I did a search for "rv sofa bed mattress" on www.google.com and came up with all kinds of stuff. Give it a try!

Happy Trails! Jim

The big problem with trying to replace the typical mattress is it is so thin it is difficult to get anything that will still fit when folded up that feels anything better than the one that came with it. We ended up buying a double air mattress from JC Whitney for about $30. Works great, is not heavy, packs up small when deflated, quick to inflate. If we have someone with us for several nights, we throw it up on the big front bed during the day. Blows up real quick with a 12v powered inflator.

I know that many manufactuers including Monaco are now offering optional "SelectComfort Air Mattersses" for the sofa bed. Its an option I'm gonna try. For just the reason you specify... If they can by it, it can probably be acquired after market too.

Check out sleeperhelper.com it is a form that slides under the mattress. We took all their measurements and made a board of our own. We have a sofa bed in our guest room and in the motorhome so it was worth the investment. Everyone says it is worth it also after they sleep on the beds with the board on it. You may not need a new mattress with the board.
