4 inch Memory Foam Mattress Topper?

Well I just broke down and finally ordered hubby from a 4 inch memory foam topper. I did tell him that for the month of November that we are camping that he needs to put it UNDER his heated mattress. I'll still be sleeping on the Air Mattress for a while till I can order one for my side.

Not sure how they are going to work out. I know it may be a royal pain to have to roll them up for when we are towing.

Just wondering if anyone else here has bought/used Memory foam on their beds? I know that seeing as how we are in a Hybrid that it may be a royal pain to have to roll up/fold up or what ever when we break down to tow. Guess I'll have to learn exactly where to store them.

I can tell you that they are a bit on the heavy side- and mine is a 3". Fortunately, we leave ours on our bed all the time, and we don't (or haven't yet) used the heated mattress option. I had to dis-assemble our bed to work on the lower frame/woodwork, and they were a handful to move. Good luck, with them on a hybrid- I know that they would NOT have worked on our previous Coleman pop up, without removing them before packing it up to leave. Randy

I used a 2" one on both beds in my old Roo. The 2" seemed to fold up just fine with the mattress, so we never removed it. I don't know about a 4" though. And yes, even the 2" was heavy...was not fun to muscle around. Fortunately with a hybrid you can work on it from outside too!

We have a 4" memory foam topper on ours - makes a huge difference over the standard mattress by itself. We definitely sleep better with it.
We also don't have to remove ours - it would be a pain if we had to because they are heavy.

Getting a memory foam topper is the best investment. I had a hard time sleeping on our mattress when we first got our trailer but since the memory topper was added it makes a world of difference. I think ours is 2" though and we just leave it as ours isn't a hybrid or pop up.

We have a 4" memory foam and love it. I also have an electric blanket on top. Until I get a gas cylinder to open the storage under the bed, it's too heavy to lift with the foam.

I think mine is a 4" and I have the heated mattress. It taked a little longer to heat up with the topper on but works fine. The pass through storage is under the bed and without the heated mattress in the winter my head and shoulder get pretty cold. With the heated mattress and electric blanket it is toasty!

We use a 3 inch memory foam and depending on the nighttime temperature determines how we use it. If it is going to be a cold night and we need to use the electric heater in the mattress, the mattress goes on top of the foam. Most other nights it lies on top of the mattress. We fold and roll it up and place it on the table for travel mode.

We use a 2 1/2" one that we got at Walmart. We put a heated mattress pad over the top of it. Works great!
