24D mattress

6 months onto our 2019 Navion 24D. So far, love it. My only complaint would have to be the mattress on the Murphy bed. A little to board like for my taste. Anyone have any upgrade solution or ideas since this is not a standard queen short?

Add a topper?

Ask a sleep shop what they have that will fit?

Get a custom mattress replacement?

since the mattress is split near the pillows, will need to be custom I think. Topper can only be 2" thick max and still allow murhpy bed to go up

We have added a mattress topper, short queen fitted, off Amazon. The one piece cover is no problem for the Murphy bed folding.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000X1QR3K..._.ftlDb1ACZQ17

$59.00.

Just curious - saw you had a Tiffin Breeze in your signature. How did you like it?

It was very nice. We had if for four years. Was pleased with Tiffin’s after-service, even after the warranty expired, but I think Winnebago has better quality right off of production line. Ultimately the MaxxForce engine made me nervous, although we had no problems with it. The newer Breeze no longer has that engine, but has a little Cummins instead.

If we were Tiffin shopping, we think we’d opt for the Red. For now, however, we think our 24D is our last and best motorhome.

I also had a Tiffin we just traded for a 24D which we've ordered. I am curious about the split mattress - did you find that the bottom sheet and mattress cover stayed on okay when you folded/unfolded the Murphy bed? We were wondering about how to keep the bottom sheet on and if the mattress was too thin....

best,

Dave

We have the 18V24D as well and I find the real issue is the wooden slats of the Murphy. The mattress cover helps a lot as noted. It would take more than a little work but the real fix would be a more solid flat bottom in place of the wood slats, those things will get the ribs. Wife has no issue but I am heavier than she, oh yeah, maybe I should loose weight...


The longer you sleep on it the more accustomed you get to the pain and after a three or four week outing it becomes less noticeable. There is another system to replace the wooden slats but again - lots of effort involved there.


Just for grins, the Breeze had a wonderful bed, very comfortable for 5 years. Our reason for the trade was to get small again and to be rid of the engine issues with the MaxxForce 7. The new Breeze coming out will have an inline 6 cyl Cummins in lieu of the 5 cyl Cummins which is going away.

Thanks for the info Warren! I agree, the 24D is just right for the me and the wife at this point. Best part is she can drive it and feel comfortable. The 40ft DP was a different story...

The 2" gel topper did the trick for us. Night and day difference
