We bought a 2" foam for our RV and I really like it. Then we bought a 4" for the house - not so much.

Sam's club sells a 4" gel foam that looks the same as the OP mentioned and its also $99. Had one now for 3 years and its great. My original TT was RV short queen size (75" x 60") so I used an electric knife like the one we carve the turkey with and shaved off 5" from the length. We use a good quality fitted mattress cover that makes it ride like a single mattress with no sliding around. Highly recommended.

our hybrid has a short queen heated mattress, and I put a 3' standard queen over top of it. I like how it fills the space of the bed platform. The stock mattress has space all around it, so when we put the memory foam topper in, it filled it quite well. Now we have a standard queen sleeping area instead of the short queen. My feet will never know the difference

Oh...and the heated mattress works just fine under the memory topper. Warms everything up real nice. In the summer, we'll switch it around so the foam doesn't warm us up. We sleep on a tempurpedic at home, so sleeping on the Rockwood stock hybrid mattresses was not an option for us. IMHO, my 1992 coleman pup foam mattress was much more comfortable.

Our campers have all had the short queen with under bed storage. I built a replacement board that is 4" longer- the foot end that also acts as the lid to the storage- and put a covered foot board on it to hold the mattress. We then bought an 8" thick standard queen foam mattress. The foot board presses the mattress firmly into the front of the camper, eliminating the gap where our pillows used to fall. So, in short, we now have a comfy mattress that is longer, uses standard sheets, doesn't allow the pillows to fall down and is super comfortable. It's actually the same mattress we have on our home bed, so no getting used to the new feel since they sleep identically. I think we spent in the low $200's for the mattress and the board mod required a sheet of 1/2" plywood, an 8' 1x6 and a piece of carpet or other covering material.

Purchased one of these at Sams Club 2 years ago for our bed at home. Purchased another for our Kng bed in 5er last spring. My wife was able to trim with razor cutter to match the King in camper. It is great!!

So we started by adding the 4" topper from Sam's club, shortened it with the electric carving knife bought at a clearance store after drawing the line with a sharpie. This year went on & bought a short queen 11" memory foam mattress to replace it with ... saved a lot of $$$
Camping since May 2013 .... FL & GA only so far .... loving it!

RV Mattresses

I found a site online where I bought a short king for my TT. It is the most comfortable mattress I have slept on. The site has any size mattress you want. You can even buy fitted sheets and encasements to fit your mattress. I am picking up my V-Cross tomorrow and it has a 60'X74 Queen. Unfortunately I have to let my King go with the trade in so I splurged once again and bought from this site. The one I am purchasing is top of the line. Here's the link to it if you are interested in throwing out that stock mattress. Luxury RV Mattress | RV Mattress Gel Foam

We got our queen memory foam topper at Costco. Cut it a bit shorter to fit our short queen in the RV, using electric knife. Liked it so much, also bought one for the bed at home!
