We will be picking up our new to us travel trailer next week. When we looked at it, it had just been traded in and was not cleaned up yet. My wife is concerned (as I am but not as much!) about the bunk and double mattresses. She is wanting to replace them. Where would I look to find replacements? What advice do you guys have in this area? Can they be covered? I appreciate the help. Thanks!

When we bought our fiver it came with a factory queen bed. Last year when we replaced the mattress in our stick house we made a deal to get the exact same mattress for the fiver. So no matter where we are sleeping it is the same bed. I would suggest that after you get the trailer home. go out and measure the beds and then go shopping for new bedding. As a last resort there are tons of companies around that make custom sizes of mattresses.

Camper World sells a good matress, or various toppers depending on what you see when you take delivery.

We just got our new mattress from a place called Bed Dr. Found it on eBay motors and recommended by a friend that had bought one earlier. We got the Cloud 5.3, 9 inch memory foam and it is great! It is 4 layers of foam that you can arrange to suit your sleeping needs. The company was also great to deal with. My paypal account got screwed up so I had to send them a check. They sent the mattress before they even got my check. Now that's service!

No connection to the company other than a happy customer.

A happy wife is a quiet wife. Do what you need to do to make her happy and you sane. My wife was content with a 4" memory foam topper over the mattress in our slightly used TT. Works for me.

We bought a 4 inch memory foam topper for our queen bed in the TT and it's wonderful!! We sleep better in the camper than we do in our own bed at home!!

When we bought our used camper, it had a strange (non-standard) bed (a shortened queen). We chose a Walmart "Bed in a Box" - a reasonably priced memory foam mattress that I was able to easily cut down to the proper size. We find it's more comfortable than the $1000+ memory foam matress in the house.
