    Looking for advise on upgrading the beds on my 2010 Crossroads Sunset Trail HTT. Replacement beds? New foam? Toppers? This old back is crying for some relief

    My son and daughter in law bought a replacement mattress for their HTT. They have to store the mattress on the couch when the trailer is closed, but they said it made a HUGE difference. I think he said they paid about $250 for the new mattress.

    We went for air mattresses. Place a foam topper on them to even the thing out and it's been a good deal for us. We are able to fill them to our liking, soft for my DW and firm for me.

    We had foam factory make us an extension for our hybrid's front bed. They're a great company and easy to order from. We're really happy with what we got from them.

    We choose to go with air beds from our tenting days no added weight or size inflates quick never compresses down like foam mattress always comfortable kind of like our sleep number at home

    Has anyone tried any of the IKEA mattresses? If so, what are your experiences? I ditched the cigarette smoke-soaked mattress that came with the 1989 Coleman Colorado I just bought. Of course the size is irregular but I'm crafty-ish. As a woman of a certain age, I'm concerned about heavily perspiring with foam and not sure if topper will be enough. I'm just starting research and was prompted by discussions here. **Also trying to be economical. This will be my first season on my own with a pup. I'm verrrry excited! Thanks in advance for any and all thoughts and suggestions. Also, I'm in Canada.

    You can see what I recommended above and if you're concerned about the foam, get a waterproof mattress pad/cover. We kept one on our pup mattresses all the time just in case there was a leak.

    Thanks for the quick response Steveo4090 I did see your link and read the thread, which inspired me to reach out. Unfortunately, a 10" mattress is too thick to fold into the tenting (need 3-4" and will do the Kleenex box test in the spring). That mattress also weighs nearly as much as me to be moving it around. And nope, I'm not worried about leaks, I'm tougher than that, LOL! I'm more concerned about drowning in my own perspiration from non-breathable foam or others like that. Mattress materials are always changing and I know that Ikea can be sensitive to these things -- in case anyone has experience with their mattresses? The whole non-breathable sleeping surface is also why I'm hesitant to use an air mattress again, (after years of tenting with one) even though I always used a cotton comforter to buffer direct contact. In the chill of autumn weather, air mattresses also lose volume, read "bottoming out and sore hips". I'm planning on autumn camping again in northeastern Ontario, Sault Ste Marie, Sudbury, North Bay, etc., but.... I may use an air mattress to start the season. Thanks Everyone!

    No problem. Air mattresses are about the least insulative thing you can sleep on too.

    I spent a night on one in a tent when we had unexpected frost overnight. Way colder than it was supposed to be and my wife and I about froze even with all our warm clothes on. We should have let the air out and slept directly on the ground lol.
