Has anyone replaced mattress in 255DS Lexington?

It is an size 54x72. It is not a queen/full short, but even shorter. I've found sofa bed mattresses of this size. Has anyone used a 4.5 inch thick sofa bed mattress and what it comfortable?

Replaced Mattress

We purchased from Mattress Firm a full-size memory foam mattress and it's only about 4.5" thick. The mattress that came with our used 2007 255 GTS was a plush mattress and when the slide was closed, it buckled in the middle and I suspect it put pressure on the slide mechanism itself. We've not yet had a chance to sleep on it, but we did notice that it fit quite nicely with the slide closed with no buckling.

We ended up buying a custom made mattress. Next stop Utah.
