I have a 2018 starcraft satellite with a short queen. I'm looking to upgrade from the "plush mattress" that came with the trailer - it is definitely not plush to us.

Neither of us are petite people. My wife has back issues. Our current home mattress is a sleep number bed, we both sleep around 60-65 setting.

I've been reading up on reviews for short queen mattress and seems a few brands consistently popup. I've looked and sleep number bed is over 1500, a bit out of our budget, so we're looking for alternatives. Many of the ones we have found are on either too firm (we think too firm for us) or too soft - from reading the reviews.

I'd much appreciate if anyone can provide input.

Our current mattress is only good for max 3 day trip. I'm hoping to do week long trips in the near future.

Thanks!

Foam Factory
The foam factory has foam in various densities and can make it to what ever dimension.

You already have a SleepNumber. Get one made for your RV.

The absolute best mattress that nobody has heard of is Verlo. www.verlo.com We have two twins at home and two slightly narrower ones on board.

Have you considered a foam mattress topper? We take the one off our home bed every time we camp and it makes a significant difference

We added a good foam topper, about 4" thick to the mattress. That made all the difference in the world. I think we got it at Sam's Club. The topper was longer than the RV queen but they are easy to cut to fit. The additional height of the bed we had to get a small step stool for my wife to get up into the bed. My wife and I are also not of the petite group.

Verlo seems to be same realm as sleep number, bit expensive.

I never really thought about a custom mattress and wasn't aware original mattress factory did that.

We have a topper on the existing mattress, 3" i think, it helps but not much.

Thanks for the input all!

I'm not exactly what you would call petite at 260 pounds. We just replaced our mattress with:

Zinus

My DW is quite a bit smaller than me. We both like it having slept on it 10 nights. It is a little firmer than I expected, but that has not been a problem.

We replaced ours with a Zinus 12" foam. If we did it again would get the 10". It would be a little more firm. Tried the mattress topper made it too soft. Wasted our money. Live and learn.
