New Mattress for TT

We're new to this site and are sure that this subject has been talked about alot but we recently bought a used TT & want to update the mattress for the bed, which is a 3/4 size. We are leaning towards a memory foam or some type of a foam mattress. We found a traditional mattress in the 3/4 size but it is too high (thickness is 10"). We are limited - in a corner & thickness wise. So, would like to hear from others who may have tried some type of foam and where did you order it from. What options do we have in types of foam - different thicknesses, etc. for a 3/4 sized bed. Thanks in advance!

We had to buy a queen size foam mattress for our teardrop and best price in exactly what we wanted came from Foam Factory Conventional Mattress - Soft, Medium & Firm Foam Mattress, Beds.
Friends did not like what came in their new TT and bought one, also happy. We bought a 5" conventional foam, I did not want memory foam.

I have read several threads about people using this memory foam topper. It is inside a zip up cover, but many say you dont need the cover and that you can simply cut the foam to fit. I belive I will bite the bullet and get one.

We glued memory foam toppers together to get just what we wanted. I think we ended up using three of them because one of them was actually some very soft regular foam with only a very thin layer of memory foam on top - almost useless. We bought at least two of them from Overstock.com where the shipping is a flat rate no matter what you buy. Also, they charged the same for any size of topper, so we bought the largest ones and had enough foam left over to make cushions.
