The Original Mattress Factory stores can custom make any size mattress. They have stores in the Orlando area, which is the closest to you. While not very convenient, it may be worth the drive to actually see, feel, and lay on different mattresses before buying and custom manufacturing. I have bought multiple mattresses from them over several decades, and have always been quite satisfied.

when we needed a new mattress, there was(is?) a mattress factory over close in Jackson, TN. we went there, and they made up one especially to fit out MH. The salesman also owned an RV,so he knew exactly what we wanted. As our bed in that MH was in the center, he knew that we would be sitting on the bottom edge, and less often on the sides, so he built extra support on the bottom edge, and a bit more on the side. At the factory sales floor, we got to try our every style and firmness they sould make, and selected exactly what we wanted. Two days later, we went back over and his men installed it and removed the old one for us. And it still cost a lot less than store retail. So look around the local area, and on the internet for a mattress company in your area. Mattresses are expensive to ship, so many areas have local manufacturers.

I looked on the Internet and at a map, and based on the city in your profile, there are a good number of custom mattress factories within 50 miles of you. Check them out, and get exactly want you want.

A few years ago we ordered a short queen on overstock. It was a firm foam and we put a 2" memory foam topper on top of that. It is actually more comfortable than the bed at home.

We have used two bed-in-a-box and been quite satisfied. We so missed our tempurpedic that we recently changed to one of them. We full time so finally bit the bullet. No foundation was needed because 6 months ago I installed an adjustable frame. It took some modifications but it sure is nice.

Even if you have a short queen you might be able to use a regular size. Things could be a bit tight but might be worth measuring.

We have to raise the end of the bed before pulling the sides in. Just a bit but it is electric so not an issue.

Sleep number didn't work well for us, but luckily we found a company at the Tampa RV show last year that makes custom mattresses that fit your pedestal exactly. We just measured and sent them the measurements and they delivered a mattress a few weeks later. This is only worth it if you full-time.

The mattress that came with our Coachmen was like sleeping on a pool table. We bought a Zinus bed-in-a-box from Amazon, and couldn't be more pleased with it. They are available in queen or RV queen.

Note that if you have room to extent the bed platform, a regular length queen is usually cheaper than a short queen, and your feet won't hang over the end of the bed.
