The Mattress in my 2000 Excella is Horrible!

We just came home from our first shakedown trip for this summer - and I can't take it any more! The mattress has got to go! I believe that we can put up with the size - ours is the center Queen - but I don't want any more of our trips to be an endurance contest. Unfortunately, we do have a King bed at home, and there is a definite re-adjustment required - but it would be a lot easier if the mattress was comfortable. I would like to hear from everyone who has replaced their mattress - or otherwise made changes in this torture rack! For the record, I think that the front couch is more comfortable.

Have you given any thought to adding a couple of inches of memory foam on top of the current mattress?

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

My wife and I just got a Sleep Comfort bed for our house. We both have back problems. It is the most comfortable bed we have slept in. She adjusts her side I do mine. When I retire I am seriously thinking of getting one for our 2006 Classic 25'. Currently we have memory foam on the Queen bed in the camper. It all depends hwo much a 'good night's sleep' is worth.
