Anybody got a super sweet mattress out there? How about some shower improvements for water pressure and such?

It is no different now than when we started with a pup tent 45 years ago.
Time not working; doing whatever may come to mind, without sincere forethought. Now forevermore, but just as valuable as it was in the begining.

We dumped the sleep number and got a great Beauty Rest mattress. I added a pressure tank to minimize the water pump cycling and water pulsating when not on city water with good pressure. Not super sweet but both do the job.

Just bought a fireplace for mine. Haven't installed it yet. A good shower with plenty of hot water is a necessity. A goodly supply of Maker's Mark and/or Knob Creek to help sooth the creeky joints and sore muscles.

Memory foam to replace the sleep number mattress is #2 on my list of must haves. GOOD A/C with a QD Onan to power it is ALWAYS #1

A nice afternoon nap in a soft bed and cool bedroom gives me the energy and mental clarity to make 500 mile days when I have to. (I had to do Seattle to NY in 8 days by myself due to a medical emergency, and could not have done it without those amenities)

Residential pillow top mattress! Got tired of feeling the plywood through the skinny mattress supplied with the RV!

Satellite internet. Works everywhere. Since we are mostly out west we use it all the time. Many many many places we go there is no cell service. Last weekend for example. And we were 15 miles from a town of 120,000.

Got rid of the 20 yr old mattress and foam topper and got a pillow top. Had a pillow top in the S&B a couple of yrs ago and so glad we now have one in the RV.
The previous owners had taken out the bar and stools and put in a large desk. We took the desk out and put in a fireplace. Would not be without the fireplace. It almost heats the coach by itself.
Now if I can just get Thom to agree to taking out the washer/dryer and adding in storage and changing out the very tiny RV fridge for a residential one ......

Tower floor fan, portable induction cooktop, and all roof fans are now FanTastic. A lot of air moving around is a good thing ...

And hardwood floors .... no more carpet.

Replaced the foam RV mattress with a real innerspring mattress, and topped it with an LL Bean featherbed. As good as the bed in the house -- just ask the cats who keep taking it over!

Love my Euro recliner while watching HD TV from my satellite. When I'm ready for bed, a nice hot shower with the Oxygenics shower head and then off to bed on our pillow top 12" deep Serta mattress (tossed the OEM one).

My last comfort creature that I just added.....opening the door to my new residential refer and actually feeling cold air coming out, rather than worrying about closing the door before the old one lost all of it's cold air.
