Flex-Steel Hide A Bed mattress

The mattress in my Flex-Steel sofa is awful. I can feel the springs and the framing below the mattress. We rarely have anyone sleeping but when we do, I want them comfortable.
I have thought of an inflatable mattress but you would need a step ladder.
I have thought about a foam topper but that just takes up a lot of room when not being used.
Any suggestion?

If you get three boards cut to size for the bed, put them between the bed and the matress. You can't fold the boards into the bed but they fit behind the couch during the day. I do use a memory foam matress for more comfort, I am a side sleeper and no hip pain is noticed in the morning. It can be folded up and tied with bungie cords during the day. Bedding and all get folded up into the matress, makes for faster bed making in the evening. I call it the matress walk and put it on the back bed during the day. There is still enough room on the back bed for nap "30". Unless you have guests it doesn't have to stay in TT and can be left at home.

If you Google 'sleeper sofa replacement mattress' you will find a wealth of sources. Among them:
Amazon.com - Queen Air Dream Sleeper Sofa Replacement Mattress (air mattress becomes worthless when leak develops)

Replacement Mattress | Custom Mattress for Sofas, RVs and Boats (probably pricey)

Modern Sleep 4-1/2" Sofa Bed Memory Foam Mattress - Walmart.com (Not too pricey)

Lot's more in Google search.
