Try a pure natural latex mattress. It the best foam for a mattress. It is heavy and dense so it supports you better than synthetic foam including memory foam. At the same time it is soft so there are no pressure points. What will work almost as well 90% is a 4 inch topper. I've had other mattress nothing is as nice as natural latex. It's all I sleep on.
A friend owns a furniture and mattress store. He buys top of the line mattress cuts them open. You would be surprised at how cheap expensive, $2000+ mattress are made.

We added a new heavier mattress and then had the bed seperate from the wall. Had to rebuild the bed and add rollers.

Thanks, I have hip and back problems and my DH has shoulder issues and we are both side sleepers so our bed is killing us!

We suffered around with the original mattress that came in our rig, with a high end topper that made it work. Last year, we finally had a custom mattress made, same size as the RV King with radius corners that we had. We also went with latex foam, and it is great. The mattress is also quite a bit lighter than the inner spring mattress it replaced, and it is also able to be flipped.

I wish I could say we had the same success with an expensive natural latex mattress. Bought one for home a number of years ago and within just a couple of years it was sagging so much in the areas where we slept that it became very uncomfortable.

For the Monte we use a memory foam topper on top of the original mattress and that works fine for us. But then we are not full timers.

We took a high end mattres of our guest room and added a 4inch topper. Works great. Put a new not so much high end in the guest room. Found the kids visits were lasting far to long. Fix that.

Sleep number here as well. Liked the RV one so much that we bought the exact same one for home!

BB I have had out latex mattress for years and there is zero sagging. Pure latex will not sagg. That is the beauty of latex. I don't dispute your word but what you got is not what my friend sells. What a lot of manufacturers sell as latex foam mattress are two inches of latex foam and eight inches of Walmart foam. The cheap foam under the latex sagged. My mattress cost about a thousand a friend bought an expensive mattress for $2800. It did exactly what your mattress did. There is about as much markup in mattress as there is in jewelry.

We bought a sleep number for our 5th wheel 3 years ago and love it.. We have one in our stick built for 20 years... Great that we can each adjust each side for our comfort level..

We threw out our cheap coil mattress and bought from Walmart on-line a king 10" memory foam mattress with gel. About $325 with the tax. Came in a box and was easy to install. What wasn't easy was the fact the king coil was on a queen foundation. Went to Home Depot and bought birch plywood at $40/sheet and used the queen pieces as a template. Now the mattress is fully supported side to side. In addition, Montana had just cut off the corners of the plywood at the foot of the foundation but we rounded ours. We did think we would sink deeper into the mattress but it does provide good firm support. Very pleased with our purchase.
