Sleep number

Replaced our short queen with a two sided sleep number mattress. Independent control of each sideís firmness. Very comfortable and no more complaints.

My neighbor had the same problem with a brand new RPod this year and Forest River replaced the mattress after he complained. Give it a try.

We bought a memory foam topper from Costco and it made for comfortable sleeps.

Bought used Select Comfort $200 for ours. Took it with us when we changed trailers.

We hv slept on one for over ten years now. Save a lot of $ and buy the cheapest mattress w/o topper. We replace the Costco topper every few years. Don't go for the bells whistles that do nothing for the sleep experience.

We just purchased a 31í 275vrl 2012 Forest River V-Cross. Mattress looks brand new. Sleeps 30 years old. Just really uncomfortable. So we bought a 3Ē topper from my Mr pillow. Going out this weekend. Iíll update on how it does.

We never slept on our included mattress once. I bought a 10 inch memory foam camper queen mattress on Amazon and we love it.

Our mattress issue is that we have to fold it up when we close the tent beds on our new 23IKSS. We bought a 1.5" egg create topper which we are able to fold up. Not sure if we could go any thicker. It is seemed comfortable the two nights we tried it. We'll be going out again in a few weeks. Has anyone had experience with amending or replacing the mattress in a hybrid? We have the heated mattress but that's mostly irrelevant because we're boondockers.

I tried a topper for many years and it may have helped slightly but not worth the hassle of trying to put the sheets on. Ended up with memory foam mattress from Amazon and now sleep better in my camper than I do at home.

Any ideas on replacing the mattress (it's shorter than the standard queen; 60"wide, 74" long) or have you purchased a memory foam mattress topper?
Sams Club, if you're a member, has a memory foam short queen topper on sale right now for $89. I got an email from them today about it.

The split mattress that came with the murphy bed in our Legend 203rkle was hard as a rock. A My Pillow topper from Costco made it pretty darn comfy. It's a bit harder to fold the murphy bed up, but we'll worth the hassle. I could not sleep on the mattress without it.

The so-called mattress in my camper was a very poor excuse for the mattress .. just in appearance only.

Tired one of those foam mattress toppers .... total waste of money. Bottom line is you can't polish a turd!

Trashed it, the factory "mattress" and bought a Beautyrest for good sleeping since.

I bought a 3inch latex mattress topper from amazon.
We LUV IT
It doesnít leave you with indentation of your body like memory foam. It is also cooler.
It cost a little more than memory foam mattress but if not allergic to latex. We highly recommend.

Made my own

The only problem with memory foam is it really heavy. Hereís the link to an online foam company that is very helpful, very competent and very reasonable I bought the stock size queen and cut it down with an electric carving knife. I have a fq wolf pup and the standard queen would compromise the entryway. Finished mattress was lighter and more flexible than stock, which helps when lifting it to reach the storage below.

Mattress Replacement

We too bought a new RPod 195 in June 2020. The very first thing I did was remove the mattress is sit it at the dumpster at our camping location. We then went to the local mattress store and purchased a new queen mattress and installed. Problem solved and sleep like a baby

The mattress in my used MH was awful. After looking around I decided to go with a 3 inch topper from My Pillow. They are the only brand, that I could find, that has an RV queen size pillow topper. Not the cheapest but, itís definitely cheaper than buying a new mattress and, it is extremely comfortable now.

I slept on my OEM Mattress one night. I went to a local Mattress Firm while camping at Emerald Isle Holiday Travel. They had three choices, good, better, best. I went with the Better, and it's great. It was $50 off and the Manager gave me another $50 off making it $266 OTD with Tax in. It is a Full Size Firm Queen, and it did cut down on the walk around room in the Bedroom, but I think it is well worth it to have the full size mattress. I mean how often to you walk around the bed while in the Bedroom anyways? I also extended the wood platform underneath that lifts up into the pass through storage area to match the mattress. I also installed a long cabinet handle in the front that you can grab and lift up the pass through door much easier.

Mattress

We tried the memory foam topper and tried a fairly thick mattress fitted cover. Nothing made much difference because the mattress was the problem.
We replaced the factory king mattress with a queen Tempur-Pedic. Had to cut down the platform but doing so gave us a few extra inches around the bed.
Very pleased.

Just a note: At home have a king size Sleep Number bed and a California King Sleep Number bed. Both are totally THE BEST sleeping beds available anywhere on the planet.

I would have much preferred a short queen Sleep Number in the camper but given the use it would get - couldn't justify the cost but when updating to a new unit soon, the Sleep Number for it is in the program.

Foam mattress

We purchased a 12" Travel Happy foam mattress off Amazon. The mattress is great! It's a little more expensive, but we use it a lot and good sleep is important!
