Thanks Jim, Hadn't thought about the difference in time it takes to warm it up so it softens up, good reason to go with it for the trailer. Need to buy one or the other for the trailer shortly.

Happy Motoring

Although we chose very good mattresses for the house right from the beginning, we decided to try a memory foam topper when one was given to us. The comfort difference was so surprising we both found reasons to sleep on it in the spare room. That situation was not the best for the marriage so we picked up a 3" memory foam topper at Costco for the main bedroom, too.

We'll get one for the RV too, I'm sure, but now I know to look into latex as well. Thanks

Good question. Latex is buoyant whereas with memory foam its more the opposite. Latex sleeps cool, whereas memory foam sleeps warm. As Rbryan says there is foam and then there is foam. And as with many if not most things one tends to get what they pay for, although there are exceptions to every rule. Our latex mattress at home was just under $3,000, and that was a deal at a store going out of business. We love it, however for the guest room we bought the Costco Queen in a box memory foam- Novaform I believe, and its pretty nice. It cost around $600.
