How Heavy are Twin Memory Foam Mattresses

We are considering converting our 25fb from queen to twins. Looking at getting a couple of memory foam twin mattresses. Not sure if I'll go with Rocky Mountain Mattress but the 8" would be the one I'd choose.

How heavy is a twin memory foam mattress?

Thanks

Kelvin

I ordered a custom made 8inch twin foam mattress from Mattress Insider. It was delivered in less than a week, and I couldn't be happier. I don't know the exact weight, but it is lighter than the original mattress for sure.

Is this what you purchased?

Luxury RV Mattress | RV Mattress Gel Foam - MattressInsider.Com

Did you have to supply them with the Airstream twin drawings?

I called them. Very helpful man explained to me how to measure the existing mattress. That was late on Friday. I had the new twin the next Thursday. I ordered the 8 inch...don't remember name. Not sure it as called gel. It wasn't the cheapest, which was a 5 inch, but the next one up. One mattress was about $400.

Looks like Rocky Mtn and Mattress Insider are both out of Colorado. Prices seem similar for the 8" memory foam. The one feature of the Mattress Insider 8" is the ability to turn it over to change the firmness. One side is firmer than the other.

It sounds like you got the 5.5" mattress.

Here is another place you may try. I don't know if they ship.
Franklin Bedding Products

My sister and BIL just had a real mattress made for here Airstream trailer (twins). They only ordered one side to try it out due to the price. It is a firm, coil spring mattress. It was about $500 due to the customization and the extra support along the edge where a person sits (put on pants, sock, shoes etc...)
I only laid down on it for two minutes and seemed fine. I am going camping at our Region Rally for a few days after labor day and I'm going to snag it for this trip and try it out for several days.

They tried our 8" memory foam mattresses from our trailer but did not like them. I would agree that they are just ok and at the end of the day I would prefer a real mattress.

Yes that is the main problem with mail order mattress, you can't try them out. Both places mentioned have a certain trial period. We have a Temperpedic mattress at home and at first the wife liked it, then didn't like it because it got too hot, and now likes it enough to bug me to swap it out from the spare bedroom with our traditional mattress.

My only concern is the weight. Our queen Temperpedic is pretty heavy.

We put a queen Temperpedic topper on our AS mattress and like it. It weighs 40 lbs.

We replaced the double original with an 8" foam queen. To my mind, the foam was definitely lighter than the original so I wouldn't sweat a few pounds difference width wise.
