New mattress

We need to replace the mattress in our mh and was wondering what others would recommend. What we have now is a king rv I believe.

We like the memory foam in the MH and the sticks & bricks. 8 or 10 inch seems good at about 6-800 dollars.

Whatever you get, plan to air it out for a week or two before installing if you are sensitive to chemicals.

A sleep number came in our coach. A couple of years ago I added a 3" foam pad from Bed Bath and Beyond. It sleeps as good or better than our $4,500 Sleepnumber I-10 that we have at home.

A good memory foam topper can make any mattress great including the sleep number that came in our MH.

Had two sleep number beds. Constant problems with leaks so number did not mean much!!! Bought a good matress and now can enjoy a good night sleep and a heck of a lot less expensive.

Memory Foam Mattress: Memory Foam Pillows, Foundations, Platform Beds

We bought a bed-in-a-box mattress and it is VERY comfortable. We have a tempurpedic mattress at home and this bed in a box is 1/2 the price and just as comfortable. Nothing like a great night's sleep when out camping.

Smile Bed In A Box

We're on our 3rd MH and on the last one we bought a queen short 11" memory foam mattress from bed in a box and absolutely loved it. It was as comfortable as our much more expensive one at home.

Recently we bought a new MH (2011 Bounder Classic) and just got our new 13" king short from bed in a box ($989. No shipping or tax) and it's wonderful, absolutely wonderful.

Buying an RV mattress isn't like going to a mattress store since the sizes are different. We really got lucky with this company.

We bought an IKEA sultan queen for our RV. It's super comfy! Don't see the need to get a special RVmattress unless the space is very limited.
