Do you guys really sleep on the factory mattress?

My mattresses have the factory bed heater and egg shells and jersey sheets. Man that mattress is unconformable, after a little while it's harder than a rock. What do you guys use?
I have a 2003 Rockwood 1640 that hasn't been used much.
Thanks in advance, Alan

My wife and I like a firm mattress, so all we did was add one of those egg carton style foam pads along with a quilted mattress pad. Works for us.
We have a heated mattress and it still works great even with the foam pad and quilted cover.

We already had a queen sleep number bed. Really like it, except when changing altitude need to lower number if going up in altitude, and almost always reset it when parked.

nearly all popup and hybrid owners that i know, use an egg crate or memory foam topper.
we've used them on both our popups and now with our hybrid.

Took the mattress out of the spare room. I think the stock mattress is filled with old newspapers.

Thanks, it has a foam topper but it's maybe 2" of foam. It deffinetly needs more. Would a 5" or 6" foam mattress fit? I searched Wally world online and they have both sizes that arnt priced to bad.

Yes we do - that is if you consider it as a box spring under the 4" Memory Foam mattress on top of it.
