Thread: Cheap Mattress!

    Cheap Mattress!

    We just returned from the Anchor Down get together and had a wonderful time! This was only our second outing in our new Reflection TT. After only 11 nights we have determined that our king pillow top "black label" mattress is unacceptable! Our mattress already has two large permanent indention's where we lay. I have a bad back and a good "quality" mattress is very important. I believe that GD has found one of many places to cut cost without a lot of complaints. I know that other manufacturers do the same thing. My previous Jayco had a very cheap mattress, which I promptly replaced. At Anchor Down, I was told by another Reflection TT owner that replacing the mattress was one of the first things that he had done. I will be replacing my "black label" pillow top mattress with a "memory foam" mattress before we take our next trip. If anyone would like a "almost new" king mattress, come see me and you can have it!

    I've bought 2 memory foam mattresses @ BedInABag.com, a large mail order operation out of Johnson City. Service, quality and prices are great.

    We bought a Beautyrest 3" memory foam topper for our GD supplied "pillow top" mattress, and we put a top quality mattress pad/cover on top of that. It sleeps just great.

    Sleep Comfort and Tempurpedic require bedding dealers to make quite an investment, and purchasing one a seriously major investment.

    I have a buddy with a mattress store, and you wouldn't believe what the mark up on high line bedding is.

    My wife is perfectly satisfied with a gel style memory foam mattress that's mounted on a Leggett and Platt adjustable bed--with "Magic Fingers." It's simply heavenly.

    seems if you pay 20k on a camper or 75k on a camper, you get a crummy mattress. not the end of the world. I would rather pick out what I sleep on instead of the manufacturer guessing on what I may like.

    Everyone has different wants and needs in a mattress. What's good for one is not necessarily good for another.

    The whole industry commonly puts sub-par bedding into their campers--as they cannot judge mattresses. And it's a big cost saver, too.

    Seems like all I get done is bite the bullet! I just bit it again and purchased a Serta I-Cool memory foam. We sleep on a Tempur Pedic at home but all that they make is a 76" wide, not a 72" in a RV king. So now we will be cool and comfortable. Put one of these in our previous Jayco and liked it. I wish that the manufactures would just let you order your trailer "less mattress" and give you a credit, then you could put that towards a quality mattress of your liking.

    When we bought our 27RL, we took the new mattress out of the 27RL and swapped it for the mattress in our old fiver which I had bought a few years back. Dealer was happy as they had a pre-owned fiver with a new mattress. We were happy as we had mattress we have enjoyed from our old fiver.

    Yeah that would have been nice. We however sold our last trailer and we also went from a "short queen" to a "king." so wouldn't have worked on either account. Now we have another "almost new" mattress to give away or dispose of. Last time to my surprise, Goodwill no longer accepts mattress's. No matter how new. I guess they are afraid of "bed bugs!"

    Replacing the mattress is a priority for the hubby but I want to wait until next year since we only have a little over a month of camping season left.
