Don't do it!!

Have one in our coach. Top of the line Beaver with build sheet over $660k. Best of everything except the sleep number bed. Hate it. Keep rolling into the middle. Not even a consideration in my mind. Love everything on the coach except that.
Just my two cents.

Safe travels

Sleep number with 4" memory foam from WalMart on top. As comfortable as our previous pillow top. Dogs don't complain, nor does DW. She's at 55 and I'm at 80.

But what are your sleep numbers? Lol.

We just got new wireless / digital remotes and a new pump. Previously our analogs were so faded we have no idea what our #'s were. Looking forward to knowing. Kind of like - what's your sign... oh Capricorn. Cool.

If their TV ads are to be believed the $1300 sleep number mattress will solve all of the problems in our bedroom, and we will awaken as rejuvenated as a young couple on their honeymoon.

Being somewhat suspicious that this claim may contain an element of exaggeration, I was hoping someone who has had experience with this pricey pillow might offer some insights.
They Are Great! Have one in the S&B and have one in our DolphinLX. The best money we have ever spent on bedroom stuff. Now for a added opinion, do not waste your money on their foundations (boxsprings) and you'll save a bundle for sure. Good Luck and safe travels and restful nights.

Sleep Number and other mattresses

Mattresses are like ice cream, everybody has a different taste. But my back and hips absolutely detest sleeping on air mattresses which is what a sleep number is with some foam chunks thrown in. The sleep number is actually the first item that is ripped out of our RVs and replaced with a high quality memory foam mattress for us, our back and hips really thank us. But as you can others love them so the best thing is to try it out and return it if doesn't work for you.

Start here

The Mattress Underground :: Topics in General Mattresses (1/218)

IMO, the only mattress in the world worth a darn is pocketed microcoil, but that website there has a TON of research.

Further, it's not exactly needed that your RV mattress be advertised as an RV mattress.

Great companies like Texas Mattress Makers | Bed Sets | Best Mattress Store in Houston will custom make you anything, at any size, at any height, and do a darn good job at it! Foam, Gel, Coil, MicroCoil whatever you like.

Those weren't our ages...those were our sleep numbers, even with the 4" foam on top

Don't overlook the "Ideal Rest" air bed which is similar to Sleep Number. We had sleep number in our previous coach and now have an Ideal Rest in our Winnebago. Liked the sleep number fine but find the Ideal Rest to be more supportive given a different foam topper.

FWIW - some RV bed platforms are a bit less than stiff enough and can result in a slight deflection in the center when fully loaded causing some folks to roll towards the middle. In our last coach I fastened a 2"x2" support across the center of the bed platform on the underside, of course. This slight mod made a nice difference

cheers,
Joopy

Our coach came with a king sized Sleep Number and we've been happy with it. We both suffer from sinus problems and can tend to flip and flop on a bad night. As has been pointed out, this bed is really "two mattresses separated by some foam". Not only can we each set the mattress firmness we prefer, movement on one side does not transfer to the other.

If you're "rolling to the middle", I submit you need a higher "sleep number". You are NOT laying directly on the air mattress, there is a pillow top type cover. In fact, if you look at the bare mattress you'd think it was a conventional type.

One caveat. When travels take you to a higher or lower elevation the mattress will respond. It will get rock hard if going up in elevation and seemingly totally deflate when going down.

We have had Sleep Number beds in the house for 20 years and in every motorhome. DW loves them.

You are so correct on the elevation factor! If we head west over the mountains I deflate both sides to the lower settings.

How does this help your sinus problem? My wife has them bad.
