We are getting ready to change the mattress in the RV. The one that came with it is causing too many back aches. Do any of you ave tempurpedic or select comfort mattresses? Would you recommend either?

We simply covered our mattress with a Tempurpedic cover-works great(so comfortable, that when at our home base we still sleep in the coach)no need to change mattress!

We have already added a 1 1/2 inch foam topper without good results. The other thing we have thought of doing is buying 2 4" foam toppers and just removing the mattress.

Our's came with a Queen pillow top and we added a 4" Novafoam topper from Costco. Nice thing about Costco, if you don't like it you can return it. They also have a 12"¯ Novafoam 12"¯ mattress for around $700.

We replaced the factory mattress in our Ventana with one of the knockoff tempurpedics from Levitz. Queen size was $500. I have to admit that it took a little while to get used to it but now when it comes time to replace the one in the house, it will be one of those. Most comfortable thing I've ever slept on.

We have Temperpedic at home and replaced our coach's with a Dormia (Temperpedic knock-off) at $999 when the coach was new two years ago. 250 nights and 2 years later we decided it was not holding up and providing the same level of support our deluxe Temperpedic had provided at home for 5+ years.

So we changed to a new delux Temperpedic just like we have at home for about $2500 including tax and delivery. The great thing about it is that it feels just like the bed at home so when we're on the road we can not tell the difference. The better half has had severe rheumatoid arthritis for 30 years and she just needs a great bed. I like it because I sleep the same as I do at home, and the Temperpedic just holds up so well.

They cost more, especially for the delux (mid-level price point) version but they sleep wonderfully and do a fantastic job of keeping th engine heat from warming the bed too much on a hot day.

If life has taught me anything it's buy good shoes and good mattress.

If its a standard queen 80 x 60 just go to Mattress Discounter or Sleepys and buy the one you like just watch the height of the mattress when you install it and close the bedroom slide
There is close to a 75% mark up in mattress just keep low the price on mine was $1900 dollars I ended up paying 650 good luck you can have my newmar upgrade pillow top

We bit the bullet and ordered a Bear Bed today. Hopefully it will be all that we want and the backs will stop aching.

Not that it will make a difference to what you chose to buy...but Sacs and I got rid of the Select Number mattress that came with the coach and bought one of the NovaForm mattresses from Costco. We have the same in the "sticks & bricks" and love the mattress.
The mattress is heavier...(it is probably about 100 lbs) but well worth having it.

PS...We did sell the Select Number mattress to someone here on the forum and they love it
