  • Sleep Number Adjustable Bed King Size

    We are planning on buying a 29 5T
    We recently purchased a king size sleep number adjustable bed for home use. We would like to know if anyone has ever used their home adjustable base and mattresses in the RV?
    Thanks.

    We have for the last 5 years. We had to put a piece of plywood on top of the frame that comes in the trailer to provide a solid support for the sleep number bed. Also upgraded the gas cylinders the hold the bed platform in the up position.

      Ours is a brand new one in the past few months. Do you mean you also have the adjustable base that lifts the head and feet? Also, excuse the newbie question, but what do you mean on "upgraded the gas cylinders"?

        We have a sleep number queen size bed that was sold specifically for RVs. Has a couple of features limited like remembering sleep numbers for example after you lower the pressure for travel. Our 27-5l has a plywood platform already so no problem with the base. I only had to drill holes for the hoses. It is much lighter then a standard RV mattress. And the bed lifts easily and stays up no problem. It does move around at bit at times because it has so little weight. Only real issue is you need 110 volt service to manage the air pressure. IE be sure to deflate before you unhook if your using shore power. We have a small inverter that plugs into a 12 volt outlet that we use for boon docking. Honestly, there is no other to have a mattress when both users want a different firmness. We have had no problems at all in 9 or 10 years of use.

          I also have one, I got it in 2014. It is AC so I hooked it up to my inverter so we can do our adjusting. We go from sea level to 10,000 ft. Hehehehe the bed goes from nice to a rock. I used aluminum slats to help instead of plywood. LOVE IT. PS, we have one at home so my bed is already done but the one at home is a King. On the Queen the wife is a bed hog. She doesn’t read this site Hehehehe so I am safe

            Thanks.
            The Arctic Fox uses the “NW TruRest Mattress w/UltraDeck Sleep System” which is a mattress on a web support on a square metal frame that will not has the support that is required for a sleep number bed. We added a piece of plywood on top of the metal frame to provide that support. It add weight to the bed and the gas cylinders that hold the bed open for access to the under bed storage had to be replaced with higher rated with higher rated cylinders to handle the additional weight.

              Thank you everyone for your replies. We have not only they type with the adjustable firmness, but the head and feet raise and lower. I am thinking that if weight is not an issue that it should work. We are hoping to do a factory tour this fall prior to buying and should be able to get the final answer then.
              Thanks for the help.

                Our home-based adjustable base weighs about 125lbs per side plus another 20 for the 2 controllers and the mattress weight (inflatable probably much less). I would check to see if the bedroom floor can handle the weight concentrated on 8 posts instead of the stock base which spreads it out over the box sides that hold the current base. No room in our 27-5L anyway.
