I take sleeping very seriously. As the days get longer and the nights get increasingly shorter, the time I have to sleep becomes more precious every day. If I don’t get a solid six hours of quality sleep a night I am irritably, groggy, sore, and basically a drain upon society. That is why choosing a mattress can become a monumental challenge. If I don’t choose a good mattress then I can say ‘good night’ to a good night’s rest, and that does not sit well with me (or my wife for that matter). So when Relief Mart contacted me about testing and reviewing the Tempflow Mattress for RVs and home, you can imagine my hesitation. Before I even took the mattress out of the packaging, I wrote up a list of the qualities I wanted in a mattress, and I decided right then and there that for me to recommend this Tempflow mattress, it would have to meet all these criteria.

Support

I have had my run-ins with lumpy, droopy, hard-as-rock mattresses in the past, and they were not pleasant experiences. So right off the bat, I wanted to make sure that this Tempflow Mattress had the right amount of support so I don’t fold in half, but also have enough to provide comfort. Experts at the Spine Universe research firm state that a mattress should allow the spine to assume its natural curve. Too hard a mattress, and the spine is forced into an unnatural position, but too soft, and the spine sags, and you can experience painful back aches.

Tempflow Mattresses are made from a special Biogreen Memory foam, which cradles you body, and keeps your spine in a natural position. My wife and I laid on the bed, and instantly the memory foam took an impression of our shape, and we sank in. The mattress supported all the bumps, bulges, and curves of our bodies, and it eliminated the rebound pressure of hard springs or rubber that is in a lot of other mattresses. We both laid on mattress for a good bit, and then we both rolled over and said ‘Wow…This is comfortable!”

Airflow

RV8000Many good quality memory foam mattresses are made from very dense foam that doesn’t breathe well, due to its heavy weight and compact cell structure (that is why many foam mattresses feel so ‘dense’ when you lay on them). This leads to ‘night sweating’, of which I am not a fan. I hate waking up in the middle of the night feeling like I just ran the Boston Marathon. So I needed to test whether this Tempflow Mattress with Biogreen memory foam could keep me cool at night. Researching the mattress I discovered that Tempflow mattresses are covered in these little cells that use a patented airflow circulation technology that expels body heat out of the mattress, and circulates cooler air though the layers of the mattress. The mattress even has a bamboo fabric cover that further increases breathe ability.

And those little cells really work! Even though it was memory foam, the mattress stayed cool throughout the night, and we didn’t break a sweat!

Material

My third criterion for the Tempflow mattress was more of an ascetic one. Not only do I want a mattress that is comfortable, but I also want to know that by buying one I am doing right by the environment. I want to be confident that the products I buy will not harm me or harm the environment 20 years from now.

On the ‘green’ front, Tempflow mattress came out on top. The Biogreen Memory Foam contains no harmful chemicals like:

  • PBDE (Harmful fire retardant)
  • TDI (can cause asthma)
  • Boric Acid (Harmful industrial cleaner)
  • Bromine (an oxidizing agent)

All the Tempflow mattresses are hypo-allergenic, environmentally friendly, and non-toxic. Even better, Tempflow is 100% American made. Many other mattress companies say they are ‘American Made’ but purchase their foam or other products from over-seas manufacturers because it is cheaper. But Tempflow uses high-quality American Foam to build a high-quality product. Tempflow is so sure about how the build their mattresses, the offer a LIFETIME warranty on them. A LIFETIME! That is quite a long period of time (unless you like to sky dive or bungee jump a lot). The fact that Relief Mart—who is an industry leader in pain relief, comfort management, and memory foam products—carries Tempflow mattresses also gave me piece of mind about the product as well.

Tempflow MattressI admit that at first, I was incredibly skeptical about replacing my old mattress with any ‘new’ mattress. But I had to eat humble pie this time, because the Tempflow mattress was one of the most comfortable mattresses I have ever slept on. If you don’t believe me, try it for yourself. Be warned though—you will fall in love with this mattress!

    If you want to complete the package, especially in the RV, you should try the
    E-Zzz Sleep Pillowcase – especially if you are ever in cooler climates. Their website is the name of the product, altogether, and dot com.

    Couldn’t seem to find andthing called Tempflow mattress at Relief Mart web site.

  3. Gary on August 2nd, 2011 7:25 pm

    IN THIS INSTANCE IT SOUNDS VERY MUCH LIKE A REGULAR COMMERCIAL BECAUSE, AND I SAY BECAUSE, THERE SEEMS TO BE NO PRICE ATTACHED TO IT. I REALIZE THAT PRICES DO VARY DEPENDING UPON SHIPPING DISTANCE BUT JUST A GENERAL IDEA WOULD BE GOOD. SENT FOR A MATTRESS FROM OVERSOCKED.COM FOR 400 BUCKS AND REALLY GLAD WE DID. BEATS THE COILSPRING EVERY TIME. BUT, IT IS HARD IN THE CENTER. BUT THE DOG SLEEPS THERE ANYWAY, SO…. WILLING TO TRY ANOTHER .. $, size, thickness, etc. LIKE THE ‘COOL’ PART, BUT YOU GOT YOURS FOR FREE. CHEATER !!!!!!!!!! GLAD YOU ARE HAPPY.?.?.

    Sounds like it could be expensive. I bough a 3″ memory foam mattress top for my Lance camper queen bed, from COSTCO for about $150., a fews years back and it improved the bed situation considerably including stopping the base from robbing heat from my body as there is very little insulation on the floor of the bed area in a Lance camper.. Since then I’ve transferred this memory foam topper to my Travel Trailer and use it on top of the quite thin mattress and the improvement is considerable again. Might be as less expensive alternative.

