I though DOT regs required that a mattress used in a motorhome had to meet certain flame retardency standards. Regardless of the regs I would not put in any mattress in a motorhome that was not certified as flame retardent.
This from the Select Comfort web site: "Starting January 1, 2005 a new California fire-safety law entitled Technical Bulletin 603 (TB 603) will be in effect for all mattresses and bed sets shipped to California. Sleep Number® mattresses and bed sets shipped to California will incur a surcharge for the related additional component materials. Mattresses and bed sets complying with TB 603 are available for purchase by all customers regardless of geography, with the exception of the California code-compliant Precision Comfort® Adjustable Foundation. All Sleep Number® mattresses and bed sets sold by Select Comfort meet or exceed current national standards set forth in the Federal Flammability Standard 16 CFR 1632 (FF 4-72)."
This doesn't directly address the question about RV fire standards, but I am unfamiliar with the concept that they are more stringent than home fire standards for upholstered furniture and beds.
