Difference between Sleep Number bed RV models vs. Stick & Brick models

We are looking to purchase a Sleep Number King for our motorhome. As I shop around, I was wondering what the difference would be? Why not just buy were I find the best price?

P.S. I prefer your recommendations to the folks in the store trying to sell me a mattress.

Difference between Sleep Number bed RV models vs. Stick & Brick models

We had a sleep number brand that after 5 years had a leak and they shipped a new mattress free under their warranty / customer service. Don't know if they still do but it sold me because of that no question response. Not sure if that extra service was because it was a rv model or not
I assume if they are all functionality the same
Traded that coach in and new one has a Tempur-pedic mattress so no current experience .

The RV models aren't the same size as the regular models. They're slightly smaller. An RV King fits in our KGDB, but a normal king would not.

We have an RV King in the RV, a split King and a Queen in the S&B.

I just purchased a Comfortaire air bed. Comfortaire is the parent company of Sleep Number. Their beds are very similar except I do believe the Comfortaire is better quality as the reviews reflect this. They also have a 100 night try policy. The biggest difference between an RV airbed and a S&B bed is the Comfortaire mattress is 9 inches thick which helps since you already have the platform which is usually higher than a regular platform because it is made for storage beneath. The Comfortaire has a 20 year warranty. I got the regular RV queen not the short queen as my platform is for the 80X60 not 75X60.

Measurements are different. My current unit takes a normal king, my previous one took a normal queen. Not having to get an RV model will save money and give you a bigger mattress.

Measure to see how much room you have.

As others have said, size matters. If you have a "Short" bed, either queen or king you will need a "RV" size. "Shorts" are shorter in length, normally will be 74, 75, or 76 inches long rather then the standard 80 inches is length

The local sleep number sales people told us that the RV models used different materials to meet different flammability codes -- not sure about that.

I bought the sticks and bricks model.
Since ours uses a full queen there were no issues.
Have had it in the RV for two years now, and like it just as much as the house unit.

thx Dale
