Any recommendations on a new queen?

Any idea what it takes to get Jayco to pay for at least part of a new mattress? And how to go about getting it to them?

I would like to at least get something to help pay for the new mattress.

I complained to my salesman by email that the mattress was lumpy after a few uses. He responded back a few days later that Jayco would replace it or send me $200 and I can buy what I want, I took the $200.

We put our old residential queen mattress from the house in the camper. Best move we have made my feet no longer hang off the end.

We have been sleeping on the Brentwood Gel Memory Foam for a couple years and love it. We're going to replace our bed at home with the same very soon.

Residential queen mattress is the best way to go. We went top of the line and is the same mattress we sleep on in our stick built house. All you need is the mattress not box spring. It is heavy but the shocks on the storage under bed handle's it just fine and keeps it up while we lift to go under bed.

After Jayco sent me a $200 replacement check I went to a local furniture store to mattress shop. I found a clearance on Sealey iComfort memory foam similar to what I have at home in a Queen size, retail was about 3k and I got it for $500. Since it was a queen and my RV mattress is a full xl I removed the cover and made some cut lines with a sharpie at attacked it with an electric knife which made a nice smooth cut. Bought a new full xl cover and now I sleep great on a nice comfy mattress just like home.

We have a Sleep Number with a memory foam topper from Wal-mart. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Authentic...opper/35176382
The best nights sleep I've had. We've taken this with us when we upgraded campers. I sleep better at the camper than I do at home and we have a regular Sleep Number at home without the topper.

This is the one we bought last month:


Price was right, but availability on Amazon was spotty. I watched it closely and snatched it up as soon as it became available. We picked up the 10" in "Short (RV) Queen" and the fit is perfect.

We recently returned from a 12-day RV Road trip. The mattress is a little firmer than I would like, but still quite comfortable (this is really a nit-pick on this mattress). It doesn't "suck" you in like some foam mattresses are known to do, which is quite nice. I fully expect it to soften up some (hopefully not much) as it is used.

I held out for the 10" (the 8" was more regularly available), and I'm not totally convinced I would do that again. I think especially for lighter folks (we're pretty heavy) an 8" would likely be fine. But because of our size, I felt more comfortable going with the 10"
