Mattress on pull out bed

I have a discovery with a pull out bed on the couch and the blatter for the air mattress as an air leack, I aws wondering if anyone out there ever went true this, the blatter is pretty costly its $245.00 no pump or valve, I was wondering if I put a memory foam toper on it instead of the blater if I would be able to close the couch? The thing about the air blater is that you never know how long its going to last. Any toughts about this? Joe

I'm thinking of using an arrow bed on the hide a bed. You can blow them up fast. And not bad to sleep on. Since it wont be me..

Thumbs up Mattresses

We also have an 03 HR Vacationer with a fold out couch. After realizing that the issue mattress was designed for people that you don't want to stay over 2 nights I started looking around. I noticed that the new ones have the inflateable mattresses. I tried an inexpensive Coleman mattress on it and it was quite comfortable with a pillow top mattress top. I deflated it and slid it all back into the couch.
The next time I opened it I found out that the description of a "Scisssors type bed frame" was aptly named. It cut up the inflateable mattress like a shredding maching.
Finally we bought some pieces of flannel backed vinyl on sale at "Jo-Ann's Fabrics Store". We put it over the scissors area and then put a better inflateable mattress on it (height only 5"). When inflated we then put the pillow top back on with a sheet on top of that. It was quite comfortable and one of our daughers, "the Princess with the pea under her 7 mattresses), thought it was quite comfortable.
The only catch is that when you are going to fold up the bed you have to deflate the mattress, fold it up and store it away.
Now that the kids and grandkids can stay for 7 days and nights and be comfortable we are all stuck with deflating the Coleman each morning and inflating it each night. Small potatoes! It sits on good also

Ninos, I bought one of these mattress's for my pull out bed in my 2000 Winnebago Adventurer and loved it. You could let the air out and just close up the couch with it on the bed. Air Dream :: Sofa Sleeper System - Air Over Coil Technology.

I think you might have missed the key word, "shredded", Perry.

I have an Air Dream system and have had it for six years. The air mattress has not been replaced yet and it is used pretty often. I like it and it is pretty comfortable.
