All of what you have posted makes perfect sense ..... To you. The title of this thread asks should I replace or add to the current sofa bed mattress. Our MH gets used in a few different scenarios. We camp alone. We camp with family and we attend races. All of these situations require different sleeping needs. When alone the sofa bed is a sofa. With family or friends we can go with the couch, the bed and or the table. When doing NASCAR we need beds. Our company don't need or want to sleep on the floor. We are not full timers so the extra storage space isn't a necessity. Great project but does nothing to solve my question of what others have done to improve the sleeping comfort.

Our answer was to purchase an inflatable (the first was too high) that is about 6" and both inflates and deflates electrically. One of the great things here is to leave the mattress that came with the couch and just place this on top so that when deflated you can leave it on and it still folds up. Very comfortable even for a big guy.

I have an Air Dream Ultra in my sofa/sleeper. It's very comfortable, takes about 2 minutes to inflate or deflate. It has a mattress on the bottom and a replaceable air bladder for the top that is inserted into the mattress cover. I've had to replace the bladder and that was a lot cheaper than replacing the entire ensemble. You can check them out (as well as other options) at Sleeper Sofa Mattress- Mattresses for Sofa Beds- Sleeper Sofa Mattress Replacement which is where I bought my replacement bladder.

Soooo ....... After finally being able to uncover the bus and get into it I find that the mattress that is on the sofa bed is about 52 X 70. I have yet to do a lot of research on this but most everything I've seen is 75 in length. Any ideas where I can find a topper/air mattress in this size ???

A foam topper can be shortened with a scissors or utility knife.

That probably won't work with an air bed.

Don't the toppers come in an encasement ?

We bought a 1-1/2" memory foam topper at Walmart for 59.00. It was only the foam piece. We cut it down with an electric carving knife. Fits perfect, folds up nice and neat in the couch and comfortable to sleep on. Our quests have never complained.
We did purchase a water proof mattress cover just in case the young child had an accident. Really works!
