I bought a new 2020 Grand Design Solitude and the mattress is with out a doubt the worst ever. It is a Michiana Evergreen 72x80, so called RV King. After a few weeks it has 2 depressions where we sleep. I first thought a topper might help, but after a couple more weeks, I knew it never would.
If these depressions were in your back yard, it would look like 2 bodies are buried there.
I want to buy a new mattress but have no clue what is a good brand, RV King 72x80 so you can't buy them just anywhere. I don't want to buy the same thing only under a different name.
Anyone else had the same problem & what did you buy.

Lots of ways to buy an RV Mattress online. We bought one from mattress insider. Their customer service was the best. Got their top of the line memory foam mattress but it was too soft, donated it to a local charity and got their latex mattress. Much more firm. Lots of people talk about memory foam or adding a topper, but to me that just makes them too soft. I need firmness due to my aging back. My point, any reputable company will offer a sleep guarantee and money back so look for that in your search.

Hands down the best mattress we have ever used at home or on the RV is made by Verlo.com. If you want the 2nd best mattress read the other responses.
BTW did you get a good deal on the price of the RV?

Are you sure it’s 80? I’ve seen RV Kings at 75. https://www.sleepdogmattress.com/products/bigdawg-mattress

Thanks for the reply's.
My mattress size is 72x80. Verlo & Sleep Dog does not make a 72x80.
Not sure why the RV industry has so many different sizes of mattresses. They must make the rig, then have someone like Michiana make a cheap mattress to fit.
Mattress Insider does make a 72x80, so thanks for your post Thermoguy. I want the same type firm mattress you talk about & not necessarily the top of the line. My back is aging as well. Insider makes 3 different mattresses in the 72x80 size.
Sedona their entry level & 5.5 inches thick
Aspen with 6" or 8" or 10" thick
Scarsdale Luxury with 9" thick
Do you recall what thickness you got. I'm going to get one & am somewhat gun shy and trying to eliminate the step of returning it or taking it to a local charity for a refund.
Thanks for your help....

We bought a mattress from Brooklyn RV Bedding and we absolutely LOVE IT!!! It sleeps as good if not better than our expensive Tempur-Pedic at home.

The one I purchased is the 8 1/2" Latex Mattress.

Using the camper this weekend, great night sleep last night.

The wife and I just picked up a new Brody Euro Top 11” mattress with separate pocket coils in a short queen size. She picked it out, as I could almost sleep on plywood. We haven’t slept on it yet, but it felt comfy for the few minutes I laid on it at the store. I hadn’t removed the bedding when I erroneously measured it at 72” long, but it is in fact 75”. Here is a chart for anyone searching this in the future.

My wife is complaining about the original 60x80 Denver Mattress that came with our Open Range. She put a topper on it when new, and I've been fine with it. We haven't bought a conventional mattress ever I think. We had traditional waterbeds for almost 40 years and after I had heart surgery 5 years ago, I couldn't climb in and out of it, so we bought an expensive Sleep Number (personally I think are overrated).
We stopped at Verlo a couple days ago. We will have to special order because of the radiused corners at the foot end. These new ones are several inches thicker and I'm sure heavier. I'm guessing I'll have to replace the struts for the under bed storage with stronger ones.

We were camping in Nashville and since there’s a camping world next door we went to get a new mattress and some how left with a new 5er. It comes with a new mattress!
