hide-a-bed sofa air mattress

I have a 2009 Challenger with the hide-a bed sofa with an air mattress that leaks from an "unknown location". I wish to replace the air mattress. Does anyone have any suggestions as to where I can locate a mattress?

Xfed, try here Sofa Sleeper Replacement Mattress, Air Dream: Air over coil-air spring coil mattress. I had one in my 2000 Adventurer and it worked great.

Yes... I had three air mattresses. The company was very nice and replaced them, but after the third, I took out the air mattress bladder and placed a 1 1/2" foam queen size insert into the cover (I think we got it from Target). Works great and no more leaks..

What happens is the air bladder will start leaking around the seam. Even soapy water doesn't show it (We tried). The other area prone to leaks is the snap fill flap. The replacement air bladder (queen) is $100.00 if not under warranty.

The air mattress spring and bladder enclosure works great with a foam insert. All you gotta do is pull out the air bladder and put the foam mattress in it. Not too thick though, since it has to fold and close.

It is sooooooo much better not having to blow that thing up and let the air out to close. To us, the air mattress was a downgrade.

Soapy water

I tried everything to find the leak. Even had my son sit on it in the pool while I kept the pump out of the water. I may try the air mattress one more time. How do I contact the company?

Sammie, is that air over coil not too thick to fold-up in the sofa?

From a previous post:

Xfed, try here Sofa Sleeper Replacement Mattress, Air Dream: Air over coil-air spring coil mattress. I had one in my 2000 Adventurer and it worked great.

We tried several times to find the seam leak as well. Nada... But it was there

The air over coil folds nicely into the sofa when fully deflated, but different sofas may require different folding beds. The one we have is a Flex-Steel.

Once the air has been let out, the sofa folded up fine. The coils are not wire but are sort of like soft air pockets spaced evenly all over the mattress
