishy!
