The Little RV is Taking Advantage of Staying Put for a While

Whenever we land somewhere for a period of time we have lots of things that need to be done.  Getting things shipped when you are on the move all the time can be difficult.  I have arranged to have our mail sent so we can get caught up and vote, etc. We have our semiannual stock of vitamins on the way.  Our truck is in the shop getting an oil change and hopefully a diagnosis.  We have been hearing a thump, thump, thump when we are driving down the road.  Rob thinks it may be a wheel bearing.  

By far the most exciting thing we are expecting is our new mattress.  When we bought the little RV we never even considered the mattress quality. After living with a 6 inch innerspring mattress of the lowest possible quality for over two years it was just time.  When we realized how awful the mattress is we purchased a 3 inch memory foam topper which helped a lot but now it has Rob and Juley shaped dents in it and we are tired of waking up with aches and pains caused by our bed. It can't be helping Rob's spinal stenosis much either.
The new mattress is a 12" memory foam mattress with cooling gel.  It also comes with two free pillows and has a 20 year warranty.  It comes in a box with the air sucked out of it . When it arrives we'll open it up and watch it expand to its regular size.  I found the mattress on Amazon at this link. The customer reviews are really good. 

We have a RV King sized bed so it is 80" x 72" which is not a standard king. The advantage to getting it while we are here is the opportunity to have help getting the old one out and to the dump not to mention having an actual shipping address.

Could this be a life altering purchase?
