Upgraded Airstream Mattress

Has anyone tried the one from the Airstream store? It seems to be an upgraded one. Our 2016 isnt bad, but its not great. I sleep on my side and its too thin, get pressure on my hip.

https://store.airstream.com/product/...lush-mattress/

I wonder who makes this for Airstream..

We bought one of the mattress toppers from Costco, cut it to fit the corner bed in our 23CB and love it.

We purchased a Casper Mattress and it fits fine in our 25fb. We didn't have to cut it down at all. We own two Casper mattresses in our home and we love them. We had a Temperpedic for years and we like the Casper much better. We just lengthened the bed a bit with a piece of plywood and we now sleep MUCH better!

We ordered two twin luxury cool memory foam mattresses from mattressinsider.com for out 2004 Classic. $400 each. Custom shaped to the trailer. They are much more comfortable than the $3000 memory foam mattress we have in our master bedroom at home!

We went another direction. We bought a pair of Thermarest Mondo King 3D self-inflating mattress pads to go on our queen bed platform. They are incredibly comfortable. Just have to remember to open a valve on each pad before we depart for our next camping destination so they can breathe as we change altitude along the way. Before bedtime we close the air valves again, and then we dream the night away.

We cut a 2 inch memory foam to fit our twins and it makes a big difference .
I think we paid $119 for a king memory foam topper and cut it to size using the mattresses as templates

Just as an aside...

Our twin mattresses rested on 1/4" plywood that was:
1) 4" too narrow
2) unsupported in the center.
3) had a gap on the wall (over the outside storage boxes)

Per the sleep number rep we spoke to, donít forget to deflate to a reading of 50 before hitting the road. If you gain significant elevation without doing this, you risk stretching the air bag(s) and ruining the bed.

Thanks for the reminder! We are heading west in June and I had completely forgotten about this. The good news is we normally run at 45 or lower so it probably doesn't matter but we may have to deflate to get the same comfort level.

Upgraded Airstream Mattress

Good plan. When we drove from 2000 feet to 7000 feet and camped there, every closed container was poofed up due to the change in air pressure. Everything, that is, except our self-inflating Thermarest mattresses, on which we had (thankfully!) remembered to open the valves that morning before starting out.
