We had a sleep number in our last MH and I thought it was the best thing since pms pills. Our new one came with a pillow top mattress and we both really like it better than the SN.

It doesn't help with the sinus problem, it only helps keep the one suffering from disturbing their partner as they flip and flop.

We had the sleep number in our MH and hated it, always felt like an air mattress even tried the memory foam topper.

We had a tempurpedic in the SB and loved it, we went with a tempur in the MH that is a combo, has air chambers and memory foam. It has separate chambers and controls for your head & feet and lumbar area. which is great if you are a little heavy in the middle like me.

We chose the combo because it was lighter in weight than the full tempur which was easier to lift for the under bed storage.

Love the bed! as others said lower it if you are going up in elevation.

6 back surgeries and I have tried a lot of different ones and I wouldn't have anything else besides a sleep number.

Forget sleep number. I'll just take a good comfy mattress.

We forgot to zero the air ( deflate ) before climbing over mountain passes a couple of times and guess what....big bubble on wife's side. But my side is still good....No seriously, we threw it in the big green dumpster at the last Rv park we stayed in. Don't buy one if you change elevations often. 50 at sea level is 100 at 4000 ft !!!

It's a soft-sided one as well so it just sat right on top of the platform for the old mattress. This mattress is a dream (got the waveless model) and I sleep at least as comfortable as I do in the S&B waterbed.

Do the mountains in Arkansas and Tennessee affect the sleep number?

Yes the mountains do as we go from VA to Tennessee a couple of times a year. I usually deflate both sides to 20 or so before leaving. I spoke to the Sleep number folks and they said there isn't a risk of it popping. Just inconvenience.

Sleepnumber makes several different models, we chose one that is six models up from the basic sleepnumber model. It costs a little more but we both love it. We both like a mattress that stays cool. Two years and our kingsize is doing great with us being fulltime.

That would be more than the entire contents of the bed

Coach is plugged in all the time so the heater keeps it warm. Got a spot south of Tampa starting Dec 1st so it should be good for the winter (there till end of April).
