I purchased a new travel trailer, and the mattress is like a brick. Therefore, we'll need a new mattress. Couple of questions please:

1. Are RV mattresses lighter than other mattresses? I prefer one that's light, especially since there's storage underneath.

2. What do you recommend for a mattress? Quality and comfort is everything. Can you provide a link?

3. I've read where many of the posters bought Memory Foam from Overstock.com. Do you have one of these? What brand is it? Is it comfortable? How much does it weigh?

Thank you for your input.

When we got a new matress for the house we made a deal on the same one for the trailer. Now ee sleep the same no matter what. Get what you have at home is my suggestion.

We have been VERY happy with Comfortaire ir Mattress. We have used them for about 20 years. The company has been great to deal with on those rare occasions when we have had ANY problem. We will not sleep on anything else. Dual chamber so when I turn or move, my wife doesn't feel any movement, and vice versa.

We just bought a 2" thick memory foam topper from Wal-Mart. Made a hugh difference. We liked it so much we now have one at home.

Select Comfort (or equivalent)can't be beat, but you pay for the quality. A foam topper is what I currently use on top of a way too firm mattress. It cost $100 at Costco and I like it as much as my $1500 mattress at home. Really.

We had one built to our specs at a local mattress factory, but many just add a memory foam topper or remove the stock mattress and use a full-sized memory foam mattress. This was our only issue on our maiden voyage and was the first mod we did on our rig.

I bought a 3" foam topper from overstock and it makes a world of difference. I went ahead and got the king size (it was the same price) and cut it with an electric knife. I used the excess to make a couple of foam pillows.
It does make the bed a little heavier to lift so I might add another lift mechanism.
