I replaced my short queen with a custom mattress I think 4" longer but not the full queen length due to space. Works perfect, love it. Custom sheets to match.

I was going to do the same for the bunk. Was a few $$ more than CW so DW, who mostly just sees only the price, insisted on CW. Custom sheets fit perfect but the 8" short mattress for the space is really dumb IMO. Get the custom size.

Is there anything special about the mattresses in an RV?

Can i just buy one from a mattress store?


You can buy from where ever you want to, as long as what you get fits the space occupied by your current mattress.

Measure it.
Standard queen is 60x80
RV Queen is usually 60x74 or 75
Then there's mattresses with angled corners.

Three new travel trailers ago, my DW hated the mattress that came with the unit. We went to the local mattress factory (Verlo) and had them make one to our specifications (RV Queen). It has been one of the best investments we ever made (Happy Wife – Happy Life). We just purchased a new TT and made the dealer swap mattresses as part of the deal.

Just buy the same bed you have at home. That is what I did...

Another vote for the Zinus 8” “bed-in-a-bag”. We immediately replaced our factory short Queen with one from Amazon and loved it so much, we then ordered a 10” Zinus full Queen for our home! We are now in our 2nd TT with the same mattress, after telling them to keep the factory mattress, even though the mattress is now 2 years old.
As mentioned elsewhere, if you get a bed-in-a-bag/box, follow the instructions completely to unpack, you’ll be glad you did.

We completely replaced our queen size mattress with one made by “Allswell” , somewhat expensive and heavy but very comfortable. I had to reinforce the wood underneath by adding 2 additional wood cross members and had to buy 2 new gas rams designed for more weight so when you accessed the storage underneath the bed would stay up.

I suspect a bed upgrade is in my near future. Our TT has a king bed. Before I go too far down this path, will a king mattress fit through the door? Thx!
