I put a memory foam mattress topper under my foam mattress in my camper and it has worked out very well. I would caution use of any gel foam pad or topper. I bought a new mattress for home a few years ago and woke up the first night in a sweat and thought I had some fatal illness. Turns out there was a band of gel foam around the middle of the mattress and it did not agree with me. The mattress went back and I will never buy anything with gel foam again.

You might find a memory foam mattress is a better solution. We got an 8" one on sale we came across while away on a camping trip, 8 or so years ago. Shortened it with a bread knife in the CG. Very comfortable and deep-sleep inducing! Dog sure loves it!! [emoticon]

We tried a couple of 2" toppers on our mattress at home and they just didn't last and ended up getting a "real" foam topper mattress.

Only downside is that the thicker memory foam mattresses are a fair bit heavier. I had to relocate the two gas strut mounting locations on the under-bed storage lid so it would stay up. Easy to do tho.
