A/S mattress situation

We took advantage of a sleep number mattress that camping world had on special. It is an RV short queen with radius corners and fits our 30' classic perfectly and we are very pleased with it, just as advertised ! The wireless remote with memory is a nice touch.
ciao

I wouldn't be too hasty in your judgement. I realize my wife and I must be the minority on this issue, but we love the mattress that came with our 2005 Safari. We have the Sleep Number queen at home and love it too. My sleep # is 100. That might give you an idea of why we like the firm stock mattress. Just saying.

The pillows are way overstuffed with remnants that remain from where they cut the mattress. I picked the seam of the pillows, removed about 15 cups of filling from each pillow and sewed them back up. Reducing the filler solved the problem of overstuffed pillows ... but the pillows are still very hot. I think I'll just cut the pillows down further and make some decorative pillows out them.
Thanks for the update. Glad to hear the mattress didn't sleep hot, were.you camping in Texas when you tried it out?
I have a cool foam pillow from JC Penny that i use at the house and i like it a lot. Nearly $50 but got it on sale for about half

We went for it and bought the latex 9" mattress from Rocky Mountain. After two weeks of sleeping on it I can say that we are completely satisfied. Still getting over the sticker shock but I believe it was worth every penny.

Us too, although I THINK that the Classic mattresses are an upgrade over the other models. I did throw the egg crate foam pad from the old trailer on it with a modestly padded mattress cover over the whole thing. Very comfortable....and when staying at a hotel with sleep number, I'm about a "25". So there you have pretty much both ends of the spectrum.

I still sleep on water at home! I think I'm the only one left.

After sleeping in my new 2012 25' FB FC for the past four months, I can attest to the quality of the Airstream OEM mattress. It is just plain cheap. You can't really get much cheaper. Thor's idea of a premium product and mine differ substantially, but I bought one of their trailers so who's laughing now?

The mattress on my trailer (it has been slept on for only about 100 nights) already has a deep valley in the middle, there are lumps all over, there's a water stain on the bottom, and it scoots 4 - 8" away from the poorly-insulated wall each night. That tends to suck on a $70k trailer.

I'm going to buy a new mattress, actually, I have to. The OEM one is shot and so is my nightly slumber. I appreciate the input made on this forum - it makes my choices easier.

Owner of two Classics - this is not true, but I would say my 2009 25FB Classic mattress was light years more comfortable than my 2011 30 Classic.

Heard 2013 trailers have upgraded mattress along with the return of the porcelain toilets, yea!,

We put a 3 1/2" memory foam topper from Cosco-cut with electric kitchen knife-on our OEM mattress-2012 25 ft FC RB. Has been great.

We did the same with a memory foam topper from Target in our 27' FB Serenity and what a difference. I've almost felt like I couldn't get up a few times. I was so far deep in it.

The memory foam topper was a satisfactory solution for a while but having one of those "wonderful" rear corner bed configurations made it even more complicated making the bed with a memory foam topper added into the equation. But again, a satisfactory solution in most cases. I just gave up the battle and eventually we purchased the custom mattress from Rocky Mountain mattress. Regardless of who you purchase a custom mattress from, if you contact Airstream Service and provide them with the model and year of your Airstream, then they will send you the factory drawing and dimensions in PDF form for you to send to the custom mattress manufacturer for the manufacture of your new mattress.

The mattress is great on our Int/EB with the addition of a mem foam topper, but the verdict is out on the D310 toilet ... as we have not been able to use it even once. The valve is leaking.

We have used the original mattress with foam wedge toppers on the upper half, maybe 350 nights or so. We're holding up well and so is the mattress.

mefly -
A friend had a piece of assembly trimming stuck in that valve (overflowed one night) in his new fifth wheel. You might try blowing it out with air pressure.

At home, we sleep on a futon w/a Costco memory foam on top. It's soft on top and it doesn't disturb your sleep partner when you move at night.

Our 2004 Classic mattress was too hard, so we did the same, put the Costco memory foam on top, cut it to round foot corners w/scissors. We just spent 20+nights on it and it was very comfy.

I think it will be a while before we want to change. Headed out again on Monday for a few weeks. Can't wait.
