Howdy All,

 

My 2014 Voltage 3818 toy hauler came from the factory with a "Deluxe Memory Foam" mattress, all I can say is Dutchman's idea of what the word "Deluxe" means is way different then mine. Sleeping on this thing I wake up in the morning laying a 4-5 inch deep trench with a sore back and an attitude, not good in any way.

 

So those of you who have replaced the factory mattress can you offer any suggestions on "reasonably priced" queen size replacement mattresses, looking on the net I have seen prices that range from 300 dollars to well over 1,000 I find it hard to spend money on something I can't see and haven't had the chance to lay on for a while. So I am open to suggestions as to brand, type and what it cost, please include a link if you bought online, THANKS.

We went to a couple mattress stores and spent some time comparing different ones, huge variety of types as well as firmness levels so it took a while. Once we were ready to buy we discovered a gotcha, the prices they were showing were per piece, good only if you bought a mattress and box spring. Just buying a mattress was closer to 2/3 the price of the set than half. Even then they weren't too happy to sell us one they had in stock (breaking up a matched set) and wanted a couple weeks to fetch just a mattress from the factory.

 

Still putting up with the hassle of trying before buying is a really good idea. You might also try some of the inflatable versions, some folks find them worth the cost.

I've never understood how one would know which kind of mattress suits them best. I typically have aches and pains in the morning, including back, shoulder, and neck pain. However, I don't know if my mattress is too firm or too soft or my pillow is too short or too tall. My present mattress is firm, but I've had less firm ones in the past with the same results.

The issue of not knowing the too hard/too soft question is one of the advantages of Sleep Number. Turned out that my DH needs a very firm mattress to relieve his issues, while needed something fairly soft. We only figured that out by trial and error. It's pricey, but we've had ours in our S&B for over 10 years and will replace it only when we buy our full time 5er.

If you choose a air mattress, be careful as you travel in elevation. We have a select comfort and love it. We did ask carefully about issues with elevation changes as we travel. We were assured that there would be no problem. Well, we had one of the mattresses fail. They did cover it on a pro rated basis under warrenty. We would always fill the mattress in the morning to make it easy to make and look better. If you then go up in altitude, the pressure in the mattress will increase greatly. So lesson learned. Fill the mattress to make the bed, but if traveling above 8000 ft you might want to reduce the pressure while traveling.
