Where can one get a Tempur-Pedic for an AS? We have one at home & love it. We've got the "queen" bed in our 23' Int'l.

replacing queen mattress

simple, measure your space, throw out old mattress, install a plywood base large enough to support the t-pedic queen,and you are done.Downside is you lose a little floor space,upside is well worth it.We did our 25'Safari many years ago and feel the trade off makes sense

Heck, we let the Tempur-Pedic hang off the end of the existing support board. The softness allows us to move around the larger footprint by merely pressing on the overhang with the side of our leg. We use all of our normal queen linens in AS or in house. That gives us multiple changes without purchase of special sized linens. It's a dream.

New Mattress

The new mattress that we purchased from Rocky Mountain Mattress is in place and of much better quality than the original mattress that came in the Airstream. This is the 8 inch Sunrise mattress.

Following are a couple photos.

Frank and Mike

after you have slept on it a couple of times, please post on how it is to sleep on temperature wise... i have looked at Rocky Mountain website and am impressed but wonder how their mattresses compare temperature wise to temper pedics which do seem to be hot to sleep on

thanks
Dana

Tempur Pedic or any other foam mattress is very hot. There is no air flow unless you use a good quality mattress pad. Foam mattresses are not for everyone and take some getting accustom to.

I don't. I hate hot weather and have never felt that our T-Pedic was hot. YMMV.

We have the original Tempur-Pedic in both the AS and our Cabin. We don't find either of them any "hotter" than a regular mattress. We DO find that we feel 10 years younger when we get up in the morning compared to a "regular" mattress such as we experience in hotels. The old bones stiffnes is gone and we sleep so much more soundly. We love them and recommend them to our family and friends.

We have a foam mattress. The only time we thought it was warm was this weekend, when we got into a campsite at about 10:15 at night, after the camper baked in the sun all day without the A/C on, and we went to bed around 11 or so - meaning the air conditioner didn't have time to cool things down. It was still in the 90s inside the camper when we started the A/C. It was fine by morning, and it has been fine every other time we've used it. We do have a mattress pad, so maybe that's the difference for us.

On the trip home I tried to sleep on the twins and wound up on the couch where I felt the foam was more comfortable. I then cut up a king memory foam topper for the twins, but it was still just not enough for my wife and I as we are both side sleepers.

I then ordered custom made top of the line twin mattresses from Verlo that we had made 6 inches wider. I also increased the width of the deck as well, which allowed me to move the under bed storage drawers out "in" about 3 on each side for a bit more outside storage compartment room.

Does anyone actually sleep on the mattresses as they come from the factory in new units?

I have never had a Tempur Pedic mattress so can't answer the question as it relates to Tempur Pedic. But once we have had the opportunity to use this mattress I'll let you know my thoughts on the Rocky Mountain Mattress.

I purchased a Tempur Pedic mattress from Artisans Custom Mattress in Saginaw Michigan 2 weeks ago to replace my factory installed mattress and have been very pleased. I find it very comfortable and not hot.

Jack, I'm sure they are a good company, but we have a custom mattress maker right here IN Virginia Beach, The Original Mattress Factory, 3750 Virginia Beach Blvd. They will make it in foam, latex or memory foam, innerspring, and pretty much any thickness and shape you need. They did mine in a 3 day turnaround.
