Queen RV Mattress

Hey folks we had to replace our 2 year old mattress from our TT.
The corners of the mattress wore out and the coil spring were poking through the top. When we bought the unit the salesman told us that RV mattress are not the best and it maybe helpful to buy a memory foam topper....we didn't and there is no warranty.
Anyway we purchasesd a RV queen through Sleep Country..a mattress store. What a nice difference. Paid about $400.00
Hope no one else has similar issues.
Coops

Re: Queen RV Mattress

We just picked up a 3" topper for our "mattress". I figure if have a problem we'll just throw the topper on the plywood. Couldn't be much worse.

Have to see how it does on the next big trip.

Re: Queen RV Mattress

I'm a 6 foot, 220 pounder and the first weekend out I left a sizable dent in the new mattress. We have a sleep #'s bed at home and absolutely love it. I've been thinking perhaps we need one for the trailer, now I just have to talk "she who must be obeyed" into thinking it's a good idea.

Cheers

Re: Queen RV Mattress

Theres nothing like a good night's sleep guy's. You cant beat a good Mattress. Every one i talk to says thats where all the Manufacturers of TT's save a bit of cash. One of the first things i did when shopping for a Trailer was climb on the bed to see how comfy it was. First impressions count, right....As soon as i get the trailer level enough to stop falling out of bed, I'l be good to go Only kidding guy's. It's the wife who keeps pushing me out of bed.

I have a sleep # bed in my house & Teton trailer. Once I pick-up my Voltage this weekend I'm swapping out the beds between the Teton & Voltage. Doing the same with the 17.5 tires & wheels.

I would like to replace my mattress. But is doesn't seem that simple. First the mattress in my 3905 has round corners so mods to the mattress platform would seem necessary. Second, a home mattress is three times the weight. And lastly , the mattress has to be able to bend in the center to access under the bed area.

I guess Select Comfort does not make the single chamber air mattress any longer. And what happens when you go from sea level to an 8,000 foot elevation pass. Doesn't your mattress Sleep Number Mattress try to explode.

Teton has rounded corners & works just fine. Have no problem getting to the under storage area either. Sleep # bed weighs way less than a standard bed cause not using a box springs under it. Yes it does go up to 100 psi at at 6,000 ft. but never had a problem. Had it for ten years.

I replaced my mattress with a Tempur-Pedic "Weightless Supreme" model last November... BEST modification I've made to my rig so far!!

Yeah, it's heavier... but I gotta tell you, I sleep GOOD!

How heavy? Can you easily raise the bed to access under it? I'm looking for a new mattress but don't want to make a wrong choice. I am not a big fan of the air style beds. Had my Select Comfort rupture from elevation gain in my other RV!

I replaced my mattress early on with the pillow top we had at home. Upgraded the home mattress to a new one. Like ATC Guy, this was one of the best things I did. That mattress that came with it was like a rock.

I did have to upgrade the shocks to be able to hold the mattress up. My mattress deck hinges about 2/3's up so the mattress does not have to fold in half.

I'd say at least twice as heavy... but, that said, I still have no problem raising the bed platform to gain access to storage.
