Sleep Number or Memory Foam

I am in need of a new bed. Our coach has an articulating bed so I need a memory foam or I was thinking of a Sleep Number. I'm 6'3" 240 lbs so my current bed has lost its memory! The memory foam is comfortable but I can't deal with the "canyon" anymore. Is there a memory foam bed that will not have that issue? I am not opposed to spending the money on a S/N if I had to.

Sleep Number or Memory Foam

With your weight you will want a high ild rating for your mattress otherwise you will compress the foam too much and fall into the canyon. Mattresses are not a one-fit-all. I would go to a mattress store or large furniture store and lay on several for a few minutes.

I am not a fan of S/N.

Memory foam requires you flip the mattress often. If not the mattress will develop "holes"

Should you decide on a sleep number or any other type of air mattress, remember to relieve the air pressure before making big changes in elevation. Most won’t stand the strain of going over a mountain pass.

As for which is better, only you can judge that.

What do you have at home (unless you are full time)? I have a SN at home, and put a SN in the MH so that it is consistent.



I've never had good luck with memory foam mattresses. They are great at the beginning, but when they really 'remember' and create the canyon, not so much.

Thanks for the replies! We fulltime so no bed at the house. I miss my pillow top mattress we used to have but we cant use a normal mattress. I've been to a S/N store and liked how they felt. I volunteer at a campground in Denver and am aware of the elevation issue after someone rolled in with a popped S/N!

We've been using sleep number beds for years in house, boats and now RV.
If you go that route get their less expensive mattress, not the pillow top, and then buy a good memory foam topper to put on it. The SN pillow top eventually get's flat and becomes less comfortable. Having a memory foam topper on it would allow you to easily buy a new topper if/when that becomes an issue.

Great tip thanks!

We are replacing our mattress with a natural latex mattress. We had one for 10 years in S&B and loved it. Sadly, was talked into a MF mattress a couple of years ago. Going back to latex.

We have the same here, best part is each person gets the feel that they like with the sleep number.

Next question. Is there a difference between the S/N stores bed verses Camping World bed? Thought I read somewhere the inflation tubes are not in the same position.

When we bought the one for our coach from camping world because they have RV sizes, it was easier and they were having a great deal. We didn’t look at a SN store.
