Hi reitrof, sorry for the delayed reply - I can finally give a fairly thorough review of the mattress - one of the benefits of living out west is year round camping. We just got home from a week at the Pt. Mugu Naval Base RV park - right on the beach. My father-in-law is a retired Marine so he got us a couple of spots to ring in the new year. Now bearing in mind that our trailer is a 2013 and so it didn't come with Jayco's much-hyped Denver Mattress, ours is 100% better than the stock piece of junk that came with the rig. I'm so glad we made this purchase.
A tip - it does come rolled up in plastic, which exploded when I got about half way through it. I mean it went BOOM! Luckily I had the mattress in the rig and on the plywood base already before opening it. Heed that advise.
Another tip - the mattress had a funny smell. Not really off-putting, but you definitely notice it. The paperwork also says you should let it sit for 24 hours before using it. I opened it a week before we set out, and didn't put sheets on it until it was time to go. The smell was all but gone, and it had plenty of time to puff up before the trip.
All in all it was a very good purchase, one that I don't regret at all. I'm sure there are better mattresses out there; I've heard very good things about Sleep Number, but the cost is way more than I could justify for a weekend warrior. Besides, if I were going to get a Sleep Number, I'd have one at home before I got one in the trailer!
