We have 3 memory foam mattresses - one in the house, 1 in the 5er, and 1 in the MH - wouldn't have anything else - I've had 2 lower back surgeries, could NOT get a good night's sleep on a conventional, good quality mattress - but do GREAT with the foam. Learned quickly that you need at least 4 inches thick for best results.

One sorta side issue I might comment on - the foam SLEEPS well - but is totally resistant to "bounce" or similar motion - so. if you plan any mattress activities involving "bounce" or motion for best effect....

Memory foam is too hot for us to sleep comfortably. Sleep number, the only way to go. You spend too many hours in bed each day for that not to be a comfortable spot for you, so what ever it takes is worth it.

Memory Foam Topper

Bought our memory foam topper from WalMart. It's a 4" topper. Our mattress in the fifth was a firm non-specific brand mattress. Our house mattress is a dual air mattress. We sleep great in either place. To avoid the 'hot' factor, I use a pillow top type mattress cover. Seems to work well. The whole package for the fifth cost about $100. kkd
