I should add from experience with my mattress business that RV'ers usually do not think of bedding for their RV in the same terms as for their home. They wouldn't give much thought to spending $1500 to $2500 for a home mattress but would have trouble spending more then $225 for one for their RV.

So Long!

Good morning Bob.
Funny you should mention that. Friends of ours enjoyed their foam mattresses in their Airstream so much that they duplicated it at home. As for us, we so enjoyed our Sleep Number at home, we duplicated it in our Airstream. Different strokes for different folks as we used to say in Texas! Have a great day!

I think this is a great idea! I know that we shopped around a lot before settling on one place for our cushion material and another for the foam and work. It is still costing Southern California prices ($1,200.00) EEEK! A user-friendly website would be a huge help! It would be so handy to search for a particular year and model of Airstream and get a quick quote! (When I think of all the loading and unloading of our stinky gaucho cushions into our vehicle so that we could take them around to upholstery shops!) I think you might be able to do a ton of business with gaucho slipcovers. What about other vintage trailers? Some of the beds I've sat on in those are really uncomfortable... GOOD LUCK!

Brings this thread to mind:

Then there's the rather expensive Bearbed RV Air Mattress -- I recall some threads testifying to their comfort; search on Bearbed.

Thanks for all the feedback. My wife is actually planning on doing this in her spare time and I like the ideas of having a good website with airstream specific information. Thanks again for all the feedback
