We have a residential QS in iur MH which was installed by the original owner. He just replaced the original support plywood with a piece that was big enough. Fortunately, when the slide is retracted, the mattress fits under the wardrobes' overhang. We use a Costco 1.5" memory foam topper on it, and that compresses as the slide comes in.

Bought a "memory foam" mattress at Sam's Club. put it on the garage floor, took the cover off, measured the length needed and cut the end off with a large bread knife. About 6 inches worth. We are sold on memory foam!

i have the expanded queen from sleep number, was in our stick and brick home. You don't have to purchase one made for RV's, just expand the base. Sleep number gets our vote on the best mattress...

Look for a custom mattress manufacture near you, we found several in Ft. Worth Tx.
We got rid of the wall to wall King for a custom Queen, took our measurements picked the quality and firmness we wanted, it was ready in a few days.
We feel like itís better and cheaper than the ones at Camping World, etc. Tell me what you did about the plywood king size under mattress, I am thinking of doing same to make room in our 2011 360. Did you trim it, if so how much on each side? Any info appreciated.

I trimmed about Ĺ a foot off each side.
(if you do it wait till the mattress arrives to make your cuts)
I didn't cut the part inside the slide, we use them for night stands, which we REALLY missed from our SOB 5th wheel.

Now for some decent reading lights, that wont give us a sunburn.
