Good Night Sleep Mattress Upgrades

I am taking delivery of a new 27 FB in early April. I have already experienced the mattress that comes with the AS. It was horribly uncomfortable. Anyone have any suggestions for which brand makes a great RV queen sized (short) mattress? I'm not interested in doing memory foam toppers.

There's been a bit of discussion on this topic -

One that comes to mind is a thread about the Sleep Number Bed... though I don't know if they make a short queen.

There's also tempurpedic mattresses (not a topper).

Good luck.

The mattress that comes in the Classic might be a better one. Should be able to upgrade?

We remodeled our 22' CCD so we could have a RV Queen size sleep number bed in it. We sleep great, better than at home. It was well worth it

Brad, how much does the Sleep Number weigh? Is it lighter, heavier or about the same as a standard mattress?

A sleep number mattress is significantly lighter. It has an air bladder in it.

Last time I checked the RV sleep number required 115v AC to adjust. Is that still the case?

Regards,
Ken

Sleep Number DOES make a short queen, very light in weight and significantly more comfy than the rock that Airstream installs with their trailers. After sleeping on a Sleep Number at home we just had to have one in our Airstream. The don't inflate with the 12V system however. Good luck.

We replaced our island queen mattress with one from Verlo. They make the mattress to order at the retail outlet. Ours is a short queen. They also advertise an RV division, but ours is an inner spring mattress. Down side is that it is heavy.

Mattress fix on the cheap. Our 1971 had two new twin mattresses when we bought it. Firm and not good for us. After pricing new air mattresses I looked for a less expensive solution. Ozark Mountian had a camping air mattress the same dimensions as we needed. They worked but were not quite the ticket for cold nights as they did not keep you warm. We cut the end of the mattress and removed all the hog rings so we ended up wiyh just the outer quilting. The camping mattress fit inside perfect. Now we sleep good and total cost was less than $25.00 for both mattresses.
