View Full Version : Mattress is too hard!

07-28-2007, 09:01 PM
:mad: We just bought an 08 2900MK and I'm having back pain after sleeping on the hard mattress. I'm wondering if anyone else is having issues with their mattress and what you've done to resolve it? I'm thinking about putting one of those expensive latex foam toppers on the mattress in hopes that it will help.

we put a topper on ours and it made a great difference. Now nice to sleep on.

We went 1 step further and bought a whole new matress, a temperpedic style foam one from Coscto..now its really great to sleep on.

We bought a cheap memory foam mattress from Walmart. It is 8" thick, and it replaced the mattress. It was less than 400$ delivered. And it fit right into the camper. Our Bighorn has a kingsized bed.

I have a Memory foam topper that is incased in a quilted pillowtop that is on the queen bed in the Sundance 2900MK. Just enough softness for us. Just wondering what anyone has done for the terrible mattress in the sleeper sofa, a cut down to fit size memory foam topper hardly improves the sofa. Also can't find sheets to fit this 3/4 width sofa sleeper.

We have a 2900MK, the mattress was too hard as well, went to wal-mart and purchased a quilted mattress cover and sleeps much better now, as far as the sheet for the hide-a-bed, we purchased a set of king size cotton sheets, after they were washed they fit the hide-a-bed perfectly. I guess they knew we were buying for a 3/4 sofa bed and needed them to shrink. haha. Love our Sundance

We put on a memory foam topper from Wallmart and it works good and makes the sheets for the king bed fit better also..

We replaced our mattress with a memory foam mattress from Wally World last summer. $229 for a queen size.

We have one of the ultra lights. It is a 265rk XLT 28.5' and we love it, but we too replaced our mattress immediately.

We bought a queen (60x80) SpringAir mattress with a built in pillow top (10-1/2" high) and it is wonderful!

We bought the SpringAir because it is actually intended to be used without a box spring......sure does work for us..comfy:D

My mother in law has had 2 'new' trailers and says mattresses are notoriously bad in trailers. We ordered the dealer upgrade before the cyclone even left the factory, since I have already had back surgery! DH is on his way across N Dakota right now with the new rig and says the new mattress is worth every penny. we have a memory foam on the current mattress and it is OK but no support underneath causes back aches.

We went cheap, with a egg crate style from Wal-Mart. Worked great !!

We bought a 3" memory foam mattress topper. It is pure Sleep all nite.:)

Memory foam (about 3" thick) from Costco. We now sleep great while in the RV.

5" Extra Firm Foam ordered from JC Penney makes a better pillow top than the thin supposedly 'pillow' on the mattress we have. Covered the foam with a mattress pad - makes putting a deep pocket sheet on much easier and fits very well over foam top and mattress.

same problem also. I am going to price what Sams offers for about a 4" memory foam topper. Also Walmart carried them. Not too cheap for the good ones but it will beat aching back and hip joints.

You might also check out Smart Bargains. com (http://www.smartbargains.com). That is where we got ours and it was much less than other places we checked.

We bought our 3inch memory foam and pillow top mattress cover at Overstock.com also.

Has anyone tried the sleep number from Camping World ?

08-11-2010, 09:22 PM
I have to agree with everyone else who posted to get a new mattress. We always get a new one, I wish they would not even bother to put one in the new units. Our dealer had a way to donate it while it was new to a shelter.

08-11-2010, 10:56 PM
Added 4" memory foam to ours, makes it just right thickness for the sheets and sleeps better than our standard mattress at home. Bought from overstock.com. The denser they are the better they support.

With everyone running out and buying new toppers and new mattresses, ya wonder why Heartland doesn't put better mattresses in their rigs in the first place? Maybe because of the old saying "ya can't please everybody"...even with a nice mattress some would still change out. We ran out the next morning to WalMart to get a topper...which worked well...then when we got a sleep number in the house we (and I really mean DH) took our old mattress out to the BH. We're good...we sleep very well in the BH.

I actually like the matterss that came with the BC but Sam did not. We bought a 4" topper from Dave at the Nashville Rally and it has helped Sam alot.
As far as the sleep number bed, we have a king sleep number at home. We think it is a waste of money. We have had it for 3 years still cant find a number that offers full support for either of us.

Hard! Ours is like a box springs and not comfy at all. Talking with dealer but I can say this mattress is coming out. If the dealer can't help we will go buy a new one at Sams or Wally World.

This works great for us and the price was right.

We use a 4" memory foam from Sam's Club with a quilted mattress cover over it. It sleeps as good as our tempurpedic at home.

09-28-2010, 08:37 PM
We brought a 3 inch Memory foam and then got a goose down cover to put over it. It sleeps better then the one in the house. We have had it for 4 years now. We got ours from overstock.com too.

04-10-2011, 12:06 PM
The first thing that I did.... the day after I brought the new rig home, was to get rid of the cheap mattress and put in a good one.


04-25-2011, 03:39 PM
I wish I had that problem, me wife is telling me the mattress is too soft, we even paid for the better mattress. I'm going to go out and find a rock to sleep on and see if that is too soft. need help finding a HARD mattress.

05-02-2011, 03:01 PM
All sound like great options. We do offer an upgraded mattress as a Sundance option with the pillowtop filled with memory foam. It has become a very popular option.
Thank you!

I am all in favor of the manufacturer to supply a so so mattress and leave it to the new owner to choose a proper setup. No way everyone can be satisfied because we all need our own style. Because we spend 33% time laying in the bed I feel its our choice. But the manufacture should have layouts that uses standard mattresses. I had the modify the whole frame to fit ours when we changed mattress that fit the layout.

It is our intention to provide a standard size queen bed in every floor plan; however, it isn't always possible based on floor plan layout.
