74 inch Queen Beds

I am tired of feeling like my feet are hanging off the bed - have others just dropped a standard queen bed (80 inch length) in their RV in place of a short queen? What modifications did you have to make?

No modification needed, full queen was standard on my rig, however, replaced it with an upgraded mattress anyways.

I replaced our worthless radius corner mini mattress with a memory foam but had to cut it to about 78" so the slide would close. A 100% improvement. I also added some support under the end of the extension.

YOu need to see how much mattress will overhang the platform. Next if the bed is in a side slide, you will to measure to see if you have clearance for the extra inches when the slide is retracted.
