Anyone replaced their stock mattress?

The mattress that came with my travel trailer is barely decent. My wife sleeps on it all the time and sometimes I sleep on the couch (more comfortable). Has anyone replaced their with a marine or RV speciality mattress or a home model? Which did you choose and where did you get it from?

We replaces our with a regular queen size mattress. I don't remember the brand. MUCH BETTER!

I replaced mine with a Sleep Number RV King. Sleep Number makes RV versions that have radius corners if your RV needs this. When I bought mine Camping World was the only outlet for the RV King where the regular Sleep Number stores handled the Queen size.

I full time so the cost wasn't an issue for me and I absolutely detest mattress toppers, especially memory foam.

In researching what to buy at the time, I found a local mattress manufacturer that would make one for me even with the radius corners at the foot, but it weighed over 90 pounds. I was also looking at reducing the weight in the front of my 5'er, so the Sleep Number won out. I never regretted it and would buy a Sleep Number again. Another vote for the Sleep Number is you assemble it on site. Meaning you take the individual pieces into your bedroom and put them all together. Very easy vs trying to wrestle a king size mattress into a tight RV bedroom.

We put a 4" memory foam topper on ours, got it at Wally World for just over a bill. For the money it suits our needs very well. That Denver Mattress euro-top "upgraded" mattress is a waste of time and money. Would love to put a residential queen, but don't have the space...

We put a 4 1/2 memory foam topper on our pillow top rv mattress, we sleep better at the camper than we do at home on our sleep number bed

Well its real more complicated than that...
Took the memory foam from the house put moved to the TT then put a new one with the "cool gel" in the house
BTW cool gel does nothing IMO--LOL needed to try
