I guess we are lucky. We both really like the queen mattress that came in our 02 Safari 25B. I appears that it was not used much by the PO and is very good quality.

We love the firm mattress that came with our 05 Safari. Even at 63 I still like a very firm matress. Thank you Airstream! We have a sleep number bed at home and will get one for the Safari when this one gets old. BTW, my sleep # is 100.

Thanks to everyone for all the responses regarding the mattress in our 25' FB. We bought a topper today so will see if that helps. But eventually we will need to replace the mattress. I wake up to too much back/hip pain each morning from a painful night's sleep.

I have back injury and the topper made a very big difference. You may not have to replace the mattress.

Thanks for telling me about Rocky Mountain Mattress. I plan to call them on Tuesday and will order a new mattress. The firmness of the OEM is not as much a problem of the firmness as it is with the fact that it's breaking down too quickly. I end up sleeping in a deep hole and wake up with terrible backaches. I wouldn't be surprised if Rocky Mountain Mattress already has a template for the 25' FB mattress (with all its curves). Thanks again.

We too used a memory foam topper and even my wife (you remember the fairy tale the princess and the pea), is very comfortable with the queen in our 25 foot '97 Safari.

Just had the local bed manufacturer make me an 80" twin mattress/box spring set. Even in a Silver Streak it's a bit tall. And with a memory foam topper even more so. But this inexpensive new bed with the topper sleeps wonderfully well.

I look forward to a better trailer this calendar year -- different floorplan: a rear bedroom queen -- and will have those folks make up the best bed set possible (as always, after reading all pertinent threads on this forum). Bob Thompson got my attention (former RV retail bed store owner) with his words on tallalay latex on at least one of those threads.

I had a lumbar laminectomy last year and the mattress was just to hard. I invested in a Sensus topper that was reccomended by zlee on this forum. I have slept in it four nights in a row now and the difference is incredible. Pricey, but so was the trailer and if I can't get a good nights sleep I might as well go back to the tent.
