Greg - It should work, just double check the size and make sure you have a power outlet. The sleep number beds use an air pump to adjust the firmness.

We have a sleep number and don't like it either. We even called the customer service and got a new foam insert. That didn't help either. We purchased a memory foam topper from Sams and it made a world of difference. We both sleep really good now. The toppers are around $100.00 and I expect to replace it every few years. The only good thing about the sleep number is the two separate air chambers keep you from feeling the other person moving around.

Had a sleep number in the s+b, with a 2 inch "egg crate" topper. Loved it. My rig came with a sleep number, but my butt would hit the platform beneath it getting in or out. So I put a 4 inch foam pad under it and my 2 inch on top. Now, I don't want get out bed in the morning!

greg-1 The bed measurement on your Essex is 72 by 80. A cal. king is 72 by 84 so as long as the bed you are getting is 72 by 80 you should be fine. This measurement for Essex isn't a common size so be careful to check your numbers. Tom 04 Essex

Totally agree. The home Sleep Number is a great bed for us. However the MH Sleep Number would easily bottom out and didn't come close to the sleeping comfort as our residential model. In fact, the MH unit was just plain uncomfortable. We now have the "Ideal Rest" bed in the newer Winnie and it's proved to be much, much superior to the Sleep Number bed. Actually, it's more rigid even on low air settings and the entire surface, edge to edge, feels more consistent in terms of rigidity and feel. The edges and center divider on the Sleep Number were quite noticeable and annoying. Air beds aren't for everyone but we like ours at home and now in the MH as well. We like the Ideal Rest bed.

cheers,
Joopy
