Seems to be alot of trouble with the 4" memory foam toppers???
We just have the 4 inch seat cushions with the $59 Wal*Mart 1 1/2 topper and it works great.
Before we got that I insisted we put flannel sheets over the cushions and the wife did not see any wisdom in this as we were sleeping in sleeping bag but this helped hold the cushions together.
I think like any product you will get a reject once in a while but if the 4" stuff doesn't work try something else and at the cost some of you spend, I would for sure get my money back.

been some time since I was on this site, been to busy camping every weekend. Sad it might be time to put her to bed for the winter. i just wanted to add... We never put up our table, but leave it as a bed all the time. we took the bench foam covers and store them in the garage. We have a 6 inch foam matterss and I have to say it is the best sleep we get, that is why we hate to stop camping. we do not cook or run water in the trailer, it is just our bed on wheels so to speak and a different place to lock her down every weekend.

This trailer is the best idea we have had in years, used to do the tents and tent trailers, but they do not compare to our surfside.

Does that 6" bend easily to get into the area under the bench?

On our front bench I have two 3 inch pieces, one firmer and one memory foam. I can easily pull one up and then the other. Was thinking that 6 inches might be more of a problem, especially on the bigger bed.

By the way. I noticed that you are from Winnipeg. Please note the Grand Marais, MN gathering June 12-15. We need to draw northern people. The Lanesboro group already has 70 views. Well, they have the Cities, Des Moines and Chicago folks to come. Maybe I need to look to Canada for hardy people ready to camp early season.

I bought my Memory Foam at, they have 2, 3, and 4 inch, most of it is made by Serta,
we bought the 4 inch and it seems to work well. It seems that it don't make any difference how big you
buy, it is all the same price so we got the California King and cut it into 2 pieces one for each of the beds
in our BigFoot. It cuts easy if you smash it with a straight edge or a 2X4 and use a sharp knife.
Here is a link to the sight we bought it from.

A couple of things that I don`t like about my memory foam from Obusform in our home is that your body gets too warm from the foam as it doesn`t breathe like a regular mattress.....your body heat can`t dissipate, and also it takes a bit of time to get to its shape when you turn over and so you tend to roll into the depression that was made when you were sleeping on it......I find that if I wake at about 3-4 a.m. I have a hard time going back to sleep....maybe it`s me and not the memory foam.....maybe I`ll try another bedroom that has a regular mattress and see if there is a difference over a few days....Benny

Interesting. We bought a 6" queen mattress from them and love it enough to consider buying an 8" version for our bed at home. Our 6" mattress is 4" of firm foam base with a 2" memory foam topper. (The 8" is supposed to be 2" memory foam, 3" medium foam, and 3" firm foam.)

We've been using the 1 1/4" for a couple of years now, excellent. Got it from Zellers in a Queen size for the Tillium 4500's big bed. Generally leave the bed down all the time anyway.
