    Im curious what you guys use for underneath the mattress for insulation. I see some people use reflectix but then some say it doesnt work. I have also seen gym mats but wanted to see what you guys use. Thank you!

    I've used reflectix in my last camper but my current camper has nice thick mattresses so I don't need anything. I found that with thinner mattresses the reflectix is basically reflecting your own body heat. With my thicker mattresses, the body heat isn't making it through, so no need for the reflectix.

    We used gym floor mats after the prior owner's eggshell foam wore out. The foam was a bit nicer, but the mats are better in humid environments.

    I use floor foam from Costco for soft foundation under new mattress, but not for warmth.
