I tried the Denver mattress and hated it. Then I tried the Costco foam topper and ended up returning it. This is what I ended up with and loved it.

Very nice! One reason we found the topper as the best solution for us is the bottom of the bed flips-up to storage, and anything too thick prevents access to that storage (of extra pillows, bedding, and towels).

I have a 2 inch foam topper on mine and then a quilted mattress cover over the whole deal.
Its so comfortable.
I sleep better in the camper than I do at home.
Of course it could just be that I'm camping.

Our new Jayco Denver Mattress lasted about 30 nights and we felt we were sleeping on the plywood. Had to purchase a new mattress. Think Denver Mattress is making a mistake putting their name on a cheap foam mattress that most have to replace almost immediately. Wish Jayco would offer an upgrade when purchased new. They are missing out on a profit enhancement. Auto mfg make many more vehicles and offer a slew of upgrades which they make more $ on. As do home builders and a score of other industries. Jayco does a disservice to themselves and to their customers by forcing you to take inferior products.

We have a 2015 Jayco 33RLDS. Great camper so far except for Jayco's Exclusive Mattress. After one trip we bought a new mattress. Comfortable now....

Maybe ours has a more stuffing or something but we love ours. Slept on it 10 nights so far this spring and have zero complaints. The mattress itself isn't very thick and being on a piece of plywood makes it feel firm, which I like. I hope it holds up for more that 30 days though. Oh, I'm 6'4" and 240 lbs. and my wife is 5'2".

Now the dinette cushions for sitting at the table, that's a whole other topic.

We had a memory foam mattress topper (3", I think) left over from our Class-B. That has been on the trailer Denver mattress since day one. We've slept in the trailer only a few nights so far and the mattress is acceptable/tolerable but almost too hard.

The jury is still out if the Denver mattress will need to be replaced or not. Next month will be a longer trip and we will decide after that.

After about two to three weeks the mattress developed dips where our hips were. There was an actual hole you fell into. Was almost like sleeping on the plywood. Even after taking it out, you can see the two dips where we slept. Foam is just not firm enough to "bounce" back...why would Denver put there name on this piece of C**p, only hurts there name and reputation.

mattress is the first thing I changed. I had a $1700 queen in my guest room. Swapped them out. If you sleep over I hope you like a "firm" mattress.

We've slept on our Denver mattress about 5-6 nights so far. I was prepared to hate it but I love it, DH doesn't! Two people, two opinions! The same goes for this forum I'm sure. Old TT mattress DH loved it, I hated it!

Sounds like you've read my previous posts on this subject. I've been full-timing in my TT since the end of last July. After 10 months of sleeping on my Denver Mattress every night, I can honestly say "I love it"! As I've posted before, I bought a 3" memory foam topper from Target. I tried it on top of the mattress for a week, and didn't like the slow response time - especially the slow "spring-back" time. Read someone else's post on here about putting the topper underneath the mattress, so I gave that a try. What a difference! Since my Denver Mattress is not a pillow top, I added an old 1" corrugated foam rubber pad on top of the mattress. I then put a regular quilted mattress pad over the whole combo. That combination gives me a fabulous sleep . . . the best I've ever had. I did spin the mattress 180* in January, since it was starting to dip a little where I sleep. I'll flip it over in another couple of months - just like you would your mattress at home.

For those of you who've said you feel like you're sleeping on the plywood base, I ask you to consider putting the memory foam topper between the mattress and the plywood. That acts just like a box spring, and eliminates the response-time and temperature issues others have disliked about memory foam. It's worked for me every night for the past 10 months!

Funny, me and the DW just said the same thing most of you are. We have done about 30 nights on ours and no more. I even said to her, "we are sleeping on bare wood at this point". It developed the dips early on. It has not held up at all. I didn't figure it would but it is worse than the mattress in my old Cougar. She is only 120 lbs and her side almost looks like mine. We are new mattress shopping this weekend. Going to put a nice one in it this time!
