I picked up my new Puma travel trailer today. My previous Puma was showing its age and it was time for a slightly bigger model. In 2013 we could order specific upgraded items like real material on a sofa instead of plastic. So we upgraded the mattress to a better one and added a topper and all was good.
So I get the new one today with the “upgrade packages” that doesn’t include a better mattress. I look carefully and remove the coverings and it is nothing but plastic packing fibers. What a POS.
I guess I am off to a mattress store very soon.
Call me annoyed.

My assumption is that unless I'm buying something for >50k and they specifically mention something like a Sealy mattress that I'll be replacing what cheap **** the factory included. Actually I'd love to save $50 or whatever the PoS they include costs and just not ship it. That said I actually found a use for mine, my SiL doesn't have a lot of money and one of her kids mattresses had an issue about the same time I bought my trailer so the factory one went to her. The matters may be **** by my standards but it's better than a mattress soiled by a sick dog!

We got a tempur pedic 3" mattress topper for the queen size mattress in our '19 Rockwood.

Cost a few $$, but well worth it.

I replaced the whole mattress in my old trailer and should have just got the topper, because I could have just removed it and used it in the new trailer...

Good luck, Mitch

We just got a new TT and my wife wanted a new residential queen mattress before she even put her behind on the new one. She has a three inch queen "topper" for the present trailer that has the "RV Queen" mattress and we stuff the queen difference in. She was adamant until she saw the price of new mattresses that she wants. So, she is going to try it... Thank goodness. I actually LIKE the feel of the topper/mattress combo.

First night. Not as bad as I thought. We put a good not Temperpedic but good 3” topper on and a cotton mattress pad too. The Queen complained of a headache and stiff neck but that could be from overnight weather change. We have to figure out a comfortable temperature cause it got warm overnight. Only one bedroom window opens up. Not the emergency one. That’s a change too.

A good three inch topper makes a big difference in the comfort level at a fraction of the cost. If you are going to replace the mattress and if it is a standard size you might look into BedInABox. We got one for our home and it’s great. Very lite weight yet provides a nice medium firm foundation with an included topper. If you get one and don’t like it, you call them to arrange a return.

Might want to check the Queen’s choice of pillow.

Zinus brand foam mattresses via Amazon are quite reasonably priced. You can get them in short/RV queen and thin or RV/bunk singles. Got the short queen around $250 and a single bunk one for around $115 or so. I removed the upper bunk entirely. Gave my queen to my daughter to double stack in their toy hauler and the factory bunk mattresses are bagged under our bed at home for resale rebuilding the bunks.

We ditched the factory mattress and bought a new mattress from Brooklyn Bedding. Wow, what a difference. We've both been sleeping great on the new mattress and it sleeps as well as our much more expensive Tempur-Pedic mattress at home!

We bought the 3" topper from COSTCO. It is ok but I would not do it again. It is very soft and you sink in making it difficult to turn over--feels like you are going uphill. Will probably purchase a new mattress in the near future. Looking at the Original Mattress Factory. Neighbor has one and highly recommends them.
