Good day Fellow RVer’s
I know this subject has been discussed and gone over before, but I want to further the information on this subject. Sooner or later we are faced with the decision of replacing the cheap or worn mattress in our rigs. Some people recommend Tempurpedic, others Sleep Number, and the rest a National Brand such as Seeley is discussed. Although these inputs are useful for a selection, the problem with this is each person has different needs as to their “comfort level” for a mattress. The mattress industry purposely intends to keep customers in the dark and use heavy Madison Ave. tatics use of TV and radio ads to persuade the public to buy their product. Furthermore, mattress people are trained to “make the sale” with little or no knowledge of the construction or materials used in them.
Recently, the DW came across a blog that she reads about full timers – DV Dreams. The OP’s in this article was faced with the same dilemma of replacing their mattress in their rigs:
RV-Dreams Journal: Searching For An RV Mattress - (Surprise, AZ)
The OP in this blog talks about a Web Site (The Mattress Undergound) that will INFORM the potential customer on the materials and process used in the making of a quality mattress:
This web site has an abundance of very useful information so that the buyer becomes “armed” with the information necessary to get the best buy/performance for their particular needs. It is an extensive read, but well worth it, avoiding costly mistakes when replacing your Rig’s mattress.
