Sleep Number Bed?

Hi fellow Airstreamers.....
I was just wondering if anyone has a sleep number bed by Select Comfort in their Airstream.
They're on sale at Camping World.
Friends that have them in their homes rave about how comfortable they are.
For the short queen 60x75 it's 999.00 (1343.00 regular price)
Dennis

Hey Dennis,

My wife and I love our queen size sleep number bed in our 30' bunkhouse. We discarded the original mattress after a week of use because a "pit of dispair" developed and became very uncomfortable. You do need a place to store the pump which is permanently attached to the mattress and allows you to adjust the air pressure on both sides of the mattress. I was able to fit the pump in the wardrobe adjacent to the bed. I had to drill some holes in the paneling of the wardrobe to allow the air tubes exit. In all, I would do it again in a second. I sleep better in the trailer than at home, giving me an excuse to take trips often.

Bye,
Paul

Hi Paul
Will the pump fit under the bed? In our 27' FB the whole bed lifts up for extra storage. The next thing to figure out is where's the best place to plug it in.
Thanks!
Dennis

Love it!

Dennis,

We sleep on one at home and just love it so it goes to say we had to have one in our Airstream. Zzzzzzzz. Now we sleep as well, and at times better, as at home.
HAPPY TRAILS

Dennis,
The air pump is a rather small, compact unit with two clear air hoses running from it, one to each mattress bladder. A control wire runs from the pump unit to the remote used to fill and drain air from the bladders. The pump will obviously have a power cord. Not knowing the set up of your trailer but using my imagination I would think you could drill a few holes in your bed deck and mount the pump underneath with the air and power lines coming through to the bed etc. Our unit has power in the wardrobe units on each side of our bed so no problem. I cannot imagine the installation will be a problem for you to figure out once you see the setup. Good luck and sleep well.
HAPPY TRAILS

hmmmmmmm
Looks like we have to think seriously about getting one!
Does the pump have to be plugged in all of the time or can it be unplugged after you get it to the "right number"?
Thanks
Dennis

Hey Dennis,

The air tube attachment is at the head of the bed for both of the bladders. Does your 27' have a front storage compartment accessible from the outside? Our 30' does, and that is why I opted to place the pump in the wardrobe. In addition, you are going to need 120 volt power to the pump. You need to consider this during the pump's placement.

BTW, that 27' FB sure is a nice layout. What is your impression?

Bye,
Paul

Dennis,
I'd want to leave it plugged in for a number of reasons. It'll take a while for you to achieve your right Sleep Number. Different air temps during storage may make the bed firmness change and require adjustment. One of you might travel alone for some reason and want both bladders set to your Sleep Number. Moving the pump each time would eventually become a hassle. Phone Sleep Comfort and ask a representative if the pump needs to be constantly hooked up to power. Good question.
HAPPY TRAILS

Dennis, Piece of cake in a 27 FB.

The pump will easily fit under the bed and you can run the airlines to two holes drilled through the bed plate near the head.

You probably have a plug already for your nightstands and can plug in there.

hard edges

a friend exchanged his for a temperpudic, he says the edge frame of the comfort air bed bothered him getting in and out of bed, it's like the old water bed frames.
