Mattress

We are thinking of getting a new mattress for our 2004 T.S. Select.
Anyone have a sleep number bed in theirs? Also thinking of a
Plushbed that is all foam. Anyone know how much they weigh?

You might want to try to do a search on sleep number bead. It's been discussed here a number of times even since I've been a member. The link below should get you started.

I've had a number of sleep number beds over the years and our coach came with one. Something about my old body just won't adapt to them and I went to a Beautyrest in the coach and stick house.

Did not like our sleep number bed. It was 7-8 years old which might have had something to do with it. Didn't like the hard edging on it, getting in and out of it. Friend recommended bedinabox.com. We bought a foam bed, as we have a Tempurpedic at home. When it was delivered, we took it inside the RV, THEN opened it up, as it had to uncurl and breathe for awhile. We've been very happy with it. Price was right too! Then sold the sleep number on craigslist.com later!

Thank goodness for options as we all have different tastes.

Being a retired mattress manufacturer the only thing I would have is latex.

We've enjoyed the sleep number in the coach for the 5 1/2 years that we have owned it. About two years ago we added a 3" foam topper from Bed, Bath & Beyond to it. It's a real toss-up now between the sleep number in the coach and the I-10 sleep number that we bought for the house when our old mattress needed replacing about 2 years ago. I won't go back to a regular mattress.

Most of what you read about mattresses is hype,same with prices.(Talay) latex matresses have been the premium matress for 60 years,no impressions,no flipping,and we had some last for 40 years.You can shop the latex and ask for talay latex and know your pricing the same thing.If you have a independent retail manufacturer near you it will uaually be a better price and the the only difference will be thickness.Talay indicates the quality of latex.You need to lay on any mattress for comfort before you buy.Google latex mattress for more imfo.

Being able to adjust the firmness on either side is the ultimate in marital bliss.

Bought my bounder used. It came with a new mattress. Sealy Sleep Firm. Made for the Fleetwood. (short queen).

On this mattress you will sleep like a rock.....on one that is. Firm is putting it mildly.

So....I bought a really good 4" memory foam topper. (kinda heavy)
Comfotable, but I did NOT like the way the foam keeps your shape while you sleep. Makes it difficult to roll over in the same spot, because you are sunk in.

So.....I added 2 of those 1" cheap egg crate toppers from wally world.

Now......I LOVE MY BED !!!!! !!!!!!!

I LOVE to go to BED !!!!!!

Downside: makes lifting the lid to store stuff a bit more heavy. I am considering adding 2 extra support shocks to assist me. After all....I ain't getting any younger.

Thanks greezykid, welcome to the site. The MH's mattress needs replacing and latex may be the way to go. Bob

Another story since our previous post. Stayed at a Holiday Inn recently, walked in the room and there were two queen sleep number beds. No instructions on how to use them, our RV controllers were wired to the unit, these were wireless. Took a while to rotate them and find out which bed they belonged too and how to point controller to get each side right. (Imagine having no experience at all with SN beds and being there.) Hubby settled on one bed, sort of diagonally as we have a California King at home he fits better; I and the Schnauzer settled on the other. Much rustling and clicking later, we got some sleep. Somewhere around 3 am, one side of hubby's bed collapsed. No amount of poking the controller fixed it. He straightened up and slept on what amounted to a narrow twin bed the rest of the night, occasionally rolling into the cavern. We surely couldn't have been the only people to have an experience like that in the hotel industry. We had to scoot out early, but did inform the hotel later about our experience -- have yet to hear back from them.
