Mattress

Hi all. We have sleep number mattress in our MH. We have a storage place under bed. The bed is raised with help of two pistons.
If I change the mattress with therapeutic mattress would it be too Harvey for the pistons to work?
Also will that be too heavy for the coach?

Unless you changed them, the lifts were sized for a "standard" mattress, not the lightweight Sleep Number. You may be fine but if not, it's perfectly OK to replace them with heavier ones!

We replaced the original mattress with a Sleep Number and had to replace the struts with lighter ones!

Thanks. Will Theraputic mattress be too heavy for RV?

The only way to know for sure about the weight is to weigh the RV when it is loaded ready for travel and then you can tell if you have the capacity to change it for a heavier one.

Hopefully you're not close enough to being overloaded that a mattress would matter!

As for the bed frame itself, you might need to put reinforcements under the platform to keep it from sagging. Read the thread below and look at my solution in post #26.

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Thanks. I did read the thread. I have capacity for more weight; however, I am concern about the frame and the lift being able to support the weight.
Do you know what is the difference in weight between sleep number, and theraputic mattresses.

You could probably find the weights of each on their web site.
