Duvalay

Our van is just under 4 years old and we have a duvalay Apollo mattress that frankly has collapsed where we lie, I have been in touch with a dealer it seems a common problem for our van it is also out of warranty .
We would be loath to buy another duvalay has anyone got any ideas for another make it is the sort with the corner cut off

Phil a few years ago we bought an Apollo custom made mattress for our caravan and it was poor and customer service was appalling. When we complained about it they told us to buy a topper from them at a cost of over £100! The mattress was not even 6 months old.
On our current caravan we bought a mattress from customsizebeds and have not looked back. It cost as much as the Apollo mattress but it is very comfortable and we get a good night's sleep.

We have an Ozio mattress, its very comfortable. I don't know if there are available for sale to the public, ours is the original fitted by Coachman.

BTW it was Ozio mattress in our previous and current caravan that we rejected and had to have replaced. Actually it was one of the reasons why we rejected the previous Buccaneer caravan.

Our Duvalay mattress is less than 2 years old. It was supplied with our 2018 Swift Challenger. What a load of rubbish, the worst mattress I've ever known. Had to put this it in the fire pit and buy a new bespoke pocket spring. Man, my health was suffering.
