Replacing a 58" sofa bed mattress

Looking for feedback from anyone who has replaced their sofa bed mattress.
Our sofa bed measures 50" x 69" inside the tubular frame. Assuming that would take a standard 53" x 72" mattress. Will a 5" thick mattress compress enough to allow it to close?
Any recommendations for suppliers?

Not actually done it but would talk with the folks at foam mattress slow recovery, memory foam, latex matresses, toppers, camping pads, eggcrate convoluted foam,
My bet is they can come up with something that will work well.

I've done it. I replaced the original skinny foam pad with a 5 inch foam mattress. Compressed fine for closing, but I still felt the tube frame when sleeping. I then added a 3 inch foam topper - still no joy. I finally found this mattress at
Air Dream Mattress - Sofa Sleeper Replacement Mattress

Air mattress over coil spring. it fits perfectly and inflates and deflates in less than a minute. I have several friends say that it is the best they have slept on, and will get one for their home. Reasonably priced and a great warranty.. I would do it again..

Our current coach has a queen air mattress (not # type) and it is wonderful. electric motor blows it to were you like and then it sucks the air out flat to fold with no problem.

We have one of these on our sleeper sofa at home and our guests /love/ it. I had to sleep on it after a severly sprained ankle last year that left me unable to walk up the stairs for a week, and I couldn't have been more comfortable. Highly recommend.

Thanks for all the feedback. I really like the Air Dream mattress idea, but based on the weird size of this sofa sleeper...50"x69", I am probably going to have to go with a custom foam mattress.

Thanks again.

Check out American Leather sleeper sofa. We have one in a small one room condo and they are very comfortable. I would get the Tempra pedic topper. There is no bar and the dont take up as much room. They are pricey but very comfortable We will replace the couch in the MH when its needed.
