Is there something special with the one you have?........If not, figure out what size you need and google mattress sizes and go shopping.....RV dealers are expensive.....

Amazon's had our Denver mattress. Exactly same one that came in our 2013 Crossroads Rushmore. I sleep great. Just to wait one day to let the foam expand.

Replacement mattress

I slept on my New RV mattress once, hated it, then got the Zinus 8 inch thick, RV Queen to replace it. I didnít want it too thick so I didnít have to scoot up too high to get on the bed. I find it very comfortable and it was at a reasonable price. As another wrote in another recent mattress discussion on this forum, get the 8Ē, or 10Ē Zinus, available on Amazon, If you already got a new mattress then great, for others looking here is the link:

I am planning on getting a residential mattress from Sam's Club when I need one.

Get this - we bought a mattress from Camping World and lived it. I woke up one morning thinking I was in my bed at my house...but was on the mattress from Camping World.

Forward 4 years. We need a new mattress in our 5th wheel now. We get the same mattress name from Camping World. This mattress was not good. Ended up getting a residential mattress.

In looking at Flagstaff/Rockwood trailers I am seeing a higher quality mattress in their trailers. I doubt I would replace it if I end up with one of their trailers.

We tried to get used to the Serta that came with our new Pinnacle. No dice for the wife. I ordered a Sealy Cocoon 10 inch from Costco. All is well now.

Bonus, the hard plastic clamshell box with wheels/handle it came with fits in the basement perfectly.

Replacement Mattress

I purchased a mattress at almost 2 years ago ago, pocket coil spring . It has held up very well so far after 11 months of use so far . Very accommodating and knowledgeable as well as warranty . I highly recommend checking them out ! Did I mention comfy too ?

Another plug for the Zinus 8 inch mattress on Amazon. Given I am 6'2", the RV mattress was tossed right away, an extension underlayment board added, and the Zinus purchased. Was cheap, and one of the most comfortable mattresses I have used. The DGF agrees.

Upgraded to a sleep number. Never going back. Have king at home, queen in the RV. I do let some air out if we are going to climb more than about 500' during the day. I do this with the power off so it does not refill. I have two quick release valves to let some air out quickly. Refilling is just a few buttons to push.

Cal king Purple 2. Fits perfectly, slightly longer than the original RV mattress but same exact 72" width. I had to add more support to the center bar, no big deal.
