We're in the market as well. Have a king sleep number in our 14 Entegra. Need recommendations. Camping World only has "Comfort Zone" mixed reviews on it.

Call these guys with your mattress dimensions. They can make anything you need, their prices are very reasonable, and their customer service is exceptional.

https://www.mattressinsider.com/rv-mattress.html

Ive purchased from them for three different coaches (one cut corner, one with a hinge, and one “off the shelf”) and have always been satisfied.

I even had one that didn’t expand sufficiently because I left it in the box too long (my fault - it sat for several months) and they still replaced it free of charge. If I wasn't satisfied with the sleep number mattress I have in my Ventana, I’d replace it with one from Mattress Insider.

CAUTION****** When changing out the mattress, you need to account for the fact that on many models, the mattress/bed slides under the wardrobe cabinets. If you get a mattress more than 10"-11" tall, it won't fit.

We went with short (height) pillow top. For those who like the new foam mattresses, that would probably be the way to go.

Like Don just said, don't make the over 10" mistake... I did, Pictures attached. Once that 12" mattress opened up, it was like giving birth to get it out of the door.

It was purchased from Costco, so the return was easy once I got it back to them.
Purchased another one from Costco, this time a 10". I did trim the 10" memory foam down on the sides with a long cake knife to give a bit more clearance by the little built in night stands.

Thats one of the things I like about Mattress Insider. You can have them make it to any dimensions you want. On one of them, the 60” wide queen was so tight next to the night stands it was really difficult to make the bed so I ordered the new mattress 58 1/2” wide. Made a big difference. I also had them put a hinge in that one to make under-bed storage easier to access - those mattresses are heavy and this took the stress off the struts. And for height I just measured the clearance to any windows or obstacles. On an older class C, I was able to add 4” in length to the bed. Also they come in a box that you open up inside the coach, roll the mattress out on the bed, remove the plastic wrap, and let it expand to size in place. Much easier than muscling a full size mattress in the coach.

I just ordered a RV King 10 memory foam from Dynasty Mattress. You can also find them on Amazon. I saved tax ordering direct and got free shipping. Fits perfectly.
