New memory foam it is. Our old memory foam mattress served us well. It lasted a good 15 years or so.
The reviews online for the Select Comfort air mattresses leaned to much in the negative direction. Which made us too nervous to try it out.
After looking at different options and David did a lot of research he found Sleep Innovations. They are made in the USA which we love and they make a memory foam mattress for Serta, a long time recognizable name brand.
David did a lot of research on the company and their product. They get good reviews, have a decent price point and the warranty is nice.
Then we narrowed it down to two places to buy. Sam’s Club and Amazon. Sam’s had a nice price, were local and in stock, but only one variety to choose. Amazon had several varieties, nice prices and they were sold through Prime, which means we could get it delivered the next day for $4 bucks!
So Amazon won out. We ordered our mattress and had it in two days? Thanks to UPS for screwing that one up. Oh well.
It’s amazing how they ship these things. It came in a box that easily fit in the back of our Saturn Outlook SUV, with the trunk door closed mind you. No mattress tied to the roof with twine fraying with every turn just waiting to fly off the roof for us….no thank you!
We had a harder time folding our old mattress and getting that sucker in the dumpster than we did getting the new mattress in our motorhome and set up.
The New Mattress Starting To Expand
10 seconds later, yes I really meant 10 seconds, we had a mattress. Yeah!
It is really cool to watch.
And yes, they say it is not fully expanded for 72 hours, but you can sleep on it right away. The expansion it still had to do was marginal.
Once the new mattress was on the bed platform, we started opening it up. With this process, you must move pretty quickly. You see, the mattress is shipped folded and compressed, with all air out of it. So once the mattress is exposed to air, it starts expanding and unfolding. So getting the plastic that it was shipped in off can get tricky if you wait to long.
Our New Memory Foam Mattress
Sleeping on it was nice. We both got a good nights sleep. So yeah for that.
I think we got ourselves a winner.
