Hybrid bunk ends

We bought a 2005 forest river surveyor 233t and love it. The only thing that sucks is the queen bunk end. It has a bump in it where the hinge attaches. Yes, they compensated with the mattress for that spot but it's like trying to sleep on a 2x4. Any suggestions as how to remedy this.

How high or thick is this bump?

If you go to a fabric store they have slabs of foam in different thicknesses. You could cut a piece to fit the space and make the mattress level.

The mattress gets thicker to compensate for the hump. The mattress is level, just the hump lines up with the damn seam in the mattress.

What about laying down a piece of small sized bubble wrap over the hinge area. We do a lot of shipping. They make different grades of bubble wrap. I think a good quality bubble wrap will hold up.

Or, I had some 3/16" thick closed cell foam....it's very dense, but very flexible...

We have the same problem with our 21' Coachman hybrid. We cut a piece of memory foam to bridge the gap. The foam helped but did not eliminate the problem. We then tried queen blow up mattresses but didn't like the banana effect.
We are still working on the problem.
