I've said it on here and the Facebook page but my view is don't buy an innerspring, pocket or otherwise. Save a heap of weight and get a good quality foam mattress made and designed for RV use.

Much lighter, easier to make and so very comfortable. Probably cheaper too. We got $250 off the price of our Tvan by not getting a mattress with it and going to Mattresses direct and getting a QS Hydroflex. It's had two years of work now and still as good as when it was new. Unlike a lot of foam mattresses, it's not too hot to sleep on, even in FNQ. $690 less the $250 we saved so the total extra cost over getting the standard Tvan foam mattress was $440.

We got the pocket mattress as an included option on our Scout, and are very glad we got it.  It is more comfortable than our mattress in our house, and it doesn't seem to retain body heat like the foam one in our house.

Having said that, like Gumb suggests there are probably better deals out there, we were just lucky it was included in the price :)
