Next up on my list of Lippert Component (LCI) RV product reviews is the new Thomas Payne dual foam mattress. The mattress is specially designed for RVs.  It comes in the various sizes RVs may require like, for instance, short queen, short king, and narrow king.

A new RV mattress has been on the wishlist for a while now, but we have kept putting it off, making do with the old OEM spring mattress and foam toppers. The new 10″ Thomas Payne mattress will be a welcome upgrade, I’m sure.

Disclaimer: Love Your RV! received this LCI product sample free of charge for the install and review.

Possible Cons for Some People:

  • Might too firm for soft mattress lovers
  • Could have used a little thicker memory foam layer
  • Not Made in the USA
  • Taller than many OEM RV mattresses


After using the new Thomas Payne mattress for several nights, both my wife Anne and I are most pleased. It’s a vast improvement over the OEM spring type mattress. The first night I did find it a touch firm, but over the next few nights, it has softened up as the foam has expanded fully. We both do like a reasonably firm mattress, so believe it’s going to be a winner for us.

Even though it was quite warm in the RV last night at bedtime, the mattress remained comfortable. I’m not that light weighing around 200 lbs, but the thick foam easily supports my weight. I’ll be sure to update this post if we run into any issues and will have an update to the review done the road after more extensive usage.
