Greetings!

We just found this site and are very excited to be able to use it. We are recently retired and new to Rving. We recently purchased a Mallard by Fleetwood pull behind and are very excited to start Rving. We have a question as we are updating our camper -- are wanting to update the bedding and have a 3/4 bed. Any thoughts about updating a 3/4 bed and what you've done for a mattress. Thanks in advance!

Without seeing it, it's hard to answer. You'll have to have the additional clearance on the sides of the bed. I updated a 3/4 bead in a Toyato Dolphin to a Sears purchased interspring full mattress back in '90, but that was in the overhead above the cab. I put down 3/4 inch construction grade plywood to compensate for the overhand width and then faced in with a stained piece of 1X6 Oak.

I also upgraded to a full size queen (sleep number mattress). Replaced the the plywood with 3/4" cut to the size of the new mattress.

We have only room for a 3/4 bed. Guess we didn't word it right -- have to order a new 3/4 bed. We've did some investigating and found a website for a RV mattresses. They have a memory foam mattress that we found interesting. Just wondering if any one has ordered one of them. Thanks in advance!

I'm not sure if this is what you are asking, but the mattress that came with our RV was terribly uncomfortable. We bought a memory foam to go on top of the mattress. I think it was the 2". It's not so bad now and I can get comfortable enough to sleep. I really wish we had the money to buy a sleep number.....
