We have a Tempur-pedic mattress at home so opted to bring our own 6" memory foam mattress bought from Amazon to orientation. Got the thinner foam to increase head room in the 5.0 TA. ETI gave us credit for their mattress. Absolutely comfortable during 120+ nights on it in the past year.

The Escape mattress seems to be good quality and we have had no problems with it in our 3yr old Escape. Whether or not you are comfortable and can sleep well on the mattress is very subjective and is likely different for every individual. My wife says that she likes the mattress and has few problems sleeping on it. I myself find it not quite as comfortable as I would prefer, and it usually takes me 2 or 3 days of restless sleep at the start of a trip before I start to sleep better. I have suggested to my wife that getting a memory foam topper would be nice (for me), but so far my loss of sleep has not been a big enough selling point for us to get the memory foam.

Our Escape 21's mattress is more comfortable than our home mattress. I guess we now need to get a new one for home.

We plan on sticking with the Escape mattress when we get our camper, and if we have any issues will just buy a 3 inch memory foam topper to put on top and we will be good to go. After years of tent camping and sleeping on the ground anything will be an improvement. Hoping for no more hip joint pain in the morning.

The stock mattress is plenty comfortable for us Mike, but if you've got issues with joint pain, you might benefit from a Memory Foam or Latex mattress instead of the conventional spring one. The support is way different. I used to have backaches on occasion before the wife and I switched to a TempurPedic - and that was over 12 years ago. I've probably only had one or two backaches since, and that wasn't from sleeping, it was from forgetting I'm not 25 anymore.

We don't have a permanent bed with mattress. We use the cushions in the rear dinette to make up a bed. By the third day of sleeping on them, my hips hurt, so we added a two inch topper.
Now, I sleep just fine, sleep like a baby, except for the bladder alarm.

After sleeping on a traditional mattress for years we recently switched to a memory foam mattress at home and it has been wonderful. I used to toss and turn from side to side due to pressure points and aching joints but with the new mattress that is no longer an issue. They might not be right for everyone but they sure work for us.
