    Yes. I have the original 2003 mattress. its time for a change. The 2 inch topper was too soft for my back. The modern version of mattress is much better now than it was at 2003 .

    We tried using just the 3" Novaform directly on the OSB bunk ends but they weren't firm enough and my hips and shoulders were hitting the OSB. I like the comfort of the foam on top of the original mattress better than under it.

    Get the appropriate mattress for the popup, you will be fine. Maybe add 1 inch shop foam under the mattress just in case.

    I've read some people use anti-fatigue mats. I wonder how carpet padding would work.

    Yep; I agree. I've even given that some thought, but I tend to think the exercise mats would be better because the compression is much more concentrated on an elbow or a hip and the matting is more firm. Does anyone know if there are different grades of exercise mats to choose from? And which one is the best for backing up the mattress?

    I am going to need a new mattress. My current one is from 2006 and my elbows, shoulders, and hips bottom out badly. With the design of my camper I don't have any real limitations on thickness. I am guessing my current one is about 3 inches thick. I am thinking about 4 inches, but would 5 or more be overkill?

    BelchFire I like to use the blankets because I already own a stack of them. There easy to change out/clean. They also have other uses like Rugs, Curtains & Bedding.
