    Whilst my mh mattress is new it could be more comfortable, and I've been considering a Memory Foam topper. There seem to be plenty of cut price "Memory Foam" toppers on eBay, but I wonder if any in them are any good i.e. do they give added comfort in summer and winter? I'm not interested in Duvalay bags as we prefer a duvet and fitted sheet. Has anyone bought a cut price topper? If you have I'd be pleased to hear what you think. Thanks.

    We tried the cut price mattress toppers from various sources. As we were in a PVC and had to roll them up each evening we found they quickly started to crack. We then stumped up the cash for a raskelf memory foam topper, whilst expensive they are still in great condition after 5 years.
    This is simply our personal experience, perhaps if we hadn't needed to roll and put away each day the cheaper memory foam toppers would have been OK.

    I haven't bought a cut price one, but cheap enough at Dunhelm. It improved the comfort no end. I used to suffer from bad hips after a night in the Folding Camper, but after the topper was put on, no more pain. It did make the sleep hotter during the Summer, but not enough to out weigh the pros. We now have a new MH and will jump at the chance of a memory foam topper again if or when needed. Just need to find one that is a super king size.

    We have had 2 single raskelfs and also a double which we have on our bed at present, we found they did improve our sleep immensely , I like the zip on breathable covers on them , also the zip on sheets makes bed making so much easier , we had bought a cheapie first but couldn't stand the smell of it so returned it

    The raskelfs is now duvaley I believe

    They are a bit expensive, but It's Raskelf Gold memory foam Toppers for us.

    Cheap no good,
    Good no cheap.

    We have had a couple from SNUG MATTRESSES, sorry can't give you a link, but just google it. Not especially cheap but we have found them very comfy, various thicknesses and density, good choice, recommend them.
    Cheers, Dave(y)

    Just ensure it is proper memory foam, there is a big difference.

    Try Costco online if not a member direct, they have some good deals and the quality is always there with a great returns service if not

    We have the original Hymer Memory Foam mattress in our B564. I find it too hot for me, and have put a mattress topper on it that was advertised as specifically for use on memory foam mattresses to keep them cool throughout the night - can't remember the make, but it was bought from John Lewis. It worked for us.

    Now if you want pure luxury - at home mind, not in the motorhome - I can heartily recommend this.....

    After sleeping on one in a hotel in Jodphur, I came home and tried to find the equivalent. Anne Davey owns the company, and is a pleasure to deal with. We sleep in luxury every night now.... (y)

    Thank you both but I was only asking because we received our new duvaley mattress yesterday. Tried it today and it is 3cm to wide or 133cm instead of 130cm. They are dealing with my claim at present so I don't want give them any negative feedback at present.

    We've got a memory foam topper on our home bed and one on our Hymer drop down bed. The home one I think was a Silent night one bought maybe 10 years ago £50 and still comfortable. The MH one we bought from Aldi for £40, also very comfortable. We've had it about two years. I think they make the bed warmer though. That could be a good thing or not depends on the individual.
