Sofa Bed Mattress

by Susan Entner
(Sevierville TN)

Question: Our RV sofa bed mattress is absolutely "unsleepable"! It is more like trying to sleep in a hammock than a bed because the mattress sits in a sling and has no support underneath it. Is there any way of replacing it with the newer inflatable type mattresses?

Robbie: Replacing the mattress is very common, if it fits it will work. The style is up to you. Go for it. Not sure what you have that has no support but an inflatable would require some support. You might want to consider putting the inflatable on top of the mattress you have when you need it.

Thanks for the Question Good Luck,
