We have tried a memory foam topper available at Walmart, and ordered a real Latex topper from Amazon.
I say real as there is apparently fake or simulated or whatever name you want to call fake latex out there too, so be sure your buying
the real thing.
Real Latex is heavy, and ours was full of holes, it was more expensive than the memory foam but didnít make you hot and slept better.
However it moved around and was more trouble than it was worth.
From a comfort perspective the stock foam mattress sitting on top of a Froli, and with the Latex topper was actually very comfortable, didnít have moisture issues, but was a real pain to make the bed
, access under it etc.
We blew the money
based on we would be spending one third of our lives for the next hopefully several years on it.
It depends I guess on what your priorities are as to whether itís worth it or not.
We tried getting a local mattress store having one made for a lot less money
. But they lost
the pattern etc.
Our mattressís shape was too complex for us to DIY
, itís a Pullman berth and the hull
side is curved and also angled to match the hullís shape
If you lose the angle, you lose at least 6Ē of width.
Our mattress is 9Ē thick, and if you could get a single
Latex foam one thick enough, I think that is what Iíd try to do a DIY
You can use an electric
kitchen knife to do a decent job of cutting foam, and there are foam knives available, but I tried several knives, and nothing worked better than the electric
carving knife. Cutting foam is difficult as it snags the knife and stretches, so you have to have an electric knife and go real slow.
I even tried a hacksaw blade
