Newbie in Northwest Texas

We're new to RVing and to this forum. We're in Amarillo and have a small RV we bought new about 2 years ago. We've been out 3 times and have enjoyed everything except the factory-provided matress...

I fly radio-controlled sailplanes (gliders) and fly fish. I have 19 months before I retire and we're looking forward to hitting the road a little more often.

J & D in windy Amarillo...

Hi J & D, welcome to the forum. Change the mattress, a good night's sleep will thank you. We've enjoy our Sleep Number mattresses (in the coach and the coach). Others prefer the foam mattresses.

Welcome to the forum!

We replaced a queen-size mattress (almost new) in the house with a king. Guess where that good queen went? The original RV mattress went to Goodwill. Hey, it's better than sleeping on a sheet of cardboard!

Hello, welcome to IRV2. I bought a memory foam to go over the mattress and what a difference. Hope you can continue to enjoy your outings. Safe travels.

You might try a 2" or so mattress topper out of memory foam and see if that helps. Welcome to iRV2.
