New Standard Size Queen Memory Foam Mattress

I have a 2006 National Dolphin and I would like to replace the existing standard size ( 60 x 80) mattress with a new 8 inch memory foam. I am limited to an 8 inch thickness as my bed slides under the BR closets by a few inches when the slide is in the travel mode. I am looking for suggestions on the best brand of this size mattress that others have purchased or have experience with. I have looked online at thousands of brands and am getting confused and over whelmed, so I would appreciate any inputs based on others experience. I know from reading several comments on this forum that many people have gone to their local mattress stores to purchase a mattress, but every local store I have visited does not carry the 8 inch size and I will be buying one online. Thanks very much for any suggestions and input.

Try Walmart.com. We got a great deal on a new memory foam mattress from them.
Picked it up from local store.

We have a natural Latex foam rubber mattress at home and in our MH. You can get the exact density that feels comfortable to you. Ours is three inches thick. I also bought a latex foam rubber topper -2 inches thick- little less dense than the mattress. I searched online for a zippered cover. These mattresses resist mold, mildew and bed bugs. They also breathe well. Our home mattress has a 30 year warranty. Although these are relatively thin, they are very dense and hold up well. I would suggest you test one out yourself.

Look at mattressinsider.com , they are/were an iRV sponsor. We bought a pocketed coil type of mattress from them 3 years ago and have been completely happy. They specialize in RV and other specialty mattresses.

X2. Really like ours. When we bought current rig it was a deal breaker if they wouldn't let us swap and keep it. The Kool-Jell is really nice.

I'm in the market myself for a queen. The Dynasty mentioned looks pretty good and I also hear good things about the Denver Mattress Supreme Eurotop. The 8" restriction however would not work with those 2 as I think the Dynasty is 10" and the Denver Mattress 11".

There are a lot of great suggestions here. I will add IKEA as a good source for memory foam mattresses.
