What dividing wood are you speaking of? I've had sleep numbers in both motor homes and then bought one for the stick house...King size in all. The divider should be a piece of foam, not wood. If you have a piece of wood I would call Sleep Number and talk to them and see if they would ship you the foam.

We had one in the house and soon learned to hate it.....We eventually bought an 18" pillowtop for the house and later bought a 12" pillowtop for the RV. We sleep like logs in either one.

I like it, my wife...not so much. She finds that since we use different settings she tends to roll.
My only thoughts on the down side is that going over the mountains...which we do a lot out here in the West, I must remember to drop the air pressure before the days drive. I have never experienced a "blow-out" but once having forgotten to drop the pressure the bed was rather bulging when we stopped for the evening.
It came with my MH, in the future we probably would not order one.

I've had a Select Comfort since 1994 before they called them "sleep number" beds. I LOVE mine and gave the brand new rv mattress to Goodwill and put mine in the MH.

But, I share mine with an 8# monkey and it only has 1 air bladder. Like waterbeds, you adjust for the weight and size of the sleeper. If you count 2 big dogs and one gets up, you have a comfort problem. Unless you have a king, I can't imagine the dual bladders working well -- too small an air bladder. BTW, it's HIGHLY unlikely that anything short of a sharp knife could ever cause a tear or rupture. They are VERY durable fabric covered rubberized something. And they are far from being similar to a simple air mattress. The bladder is constructed with I-beam like baffles inside that keeps the mattress flat and waveless.

No, I don't own stock in the company, but I do have a discount coming for recommending one to my brother and SIL. They LOVE theirs, a king, too.

Hated ours. I believe it was a $1400 option.
Sold ours the first month and got enough to pay cash for Bed-in-a-box tempurpedic clone. We have a real tempurpedic in the house and like it. We love the one in the MH now. We bought one for our daughter and she loves hers. Our neighbor bought one and yep, they love it too. Take America's Most Comfortable and Affordable Mattress On The Go In Your Camper, RV, or Boat

Thanks to all for your input. It certainly appears that "beauty is in the eye of the beholder". We went to a Sleep Number store yesterday and tried the equivalent of CW's premier king. It felt very comfortable for the short time we were on it. Since we need a radius cut king and only CW has it at a pretty stiff price and a "no-return policy" for bedding, we're going to sleep on it (pun intended) before taking the plunge. We'll see what our feelings are after our upcoming month-long trip on the original-plus-topper mattress.

Thanks again for all your honest opinions.

We both LOVE it. Regular queen size in our MH and not an rv version. Ours does not have a wood divider but a foam divider. Keeps the same number and has never needed adjusting once we found our numbers. Would never consider anything else.

When we purchased our previous coach in 2007, it had a sleep number, and I always thought those were ridiculous. 2 months after purchasing the motorhome, we liked the bed so much we bought one for our home. There's no ridge in between the two; we did, however, purchase a live foam topper for both beds. Having said how much I like it, our current motorhome has a Serta mattress, not sleep number, and with the live foam topper we're more than comfortable.

A note regarding king-sized beds in RV's . . . if you're used to a California King, RV kings are regular king-sized beds, which means they are a little wider and a little shorter. Important to know when you purchase bedding!

My wife has said beds to hard; beds to soft with the beds we have at home; sleepnumber bed in motorhome solved that problem; she pumps it up then lets the air out; up down up down, but she quite saying beds to hard, beds to soft.

We also found the bed in our motorhome to be uncomfortable. Instead of buying a sleep number bed, we decided to try the memory foam option first. We bought a 3 inch memory foam topper and put it on our bed. We both sleep great in the motor home. That was 4 years ago and the memory foam is still holding up. It might be worth a try. A topper is available at Sam's Club for only $139.

You might see if a local upholstry shop would modify the corner for you at a much lower cost. I modified my own by cutting a chunk of the firm edge foam out. Or, as soft as the corner on these mattresses are, you can even put the standard square cut in and just avoid sitting on the corner. I'm really not sure why the corner is rounded. The door to the bathroom would not be restricted and the space gain is minimal.

PS if you travel to a considerably different altitude you'll find that the bed needs to be adjusted. It gets firmer higher up.

Speaking of higher altitude, if you change altitude (go through passes etc.) while driving, you should set the bed (both sides) to a low setting so that it doesn't over inflate while driving . . .

We have two twins, my brother has a king and two twins & my son has a king. We all love them,they are in our houses not out MHs. Don't know if they are made different for MHs or not. IMO they are for what they are very over priced. We bought ours because my DW and I like hard mattress. We both have ours on 85 setting.
