Mattress Issue

the mattress in our Jayfeather 28W slides all over the wooden base it sits on. The bedspread slips off the end every night too. How can we keep these things from happening? Any of you done anything creative that might limit my morning frustrations? Thanks

Hi LuvsGolden and welcome to the Jayco Owners Forum!

We experience the opposite with our mattress as it fits so tight between the "end tables" on our model tt that it's hard to move it by myself to put on the fitted bottom sheet. Is your mattress thin? Ours is pretty thick, so it stays put. Also, (sorry, I know this may sound like a silly question) but did you remove the plastic from around (or under) the mattress? Without endtables to keep the mattress in place, the plastic wrap could provide a slick surface so the mattress would slip.

As for the bedspread, we stow ours and use a comfortor instead. It stays put better than the bedspread that the tt came with.

Hmmm, here's another thought, lotsa folks get those 1-2" toppers for their mattress. They are pretty heavy, so maybe that would help it stay in place?

healti - thank you for your response. Yes, we did remove the plastic; I think the mattress is an average thickness - neither thin nor thick. Like your tt, we also have the side "end tables" . Our mattress wants to slide north/south not east/west. I did order a memory foam topper for it and have since read another solution on a different website. That solution was to take the gripper shelf liner and put it down on the wood base, then set the mattress on top of that. Maybe that will work. Thanks for your suggestions and polite reply.

If the gripper shelf liner does not work you can all way's try super glue.

Let us know how the gripper shelf liner goes.... it may help someone else in the future

Instead of shelf liner, you might look for a similar product that is intended to keep small scatter rugs in place. It's a little thicker and less likely to roll. You shouldn't have to cover the whole surface, maybe a couple strips about 2-feet wide head and toe.

As I was reading, my first thought was the shelf liner as well.... but StefKath's solution makes more sense. Our mattress is a bit of an odd shape as well (a bit shorter) so sheets are always bunching up....Anna will eventually use her handy-dandy sewing machine and shorten the sheets with a seam to keep the fitted-sheets in place.

I have to say I really love them rubberized shelf-liners... however I did cut some leftover berber carpeting from a construction site to fit in all the basement storage compartments....

outstanding suggestions! We're camping again in a few weeks, so I'll let you all know which (if any) solutions solved the problem. Thanks a bunch!
