Picking up x213 tomorrow!

Hello All! I have enjoyed reading all of the helpful tips and advice on this board. We are brand new to TTs, so we have learned a lot already, with a lot more to learn, I am sure! So, thank you in advance.

After months of research and shopping, we are picking up a new x213 tomorrow and are very excited. I just have a couple of questions, that I haven't been able to find answers for yet...

On the beds, specifically the King slide in the x213, do the majority of you put memory foam toppers on top of the 'mattress', or sleep on it as is? If so, what thickness works best, 2" or 3"? My husband is concerned about the weight these dense pads might add, but I want comfort! And for bedding, the size of this King seems to be odd, not the same size as 'RV King'. So, what are you using? Do you use regular sheets and make them work, or do I need to invest in a custom sized sheet set?

We are looking forward to a great summer, building lots of fun family memories in our new TT. Happy first day of Spring!

Thank you!

First congratulations on your new TT. As for mattress topper, it is really a personal thing. Ours has a layer of memory foam built right into the mattress. I find it a bit hard, when I first lay on it, but It is probably the best sleep I get all year. Is it because we are camping or do I find it that comfortable?? I also find our mattress quite cold, so I place a fleece blanket on top of the mattress before making the bed. Personally I would sleep on it a few times before deciding.

Bes of luck, and happy travels

Mine is due at the dealer next week - picking it up in April !!!! I can't wait either.

As to the bed, a memory foam topper is definitely a must have for us. I'm interested to hear what thickness works as well, though I will say I'm going for the higher density 4 pound variety.

Congrats, you'll love it! I can't wait to get mine it up to camp.

We put a 3" topper on it, had to cut one side as the size is not standard but it was easy...

If I had to do it again i'd probable replace the cheesy foam with a 6" foam mattress. but the topper is just fine. must be the fresh air!

We sold the standard mattress on craigslist and replaced it with an original model Tempurpedic. We are not lucky enough to have a King Size, ours is a Queen. The standard Queen mattress is larger than the RV Queen, but the memory foam squeezed enough to fit in the space. I love it.

Thank you all! Riverbum, I see we are neighbors, maybe we'll catch you out and about! What about the sheets, do you make regular sheets work, have special sized ones, or...?

Congrats on your new TT...you are going to love it..we have had ours for 2 years now and we bought king size bedding with a fitted sheet....however i am going to add a 2" mattress topper, I find ours a little uncomfortable and that addition 2" will make work of difference. We plan on doing the Oregon Coast eventually. If you are ever in our neck of the woods...we have some great provincial parks, 2 of them have hydro hook ups
