    Anybody got a Duvalite?

    Are they really any less hot than memory foam?

    And most importantly - do they actually make a difference?

    Do you mean Duvalay? They are now part owned by Hilary Devey from Dragon's Den.

    I have one rolled up at work - haven't used it yet.

    They are made by Raskelf but they are different to their normal memory foam topper.

    That's why I'm asking if anyone knows what they are like, cos they are different!

    I've used the Raskelf for years, one of the best purchases we ever made for a Motorhome. We did try some other memory foam from Argos and it was horrible, it got hot, ended up in a dog bed, don't even think the dog was that that impressed. Duvalay must be handy if your making beds up every night, but just the topper is fine otherwise, I believe it's exactly the same stuff you're lieing on.

    memory foam

    i did have one, but found they were quite large when rolled up. also, the cotton cover started to bobble after 6 months, its a very cheap loose weave and i think they are quite expensive.
    i use a memory foam £50 for double bought from a show and cut the corner off to fit the bed. there are products that are not the real foam but the wording makes them look like they are. i have friends who leave them on the seats in the day, and just throw the duvet over at night.

    We have had Duvalays for some years and find them great.... very comfortable, cozy and convenient.:thumb:

    Joyce has different tog rated inner duvets which we change according to the season and if the weather is very hot we use them without any duvet.:Cool:

    I've got one with both the summer & winter duvets.
    Plus Points: It's very comfortable & cosy, nice to sleep in.
    Minus Points: Expensive & mine came with a section of unstitched seam, their only suggestion was send it back at my expense, not even a sorry. :Sad:
    Mrs simbadog stitched it up & has since had to do another corner!

    We've had a Raskelf topper for 7 years one of the best things we've ever bought for the m/home. Tried a cheap one it was terrible Raskelf may be expensive but worth every penny in our opinion. Used ours in the sahara at plus 40 and the alps at minus 25 and never had a problem and certainly not had this hot problem that some people mention.
    Buy quality buy once:thumb::thumb:

    We bought two standard toppers from
    lidl about 5 years ago and they work perfectly.
    But they are a bit bulky to store.:Smile:

    I bought 1 at the NEC for the better half and now looking at getting 1 for myself as she says it just great, a bit bulky to store is the only problem

    what I can't decide is do I just buy the topper and use my sleeping bag or buy the complete set decisions decisions

    Raskelf are not only the best.

    Very good customer service

    Liz & Alan are very nice people who take time for you.

    IMO there is no beter product than Raskelf.

    I have two toppers and two Duvalay's.

    Jim you should give Liz a call she is always looking for new places to advertise.

    Memory Foam

    Hi Folks, we have two single beds at the rear of our Dethleffs and replaced the two standard fit concrete mattresses with two full memory foam yokes. we use single duvets and as the beds are always made up, there is no storage issue. The duvelays look to be a great product though. Give them a go, life's too short not to treat yourself to a wee bit of comfort.
    Regards John

    We use the ones by Raskelf and they are absolutely brilliant. Couldn't do without them!

    The Duvalite is new according to their website, it is NOT their normal memory foan toppers, it is DIFFERENT.

    Now there is no date on how NEW it is, so I therefore wondered

    IS IT ANY DIFFERENT FROM A NORMAL USUAL MEMORY FOAM TOPPER (theirs or anyone else's) cos they say it is.

    I thought it was a simple question. :Doh:

    If you have got a Duva LITE could you please just answer my question, because so far I have three pages of telling me things I either already know or don't want to! :Rofl1:

    I don't mind when it's a silly question, and I spose I shouldn't expect any more!!! :Smile:

    I response to Hilldweller, I expect T'chap would love one Brian - but if I catch him with her - he best mind certain parts dear to him!

    (Actually he positively radiates in bed, which is brill for my tootsies and the rest of me this weather, but not anywhere near so good when I still can't sleep at 3am at 30+ degrees C in an overcab bed - or previously an airless Greek apartment .......)

    Have looked at their advert, and this seems to be a replacement mattress.
    As stated in earlier post of useless information, we replaced our concrete slabs with memory foam, and if this "stuff" is going to be even better - then go for it,
    but my take on the advert is that this is not a duvet type cover, but a new product to replace your mattress.
    And as stated earlier - life is too short not to treat yourself to a weeee bit of comfort.
    It is just two years now since our only child - a young man of 19 years was killed in a RTA and we are glad we took the time to do so much with him.
    Don't just think about it - do it and enjoy!
    Regards.
