I bought a mattress from Ikea, for a little more than $200, and I'm very happy with it. If there is an Ikea near where you live, I'd suggest you go check them out before you shell out too much for a mattress.

After all, a mattress is a mattress, but an RV mattress is a mattress in an RV.

Thanks, but a RV Queen is 5 inches shorter than a reg. Queen, and we like the extra walk around room at the end of the bed.

I'm 6' 3", so I needed the length. No, not everyone is as tall as I am.

I hope you get your answer soon.

I've bought several memory foam mattresses from Amazon for my RVs and house. Love them. We prefer the former models, not the ones you sink into. On our new MH is a 1-year old King mattress. We're buying a 4" thick memory foam topper to go in it. It's an RV King, so it's like 6"shorter than a regular King. We'll have to trim the topper to fit. I've read electric carving knives work well on this

Close enough at 6'2" tall.

I've also got a Queen Size in my RV but its a True Queen. No problems with walking around the bed either.

A matter of fact I just spent $600 bucks on my new mattress for here at home. I just took a perfect $150 dollar mattress to the dump.

I need a new mattress too. This is my first RV and was surprised how crappy the one that came with it was. I just assumed I could measure my current one, go to the mattress store, and get the same size. Amazon is a good idea.

We like the sleep number so much, after we bought one for the house, we purchased one for the TT. It isn't cheap but it is worth the extra for a great nights sleep.

Before we even took delivery of our current 5er in 2014, a brand new $$$ Beautyrest mattress was installed. It is a full sized queen, but we had used similar back when we had a TT with an RV Queen. That platform was extended so I could sleep without dangling my feet overboard (I'm 6'4"), we gave up a little walk around space as the BR isn't used 24/7, only about 6-8 hours a day. There are at least as many mattress options with a full size version as there are mattress stores since they usually label their own 'spec' and name even on the 'national' brand names.

Get the mattress that feels best for both you and your sleeping partner - and a 'net purchase isn't always right.

Cheap mattress, light mattress, cheaper air springs to lift beds with under bed storage. Don't have under-bed storage? No problem they saved money on you also.

I removed the old coil spring queen mattress from the RV and purchased a Cool Max Memory Foam mattress from THIS company on the Internet with free shipping PLUS a 100 day full Money Back Guarantee if not satisfied.

They have many different sizes to choose from and will also make any custom sizes that you may need.

That was the summer of 2014 and it's been wonderful.
