Jayco Mattresses

Just bought a Jay Flight sls 212qbw. Like everything fine, has everything my wife and I need in a small trailer.

The problem is, it has the worst mattress I've ever tried to sleep on. The label says "Simmons residential sleep system, made exclusively for Jayco."

We've camped in it for a total of 8 nights since we bought it about a month ago and its already got holes on both sides where we lay. My wife refuses to sleep on it so we're going to have to shop for a new mattress.

Has anyone else had this problem?

My wife and I just bought a 175rd and have quickly realized the mattress isn't great. Sometimes I enjoy sleeping on my side. The supplied 3" thick mattress just doesn't allow for that...

We sleep a total of one night on our new mattress and bought a memory foam topper the next day. Works great for us.

Seems that almost all manufacturers of RVs, or at least travel trailers, have a surplus of burlap bags and bails of hay... ... so they stuff the bags, sew them up and call them mattresses... ... Oddly, we sold a SOB trailer that actually had a decent mattress. With a 3" memory foam pad added, it slept better than our home setup. We thought that surely Jayco would use at least as good a mattress, but no. We ordered a Perfect Cloud from Amazon. Pricey, but now we can actually sleep in the camper. After 1 night, the factory mattress went to Goodwill. Your beds may be 74" (RV Queen) mattresses. Ours was a full 80" Queen so it was easy to replace.

Good luck!

Our old Jayco popup had a 4 inch foam mattress. Beat the heck out of our 195RB mattress.

We are looking at memory foam mattresses. Not made up our mind yet on which one

Not sure if the 195RB "mattress" actually qualifies as a mattress. We added a 3-inch Beautyrest Sculpted Gel Memory Foam topper along with a washable padded mattress cover and that fixed the issue for us. If you have trouble finding a good quality topper in the shorter "RV" Queen size just get a regular Queen size and trim a few inches off the bottom. A lot better selection to choose from then.

Many threads here regarding the mattresses Jayco provides. The general consensus is almost unanimous. They suck.

X2 on "They suck". The mattress that came in my Designer was so bad my niece's dogs would even get on it when I gave it to her. I ended up burning it and it didn't even burn well.

I have a Sleep Number RV Radius King now and it is great. Just short of 7 years full time.
