It has come time that I want to actually purchase some kind of mattress. I need a custom size (30x74) which seems to be a somewhat common size for custom. The problem is there seems to be at least 50 different choices. I can rule out the expensive ones and the really thick ones. Really? Is there a need for a mattress that is 14 inches thick?
A little background, I can pretty much sleep on anything, currently in the bus I am using a thick feather tick pad. It's just a tad small and hard to make up into a nice looking bed. It's also getting old. Since I only sleep on my side I find that anything that I sink into very far makes my knees hurt.
Mumsywumsy is much more demanding about mattresses. She likes pretty firm with a soft foam on top. Currently in the bus she is using a bed cushion from the old camper with foam on top of that.
The bed we sleep on in the house is a firm mattress and she has a soft foam on top of her side.
I guess I'm looking for recommendations on type of foam, or what to look for. There are terms like gel foam, memory foam. I'm kind of looking at this one.
