Uncomfortable bed

We love our Wolf Pup. The north/south bed is ideal,but out older bones are having issues sleeping in it. We've tried pool noodles, bought a mattress in a box, and recently took out guest room mattress to task. We still are having issues. Now, we're discussing temperpedic, and even recliners. Has anyone out there has a similar problem? What worked? Dave

Love our Tempurpedic. You don't need to buy any fancy bed support. A sheet of plywood will work fine. I managed to modify a bed frame that raises the feet and head. It vibrates too but that part is really useless.

We grabbed one of these last fall:

Zinus short queen.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Awesome mattress and is probably better than our old temperpedic mattress in the house.

At $200 shipped it's pretty hard to beat.

My new to me mattress is closed cell foam about two inches thick.



I do not know if it is what is now called “memory foam”. But I have used that kind of mattress for years camping on the ground in summer and winter.



In the camper it is great.

x2 on the Zinus! I got mine for 150 bucks on Amazon, RV Queen. My friend had one in his house and highly recommended it. Amazing bed! Amazing price!

You might look into installing one of these Froli bed systems, https://www.nickleatlantic.com/products1.html,. Winnebago has gone to using them to improve the comfort of theur platform beds.

Our motorhome came with a Sleep Number bed. We like so much we bought one for the house too.

I highly recommend the 100% natural latex mattress toppers from Sleep on Latex! They'll make that old mattress feel like a million dollars!

A topper might work for us but we have always favored a latex mattress but they can cost a million dollars. Our king at home was $3,000. We had the same mfg quote one for the coach in an RV King...72" x 75"...was $2,000. Our first latex was for a boat and in the mid 90"s it was $700. Our next boat got one too for $900. Both were queens. I may have to bite the bullet because the stock mattress we have is terrible and my back hurts.

Our TT came with a horrible, thin mattress. After our first night, we bought a 2" topper. Then an egg crate and another 3" topper.
On another thread, someone suggested putting the mattress on TOP of the toppers!
Radical, but we tried it last week when we took it out for the first time.
It worked!
Probably going to get a better mattress to go in the TT eventually, but for right now, it works.
