At Costco? Do they have it in the RV Queen size?

Try checking Ebay also. They have some Queen 2-3 inch memory foam toppers with cover for between $80-$90. Those are the "Buy it Now" prices, so there isn't any bidding to go through either.

Air mattress vs foam topper

We have the expensive Select comfort air mattress at home and the 2" foam topper in the RV. We find both to be acceptable and the foam topper is a LOT less expensive.

You know how Costco is, hit and miss. We bought ours a couple of years ago so I would guess they don't have them anymore. However it's worth a look see. The "Queen" size we bought is about 3" longer than our mattress but it works just fine. I could get out a pair of shears and cut it off but I'm just too lazy. Other things on the list to do.

Don't be too hung up on the "RV size" all this means is you will pay double for something that is 3" shorter than the "norm". A standard Queen should work out just fine. I think someone else suggested Walmart as a possible source for one of the memory foam toppers. Might give it a try..

We have a 2" memory foam topper as well...but I also got a sheepskin mattress pad to put on top of the foam...it has elastic holders on each corner so in addition to keeping everything in place on the original mattress it also makes it very comfortable and plush. I did the same thing on my bed in our boat...they are every bit as comfortable as my home bed.

i just bought a 4" topper at walmart for $130.00 and it has made a huge difference!!! the size was slightly smaller than a standard queen mattress ( 56" by 76") so no cutting was required.

I bought a 3" memory foam from sams for 130 dollars and it made a night and day difference. Are you can bring your mattress to a place that makes mattress and have them add some support and padding to it or they can make you a new mattress to fit your needs. I checked around here at two different places that make them and it would cost between 2 and 3 hundred dollars.

I saw one at Coscto that was a 3 inch for $150. But isn't an RV mattress smaller than a regular mattress. The Costco one says it's 60x80. I measured and its 5 inches longer than the RV bed. How do you make it shorter? Do you just cut it short? With what?

The one we bought at Costco a few years ago was longer too, we just let it overrun the mattress. However if you need to cut it I would try an electric carving knife. You could also do a google search for cutting foam rubber and I am sure you would find an answer.

We bought an 8" thick memory foam mattress at Walmart for about $200 and just took out the old mattress. I have a queen in my 2007 Rockwood 8315SS and the only modification I did was to cut about 3" of overhang from the foot of the mattress to make it fit perfect. It came in a zippered cover and I just tucked the excess under. This mattress feels great.
