Mattress

I know there has been a lot of threads on replacing the mattress. I have done various searches looking for them but could not fine any specfic ones. Anyway we are thinking of replacing ours ( we have added the additional foam but it has not worked out well). I was wondering what type of pricing to expect and will they need to be custom made. I seen folks mention Rocky Mountain Mattress and also temper pedic. Are there others brands out there. Also can you tell me the pros and cons of the one you bought. I have to get this right to ensure my wife gets good sleep.

Thanks
John

We like a firm mattress, so we had a futon made to size and shape. Works great for us.

We bought a memory foam mattress and cut it to size with an electric knife.

We do not like memory foam, just do not sleep well on it. We bought the Sleep number RV mattress. It is a huge improvement from the supplied mattress. Since my wife likes less firm and I like firm, it is a perfect solution. Our last trip was the first one with this mattress and we both slept very well. Camping World has these on sale from time to time.

That was one of the first purchases I made for my AS.
Never did like foam mattresses.
So I had twins made at the local Futon store. They are a bit longer and narrower than anything you find that's standard.
Didn't really cost much extra for the custom size.
One disadvantage to using a futon is they are heavier than other mattresses so if you are watching your GVW closely it's something to consider.

Another vote for Select Comfort. Altho pricey, each bed occupant can be happy. And, should the mood strike, a change in firmness is just a button push away.

We love our sleep number RV mattress. We also have the mattress genie so we can raise the head and sit up in bed. Works for us, and we got them on sale at CampingWorld.

Jason, does the Sleep Number need AC to adjust the pressure? Has this been much of a problem or do you just set it once and forget it?

Hah- great question! Yes, when the altitude changes, the mattress pressure changes. At the Grand Canyon my sleep number of 35 was over 100 due to altitude. As we didn't have shore power, we used an inverter in the cig lighter to change the setting (remove air).

still we love the form fitting of the mattress, and have leaned if traveling major altitude changes to be prepared to reduce the air settings.
