Light weight is a relative term. To some, 75 lbs is light weight, to others not so light. This one gets pretty good reviews:


I don't have personal experience with this particular one, but I've found memory foam, in general, to be far superior to any "stock" rv mattress. This one is 30.3 lbs for a 6" Queen.

Don't make the mistake my wife did. She ordered a 10" from Wal-Mart and it was very comfortable once you climbed mount Everest to get into it. We've since replaced that one with another memory foam and have no complaints. Over the years we've had 6 or so memory foam mattresses and only 1 that wasn't comfortable.

The only thing resembling comfort that's likely to weigh less is a select comfort, but I'm not a fan personally.

I just added this amazing gel-foam mattress to my lightweight TT. Wife and I slept on it 4 nights and loved it! (And I'm 6/2 and 370lbs)


43lbs and delivered all smushed down and rolled up, so putting it in camper was easy.. bring it in, then cut the plastic and it inflates!

Fit perfect in my 2014 Venture Sonic 190VRB

Take a look at Latex mattresses, not particularly light for their thickness, but very comfortable even when fairly thin

I just installed a Personal Comfort Queen airbed in our new Luxe Elite. been in business much longer than Sleep Number and only do sales via internet or phone. Much cheaper than comparable model Sleep Number. 25 year warranty. I got the A5 model since you can upgrade it with an extra 2 inch comfort layer. I bought the 2 inch gel foam topper at Walmart and put it in the extra 2 inch comfort layer. Superb!
