Ended up getting a Simmons 3" gel memory foam topper through Amazon. It feels great, but I did not consider the size when folding the thing. Its very bulky. Guess I will get some some sort of straps for it once it is rolled.

Our heated mattress never seemed to get very warm, I am not sure you would feel it with a 10" pad, we bought an electric blanket and it warms the bed up very nicely.

The heated mattress is only about 150 watts (about the output of a large light bulb). It doesn't "get hot" like an electric blanket. It mainly keeps the chill out. It works very well at that in hybrids. We used it in our Roo all the time. We have not camped in cold weather yet with our Mini Lite. Our pass-through/folded down sofa is under our mattress. Not QUITE the same as full outside air like in a hybrid, but somewhat better. So I can't yet comment on it's use in a Mini/Micro Lite.

So is it a heated mattress or just like a huge heating pad under mattress?

It's inside the bottom of the mattress. It's not something you can "see." If you didn't have the electrical connection, I don't think you'd ever know it was there.

So it sounds like I should stick with a 4"memory foam topper than replacing the whole thing with 10". I know my back won't handle just that mattress. But living in south texas I'm not sure we would ever need to use the heat..lol

Is it possible to add a topper to the murphy bed style? Want to make sure it'll fit before I decide to buy one... Thanks
