Custom mattress for exact replacement
Posting on a few of the old mattress topics because I think it's worth sharing as well as starting a thread here in the tips and tricks area.
We have suffered with our original mattress in our 15 Salem Hemisphere 5er for longer than we should have. We hated the idea of spending too much on a mattress that we only sleep on 30-40 nights year and Lord knows that the Camping World prices are scary for good bedding. Even with the $200 topper ours is still terrible for more than a night or two. We decided today to hit up the local mattress stores to see what we could muster. Most of which only had the standard residential sizes available but when we stopped at Imex furniture (New Hartford, NY 315-738-7976) they are an Eclipse Mattress dealer - made in America, NJ plant serves our area. The sales manager, Paul knew that they had nothing but standard sizes and would have nothing that would perfectly replace our Olympic Queen (66x80) so he called the factory directly to see if they could custom make us a mattress. We picked the pocketed innerspring, plush, that we liked from the floor displays and they are custom making us a one of a kind. I was almost afraid to ask the price but it is the same price as the next standard size up - in our case a king.
We have went down the road of buying a mail order, rolled up foam mattress and have no desire to go down that path again. I am very heat sensitive and since we camp in warmer weather, I feel like I am melting and am unable to sleep on memory foam. Can't wait for our mattress to come in - it's about a 2 week wait being a special order.
I know I am not the only one looking for short or narrow RV mattresses so I figured I would share what I found.
Working because we have to - camping because we want to.
