Dimensions for Queensize bed

We have a 2010 GT 330TS with a queensize bed, but it's presently at the dealer's over 2 hours away.

As with most threads I've seen, the basic mattress in most models is a common sore point (soory for the pun) amongst most users. We have a first class queensize pillow top mattress in the guest bedroom which doesn't get as much use as we're planning for the MH.

According to the floorplans for our model, the mattress is supposed to be 60" X 74". Can anyone confirm this measurement for sure?

Thanks

Yes, that is the correct measurement. But, it has radius corners. We bought a sleep number mattress to replace the original and it doesn't have radius corners, so I added a piece of plywood all the way across the end and screwed it to the existing plywood to support the squared cornered new mattress.

They call it a Short Queen Mattress. We went with the Sleep Number Mattress as well. We have one at home also. I wouldn't trade it for anything else.

We have a standard queen size pillowtop mattress in our camper. they will fit but are longer than the mattress you are replacing. you will need to get a piece of plywood to support teh added length and atach it to the bed platform/base.

I guess my question can only be answered by someone else with a 330TS.

My biggest concern is not that an RV queensize mattress has radial corners or not compared to a "normal" one for the house, but rather the overall length cannot be any longer than the mattress in place today in our 330TS.

In the 330TS, the bedroom slide closes and the mattress moves into a position where it actually pushes up against the drawers/dresser on the opposite wall. If our replacement mattress is just an inch or so longer than the RV one, we can't use our exisiting pillow top mattress.

Thanks everyone.

We have the same situation. We have 2 slides in the bedroom and the matress butts right up against the drawers and closet doors when closed so there's no longer mattress we could go with. I'm 6ft and I've just learned to move up to the top as much as possible. I still sleep very well. Our original mattress was like sleeping on a spring. The Sleep Number mattress solved that problem. Gave the other mattress to a co-worker for his toy-hauler. His kids love it under the skimpy mattress they originally had.

We pull the mattress away from the headboard several inches when we go to bed this gives us more foot room(feet not hanging off) and of course our head is on a pillow.

It will be a concern if you replace your radius corner mattress with a square corner and you sit on a corner and fall on your butt. You need to support that corner. The sleep number short queen is the correct length to replace your original mattress. Camping World sells another short queen replacement that is much better than the original and is much cheaper than a sleep number.
