I purchased a 2011 Zinger 29 ft. back in March. We've used the camper just three times in the 4 mos. we've had it. The queen mattress is badly sagging where we lay. Upon review, found this mattress is only a filament filled mattress with no innerspring support. It is killing my back now. Has anyone experienced this and what have you done to get satisfaction from the dealer? Or, did you have to go out and buy a more substantial mattress. If so, what choice did you make. I'm looking at Camping World's Euro Innerspring Queen 60x74 (which seems a little short, but matches up with the original size mattress). Looks to have good reviews!

The mattresses are terrible. We just bought 2" memory foam to put on top. Fortunately I found it on sale for more than half price, so we are going to give it a try.

throw it out and go buy a mattress, if they replace it it will be with the same junk you have, we bought a nice king bed and kept the old one when we sell we will switch, we even kept the ugly bedspread...

Well I can tell you even the 2" topping will not help the stock mattress. The mattress itself will still begin to sink in and will not provide firm support to keep original shape. I went ahead and bought an innerspring mattress and added my 2" topper to it. It feels much better, but have not given it a true long term test yet. I'm hopeful the new mattress will resolve this issue.

We replaced our stock mattress with a Sealy and added a 3" topper which greatly improved our sleep but it still felt like after a while you were sinking towards the middle of the bed. That was because there is little to no support under the bed frame. I did the mod below that Larry Day posted about and it is a 100% improvment. No more sag.

First thing we did was replace the mattress. I extended the frame and installed a california queen pillow top. Would not consider the mattress a warranty item.

2" memory foam topper from walmart did wonders!

Our original, flimsy, rotten mattress wore out at the side corner. We had put a topper on it prior to that and it made for a decent night's sleep. Under warranty CR offered us a replacement. I asked if I could get the replacement cost in lieu of that same type mattress. They offered $125 that we put toward a decent 12" memory foam mattress.



Watching Karen and I "install" the new matteress that came rolled up to about 2" thickness was something no one should have missed. It unrolled itself with the top side down. We struggled to turn this 80 lb. monster in the limited bedroom space but we eventually won.Edited by: artgpo

Art, that sounds like Beverly andI when we pulled the old mattress out and went back in with the new one. Then we had to get the 3" topper back in and on the new mattress. There were several times we would just look at each other like "okay which way are you going with this". With limited space you have to work in the same direction. Then when I decided to do Larry's mod she said "you mean we have to do this all over again"? I just kept my head down and kept working.

We went with the sleep number matteres for Rvs. Nice to be able to adjust it the way you want. One word of caution though, make sure the better half does not have control of your side, gets ugly fast lol.

I seem to recall telling you about how I put mine in upside down when you visited me on my first trip.

We replaced the crapola mattress that came with our 5er with the one you mention in the short queen length. I for one would give it 5's. I sleep better on it than the more expensive pillow top mattress we have in the house.

I only wish I had mod'ed the bed frame to fit a full length queen prior. That is on this year's list of mod's and will replace the mattress with the same butin the full length.
