Changing The Mattress

I want to change the crappy mattress in my 2017 White Hawk 28DSBH. Anyone exchange their mattress? What did you change it for?

I had an ok king size mattress in my 2018 5er but I changed it out for a queen size temperpedic. The length was the same but I had to trim the sides down to make it sit properly. It was a great modification since it's a better mattress and gave us more room on the sides of the bed.

Do a search here.. There have been numerous mattress discussions on this forum.
The general consensus is the same. Both the Denver and the Simmons mattresses provided by Jayco are complete junk! LOL!

At one point Jayco was giving refunds (credit) if the mattress failed to a spec they define. I forget what the exact criteria is to say the mattress failed. So many inches of sag in the middle I think. So if you're under warranty and you believe the mattress has failed, you may be able to get the cash ($150?) and put it towards a respectable mattress, rather than getting Jayco to replace it with another piece of junk.

Check out the 11" Brentwood Home memory gell mattresses on Amazon. They come in all sizes including RV sizes. We liked it so much, we got one for the house as our nightly sleeper.

+1 to running a search. This has been discussed quite frequently on the forum.

Personally, we started with a 4" memory foam topper on top of the crappy OEM Denver ($100 at Wally World) which worked great for about 3 years. Then when the underlying mattress began giving way, we replaced the whole works with a 10" Zinus foam mattress from Amazon (about $250 IIRC).

I love our Zinus, but DW thinks it's "too firm". I'll probably end up putting a 2" soft memory foam topper on it to make her happy, but I love it just the way it is.

Bought new Mattress

We sold our first camper with the mattress we had bought from Camping World. I called CW and had them look up our account. It had been manufactured by Parklane Parklane RV Mattresses
As camping world no longer sells Parklane mattress, I contacted Parklane dirctly, told her I was trying to find the same model that we had. We selected the one that we thought it would have been and ordered it. Delivery was quick and we are very happy with the mattress. We did with the first, and still do with the new mattress, add a 1" memory foam topper onto it as my husband needs it for shoulder injuries. Check them out.

I hear they will often cut you a check (about$ 150) rather than getting it replaced with the same junk. Take the money and run!

Funny, our '12 eagle came stock with a nice pillow top mattress and it's quite comfortable but the wife wanted a little more give so we added a 3'' memory foam topper and now it's perfect.

We bought a 3Ē thick memory foam topper. $89 shipped on Amazon. Complete difference and very happy.
