Awhile back we lost the hatch cover over the bed and to get the foam out of our Lance to dry I had to fold it in half and wrestle for my life to get it out. Now we it uncomfortable to use for a week vacation and was wondering, short of putting in two twin matteresses, what do you do to replace your matteress?

Wrestle like heck to get the new one in.

Actually hubby did most of the wrestling. We went with an actual brand name pillow top. Worth every ounce of weight.

We once removed our matress, Bigfoot 3000. In the cabover we folded the matress and then tied it tight with rope at both ends; then we pulled it through the hallway out the door...yes, it was a bit of a job! HEMI

you dould by a memory foam mattres, the DW bought one to put on her new electric bed, because she has arthritis real bad, it arrived in a box about a foot square, inside was the mattress in a plastic bag really compressed. She open the bag and unrolled the mattress to let it grow to full size, it took about 4 hrs. to get to the full 8 inches thick. What a comfortable mattress, she found it in Trailer Life mag. I forgot how much she paid for it but it was a lot cheaper than trying to buy one here local.

Hi, yes the memory foam mattress are great. I got mine from Mrs.Foam on eBay, they are irregulars, but a lot cheaper than anywhere else. Decide how much dense foam and how much memory foam you need, and they have them all.

Check into a sleep number bed. They come in pieces and inflate after you get it inside. You would need 110volt power to adjust it.

Thanks for the help. I guess I should have bought the inner spring when we ordered the Lance.

Suggest Knox Foam in Knoxville, TN. They have great prices on memory foam mattresses and will cut one to your particular size specs. We have a Tempurpedic memory foam mattress in the house and replaced the motorhome mattress with a Knox and it is excellent for a reasonable price. The mattress comes compressed in fairly small boxes....take it inside, unwrap, and it will expand over a few hours.

I tried a memory foam bed cover (3") and the misses and I found it to be very warm to sleep on as the foam does not breathe. I purchased the sleep number bed and it is great. No more back or shoulder pain! Anyone want to buy a vertually new queen bed?

Cheers

You can buy mattresses from lots of places. Probably even some in your own state. Murmaid Mattress is another mattress company that will custom make a mattress (good for the "short" RV mattresses).
