This was a huge mod for the kids!

Our Jayco Fifth wheel bunk beds were supplied with the Teddy Bear Bunk Series Mattresses. While these are nice and fuzzy. They are simply not comfortable for a child over 10. They are thin and with enough use the mattress becomes flat in the middle and it feels like they’re sleeping on the floor. After much research, I decided to try the Zinus Memory Foam 4 Inch Mattress. The “Narrow Twin” is 30″X75″ and fits our bunks perfectly! Please note: not all bunks in RV’s are the same size. Measure before you order.
Needless to say, I was super excited. Ana was dying and started to sleep on extra blankets because the Bear Bunks just weren’t cutting it for her. They finally arrived after the LONG two day Amazon Prime shipping window! These were actually a surprise and when the boxes arrived at the RV Office, they were so heavy that they had to push the boxes to the truck.
This was the easy part or maybe not. The mattresses were in a tight roll, so you had to remove them from the box and then the plastic and you had to let it sit for 24-48 hours before use! This wasn’t the easiest thing and I can see how it could be difficult especially if you have a small space. We ended up putting them where they were going to live and having the kids take their bear bunk mattresses and sleep on the floor.
The first night they slept on the Zinus Mattresses was the best night they had in a while! They woke up in great moods as well! No back issues for Ana either!
Don’t forget to protect your new investment!
While we are out of the “wet the bed” stage, you still want to protect your new mattresses from any unforeseen accidents so I grabbed these waterproof covers. These fit the new bunks perfectly as well as these sheet sets!
