DW bought some memory foam, cut pieces to the proper size for both our bed and loveseat bed, enclosed them in duvet covers, and they are very comfy as mattress toppers.

Other improvements made almost immediately after purchase were replacement of the ridiculously cheap swivel rockers and bathroom faucet and shower head. Also had to deal with leaking shower enclosure. I'm sure we'll find other things to upgrade, but they will be less pressing in nature.

Cheers,
Greg

Its not even the comfort of the mattress sucking. Its the movement transfer of a spring mattress as well. With the foam you don't feel your better half moving around and vise versa. I wont ever have a spring mattress in my TT or house ever again. Its like a VCR, dead technology..

I went to the local furniture store and bought a standard queen mattress that was comfortable and put it in my camper. It takes away from the space to get around it in the bedroom but still enough to get around. Just like sleeping at home.
I've had to deal with a leaking shower also. Did you get yours to stop? The best results I could get was to use plumbers putty - not pretty.

Fulltimer parents just replaced a 2014 factory mattress with a ComfortAire one. Basically a Sleep number but $500 cheaper. Dad did a lot of research. Both mattresses are manufactured at the same factory. Just put the Sleep Number name on it and add $500 cash to it. They've been on it for a couple weeks now. Mom stated that Dad now sleeps in bed all night instead of going down to the couch to sleep after 2 hours in bed like he did with the old mattress. When we upgrade TT's it will be on our required option list, even if it is dealer installed.

You said you did away with the swivel rockers" what did you replace them with? We have the J steel couch (jack knife couch ) We want to remove it and get a couple of recliners to replace it. If you got a recliner can you tell me what kind.

We were limited on choices because our floor plan. Chairs had to be no more than 28" wide. May have been 29". We looked quite a lot in a short period, and as luck would have it, found some really nice leather LaZboy recliners rockers that coordinate nicely with our decor. They were a bit pricy, but we're prone to getting what we want in a case like this.

As far as the shower leak, it was the clear gasket that fits around the faux glass panels. Just wasn't doing the job. Water seeped out and into the bedroom and into a gap next to the vanity. I bought some caulk that dries clear, used plenty of it, and it took care of the issue. Can hardly see the caulk after it dried.

Cheers, Greg

We just received a queen short 10" memory foam mattres from Walmart.com. Installed it and did a test nap on it. It is fantastic, as comfortable as the Tempurpedic in our home.

DH changed the bathroom sink faucet to a toggle handle that aimed the water better.
DW changed the shower nozzle to Oxygenics ... better spray and water usage.

I suffered through the original mattress in my Designer for a year of full time use. Looking back I can't believe I used it that long. I now have an RV King (with rounded foot corners just like the original one) Sleep Number mattress. This was the best investment I have ever made. But then I full time so a good mattress is very important. I can't stand memory foam so that was not an option for the original one.

I tried to give the original mattress to a niece for her dogs to sleep on. They ignored it too so I burned it.

That's really saying a lot for the quality of these RV mattresses you get when you buy a new unit! LOL
