PUP Mattresses

We purchased a new 2015 1007UD two weeks ago, but we won't be using our new PUP until next May. What have you done to make sleeping on the stock mattresses more comfortable?

got rid of them...... Seriously - tried the Costco Mattress topper, and not comfy... Tried a foam pad, not only on top but under the stock mattess - way too firm for a full night... Finally dumped the stock mattress and purchased an RV Queen from a mattress factory here in town... total $180 and just as comfortable as our home bed..

Thanks for the replies, my wife commented how firm the new mattresses were, I had never even laid down in the bunk before purchasing the PUP. I had thought all along that I'd lay out my sleeping bag on the mattress and sleep on it with a blanket, but thought I'd inquire in this community for suggestions.

A memory foam topper is something that we had thought to consider, I'm interested in reading more suggestions from this community.

With our first camping adventure behind us in our Jayco Jay Feather SLX16, I do have one complaint, and that's the foam pads for sleeping on. After about 2 hours of sleepin on my side, my hip was killing me! I can't sleep on my back (wife jabs at me because of my snoring). I'm subscribed to this thead to see what others are using to provide a wee bit more padding.

My wife and I are heading to Camping World on Monday, I look forward to seeing what they offer to make the bunks more comfortable. I will do a mattress replacement if that is the best solution, I am hoping to find something to place beneath the exists mattresses which might be a bit more affordable. Stay tuned!

I added 3-inch foam to mine. Works great unless you let the trailer freeze up without any heat in it. The memory foam becomes hard as a rock when it freezes up haha... Same with the memory foam pillows...

I'm guess about 5-inches is all the room one would have between the ceiling and the pushed in tent bed wood floor when the POPUP roof has been lowered. My original tent bed mattress and the three-inch foam pushes a tad against the popup ceiling when the roof has been lowered for travel mode.

If you purchased a six-inch thick mattress I really doubt you would be able to lower the roof and latch it down for travel. At least on my 2008 Starcraft RT14 popup trailer. Other may be different...

Are you sure its not comfortable as is? I have a 2008 1207 and find I get a better night sleep on the factory mattress than I get on my home bed.
