While visiting Camping World in Hammond, LA some two weeks ago, a sign caught my eye. It was the shelf with the Denver Mattress. I was surprised to see the mattress was folded in about three and placed in a box on the shelf.

My question: How can a great mattress be folded up in multiple folds, and placed in a box..???

The sewn in tag said Michiana Mattress, however the large corner tag at the foot of the mattress was the signature Denver Mattress Co. emblem....kinda deceiving from a consumer standpoint....

Jayco even "sells" the Denver Mattress brand in all of their literature and online...not sure they should continue this practice...kinda gives all parties involved a black eye and just seems deceptive.

If it's anything like the standard issue Denver Mattress that came with our new Jayco it's nothing more than a few layers of fluff filling, not even a true mattress. We did order a really good quality memory foam from Amazon and it shipped to the house in a box. It was vacuum sealed and compressed extremely small and within a few hours filled out to normal size and works great. I put the link in a post a page or two back on this thread. I would stay away from Denver Mattress completely. Spend the money and buy a good one...your back will thank you and it'll make your trip more enjoyable.

We upgraded to a eurotop mattress when we bought our trailer. After a few nights we added a two inch topper from Costco but even at that I was waking up with a sore back. Two months ago prior to going away for a extended holiday I added another two inch topper from Costco. That was the answer. I had read that someone had placed one topper under his mattress and another one on top and found he had a great sleep. We decided to just place the second on top of the first and it turned out really good.

Has anyone tried this?

http://www.amazon.com/Serenia-Sleep-...9PQK1QAXFCK19M

We are to the boards and have only slept on it 6 nights. Deep valleys where we sleep!

Just bought the trailer I don't want to go 700 bucks! But I can't sleep!

Okay, I'm an old critter that is over weight. The Denver Mattress did very unpleasant things to my spine such that I could hardly walk or move the next day. My DW bought a Serenia from Amazon. Now, We both sleep better while I function well at a new "normal". Note, The mattress isn't perfect but It's the best money I ever spent. Given the improvement in my activity, I bought this same mattress (different size) for my bed at home. Go for it.

I know you will prefer the Serenia Mattress. Because of my arthritis, no mattress is comfortable for me. But I do love the Serenia. I looked at it as an investment in my health. Good Luck and pls give feedback.

It looks like "Denver Mattress" is a Lippert Controls brand.
If you look at this page you'll see all the things Lippert makes for the RV industry - it's probably about 1/2 your RV.
Recreational Vehicle
If you back up to the Lippert Components the leading OEM and Aftermarket RV Parts and Accessory Supplier page you'll find they make stuff for the Trucking industry, marine industry, home construction and much more.

There is no way this company makes all this stuff themselves. I bet them make a lot of the metal stuff (hitches, slideouts, etc.) and also the electronics (slideout controllers) since electronics appears to be where they started.

But most of this stuff is simply contract manufacturing.
Lippert has a great relationship with the RV industry - and when they see a need (like for a cheap mattress) - they go find a manufacturer, have it made and fill the need.
I don't doubt that they change their contract manufacturers as needed to cut cost or resolve objections from their customers (who is Jayco - not us).
Sounds like someone just left the original manufacturer's label's on the mattress Roosevelt.
But I don't think using contract manufacturers is deceptive - hell most of the stuff in your TV is made by a contract manufacturer working for Ford/Chevy/Dodge. In fact its frequently the same company - aka the airbag disaster from Tennaka.

That said - I'm glad to see that Jayco is using a real brand name mattress in many of their 2017 units - Simmons.
