Jayco Bunkbed mattress

Camped in our new 32TSBH this weekend and found a very unhappy surprise. The mattresses on the bunkbed are terrible. Don't know why we didn't check this before buying. We had a Jayco 28bhs before this and the lower bunk was adequate, my son and daughter in law spelt on it many times and never complanied. They slept on bunks in new one and said they were terrible. Mattress is only 2" thick and feels like you are sleeping on the plywood. Now will have to invest in upgrade mattresses, more expense. Bought egg crate mattress pads at Walmart, but little improvement. Wonder why Jayco changed them? Any suggestions out there on what to go to?

We added in the egg-crate mattress pads to the bunk beds. However we only have a 7yr, 4yr, and 3yr old sleeping on them.

My wife bought a "Memory Foam" topper for the master bed, and boy did it make a HUGE difference. I Think the one she bought was only 1" think but it was a huge improvement.

We went with the 2 inch memory foam mattress topper (from amazon) for our queen bed in our TT. That's twice the huge improvement! Well worth the money spent! Only one minor drawback...it weighs 20 pounds, so makes it a bit harder to lift the bed to get into the storage compartment, and the hydraulic struts dont want to keep it up very well when lifted, so I am using a dowel as a temporary strut. Oh well!

Jayco Bunkbed mattress

Added 4" memory foam to the master bed. Had to install an extra gas strut to Compensate for the extra weight.

We added a 4" memory foam topper on the master bed. It made a world of difference. Instead of tossing and turning all night and getting up with sore ribs, I wake up well rested and ready to go. We also added 3" (I think) to the bunks for the kids. We have a 11 & 13 year old sleeping in them. They say it is much better now.

Thanks. I was considering adding the memory foam toppers, but unsure how much they would help. Sounds like it's the way to go.