    Call me cynical but after reading this post, it seems nothing more than a very clever advertisement with no discernable connection to RVing with the exception that campers like everyone else sleep. I am disappointed, at myself actually, for being duped by this self-proclaimed experiment. Gee, what is next a posting for cookware untensils or perhaps a Ginsu knife, after all campers and RVers eat too!

  6. doug on August 2nd, 2011 11:50 pm

    No tempflow in relief mart site. No name of author of article. No pricing on tempflow site. All negatives in my book.

  7. Ed on August 3rd, 2011 12:33 am

    Went to Tempflow web site and they only offer 20-30 year warranty.

  8. Tom Morley on August 3rd, 2011 2:44 am

    Sorry to see you stoop to info-mercials in place of really good and helpful information.

  9. Jon on August 3rd, 2011 6:45 am

    Sounds like duck, walks, like a duck, quacks like it duck…then it’s a DUCK! When we bought our motorhome it had a cheap mattress. We had a great mattress in the house that we really loved. We had bought it where my wife works. So we had the manufacture just make a short queen to fit the motorhome. Now we sleep on the same mattress just a shorter version. So we feel like we are sleeping in the same bed. Makes for a great nights sleep!

  10. hockeyguy on August 3rd, 2011 7:37 am

    I also bought a topper from Costco a couple of years ago. It works great and is very comfortable. I just put it on top of the orignal mattress. Only issue is that it is a little larger , about 3 inches longer than the original but it doesn’t cause any real trouble. I suppose that I could cut it but I have not yet been bothered enough to do it. It does add some weight to the lifting for the storage but I usually only need to get into to get blankets once a trip.

  11. Geoffrey Pruett on August 3rd, 2011 8:50 am

    Understand the sleep need, when I am deprived the whole world is in my way! Right now am waiting an eternity for carpal tunnel surgery (5 days is an eternity) so that I do not wake up with a useless club at the end of my arm. We found a short memory foam pad at Target which makes our already firm enough unit just fine. Not our first add on but this one has a bottom surface like a towel or wash cloth and does not crawl around on the mattress. Your testimony sounds good but leaving out the price and dealer info does not. It is state fair time but the pitch men are only allowed in certain area’s. Did not think this was one of them.

  12. Fritz on August 3rd, 2011 9:35 am

    It made me think a little after reading the article and post’s by other campers. My wife and I had a Comfort number bed for over 5 years at home. We enjoyed being able to select our own level or firmness, Wife usually around 35 and mine, around 60. We recommended this bed to at least a half dozen friends, who all 6 months later thanked us. I have a Alfa motorhome and it came with a good mattress, now 5 years old and still working. I will switch to a rv number bed when we change out. Beds are a personal choice and one can get stung for a lot of money with a high priced an uncomfortable rack. Good luck in choosing the right one. Fritz

    Mr. Pruett
    make sure you really need surgery.
    ten years ago i was diagnosed with severe carpel tunnel in right wrist. After talking to a few people who had surgery, decided not to have surgery. After about a year, no more pain or tingling.
    This year, after knee surgery,was talking to doc’s assistant, told him about my wrist.
    Was tested again, pretty bad, talked to doctor, told him it still wasn’t hurting, he asked about my grip. Showed him no problem. He said no surgery.

  14. Judie Rose on August 3rd, 2011 12:52 pm

    I have had both the select comfort and a memory foam. I like them both but in a camper the elevation affects the airbed. I like a firmer mattress and so you have to research to find the memory foam to match what you want. All memory foams are not alike. I have had two from the same maker and one had ridges within 4 years from breakdown the other one is great it is but 8″ the other was 12″. the thinner one is firmer and cooler. Research before you buy, is the only thing that I can say. BTW I understand why you wrote this particular article It is for Information not to sell it. If any of you belong to GS you see where someone is sent an item for evaluation and is asked to write a comment. DON’T BE SO NEGATIVE, LIFE IS TOO SHORT. Enjoy everything you can and learn something new everyday. God Bless each of you.

    As the author of the above post I wanted to take a minute to clarify a few things for those who may have mistaken the reason for this post.
    I apologize for not including my name in the body. I was hoping that the pictures of adorable wife would be a testament to me being a real, live person, and not some disembodied commercial voice. This post was not to be a commercial, but a review of an RV product that I would recommend. Just because there are Tempflow mattresses for “tied down” homes, doesn’t mean that you can’t use the Tempflow RV mattress as well. But it is a product for RVs as well. And if there was a special knife or food that I enjoy taking with me camping, I would probably write an article about that as well. What I love about our community is that people can share tips, recipes, trips, attractions, and products that are useful for everybody.
    For more information about the Tempflow mattress, you can visit their site at http://www.Tempflow.com
    I chose not to put mattress prices in my recommendation because I felt that was “commercial.” And Tempflow has a lot of different sizes and styles of mattresses–no room to put prices anywhere in the post!

    Thanks to the author for the article!

    For example, I’d like to tell about my feelings after buying a normal mattress and a bed, I’ve begun to feel great, I just can’t find a word. I do not have a back pain anymore. My wife also likes it. About any bugs, spiders and bugs – here I can only say that it’s a normal mattress. Incidentally this is one of the options I have such a mattress and a bed. http://leggettandplattadjustablebeds.com

    Well, thanks very much for all those people who create things like this!
