Question RV Mattress Suggestion!

The mattress that came stock with our motorhome is not very comfortable. It's too firm so that I can not sleep well on it. Anyone suggest me with a great value mattress short queen? Look forward to your replies and a comfortable night sleep!

I have bought two mattresses from Amazon, one a short queen the other a queen. Memory foam for around $250.

Sometimes, just a memory foam mattress topper does the job.

Those factory mattresses are rough. On our last two RVs, we just purchased a 3-4" mattress topper from Costco which can be cut to size easily and toss that on the factory mattress. You'll be surprised how much better it is, and you don't have to spend the money on a new mattress. Plus, you can still access the storage under the bed if you have it. With a residential mattress, it won't bend and allow the lid to come up. The topper will.

I would recommend the 2" natural latex topper from the company below. It is 100% pure latex, no additives to smell or make you sick! They will cut it to your specifications. They give a 100 day full refund satisfaction warranty! You'll think you are on a high-priced mattress!

We put a memory foam topper on ours, made a big difference.

If you are lucky and have a std RV Short queen there are a lot of options, our Hurricane had a Thor King that was special for Thor. We went to a local mattress company "Custom Comfort" and bought a custom for $750. We no longer have trouble sleeping.

A mattress topper would be a great solution. Actually, I bought one mattress topper from Costco 2 years ago for my bedroom. We got a new mattress that turned out to be too hard for my wife back. We first tried a soft latex topper that turned out to be too soft (we should have ordered a firmer one). Because we wanted one that didn't off-gas harmful chemicals, we were happy to see this one offered on Costco as we have had such good luck with the quality of Costco's products. It has turned out to be perfect. The cover keeps it in place as it tucks under mattress. Unlike a lot of people, we like memory foam as it is warm in our cold bedroom unlike the latex one. But for my RV, I am still looking for a good replacement for the factory mattress.

My friend suggested me to go for Classic Brands Cool Gel. He already researched for 6 months to buy a suitable mattress for his camper. Finally he decided to buy that one on Amazon after reading some detailed reviews about best RV mattress short queen size on the Internet (https://outdoorfact.com/best-RV-mattress-short-queen). He is very satisfied with this mattress since there is very limited motion transfer when his wife moves in the night. He even replaced his old $2000 mattress on his bed with one of these. So I am quite convinced with this product.

I have had expensive topper's on the bed......work better.....last summer I broke down and ordered a Air Bed From https://www.personalcomfortbed.com/n...ssic-series/a2
and to complete the Air Bed at home and now in the Coach, ordered a set of "My Pillow's"........simply the best ever night's sleep I have ever had! Worth every penny....
I look forward to going to bed!!!!
I am at the point in my life where money spent on sleep is without a doubt Priceless! and wish I had spent the money earlier in my life......

Same here our 6" mattress that came with our RV was terrible. Bought a 3" Gel Foam topper at Aldi's for $120 and what an incredible difference! Probably saved me from going the high dollar mattress replacement route. Make sure if you go the foam topper route it is Cool Gel Foam. Otherwise the regular foam toppers and mattresses are hot.
