They are substantial, I had thought that when you sat on them you would feel/hit the bottom, not the case with these. I suppose you could always top them with 1 or 2" of foam also at a later time. They come rolled up into a tight cellophane and we picked them up right at the store.

wait, so you used standard size twin mattresses? aren't the bunks 6" skinnier than a reg twin?? wouldn't that take a whole foot out the isle between them? Or maybe I need to remeasure my bunks. I thought they were 33" x 79"... and a standard twin is 39" wide?

Also, what is the weight diff between mattresses and foam?

Trust me, I would love to use twin mattresses for the simple fact that you can just throw sheets on em and wash or change out as needed.

Yes, standard twins, yes it takes up a few inches of aisle space, but we can still walk to the bathroom in the back no prob. I have a mattress cover, sheets (flat and fitted) and a puffy quilt on them in the picture to show you how much aisle space you'll have. Im a real "do it simple" and inexpensive person. The mattresses are light IMO, I can lift one by myself by the handles.

I bought my queen sized 13 inch Accu-Gold foam mattress from Overstock for about $330 with shipping from Overstock.com The ad stated that the retail price for the "RV Mattress" was over $3K...what a bargain if this was the case. I am a full timer and have been sleeping on it for about 6 months and it is like brand new. It is in four pieces so it is easy to install it. I recommend a zippered cover to keep it clean from dust.

Rocky Mountain Mattress delivery process is broken – BEWARE. People say Rocky Mountain Mattress for an Airstream is a good product but their product delivery system seems only to work if the mattress is shipped to the billing address. If you’re on the move and want your mattress sent to any place other than your billing address – BEWARE. Even though the order from Rocky Mountain Mattress plainly said to deliver to a different address than our billing address between a two week window it was shipped to the billing address anyway. We received no notice of shipping or a tracking number when it was first shipped. Since we were not at the billing address it stayed on our porch until a neighbor took it in. Rocky Mountain Mattress did provide a shipping number finally but it took us several days to figure out that the shipping number provided was to pick up at our billing address in order to correct their mistake and send the mattress to the correct delivery address. However, it did not arrive in time at the delivery address and we had left. Then they just dropped us, would not communicate with us or right their shipping mistake. We found ourselves with a mattress at a rental house 700 miles from our billing address left to fend for ourselves. NOT A GOOD EXPERIENCE. BEWARE.
