new mattress for zinger

Euro Pillow Top MattressWe’ve been in the Zinger for a little over a year. During that time everything has been great except for the cheesy mattress that many RV manufacturers seem honor bound to include in their rigs.

Over the past year my svelte body has turned my side of the bed into the shape of a taco shell. I can actually feel the grain of the plywood platform through the mattress. Ain’t Leo has finally had enough, so she had me order a new mattress for the rig.

We (I) did a lot of research online and finally settled on the Euro Pillowtop Short Queen mattress from Camping World. We looked at price, comfort and reviews and this is the one that made the cut.

I ordered it last Monday and received an email notice that it was backordered until June 18th. Tuesday it arrived on the front porch in an 18″ X 18″ X 60″ box. Looks like the backorder got filled sooner than they expected. It worked out great for since we are leaving for Village Creek State Park this afternoon.

I pulled the old floppy taco out of the camper, sliced it into strips and bagged it up for trash pickup. Then I opened the box, pulled out the innerspring jelly roll and positioned it on the bed platform. A quick flick of the knife through the plastic wrap and it exploded into place.

The instructions say that the unit will expand into its fully inflated condition within 12 hours. After sleeping on the taco for so long I couldn’t resist a quick load test of the new mattress. All I can say is that if it gets any more comfortable after 12 hours I’m gonna be in love!

I’ll give a quick update after the trip to let you know how it went.
