I've got one (kingsize), sorry I don't know the make of it

They are a bit of a potch to transport, I fold mine into a jumbo zipped bag to store it.  It does reform itself even after being stored for a couple of months.

It does take me a few nights to get used to it as well (maybe thats just me and my back) but the first few days my back is a bit stiff after sleeping in it, does get better over time.

We bought a full memory foam matress and it was the worse thing on this earth for my back.It felt good to begin with but dont be fooled they do not give support as the heat from your body makes you sink into it and turning around is a job in its self..

I made the mistake of buying a 'cheapie' memory foam topper from Netto - it was very poor and was not
where near as good as the Silent Night one I have at home. Most toppers are only about 1 inch thick and only make a small difference to the bed. I do find that they make me sweat more than a normal mattress even with a quilted protector on top of it. Overall I think they are ok if you get a decent one but don't expect miracles.

I bought a 2inch memory foam mattress off ebay - no cover on it, but I found it great for our campervan.  It filled all the cracks you get with having to put the seats together to make up  the bed, which were really hard and uncomfortable.  I bought a double, and cut it in half, more economical.  However, it wasnt dear, about 40.

We are just to take over a caravan, and will see if the foam is needed, but personally, I like it, so  will possibly still continue to use it.  In fact I have the same thing on my side of the bed at home - although we do have a memory foam mattress, which I find is hard, (very disappointing - cost us an arm and a leg).  Without the foam, I find my hips really ache when I awake.  So for me, it does the job.

We use a 3" topper in our Combi Camp. My hubby has problems with his spine & usually has to get up 3-4 times every night to sit upright till the pain goes off, but at Easter in the Combi he only woke up once each night, and that was to use the loo . So the memory foam made a big difference for him.

The density of the toppers can make quite a difference to the comfort for individuals. If you go for an 80 density it will be quite firm. A 40 is very soft. We went for a 55 which is just nicely in between

Got one from B & M ( a 'cheapie' homewares store ). 39.99 for a double including cover - which looks identical to the Dunelm product we checked out.

It's great!

Rolls up to pack away.

we paid 60 for a 50mm double memory topper c/w cover for our dandy,the topper is really comfy i have had spinal surgery and it helps me sleep well.Ours is a 65kg density,the thing to look for is its density a cheap low 40kg is not going to be supportive.The best toppers are upwards of 80kg which i have at home as the higher the density the more supportive and the longer it will last.
