Regarding the hardness of the cold memory foam mattress in winter, we have a 12-v electric throw blanket that we run for about a half hour before bunking for the night. Warms up the bed well and makes a nice little cocoon environment.
hi..I think you should go for Ikea mattress...that are very good and comfortable. I am using it from past 2 years and are quite satisfied with it. Use that, I am sure you gonna love it.
I finally got tired of sore shoulders and neck and had Alaskan fit my camper for a real 10" mattress. Couldn't be happier despite the weight.
Probably an issue because I use my camper so much.

We went with an Ikea Latex mattress in our truck, it's even more comfortable than the one in the house. The mattress goes on the adjustable slat base. It's bit on the heavy side, but we can sleep in comfort which is more important considering how long we will be on the road. The slats and mattress weight in at around 65kg.
We chose the latex and slat option over foam because of the problems condensation, mould etc. We will be travelling in humid climates and don't want the "musty boat/caravan" smell that seems to permeate a lot of campers over here.
Are all of you using these foam mattresses in campers? Anyone use one tent camping? If so, how do you pack it down for car transport?
