110 volt only. This really was designed for home use. If you start looking be sure you only look at the Aerobed Topper. Not the regular Aerobed which is a bed in itself.

If I were boondocking I would make sure that the beds were inflated to maximum pressure before I left. You can always bleed air out if necessary. Quite honestly one of the reasons I haven't moved faster on power for the pump is that we normally fill them to max pressure and don't make any adjustments. We've been out almost 10 days at a time and they don't seem to lose pressure in that time frame.

The mattress in our 34' was the original Airstream RV-queen (read short) mattress that was nine years old and in not-very-good condition. My wife tore out the headboard and we bought a memory foam full-sized queen and installed it. We liked it so well, we moved our select-comfort style airbed into our guest room and bought a second memory foam queen for the house!

It's so nice not having to adjust to a different bed when we use the trailer.

I purchased the 2" memory foam topper with 5 lb. density and put it on our king size bed at home. My wife loves it. I am eyeing the same thing for the Sovereign and will probably order from Overstock.com like I did the first one.

Our '65 still had the original foam and it was like old hard bread (hard but crumbles with use), we just had new cushions madewith a four inch premium base and two inches of memory foam, so nice we had to sleep in the trailer just to try them out. Wow waht a difference that makes, and they were only $600 for both gouchos.

I'm pondering this foam issue: With the dinnetes, or even the goucho, do the cushions breakdown from all the butt pressure... and become lumpy to sleep on? Does anyone carry along a topper to roll out over the cushions... in particular with the dinnete and the abundance of seams from the cushions pushed together?

Firm but....comfortable. Old school..use a down quilt at times.
Love our twin layout.

Oddly enough, I sleep like a baby on the Airstream factory bed. I have a memory foam at home and like it, but don't sleep as well as I do in the Stream...go figure.

Hi, same here; We have memory foam topper at home and we sleep better in the trailer. The factory mattress is pretty firm and the pillows are very soft, so we double up on the pillows.

Other than my down topper I haven't changed from factory set-up. That way when the DW hop's over for a visit I can just thro it on the floor, she likes firm, better purchase I guess.

We had our cushion remade with new premium foam and fabric. We used such a high grade of foam that the cushions were too hard to sleep on. We now carry a 2" memory foam topper for when we make up the dinette and couch into beds. Sleeping is bearable now.
The only downer with this setup is storing the foam topper during the day. It usually gets wrapped and tossed in the shower. You folks with permanent trailer beds have it nice!
