Sleep Number bed

I had to pull the trigger and get a different mattress. I have been getting a sore back the last few times we go out and I am sure the bed is causing this.

I have a Sleep Number bed ordered and should arrive in a week or so. It will be installed in a Precept 35UN coach. I believe I will glue a short nap carpet on the wooden base in the coach before laying the new bed down.

Do any of you have experience with a Sleep Number bed. What do you think about the base?

Thanks

mowdoc

I can't say anything about the mattress but when we had a pop-up we glued an indoor-outdoor rug to the bunk ends. It was pretty flat and it was perfect. I think we got it at Lowes or Home Depot in the "roll that they cut for your measurement" department. It was not expensive.

We made the move to Sleep Number this season. It is a huge improvement. I used to get pretty uncomfortable after several nights sleeping on the stock mattress. Now the only place I get sore is where my wife hits me when I play with the settings. :-)

I had an old foam pad that I put on the wood base just because I had it. I don't think it was really necessary.

We have a king in our fifth wheel. Love it. It sits right on the bare plywood. with no problem. I have been thinking of painting the base just for aesthetics and to make it smoother.

For those of you who don't want to spend the money to replace the mattress just yet, consider getting a 3 or 4" memory foam topper. I can't believe the difference that made for our comfort. I sleep so well in there now. Can't wait to go out again in a couple of weeks!!

I replaced my OEM mattress (if you can really call it a mattress) with the Sleep Number RV Radius King a little over 5 years ago. It is the best purchase I have ever made for a mattress.

Thanks for all the input. I have a memory foam topper on our bed since day one but still get sore back. It worked great in the fifth wheel we had before but does not help this Precept mattress at all. I'm excited to get the Sleep Number even more after reading the replies!!

I couldn't justify spending Sleep Number money in the camper, but we love the i8 (I think that's what I have) in the house.

We've had a Sleep Number in the last 3 campers. We also go to Wal-Mart and grab the 3" Memory foam topper with the foam on 1 side and the cones on the other. With all of this together I can sleep nicely in the camper.
As far as placement, we have ours just on the ply wood.

What Ed said....

We did the same a few years ago and have not regretted it one bit.
