We bought a Walmart foam mattress trimmed to fit with big juniper. It came rolled up, just follow directions and let it expand. We read reviews and bought a firmer one then added a topper. Love it!

RV Mattress

Ours is also a Short Queen. I bought a Gel Foam Mattress and HATE IT! It is too hot, it doesn't breathe, and tends to retain moisture and mildew. Short of getting a new one, we're constantly drying the platform. A good, standard mattress in on my wish list. Also, sheets are a PITA to find. I use standard queen sheets with X suspenders.

We got rid of the OEM mattress within less than six months after we got our fiver. We went with a queen size regular mattress but found it was not as comfortable as we thought it would be. We took it out to our farm and put it in one of the spare bedrooms and went to a Sleep Comfort store and ordered a queen from them. We have had it nearly 5 years now and really sleeping like babies. We do have to go down to the store again and purchase some "O" rings for the connections because we have one side that looses air but very slowly. We have to recharge it about every four to five days back up to where we feel comfortable. Ours is a dual comfort so each of us can set it where it feels best for our sleeping. One thing you do have to remember with a Sleep Comfort is that you have to let some air out of the mattress if you are on the move and increase in altitude. Kind of like having a potato chip bag that is not open and swells when you increase in altitude. LOL We are so happy with the Sleep Comfort that we have three of them. One in the fiver, one in the sticks and bricks and one out at the farm so that tells you something about our sleep habits!

Opinions welcome.

I believe that is called short queen. Correct me if I'm wrong.
Not interested in a topper, like to not raise bed any higher.[/QUOTE]

Local Option

We tried all of the local mattress stores, but none of them carried a queen short mattress. We just happened to drive by a foam mattress store in a strip mall and were skeptical but we stopped in. They had two choices, both comfortable but we ended up buying the cheaper $300 one. What a difference a good nights sleep makes!😳

Rv Mattress

Try Wayfair ( they have a large selections for short queen and are a lot less costly than most of the other suppliers. Also free shipping for most orders.

American Mattress, 4075 West 11th, Eugene, Oregon.

2003, we converted a 1997 Ford CF8000 to our concept of an ExpeditionVehicle.

The American Mattress folks have an on-site mattress-making room so you can watch.
The equipment is simple, the process is complete in a couple-three hours.

We chose height and other dimensions.
We chose materials.
After testing their hundred or so displays, we chose our level of softness.
To avoid under-mattress condensation, I built the mattress platform from expanded aluminum, a kind of window-screen but much stouter.

And for a stand-still house a couple-three years ago, American Mattress built custom side-by-side twin XL beds with bendy motorized hospital-type foundations... aka 'Zero Gravity'.
We specified multiple vibrators... aka 'Magic Fingers'.

And they built mattresses for our boat.
Again, I built the platforms from expanded aluminum.
Zero-zero-zero issues with under-mattress moisture.

Several decades in the same location, American Mattress operates from a low-overhead drafty ancient warehouse without HVAC.
In the neighborhood known as 'Eugene Oregon', trustable people tend to stay in business.

If I owned a business, I would hire their staff.

When we had the Coachmen, we replaced our mattress at the Mattress Factory, Inc., 2910 North 30th Ave., Phoenix, AZ, 85017. Custom made, you can pick out what fabrics are used, covering, size, etc. Takes them 2-4 days to make it. Then return to pick it up. Ours was less than $600.00 for a short queen, over stuffed, pillow top, organic cotton cover. We were very pleased. If in the Phoenix area, highly recommend. We have a king in the Tiffin, 100 times better quality than the original in the Coachmen...

Another mattress isn't going to do it. You need the Froli Modular Sleep system. Its like a inch high box spring. Google it and watch the videos. Turned our short Queen into a very comfortable bed. The system was originally designed for boats where head clearance is tight. 888-463-7654 when I bought ours three years ago. Cost about $230. Took two hours maybe to install on the base wood under the mattresses.

I haven't looked through all the posts but in case no one has mentioned it, we bought a Serenia Sleep (Memory foam) RV mattress on Amazon two years ago and have just over 100 nights of utilization so far. Our 70 year old bodies couldn't handle the cheap mattress that came with our 5th wheel. After the first year, we tried a 4" topper for a year, which helped but didn't solve the problem. FWIW it's worth, we are thrilled with it. We have a Prana mattress at home and this Serena Sleep (8 inch) for a little over $400 is just as good as the Prana purchased several years ago for nearly $3k. We have the King but it appears Amazon still sells the short queen for about $300.00.
