Memory foam is "sinky". It's kind of like you are on a bed of cushy mud in a way. Kind of funky to get use to, but very comfortable....
My advice is skip all that, and go with a good serta pillow top.
4 whopping cylinders on Toyota RV's. Talk about great getting good MPG. Also I have a very light foot on the pedal. I followed some MPG advice on Livingpress.com and I now get 22 MPG! Not bad for a home on wheels.
The sleep number in our new mh left in less than 6 weeks and was replaced with a memory foam. We have a king dual adjustable in the house. Yes they can be warm but the newer ones from bed-in-a-box have some special covers to help. We use a mattress pad and also use a small fan. We were glad to get the 6 100 dollar bills for the new sleep number bed. It paid for the bed in a box model. Our tempurpedic was 5 times the price and not better but it is adjustable.
Have to comment on some of the responses about memory foam. Like most things they have evolved. The new fast recovery foams along with layered construction have eliminated the complaints we're hearing here. I had a cheap one about four years ago and it was "sinky" and hot. The new ones are a whole different deal. The biggest downside is the good ones are very expensive.

At one time we looked in to getting one. But after a lot of Internet Searchs, we found Hundreds and Hundreds of Complaints. We actually saw more Bad Complaints than any good Reviews.
It also seems that they don't stand behind their products as they claim the do.
We agrea, the a "Good Poundage Memory Foam Pad" is much better. the Hihger the Poundage Count, the better the Memory Foam is.
What we have done to our RV Beds, and all of the Beds in our House, we have added "Extra Over-Stuffed Mattress Protedtor Pads", that makes it even more comfortable and enjoyable, and also makes for a Huge Differance also.
Some of our past RV Beds, we didn't even bother to change out the cheap OEM******ones. Just added the "Over-Stuffed Mattress Protector Pads, over the top of the Memory Foam Pad, and use at least a 4 lb Memory Foam Pad. Even the "Cheap Crappy OEM Beds" became very comfortable after that, and we sleep like babies.
Some RV'ers and Home Owners think using Memory Foam Pads, gets to hot in the Summer. Not so, if you use the "Over-Stuffed Mattresss Pads on top of the Memory Foam Pad..
Over the years, we have bought quite a few "Menory Foam Pads", on Sale at Overastock.Com. They seem to have the best prices if you catch them on sale. We have bought them for ourselfs, and as for gifts for other friends a well.
They clain that their beds are not much more than a standard bed costs, and that their beds last twice as long. We sure didn't find that a very true statement. When we looked at Cal-King Beds with their Platforms, it was more than 5 times what we paid for our Cal-King Bed, and that included the Mattress and the Box Springs and the Bed Frame, and a set of Sheets and a set of Pillow Shams, and a very nice, not cheap Comfortor.
After reading and reading all of those complaints on the internet, and just how many Unhappy Owners there were, we sure didn't want to become one of them.
"NO Thank You", we will just comtinue to keep our Cal-King Bed, and the other beds we have in our Home and continute to keep using a good Quality Memory Foam Pad, with a Good Quaility "Over-Stuffed Matresss Protector Pad", and contine to sleep like Babies. Good Luck. Happy Travels. Dan & Jill
I have a sleep number kind that I put in my 5'er back in January (I full time) and love it. I was visiting a friend last night and slept on a memory foam (don't know which one) and "sleep" isn't exactly what I did all night. I moved around, having to extract myself from the hole each time, all night trying to keep my back from hurting.
I know we are all different and thank goodness for that, but sleep number is the only way to go for me.
