New Mattress

Our Freedom Elite is only 1 month old but we have already spent 14 nights in it. We are loving our new "digs" but not so much the mattress. Both hubby and I wake up with backaches. So..... we ordered a new mattress from Amazon. We were concerned about buying one online and especially since it was so reasonably priced but OMG! Best modification so far.

The more RV makers try to break our backs the more smart people will apply ingenuity to overcome them!

Thanks for the info.

I'm not a fan of the memory foam but am having a heck-uv-a time finding a 6 inch old fashioned good quality COIL mattress. Any ideas. We've got a Freedom Elite, also, and not happy with the standard mattress.

Our Freedom Elite matress is horrible. We tried the pillow top and not much help but them put on 4" of memory foam and now its great.

Not sure how true it is but was told once anything over 3" of memory foam is a waste because your weight never goes that deep.

We ordered the same mattress for our Class "C" and I totally agree with you. Best money I've spent yet. No more hitting bottom and sore back in the morning. Loads of fun getting it into the correct spot and right side up.
Now just need to dispose of the OEM mattress.

Thank you! I ordered mine yesterday. We had Select Comfort in our 5th wheel, but would have to get twins anew for Smidge. Here's hoping the "cool" part works, said she of certain years.

For future reference, these guys do custom mattresses and accessories. I am pretty happy with the mattress that came in my Thor Vegas 25.4. But it's a corner bed, full size and I was able to get them to make a custom fitted sheet that fits it perfectly.
