Products that enhanced our slumber experience in our 5th wheel


We have a 2016 Heartland 5th Wheel - Big country. It sleeps "6". There's a king size bed in our bedroom, and the two beds that come out of the couches in the living room area. As many of you may have already discovered in your own campers, we get our best sleep in the camper. For the king size bed and the two fold out beds, we purchased the following:

Serta SoothingCool 3-inch Gel Memory Foam Mattress Topper

While we keep the one on the king size bed (and the factory mattress) there, we keep the two full/queen size toppers for the fold out beds under our king size bed in the storage box.

Every visitor we've had to rest there have complimented how comfortable the bed was (it could have been because they were expecting worse in a camper, but I doubt that).

We also bought the following because we have visitors of all ages, some who have known to have accidents overnight:

Allerease Waterproof Allergy Protection Mattress Protector and Pillow Protectors

I have dust and environmental allergies, so the pillow protector is a plus.

We had a cheap foam topper on the OEM king mattress but replaced it with a thick TempurPedic foam topper this spring. Very comfortable. As for the sofa bed in living room, we removed the mattress from it. We had someone sleep on it some years back and decided that it took up too much room and was a major inconvenience to have anyone sleeping there.

FWIW... We replaced the bedroom mattress with a 6" memory foam short queen and put the original mattress on the top bunk in the garage. We took the thin pad that was on the top bunk and use it on the bottom (over the seats) when we need the sleeping room. When we let the seats up for the table, it stores on the top bunk.
