I think you'll like your new latex mattress. We picked a King one up for the stick and bricks house several years ago then decided to throw out the Queen RV OEM Sleep Number piece of "you-know-what" shortly after that. I didn't have the luxury of home delivery and setup like you did, and it was a real bugger getting that friggin' heavy tube up the narrow MH steps...cursing like crazy! Anyways, after several years, still sleepin' like babies. We decided to get duck down pillows from Macy's to go with them, and boy, are they worth the extra money for the coolness and comfort!

Been laughin' out loud with all of the stupid people you have to deal with. I totally empathize with you and wish that more people operated with your pragmatism, philosophy and ideals. 2020 is coming up soon...too early for a Presidential run for you? Now that we know that prior experience is not required!

~ take care.

Hope you like your new mattress. Buying a mattress for an RV is so stressful. It can't be to heavy or to tall. I had ours built at Verlo and I think the sales person thought I was a nut because I had so many requests. It worked out well but I was worried that I would hate it after building it. It is important to keep the weight of the mattress down because I would rather have shoes...lots of shoes in my closet! Lol!

Watch for side effects! Last summer we purchased a latex mattress and pillows for the coach. Initially loved how it slept! However, it wasn’t long before I started having severe breathing problems and panicked shortness of breath issues at night. A trip to the hospital and multiple tests confirmed latex allergies were the culprit. If your skin even mildly reacts with redness, itching or a rash around latex Band-Aids I’d recommend avoiding latex mattresses!
