Slightly Different Mattress Issue

After two years of barely acceptable comfort, we decided we had to replace or improve the original mattress in our TT. Before our four month trip last year we added a 2" foam topper which was an improvement, but not much of one.

Our TT has a Murphy Bed (which we love). Some toppers were quite heavy, and I was afraid that when the bed was up (vertical) the pad would slide down, especially as we drove for hours. So I found a lightweight one. BTW, it would slide down a little occasionally, but it wasn't a problem.

At the time I also shopped for a new mattress. Again, some were very heavy, and I didn't find a lightweight option that seemed good. One seemed okay, but when I spoke to the maker they said they did not recommend any of their mattresses for use on a murphy bed.

Has anyone had any experience with mattress replacement for a murphy bed? Or with a good topper? It's a short queen, which limits choices somewhat. We're leaving on another four month trip soon, so I've got to do something about this.

Conventional or foam okay, but price is an issue - just can't go over $500, less is even better. I know that's not much, but I was surprised at how many inexpensive well-reviewed mattresses I found. Height isn't really an issue, there's about 11" available, but weight is. I want to add as little as possible.

Not sure if this will help you but I can say we are very happy with ours. We do have a King but what I'll list below is for a Queen. Also we did trim ours to fit a bit better within the King Night Stands, very easy to do, just incase you need to trim for some reason. Weight of this Queen shows 66 lbs.

One last thing, it shows if bought on Google the price is $449.99 plus tax.

We ordered the double coil mattress from these guys and have been very happy with it.
