Mattress replacement

For those of you with a Greyhawk and the short queen mattress.

Have any of you replaced it and if so with what? I'm not interested in mattress toppers. Been there already.

Thanks

We replaced a mattress in a trailer a few years ago. We were lucky to have a mattress company in the area and they would build a mattress to any size. It got us away from the rv mattress supply companies and into a real mattress.

We will be replacing ours with a tempurpedic type. We have a tempurpedic at home and love it. The "upgraded" pillow top in our Jayco is garbage..

Ours got a little "lumpy" after a few years with two ruts. We added a 3 inch pillow top topper and it is like new again. I would be concerned about the weight of a dense foam mattress. We have one at home and my wife and I can not turn it.

It is very heavy.

Our king size tempur pedic at home is quite heavy. And most generic short queens I have looked at (amazon) do list the weight. The garbage mattress in our Jayco, while I dont know the weight, is quite heavy. The 10 inch foam is listed as 65 lbs so I dont think its that much more weight than the crap spring unit.

Well you folks have muddied the water for me! We like practically everyone else are looking to upgrade the mattress. We have "ruts" in ours too. albeit the rut on my side is much deeper than the DW. I recently convinced her to switch sides. Once she sleeps in the rut I created we may be upgrading sooner than planned. We had the tempurpedic in our sticks & brick and are not fans of it.

So we were thinking of adding the comfort topper but after reading comments here and elsewhere I'm not so sure. So next option is replacement and because of our dislike of the tempurpedic I wanted to steer clear of foam. then I read 33 doesn't like the crap spring unit so I don't know which option is best. I hate to invest and actually downgrade my situation. It sure would be nice if there was somewhere one could actually lay down on these mattresses and actually compare before purchase.

I replaced mine with a standard Queen Sleep number, the cheapest they had. They make one for an RV but I really didn't know what the difference was. I had to extend the base by a few inches, that was easily done with a piece of plywood. I lost a few inches around the foot of the bed, but gained it in matress lenght. Was an acceptable trade off, now my feet dont hang off the rounded corner of the matress.

You can lay on a Sleep Number bed in many mall stores.
