We could not justify the the new over price bed replacement. We purchased a 4" gel topper from kohls on sale 50% off, then used a 20% coupon on top of the that. It the best sleeping bed. It hard to get up early in the morning.

Our new to us MH came with a new Denver Mattress pillow top RV Queen! I am 6'3" so it was a little short, so we did as another poster said, slid it away from the wall 3 to 4"s. It stayed put and was very comfortable! Do not know how much it cost? Sorry? Rail!

Well, DW and I tried the sleep number, posterpedic and some others. After all that we found the same quality or at least enough to not care with Bobs memory queen. I had back surgery and I sleep fine on that and it cost 1/3 of the big name....

Keep in mind, its all a matter of individual taste and experience. So, no bashing my choice....

We just bought a new to us class A at Lazy Days in Tampa, before we made a deal we upgraded to the mattress they sell in the store. They offered a unit on sale for $350, and one at $500,,, we went with the $500 mattress. I couldn't tell the difference, but the wife liked the better mattress. I must admit, it sleeps very well.

Sorry, don't recall the name on the mattress.

When we bought our new 2013 Dutchman (Aerolite) RV the factory mattress were so bad, the warranty dept. said go out and spend up to $300 on toppers on our dime. So they must have known what they supplied was crap. It was for a hybrid, so we needed two toppers. Ended up getting two off Amazon for $250. Picture cutting the toppers to fit

Not sure if you have one in your area, but we purchased a full size memory foam queen mattress at Steinhafel's for $300.00. Best purchase so far for our TT.

While I am only just over 6ft. The room on a the bed was tight since we were use to a king size bed. Since the Dog things she needs a space at the foot of the bed... urg...

Well I extended the length of the better a little. Then built a 8 inch wide filler to go at the head of the bed. This force our pillows over the filler give a few more inches on a short RV bed.

I just posted that we LOVE our new Brentwood Home 13" cool gel memory foam mattress. It was $600 for an rv king so a queen would be less $. Free shipping too.

We went over to a mattress store. For a little over three hundred dollars, we found a queen size mattress. I had to modify the original deck under the old mattress, but was well worth the time and money spent.

We also went to a mattress store and they offered to order a special cut to fit our RV queen for an extra $100 per cut. We settled (so far) for a memory foam from Wally World.
