Uncomfortable Sofa Bed

The folding mattress in our RV's sofa bed is uncomfortable as heck. I bought a memory foam topper, but it was too thick and prevented me from folding up the bed. Any suggestions?

When you open the air valve the mattress can be flattened or rolled up to let the sofa fold. When pressure is released the air mattress will expand to give you a cushioned support and closing the air valve keeps that level of support

Our 'fix' was to replace the sofa bed. It wasn't that the sofa or bed were so uncomfortable (yes, there are better) but that the air mattress was cold sleeping on a cool night. The replacement Englander (LA-Z-Boy owned) has a conventional mattress and the usual sofa-sleeper cross bar that hits you in the middle of your back is gone

Our last MH had a hide a bed with a very uncomfortable mattress. We replaced it with this[]Air Dream Mattress - Sofa Sleeper Replacement Mattress[/B] Comes with an inflator and no lumps from bars to bother your sleep. Ours took just a minute to inflate and we had no trouble getting it back into the couch's frame...we left the sheets tucked in around the mattress to avoid any pinching' of the AirDream.

Never mind...I see it folds, not the Hide-A-Bed type.

As a big guy - I've learned to hate pullout beds. There's always a cross bar or support that ends up just killing ya before the night is over. We've got one of those sofa bed air mattresses with the little electric pump for inflating / deflating on the pullout in our coach. Surprisingly - it's pretty damn comfortable! Even for a big guy! If'n I was looking for a mattress for a pullout - that would be the route I took.

We remove, roll up and store the memory foam topper...before we fold up the bed.
