Costco Memory Foam Mattress

I'm considering replacing my mattress in the Motor Home due to waking up with a sore back. Question: Has anyone purchased the 12" NovaformŽ Gel Memory Foam Queen Mattress form Costco ($499), if so, what is you opinion?

We purchased a similar Memory Foam Mattress from Costco, it was $799.00 and found it quite comfortable. Problem was it is so heavy that lifting it to get at the under bed storage was almost impossible . Sold it and went to Select Comfort.

We don't own one, but some very close friends have now had two of them, the original and the warranty replacement. Their problem was that after two years the foam no longer recovered shape and there were indentations on surface and it was no longer comfortable. It was replaced under warranty, without question, but the terms of the warranty limit replacement to a single time. All is not sometimes what you see at first glance. Read the fine print.

On the issue of weight, yes it is quite heavy, as most 12" mattress' are.

They're also very warm to sleep on as they don't dissipate the body heat. Sometimes a little too much so.

We are using a memory foam mattress in our bed at home since about four years and love it. No more hurting backs for us. We just bought one for the MH. Aldi had it on special for $275.

We have had the Costco memory foam mattress in the MH for about 1 year. No problems so far and it is the most comfortable mattress we own.

You might also consider a memory foam topper. Costco also carries those. We've added them to both of our MHs, our home, the kids homes, and others. They work great for us and will only run about $100 to $120 for the queen size.
As one of the posters mentioned, the weight makes it more difficult to access under bed storage.

Agree on the topper. We use one at home from Costco and one came with our Air bed mattress in the MH.

We use a an old model memory foam topper from Costco in stick house (not sold anymore and I have read complaints about the new Costco topper) - discovered Overstock.com has a good selection of memory foam toppers and we bought a king sized one and cut it down to fit two twin beds in the RV. Toppers helped my bad back and significantly improved an otherwise nasty RV bed.

YUP - I have had 2 back surgeries, and must have better mattress support for good sleep - we got the toppers from Overstock.com for the house and both RV's, wouldn't be without them!

If you go the topper route, the 4 inch thickness does the job nicely, and is cheaper and far easier to move and install than a full thickness version - as long as the underlying mattress or support is flat and in good condition...

Nick,
We have had our Costco memory mattress for 5 years. It has been very comfortable. It is very heavy to lift the bed, and I prop the bed up with a 2x4,not trusting the struts. I would check out a Select Comfort. We have the Select at home and Patty and I can adjust the firmness. I am a 100 Patty is a 55.

The mattress (foam) does hold the cold temperatures. So we use an electric blanket to warm it up.

Added a 2 inch to our sleep number what a difference.

We had two cheaper memory foams in this and our previous coach, and they both broke down and lost their memory, so we finally went to Temperpedic deluxe, same mattress we have in our house. Been in there 3 years and still feels like brand new. Sleeps wonderfully on bad backs. Costs a little more, weighs more, but doesn't break down, works great and the only issue is when it's really cold. Just is a little hard at first until it gets some body heat. An electric blanket would help, but we've found a good comforter or extra blanket usually does the trick when it's down below 30 degrees outside and we're keeping the coach at 58-60 overnight.

We have also found when we stop the coach after a driving and it's warm outside, we lift the rear hatch to help cool the bedroom, but the Temperpedic also helps insulate us from the heat of the engine.

When we have to lift the mattress we just prop it up, or use two people to move it out of it's space.

So it's another option but it works great.
