New Mattress

I am a new RVer and we just bought a used Class C motorhome and we want to replace the mattress that is in there. Are we supposed to buy a special mattress or can we get any mattress. I was thinking about putting in a sleep number mattress. Any thoughts?

Just measure the space you want the new mattress to fit in to, and as long as you have the room, you are good to go with any mattress you want to get.

Measure to make sure of the size and then find what you want to sleep on and get that.

Ah, I completely agree with your choice of a Sleep Number mattress, we love ours both in the Coach and the house. BUT, for a sleep number you need to double check the physical dimensions AND a place for the air pump, hoses to the mattress and 115 VAC outlet to drive the pump.

We bought a 2003 Pace Arrow last year with a 10 year old Sleep Number mattress. While in Florida last year for the winter, we replaced the Sleep Number with a regular full size queen mattress.
Much better!

We're in the market for a new mattress as well. Really thought about the sleep number but in reading some articles they don't give a very positive feedback especially if you to replace something. Soooo I guess we'll just shop out a conventional mattress and hope we're happy with our decision. Anything has to be better then what we have now.

We just ordered a new mattress from MattressInsider.com. They have all the odd sizes found in motorhomes and their prices seem reasonable.

We have the sleepnumber bed in our MH, as soon as it fails, we will go back
to a regular mattress.

I love sleeping in the Class A because of the Sleep Number Mattress.

In the Class A the area under the mattress is storage are so thats where pump and hoses are. In my Class C the area under the bed is the water pump and FW tank. Not sure I could convert ti to a Sleep Number using that space.

I replaced the RV mattress in my Class C the first week I had it. I went with a 13" pillow top queen. Fit great, lost about 2" of access no real issue.

For those with a Sleep Number mattress....

When you go from sea level to high altitudes is there a problem with the mattress expanding as you gain altitude?

when we looked at sleep matresses in their store they warned us to let some air out if we went to high altitudes. We opted for a temper pedic. That is what we had in our stick house mattress and we love it so bought one for the MH

We installed a queen size memory foam mattress, not just a topper in our MH. We love it, got it at Costco.

I had a memory foam mattress. Done people love them. I used it 6 months and threw it away. Bought a premium number bed a few months ago. It's the best.

In our 5th wheel, it had about a 4 inch frame under the crappy RV mattress....I ripped all that out and put a thicker queen sized posturpedic on the floor....much better
