For our bed at home I followed Donna's lead and got the 4"-4lb density from I love it. We are going to get one for the trailer too. I have found with my back, rib, and chest issues (chronic costochondritis) a soft sleeping surface is a good thing.

The place we got our 3" memory foam had two choices -- expensive and more expensive. The more expensive, which we ended up getting, was denser and returned to form more quickly. We put this over a 4" medium density latex foam for a permanent bed in our boler, and it has provided a very comfortable sleep.

I suppose the only complaint I'd have is that the foam does tend to absorb a lot of body heat and get pretty warm.

Thanks to Donna for mentioning the electric knife trick. It worked GREAT for cutting my new mattress topper. I went with , got the Cal King and cut it to fit my full bed in the house. I am sure I have plenty left to put on my extra bed in the camper. If this is as comfy as I think tonight, I will be ordering another one to cut to size for the rear bed in the camper. The extra from that one would probably fit somewhere in the house. Could use it in the grandsons crib maybe. I went with 2" for trial now.
Thanks everyone for all the suggestions. It is winter here in Minnesota. I will be ready for another mattress for the camper by spring and should know by then if I will stick with another 2" or go to a 4" and remove the cushions.

Money will buy a fine dog, but only kindness will make him wag his tail.
