I agree with clyon51, we purchased a new mattress from Excel Mattress and it's wonderful and the cost was very reasonable, it's just like a home mattress. We use a heated mattress pad for cooler weather and love it. You can't go wrong.

I am getting a custom 70 by 80 king made for my 2012 Keystone Alpine 3600RS. There is a local company called original mattress in Charlotte NC that will custom make any size and rounded corners for RV's i just got a quote for that one for about 675.00 picked up at the store. I highly recommend getting one made for your bedroom to replace the one that comes in the units. One other option is hinging the boxsprings so that you can fold it in half to get it in place.

For others that may read this thread...
we tried two different memory foam toppers and the DW was still not so darling

Went to sleep experts and got the same memory foam mattress as we have at home sans box springs and it's PURRFECT now...

was 2 to 2.5 times thicker than the king that was there, but fit AND worked out well in our location !

Looking at the before & after pics, it doesn't seem that the new one is angled like the old one? Isn't that what would make it custom? The new just looks like a standard mattress that fits the area, not angled.

Our RV's have always given us the best beds there were....
but...

As for the "supposed memory foam" what that means is it will remember that your ass is your heaviest part, and will automatically position it several inches lower than the rest of you....

without any further discussion on which parts are heaviest... I hate memory foam, it makes my back hurt. I need a good quality firm support matress which will lift my heaviest part just a bit.....

On our 2000 DSDP the standard mattress wan't very good, we stuck with it till we ordered the present 2002. Then opeted for the optional pillow top mattress, cost a few $100 extra but was well worth it.

The "after" photo is a slightly different viewpoint. You can't see that "angled" corner, but it would have to be to fit in that space. The wall is angled there.

It is angled but not quite as much. One reason is because the coils in the bed has 3 inch coils. Its angled enough to allow the bathroom door to open almost as much as it did before. We lost maybe a inch.

I will take another picture tomorrow with a better view of the fit.

Correct, exactly why they sell all different color cars and houses - we all have different wants

the memory remembers it's original shape so it DOESN'T fail like a regular mattress does over time (and has on even the best 'regular' mattress for us)

And since Mama is happy now, it works for us !

IOHO, we want the mattress to not be like sleeping on the floor and 'give' a bit to allow our spine to be straighter no matter which position we sleep in.

I know how you are feeling about your back. I have a bad back so I bought a memory gel topper from COSTCO that has just been a dream!! It is with no doubt the best sleeper I have ever had. A good mattress is a wonderful thing!!

Can anyone recommend a good suppler for RV mattresses. My unit has a cut corner so it will need to be tailored custom.

Thanks in advance.
I agree with the perfect Harmony Mattress topper. I have Severe Scoliosis, with 12 levels of bulging discs and stenosis on every level so, I really had a hard time with my mattress. We got a 2 inch memory foam......not good, then added the Perfect Harmony topper, OMG!!!! It is SOOOOO comfy now, all I need to get is a gel or Styrofoam piece just to put across where our backs are, for a bit more support and it will be just right. I thought I was going to have to buy a new mattress, and we are upgrading already in a year or so, really didn't want to put the money into a mattress, most likely have a King not a queen in the next one!!! But it's a quick and comfy fix, trust me!!!!

I'm full-timing right now in our Surveyor SV-264. It came with a decent matress, but we had bought a 3" foam topper for another trailer that we sold before we used the foam. I have it on top of this matress and it sleeps much better than the bed at home... and my back has stopped hurting... 8^)
