do they live up to their hype?

Our old mattress, which we retired years ago is actually on SlugBoys/ the spare bed and is stillmore comfy than our current one. We went for a medium/firm rather than firm and it really has not lasted - I don't think even several layers of toppers would even out the mountain in the middle which dips down the the valleys where both of us sleep. 

We'd really like to try before we buy so it looks as if we have some trawling around to do.

Tempur advertise that you can try for a month before you buy, but I don't know what the ramifications would be if you tried and then didn't buy.

 It's a combination of a sprung mattress with a foam topper built in.  I have just the mattress on my own metal bedstead.

+1 for sprung mattress with foam topper.  I love my bed .

Thinking about  a topper for the campervan

Had one for 5 years, would never go back to 'normal' one and I don't find it hot in the summer

 from a technical point of view (and for your back) you should find it helps. memory foam by nature is designed to mould around your body shape, this means that your body is under no 'peak pressure' strain enabling the muscles to relax

another +1 for the sprung matress with the foam bit on top.  Can't remember what make it is, got it in the sales last year and it's amazing.
