Tempurpedic full queen works great for me.

We had 2 twin mattresses custom made in Winnipeg MB by Rest More. They are 8" with no foam of any type in them. I am allergic to foam, so they used the standard 5" coil system, with all batting on top, and a nominal amount on the bottom. Very firm and we get a great sleep. Took pattern into them on a Tuesday morning and picked up the new mattresses on Friday noon. Cost was $300.00 each. I think we got a great deal, as well as great mattresses.

Went with the Sleep Number, RV Queen. May get one for the home. Wife likes it that much more than our tempurpedic.

I've been hearing good things about sleep number beds, but don't you have to have 110 power for them to work? What happens when you're dry camping?

Hmm... that's a good point. I don't have a Sleep Number in the RV but we do have one at home. Once our mattress is filled with air to the desired firmness it remains at that number for a very long period of time. I think you could unplug the unit and it would remain at that firmness until you wanted to change it. So I'm guessing that periods of dry camping would not pose a significant problem.

You could also use an appropriately sized inverter to take power from your batteries and convert it to 120 AC to run the Sleep Number pump/control. When the pump/control is plugged in it probably uses a small amount of power to keep its brain active but it's not as if the pump has to run regularly to maintain the pressure.

The above is speculation on my part based on my home experience. I'm sure somebody with direct experience will chime in here.
