short queen bed

I have read posts about short queen beds and some solutions such as using a body pillow at top to slide mattress down or creating a narrower pillow to access more mattress. Are all queen beds short? I saw a listing with a custom queen but not sure what that meant. Any tips for spotting a longer one or is there such animal??

No, they are not all short. I just know that Winnebago had these in some of the gasser models. I've seen them in a few other floor plans but I don't think that the majority of queens are short. Most RV queens are 60X80 but the short queen is 60X75...my toes felt it. LOL

This is what we did. I was in the same position you are in two years ago except we were not going to sell the house. I found a man in Pa. who had a MH and wanted a streetrod and I just happened to have an extra. The MH was a 2000 Seabreeze and the car was a 1929 model A that I built, this was a very nice car. Any way we made a even trade and both sides were happy. We took the two years to make the MH our own. I retired in Jan. of this year and my wife and I had planed to start our cross country trip on April 4th. As our luck would have it, my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer the week after I retired, so the trip has been postponed for awhile. I guess the moral of the story is to do it soon as you can, we never know what life will bring us. Hope your search for a MH turns out well and pray for my sweetie. Oh by the way I was also a carpenter for 40 years. Good luck on search and your travels.

Oh, I am so sorry for you both. What a kicker! Hope DW is coming along, be it with chemo, radiation or whatever. Sounds like Life dealt you an unexpected challenge but perhaps daydreaming about road trips is something else to fill your days. Hope you both can make that happen. God bless!

Didn't mean to hijack this thread but thanks guys for your prayers. She will come through this like everything else in life. We will just postpone trip for a year.
