The mattress that came with our new MH as someone else said on a thread "was like sleeping on ball bearings and broken glass" and I couldn't agree more. Have a sleep number bed at home so put one in our MH. Yes they are a bit pricey but I figure I sleep in it about 2 to 3 months a year I want to be comfortable. Plus I like a hard mattress and the DW likes a soft mattress so it works great for us.
If you like your mattress at home see if you can find it in a short queen somewhere.

We are pretty happy with our Select Comfort. But before that we added a Memory Foam matter as topper we got from SAMs or Costco. We did need to trim it to size but for the price it worked well.

We changed our mattress with a memory foam mattress by Angel Bed. Ordered it online and it was shipped to our house. We have put one in the last two RVs we have had. We love them!

We put a regular memory foam Queen size in our 2005 HR and it will compress some with the slide pulled in, not a problem. I would not live without a memory foam bed......S&B and the MH.....

Thom and I have tried the foam, gel and sleep number ..... hated them all. We found what works for us is a Firm Euro Pillow Top. Got our current one from Serta.

My suggestion would be to go and try out all the different types and then decide what works for you.

TemperPedic for us. Had to cut six inches off the end to make it a "short queen" and used a long bread knife. For us a good nights sleep is worth the price of a true TemperPedic!

I had a custom mattress made to the exact size I wanted. They had different options like pillow top, soft firm extra firm. They use a cable along the edge so it you can sit on the edge of the bed without a bar poking you. They make the mattress different when it is used without box springs. I was lucky and lived in near this place (Kansas City, Mo.). But you can order on-line.

Another vote for memory foam mattress (not just a topper). A good memory foam mattress has really increased the quality of our lives. They are easily cut to fit your shorter dimension.

FYI, Angelsbeds actually went out of business last year. They use to be one of our big competitors. It's noted on their BBB page found here:

Sleep Number is the ticket. I've had one in 2 MHs and DW and I love it. Spend at least 5 months a year in our MH on the road. Pricey? Yes, but what's a good nights sleep worth?

As you can see everybody is different. My last two coaches had sleep numbers, they were ripped out ASAP since both of us couldnít find a sleep number that didnít hurt our backs. My solution came from spending 2 weeks at a friendís beach house. We both had the best nightís sleep on the mattress there so we bought one for our house and now for our RVís. They bonus is they make all sizes including short RV queens.


Will it work for you Ė who knows???? Maybe you will love a sleep number bed.

Good Luck.
