I have the Ultimate Dreams MEDIUM 3" Talalay, had no idea on densities as there is/was no where you can try latex, and it darn well isn't getting rolled up back into the box. For the $ I'll live with it, at least for a while. Maybe I can come up with a sandwich like Pat that'll work, another 3" of soft on top, of course we'll be getting closer and closer to the loft ceiling.

Buying bedding is not my favorite activity, right up there with walking into the car dealership.

Bob I think it was Jim Bennett who bought a new latex mattress for his 19 ft .Maybe he will chime in . If the mattress doesn't work you want some 3 in firm foam on bottom then your 3 in med latex and if you want it softer get 2 in soft latex for top . That will give you 8 in total . ! and should give you a nice bed . For me I need support for my back but soft to kind of sink in , so no pressure points . You don't want to go to high . Hope this helps . Pat

I ordered mine from Plush beds . If they don't come with a cover , I can't remember . I did get a cotton cover or bamboo . The soft latex can tear moving around , hence cover and you just flip it , to move it then it will stay put . Pat

I just use a memory foam topper never have slept in the trailer when it was cold enough to harden it but I guess if you travel in very cold weather it might get hard. I've not had that issue the latex mattress sounds nice but I'm very comfortable with my topper

Don't think the joints were designed to last more then 50 years, they sure get uncomfortable easy. Could sleep on anything 10 or more years ago. I can dig up Jim's post, but after buying the topper I'll try and make it work. Not like I stayed awake for the 4 weeks we used it in February.

I have used the stock mattress in all my close to dozen campers, both used and new. I did replace the EggCamper one with a futon after awhile but after sleeping on the ground or if any one is a veteran, those military mattresses, the stock rv mattress is a whole better and I'm asleep before my head hits the mattress.

Wifey thought the stock 21 mattress was too soft. ETI put us in contract with their supplier - we had them build the most firm mattress they could and delivered it to Escape with their regular orders. Paid them $450 Canadian and Escape gave us a $150 credit for not using their stock version. Great mattress.

Escape Interior questions

My wife and I find the stock Escape mattress very comfortable.

About the vinyl on dinette cushions, if you boondock and don't run your Maxifan and keep the trailer cooler to save battery you will find the vinyl necessary as the condensation doesn't penetrate to the foam inside. We do pull the top of the seat back cushions forward to lessen the condensation.

The vinyl does serve a purpose . Somewhere on the forum a couple used pool noodles behind the dinette cushions that also helps . Also makes sitting more comfortable . Pat
