We just replaced ours with a full queen memory foam 8" thick

bed in a box from wal-mart cost of $398 (Canadian)

so what was nice is that you wrestle the old mattress out then the new memory foam is shrink wrapped in plastic( so its just 3' long by about a foot around ) just put on your bed open let it expand .

This is a VERY comfortable mattress, Highly recommend


Ditto: Bed-in-a-box. We have two of them and my neighbors bought one too.

Slightly off topic, but one of those damned-if-you-do; damned-if-you-don't stories.

We had an Outback with a "Short" 76" queen. We got a 2 1/2" foam topper at BJs and used the electric carving knife (great for cutting any knid of upolstry foam, by the way) to trim it to the same length as the bed. Slept great. Best improvement we ever made to a trailer.

Six months later we had the chance to trade up to our current Titanium. Started transfering all our "stuff" over to the new trailer, including the foam topper. Guess what size the new bed is?

We have not yet figured out how to reattach the 4" cut-off.

Oh well !!!!!

Slightly off the topic some more. Has anyone tried an Air Bed? Also, what to do with the crappy mattress on a Flexsteel hide-a-bed couch? Have thought of replacing the mattress with a 2-3 inch foam pad and use a Queen size Air Mattress but I'm worried about the metal frame and supports

When we had a queen size bed in one of our other fivers, we custom ordered a short queen from a mattress store. It took a few weeks to come in and it was worth the wait. Still cost us over 500 bucks tho.

This is what we did. Ask around, some mattress places will do customs. Cost us a extra $50, but they made both the length and height to our spec.

Replaced our 60x80 crappy RV mattress in the bedroom slide or our 5ver with a residential pillowtop mattress last year with no issues.
New mattress is exactly the same size as the old one just about 4 inches higher. Old thin mattress went under bedroom cabinet on opposite wall from bed slide. With slide out closed top of new mattress presses on cabinets to a minimal degree. Not enough to damage either the cabinets or the mattress.



Same here. Jim

x3, Much better bed and we have a bedroom side and its not a problem cause the foam just presses against the cabinet.

We pulled the air mattress insert out and replaced it with a 4 inch bed-in-a-box topper.

Dometic newslink

Dometic has partnered with Serta to make RV mattresses. There is a place on website to find a dealer.

We went to a Denver Mattress store and bought a replacement. They also make RV sizes.
