As usual, Mariel wants to be healed from her foot surgery NOW not two months from now! She is getting antsy since all she can do right now is sit in the lounge chair ALL day. It has also turned into her bed, and to help out and be close by, I am now sleeping on the couch next to her. We both miss our nice comfy king size bed that is up too many stairs for her to get to.
That got me thinking today, how comfortable is RV furniture? During our trip to Albuquerque the other day we noticed that much of it doesn’t seem very comfortable at all. As a matter of fact, my brother-in-law removed two leatherish lounge chairs from his brand new 5th wheel and replaced them with a regular full-size recliner from his living room since the lounge chairs were practically useless.
I know this is a minor concern since it can all be replaced with some effort. And Mariel has even found a couple places that will do custom work and remodel the RV for us if we want it changed. But I’d rather forgo the added expense of that.
I’m thinking we might just do what we did with our current bed. Originally, we planned on getting a Tempur-Pedic bed but found the price was out of our reach at about $2700. It was an extremely comfortable bed, but we just couldn’t get that kind of money at the time (and we don’t do credit). So we took a step down bought a 13″ thick memory foam mattress from Sam’s Club for a few hundred dollars instead. So, if needed, we should be able to get a nice mattress for our RV bed relatively inexpensively.
I know living in the RV will take some adjustment (maybe a lot of adjustment) in our lifestyle; but I’m hoping our standard of comfort isn’t one of them!
