stored for winter
Well folks, we put the camper away until next year.  So, the plan is to save money this winter and come spring be able to finish it in one go.  We want to camp in it next summer.  I just recently found out that a friend of mine has an old Jayco pop-up that he wants to restore.  My wife chuckled that…

replacement mattress for a popup
« on: April 02, 2012, 08:59:06 PM »
Our used coleman utah is very nice but the mattresses are killing my back. The foam rubber mattress flattens out entirely. Anyone have any recommendations for a better replacement mattress?

When we had to replace the mattress in the old pup, we bought foam at a local upholstery place, making sure it was a density that would last. It was a bit too firm by itself, so we bought a 1" memory foam topper, which made it very comfortable. In the new Cobalt, the mattresses were also not so comfortable by themselves, so we added 2" memory foam to each one (we checked our heights to make sure we could use that much thickness, 1" was all we could use in the previous pup).
There are different types of replacement mattresses available. There have been various threads here: http://www.popupportal.com/index.php?board=79.0

The memory foam mattress(es) in our pup are just a bit too firm for my liking. So I'm going to try one of the 2" "egg crate" mattress toppers, something like this one:

I'll report back as to how it works after our next trip.
