We got a Queen sized memory foam topper at Wally-world; really improved the quality of sleep in the trailer.

I think was about a $200 cdn investment, and worth every penny...

We also use the memory foam topper from Walmart. It's best to let them air out for week before you put them on the bed though.

The story tells of a prince who wants to marry a princess, but is having difficulty finding a suitable wife. Something is always wrong with those he meets, and he cannot be certain they are real princesses because they have bad table manners or they are too fat or thin or not beautiful. One stormy night a young woman drenched with rain seeks shelter in the prince's castle. She claims to be a princess, so the prince's mother decides to test their unexpected, unwitting guest by placing a pea in the bed she is offered for the night, covered by 20 mattresses and 20 feather-beds. In the morning, the guest tells her hosts that she endured a sleepless night, kept awake by something hard in the bed that she is certain has bruised her. The prince rejoices. Only a real princess would have the sensitivity to feel a pea through such a quantity of bedding, so the two are married.


My princess is just like this one, and loves a #' MF topper.

Add to this story a one degree drop in temperature and then she froze to death all night! Then you have my princess.

When we had our pup, we had 2" topper that we trimmed down. Worked great with the heated mattresses. Only problem was closing up the top also but if we didn't lock the door to the roof it was fine.

I purchased a 1 1/2 inch topper, I place it on the couch and dinette when ready to tear down camp. The topper was to thick for lid to shut with out forcing it down to lock. Plus the weight of topper is over the axel and not adding to on tongue weight. Still have room to store flat items between other bunk and topper.

Thanks for the information on using the topper with a heated mattress. We used two on our Prowler the whole time we owned it. It does make a world of difference. We used a one inch and that was enough to make the mattress very comfortable. The nice thing about the one inch is that it folds easily, if there is a problem closing the trailer they can be folded and placed on the floor. Had a queen for the bed and a twin for the convertible sofa. They will now go into our HW.

mattress toppers

We purchased 2 3 inch memory foam toppers from Amazon (Cloud 9) branded and really love them. One word of caution would be whether you can easily close and lock up the pup with them in place.......not an easy thing with our 2514G. I finally figured out that if I fold up the queen size and store it under the dinette and then after I have pushed in the ends pull the king size to the center of the coach so it spans both bunks that I can much close and lock the top much easier. Seems that our old Viking had alot more head room after closing than the new one does....lol

As far as comfort goes, they are fantastic. The coach already has a decent innerspring mattress in it but now is almost like home! I like mine a bit firmer so I purchased a level 4.3 and the other half like it softer so a level 4.2. We don't sleep together when camping because our huskies like to bunk with us as well and even in the king there is crowding going on with all of us...

I'd be apt to consider replacement foam for the mattresses before adding a topper. Measure to see how much height you have, but a higher density foam would still be comfortable yet would be easier on the body.

Mattress Topper

I replaced the mfg crummy mattress with a ten inch memory foam mattress. From Walmart. DW loves it.
