Check out those Sleep Number beds. We've got one, and based on our results, four or five friends have also purchased them. Everyone is quite satisfied with them.

These beds can be easily be adjusted to be as soft as a pillow, to as hard as a sheet of plywood.

The local Sleep Number bed stores have a setup where you can try it out in the store at different inflation levels. The airbag of these units is made of very heavy material, similar to what you find in those inflatable boats.

Over the top of the airbag, and around the sides is pieces of foam rubber. The top foam is about two inches thick. And, over that is the usual mattress cover, installed with giant zippers.

those sleep number beds are like $2500.. ! can't go that route.

just a good innerspring/coil type good quality mattress is what I need

Figure out what is the most you can spend, and start researching what is out there in your price range. I Google search and read the reviews that you have to cypher through. Some folks just nick pick a item to death.

The wife and both hate shopping for this item, and there not cheap to buy.

Brick think of it as picking out a power system for a plane. Except the performance you want here is what level of comfort do you want to sleep in.:)

you can't go wrong with the original mattress factory . if there is one near you not much more than the cheap stuff & 1,000 times better

Look at Temperpedic I might have a contact for you at their Distribution Center in Lexington, KY

whatever mattress you buy get it with a built-in comfort pad. Ive got a seally with a built-in comfort pad, a 1 inch thick foam pad on top of that & a fitted comfort sheet to top it off. Wouldn't trade this set up for all the tea in china

+1 on sleep number. The best bed we have purchased and works well for my wife and I where tastes are different.

Worth EVERY penny. And we still have ours 12 years later - something not said for any conventional mattress. Weigh in that cost too...

just a suggestion when buying a bed. some distributors like "sleepy's", the sales people make commission. so buying a bed is like buying a car. if your buying an expensive bed consider negotiating the deals they offer to make the purchase sweet and then ask for a further discount. if your buying cheap there won't be room to negotiate.

they will show you the cost of the bed,box spring,frame,shipping,old bed removal[due to bed bugs that might not be available anymore]. then they try to make you feel special by saying the bed frame will be free,and they'll throw in a mattress cover. you might even get the delivery reduced.......all tactics because they don't want to loose the commission on the mattress/box spring.

i bought 2 kingsford beds with a frame to hold them as a king size bed.when the finale cost was calculated and breaks were offered and the final cost was on the table....i said we have a deal if you cut $500 off or i skip the purchase for now.[i said i would think about it]. you could see the other sales woman think the kids in trouble. my saleman was very young.

the store manger came over and told the new salesman he'd get 0 commission but could go ahead with the sale cause business was very slow[this was 2008]. the beds still cost over $2000 but their was room to negotiate. moral to the story. don't buy list cost.

by the way,my wife and i have bought several beds over the 26 years married...these kingsford are absolutly the best and still are flat and so comfortable ,unlike the other beds i spent less for and got what i paid for...sunken mattress after 2 years.:roll:

dahawk 01-07-2014 03:39 PM

What the heck,

Buy a nice couch and 60" flat screen instead. I've been married 26 years and that's where I sleep- LOL Watch what you want and no-one complaining about snoring.

been kinda doing a little research on the Sleep Number beds...don't remember where I saw that $2500 price ? some nice SN beds for way less than that ! going by the store next week

thanks for the tips

gramps2361 01-11-2014 03:24 AM

Great now I find myself looking at the SN beds. The wife and I have both mentioned we need a new mattress it has become uncomfortable over the years. When I started looking at the price and 25 year warranty that's actually a good deal. A mattress only lasts about 10 years top, and for a good set it is around 900 dollars.

Brick I think you might have helped lighten our savings account with your thread, but we will sleep better.

Who would of thought that on a airplane forum we would be discussing mattresses?:) Hmm the SN does work on electricity though.

I've been sleeping on a waterbed now for over two decades. Since they are made of vinyl they don't harbor anything so long as you remember to add a bit of sanitizer to the water every couple of years. So the only reason I would need to replace mine would be if it developed a leak I couldn't patch (such as on a seam). Last time that happened was 1995.

And you can get them real cheap nowadays (less than $100 for the entire bed) :D

We had two different water beds some years ago. And, we did have several leaks in both of them that had to be patched. The second type of water bed we had consisted of a half dozen thin vinyl tubes of water, about 10 inches in diameter, laid side by side.

The water was contained, but it was a mess cleaning up everything that got wet, including the foam cover that took days to dry.

In comparison, that sleep number bed air bag is far far more heavily constructed. If you've ever used an inflatable pontoon boat for river rafting, its the same type of material.

We had an intermittent problem with one of our remote controls last year, several years after we bought it. We're fully expecting to pay for a new unit.

Nope, that remote was still under warranty. They didn't even ask for the old one back. As it turns out, the old one still works pretty well. :oops:

LOL
Unless you get a heated SN bed, it only uses electric power when you command the air pump under the bed to add more air pressure. That only takes a few seconds to do.

We had to have a heater for our old water beds, due to the water sucking heat out of anything on top of it. Never had a problem with the sleep number beds though. It's just as warm as a standard bed.

I used to make furniture and water beds where the rage back in the 80's we had one for 10 years. We had our share of problems with the heater burning out, and waking up one morning to a wet bed. Boy when the water gets cold it does suck your body heat out of you quick.:eek:
Ya reading up on the SN doesn't matter if the power goes out once it's filled and set to your number it stays inflated.
I wouldn't even think of a heated one the wife still gets the hot flashes any of you married guys know what that means.:Q

tobydogs 01-11-2014 02:43 PM

OH MAN!!!!! water beds:Q,i used them when i was younger and they were relatively new to the market. no baffles in the bed back then so to plop down would bounce my girl friend right out. but what a great nights sleep:$,and of coarse other reasons to make waves.

i had a landlady who was the worst ever at one time,she rented the whole basement to us and complained of the dehumidifier i bought and the water bed. when i was at work she would enter my space and turn off the dehumidifier. the water bed used to sweat due to high humid conditions. the last straw was when i found my bed springing leaks.....:confused:,only to discover pin holes at the corner of the bed.a single pin hole is enough to spoil the bed so 5 made it worse. to say the least ,i was so glad i moved. the stress she put on my girlfriend and i[among other things] led to our breaking up.

that was a totally blessing cause i turned my life over to the Lord,met my beautiful wife ,sobered up and never looked back.:ws: I've been married 26 year, the best 20 years of my life:rolleyes:[first 6 or so was bit rough..lol].
