Sleep number are great. We have one at home and in our RV. Best bed we have slept on. Worth the price.

Check out this website. We have one and it is great and substantially less cost than sleep number. http://www.regin-inc.com/air-beds/ai...rio-design.htm

Thanks Corvette Man, We have looked at the sleep numbers also, but liked the pump inside the mattress on the bear beds. I saw them advertized in good sam's magazine, but wanted to hear from someone who had one.

Thanks Rainbow, I took a look, but they do not have the short queen size that we need.
Anybody else out there to help with info? Thanks again, HarveyP

We have had a king pillowtop Bearbed in our house for several years. We like it and have had no problems with it. There is no "number scale" on the pump so trial and error has to be used to set it just right. It replaced a pillow top waterbed and I believe an airbed is superior to a waterbed. The bearbed was much lower in cost than the select comfort bed. Again we have had no "quality issues" with the bearbed brand.

Thanks Two Bit ! I was hoping to hear from someone with experience. I guess we will keep the bearbed on the list to consider. Anyone else? Thanks, HarveyP

Your welcome.
Like I mentioned, our air bed is in our house. The only drawback I could think of having one in an RV would be if you were traveling and changing elevation from say near sea level to up in the mountains. The air bed would expand as elevation increased and would have to be reset at each night's stop. Without the "number readout" you would be guessing at your favorite pressure each time.

We went from a few hundred feet above sea level to over 5000 feet one day traveling in the RV. An unopened bag of potatoe chips burst open.

Maybe someone who has an airbed in their RV will comment on what they experience with elevation changes while traveling. Do they have to adjust it all the time? I seem to recall ours has a safety overpressure release so you cant pump it up too high with the pump, so bursting is probably not an issue, but readjusting after elevation change might be a hassel?

I'm the one that feels the other way about the Sleep Number bed that came in my new Journey. It is without a doubt the most uncomfortable bed that I've ever slept on. My bride agrees with me.

You can set each side to a differant pressure, and the person on the higher pressure side feels like they are going to roll off to the lower pressure side. I've been trying to get used to it at all pressure settings and can't find one that is comfortable. I find it causes my hip to ache by morning.

When we get home and sleep in our normal Serta mattress bed, we both sleep well. I'm getting to the point where I will remove the Sleep Number bed and put in a good quality standard mattress.

Oh and by the way, my back does not hurt in the morning, but it doesn't hurt any other time either.

Best Regards!

We have a king size adjustable air mattress in the coach, I don't know the brand off the top of my head, but yes, I have found that to get the best results, you have to fully inflate when you go to bed each night, then deflate to your comfort level. While traveling, the air pressure does change.

We love our sleep number beds, have one at home and one in our vacation home, as well as whatever make is in our coach. Good luck!

Brenda, of...

Currently, we use an Ozark Trail air mattress (from Wal-Mart's camping section) with a 4" memory foam mattress topper in our Class C. I also run a heated mattress pad (for winter) on top of the topper. The memory foam evens out the curves of the air mattress. As for altitude... we haven't encountered much... moved from about 200 ft to 2700 ft. Didn't see any thing there so I'm figuring that's not much. Our "system" is super comfy and is way cheaper than the "airbeds" and it works for us. But then we're frugal about some things.

Several years ago we had a Bearbed. As I remember it I liked it my wife didn't. But I don't remember ever having any bed she liked. We did have a heated mattress pad on it in cool weather. It held up ok and when we sold the RV it went with it. I did like the idea of the pump being inside. In the Rv we have now we have pillow top mattress, it's fine for me, but you know who doesn't care for it.
