Like a lot of things, mattress toppers are only opposed as a bad idea by people that have never used a good one.

Mine is on a Murphy bed, so it can move around a little Big deal. It is exceedingly comfortable.

OK thanks all for the info...

Looking for information on RV foam mattress toppers.
Do they need adjusted or re positioned every couple of days. Do the straps that hold the topper to the mattress keep it in place. Do you have the 2", 3", or 4" thickness. In your opinion do they work or are worthless and not worth the money.
I have the RV King mattress. I think they are an inch or 2 different than a standard King mattress.
Thoughts???


We have one on ours but it wasn't cutting the mustard so we ended up going to a local foam store, looked/felt various density and combos of foam and eventually had them build us a custom topper that actually worked (density we wanted & was cut to the exact dimensions of our bed). It wasn't cheap but not having the mrs be fussy after every night in the RV bed is/was $$ WELL spent.

Wife did have to fashion some straps to hold the waterproof mattress cover in place as the added height of things after the added foam was causing everything to 'top off' by morning.

A recommendation: Go to Bed Bath and Beyond. Buy the lowest-price one, bring it home and try it out. If it doesn't feel good enough, bring it back and return it (Yes - they will let you do that!) and buy the next most expensive one. Repeat if necessary. When I bought mine they had three price-points, and I ended up with the middle-priced one. Love it. Would never go without one now.

It's just Mrs. SpeakEasy and me now (empty-nesters). But we can choose from among 7 grandchildren to drag along with us!
