Foam or inner-spring?

Arrrrrrgh Shaker.

Foam is so uncomfortable after a couple of nights.

After my first trip on a foam mattress I went to these guys they have some in stock or will make to order, even strange shapes.

One of the best upgrades to my camper. It is as nice as my mattress at home.

I wouldn't confuse the new memory foam beds with the old stuff though. We blind tested a heap of beds at David jones and, against all advice bought the bed that we found the most comfortable. 18 months later I am still very happy with it. The only one more comfortable was $15k which the Mrs looked serious about buying for a while there - another reason to like foam!

Yeah, I also think it is a personal thing gbc. I tried a memory foam one ( in a shop) and found it still uncomfortable. The problem for me was that I sleep on my side and at only 12 cm thick, my hips touched the wood underneath. It was better than a normal foam mattress but not great for me. I ended up with the pillow top spring mattress. Others might find that crappy.

I guess the issue is to try whatever you want to get first.

Boobook, you can get those pillow top mattresses that are only 120 mm high (the OPs specification) can you?

From that site:


Standard – fire retardant cotton cover (12cm)
Elite – quality poly/cotton cover (14cm)
Elite Pillow Top – quality poly/cotton cover with 10-year guarantee foam filling (17cm)

Nothing there stating "plush." It's just the "standard cotton" model at 120 mm thick. The Pillow top we were talking about is 170 mm thick.

Some years ago we went to Beds Direst in Victoria (as recommended above) too when we replaced our foam mattress with an innerspring (and we live in SA).
Best decision we made in replacing the foam that came with the soft floor camper trailer.
Was made to measure, requested low profile (i.e.-thin) and as the camper is made to sleep East/West, there is an extension piece zipped on to the end that extends out over the drop/down side. This was a no-fuss item for them, they knew what we were talking about (it is called a bumper)
Was made to measurements Emailed to them and fits perfect.
Was not overly expensive from what I remember.
Picked it up on a trip over that way. Pulled up at their place, open the camper and put the new mattress in. They took the foam off us for recycling by the local recycle place.
Am never disappointed sleeping on it.

Rob, had a custom inner spring mattress made to fit the top of the Roof Top Taj from these guys, Made to Measure Mattresses .

Top quality and very happy with the product.

+1.
They know their stuff; they add extra edge reinforcement plus (extra) ventilation.

We have a 150mm foam mattress from Clark Rubber in the Troopy and find it very comfortable. It is on a 90x19mm slat base which allows good ventilation.
Against Clark Rubber's advice, the first cheaper one purchased tended to collapse in the centre so changed it to the slightly dearer one which has not sagged at all. Cannot remember the price.

Glad this question was asked. We are going to replace our innerspring mattress that came with our camper trailer, with a good quality foam mattress. Our previous camper had a foam mattress which we prefer and was really comfy (we are away 4-5 weeks at a time). Thanks Allan, we were looking at going to Clark rubber. Each to their own I guess!
