Regular queen vs short

I just bought a used Class A Damon and the PO asked if I wanted the mattress and I let him keep it. My better half wouldn't have slept on it anyway. The question is has anyone replaced theirs with a regular queen as opposed to a short queen. It will make getting around the bed a little tight at the bottom but after all your only going to make that maneuver to get into bed or make it up. It would make getting a new one easier and make for more choices. Thoughts, experiences?

Regular queen was to long for my rig but a dbbl is the same length and 4" narrower compared to the RV queen.

I replaced my short queen with a regular queen Tempur-Pedic-Ergo adjustable base mattress.The mattress in the upright position losses 10 inches and gives us great walk around and better bedroom space. I also have the same mattress at home and absolutely love it.

A standard queen is 60" wide X 80" long. A short queen is 4" to 8" shorter. Make sure the extra length won't interfere with moving around in the bedroom or if the bed is in a slide, make sure it won't hit something on the opposite wall when the slide is closed.

As you say, a standard queen will give you many more choices and would be my preference by a wide margin.

We put the standard queen in ours, and though it's obvious that things are a little snug getting around the end of it now, there's still enough room to slide through. As mentioned, it's not something that's a big inconvenience if just using it to crawl into/out of the one side, and while making it. I'd do it again...

Just don't sit on the end of the mattress to put your Bunny Slippers on
