Anyone replace their corner bed mattress?

After a couple of dozen nights of use, the worthless mattress that came with our 24S is shot. I'm thinking of going with memory foam and cutting it to size, but interested in what others have done.

What did you get and where? How do you like it?

I suggest that you buy a quality mattress with a memory foam top - - or --
buy the 2 pieces separately. Our TT came with a premium mattress and we added a memory foam topper that we bought at Costco.
We have a custom built Abe Feller in the house.

We just have a foam topper I got from bed bath and beyond. Full size. Works well.

We bought a 2" thick memory foam topper from Camping World over 10 years ago and it's in our new fiver. The topper is great. Very well constructed and wonderful to sleep on.

Mattress

I bought the 8" thick memory foam at sam's. I ripped the seam down he side and pulled mattress out. Payed the old one on top and marked te size on new one. Cut it then hand sewed the cover back on. We love the bed now. It's almost as good as te high dollar bed at home. LOL

I bought a 4 inch full size dense foam topper from walmart.com for about 100. I turned the mattress around (it sticks out a little) and the full size sheets just fit the topper perfectly
Makes bed very comfortable
Only disadvantage is getting into bathroom a little tight but doable

We bought a foam mattress from Foam Factory www.thefoamfactory.com They have foam in all thicknesses and qualities. We got the HQ 6" standard double (cost $161), cut it down to size with an electric knife, slit the old cover, peeled it off, pulled it on the new mattress, and stitched it up. Or they will cut a custom and sew a custom cover if you prefer... Great upgrade, and they say the HQ foam lasts an average of 17 years. Better than the 1-2 years for cheap foam. We have been completely satisfied.

One night on that horrible mattress was enough. Bought a full size 4" foam cover from Costco. Very easy to cut to size with a kitchen knife when the air temp was near freezing. Then added a mattress cover with one inch cotton padding, cotton sheets and sleep is just like at home.

Bought a good quality foam mattress with a zip on cover. Made a cardboard pattern from the wood base, transferred to exposed foam after zipping back the cover. Cut it with an electric knife, as seen on YouTube. Zipped it up, tucked in the excess cover. Great sleep on the new mattress. I can't believe that crummy mattress that came with the coach, had a built in "sink-hole."
