Ric, how long is your bed? Kings come in a variety of dimensions. If yours does not go under the overhung closet furniture then you should be able to use anything you want. Probably wouldn't have to deflate at all.

The Sleep Numbers have a semi rigid foam edge that the bags sit in. This might keep them from spreading out at the foot. We're going to a SleepNumber store to look at their product to see how pliable the edges are as deflating might let use squeeze under the closet. If we can't use the Sleep Number I am considering rebuilding the bed box to accommodate the 66 1/2 x 75 King or a Queen size depending on more detailed measurements.

I think a lot of folks who don't spend a month or more at a time in their RV don't understand the issue. Ours is good for about 2 weeks before you fall into the hole.

WaltW.
Just measured it and it is 72" wide and 80" long. The sliding door closet but up against it. We are going to chance on a round corner sleep number 72x80 Sleep Number. Camping World has a great price and we will order to pick up at a store if we can. If not, we will order for delivery at our Winter Address.

I'm not familiar with your rig but wanted to ask if there is any way to lower the bed a couple inches?
I have a sleep number and IMO it will be hard to get it to compress unless you let a lot of air out and then you would have to push down on it to compress the end as it went under the obstruction. It is nothing like the old air mattress as stated by another poster the bags are surrounded with foam all around and in the middle. Ask them about the model without the topper. It is not as thick. Also there is another company that makes them that are not as thick. A lot of trouble IMO.

Look at Adjustable Beds, Bed pillows, Bed sheets | Comfortaire It's the same company.


On my rig it would be a weekend project if I needed more clearance.

norty1, if you have the Sleep Number RV mattress there is no rigid foam around the edges as there is on their residential Sleep Number mattresses. After my last post I went to the local Sleep Number store and that's what they told me. The RV is like their C2 model but without the rigid foam. So I also ordered one from CW as it was $800 cheaper. CW is carrying another inflatable mattress brand that does have the firm foam around the edges. Looking at the CW options led me to believe construction was the same….NOT.

No to lowering the bed. It's as low as it will go with the slide mechanism under it. The bed is also too low as is to be comfortable getting out of the bed. The Sleep Number will raise the height when inflated. I have 20 years of warranty to wear out the motor.

The one you buy at CW is made for them. I understood that it was not available from the Retail store. I will look up and post the model we have with dimensions. It's outside in the camper.

norty1,

How long have you had your sleep number bed? And I'm thinking you are satisfied with it?

About 6 months. We love it.
I wish we had another in the house.

Norty!,

Thanks for the reply. We ordered one from Camping World, yesterday. They've got a good sale going that ends Monday. Get an order placed and it will be honored with a rain check if they run out. That's a good deal!

Mattress Rave!!

Save yourself a $100.00 and assemble it yourself. It's easy and you learn a lot about it. I had to drill one hole for a power cord and also one small slot on the bed board for the air hose to come up at the head end. The inflation unit is underneath. We velcroed the remote above the headboard.
Our original mattress was not radius cut so we went with the standard corner.
Our new one weighs less than the old one.

Oh absolutely! Holes drilled in our rig is almost always done by me. Moving south, we were running in to how to get the Sleep Number bed at the CW price. Melody at the Calera, Alabama CW, which is between Birmingham and Montgomery, made it happen.
