2014 Thor Outlaw Mattress

Trying to upgrade/replace the air mattresses included in my new toy hauler. I see where Amazon sells memory foam mattresses for fold out couch in my 37 MD. Has anyone else done this? Will replacement memory foam mattresses fold/fit into couch and overhead loft (above drivers cab)?

The electric drop-down front bunk will fit a foam mattress. The bunk will crank up to the ceiling and could even hold an over-thick mattress...no problem.

But, I believe the folding couches are not like a hide-a-bed/sleeper sofa so, it will not fit a solid foam mattress.

I am sure a Generation II (37LS and MD) owner will be right along to confirm.

Best luck

We bought a foam mattress for your bunk, no problems there. I don't think you could store one folded up in the couch unfortunately.

Do 2 in the bunk

I have been thinking about the same thing.

I do not have an outlaw yet, but my thought was trying 2 thinner mattresses. Store both on the bunk.

If bunk as well as the sofa bed need to be used, put one of each on top of the airbeds.

Here is what we bought. Originally got it for on top of the mattress in the loft and found it worked well on its own in the bunk. I believe they have a bit of a thicker one also.

I don't understand Thor's love of air mattresses. I personally can't stand them. From other threads, it appears that 3.5 inches is the thinnest part of the drop-down bunk but a 4" memory foam will fit because it will easily squeeze down. There is more space in the drop-down bunk the further you get from the front, so you may be able to fold a 2" or thicker topper in half so you can have a total of 6" of memory foam or use it on the air mattress for the couch.

I don't know how effective a topper will be on an air mattress. I haven't ever tried it but question if it will help. Then again, I hate air mattresses

On my tailgate trip to Fresno last month I let my friend use the loft and I slept on the couch air mattress for the first time, and I thought it was comfortable. To each his own

Gen I Outlaws (3611/12 and 3808) had a regular sleeper sofa that folds the mattress inside like in a home, giving different mattress options

The Gen II (37LS/MD) have a very different design...the mattress has to fold-up to be very thin when the sofa is closed, hence the question:
