We were out camping one weekend and drove past a mattress shop that had a sale on. Bought a standard length memory foam mattress for under $200 (IIRC) and shortened it with a bread knife on a picnic table in a CG. No idea of the brand. That was 7+ seasons and 3 TTs ago and it has been an excellent mattress and has provided some of the best sleeps compared to our fancy dancy megabuck memory foam mattress in the house. If I were buying it today, I would have extended the lid on the underbed storage an inch or two and cut the mattress longer.

One thing about the memory foam mattress is that it is heavier than an RV mattress. I had to relocate the mounting points for the gas shocks in our underbed storage so the lid would stay open.

The mattresses that come in RVs are torture devices... Memory foam toppers are a waste of money.

Some of them are, the cheap thinner ones. I have 3" of good quality MF ($250 10 years ago) over 4" of regular bed foam. It's amazingly comfortable and no dips or sags.

It depends what's under the MF topper too.

I bought a Zinus 10" memory foam mattress for my home a few years back. The wife and I were both pleased with it.
So naturally, when I bought a tt this summer that needed a new short queen, I ordered a Zinus 10" short queen from Amazon.
Slept on it 3 weekends thus summer and were very happy with it.

Memory foam mattress from Groupon.com

Best $400 ever spent. It’s better than my mattress at home that I paid $1800 for.

The mattress that came with our Coachmen was like sleeping on a pool table.

Our Coachmen Freelander came with a Serta. Very comfortable.

We purchased 4" memory foam topper from Costco for our home, loved to so much we did the same for our 5er.

Mattress replacement Update::

I gave the salesman that sold our RV to us and has been an avid RVer for years a call. He recommended "Mattress Maker of New England". It is located in Brockton Ma. about 20 miles from our home. I called them and was told to bring our old mattress in and they would match the dimensions. We went there last week and my wife was able to pick out just what she wanted for firmness and coverings. (I can sleep on a board, so as long as she is happy all is good). Anyway, I picked it up yesterday and of course it fit perfectly and my wife is satisfied. It is a 6" firm mattress with a 1 3/4" custom cover. 10 year warranty.
cost us $475.00.
As always, a great thread.. Thanks to all!
