4" GelFoam Mattress Pads $99

Just a heads up, everybody knows how comfortable the "stock" mattresses are in their new camper, so I was told to get a good foam mattress pad. I had been looking around and found anything thicker than 1 1/2" was kinda spendy, but happened to glance through a flyer and saw 4" Gelfoam pads over 50% off at Shopko through the 4th of April. Normally $229 for twin-queen, now $99, just a little more for king. I picked one up and it really seems to make a difference.
Now when I sneak out there to take a nap, I'll be even more comfy

We tried the foam toppers and they were OK. The foam seemed to get warm in the summer nights. But when we went to the Goshen Rally we found a Sealy mattress for $500 and was it the best investment we made. It's as good as sleeping at home.

But this looks like residential size and not sure you can trim a gel mattress down to fit an RV bed.

Maxhise, I'm new to owning a camper, my gf and I have been looking for a memory foam topper for our camper. Are you saying our hybrid queen bed is a different size than the queen bed in our house?

The mattress pad is about 4" longer than the camper mattress, same width. Cut it easily with a carpet knife or let it roll over the head end.

Some RVs come with a short queen bed - same width as home but shorter in length

A home queen is 60 wide x 80 inches long

An electric knife works well to trim foam

Your hybrid should have a regular queen and not an rv queen.

Yeah, our Sabre had a queen size that was smaller than our queen for the house. When we got our Salem, it was to have a king, and it is smaller than the king we have in the house.

In my last 5th wheel I replaced the factory rv queen with a residential pillow top mattress. Only issues I had was it hung over the end of the bed frame so when you sat in the foot it would slide a little so you had to keep pushing it back to head board every morning. Other problem was it was really heavy and made it hard to get to under bed storage. Luckily my new one has a Serta memory foam mattress because it slides and it actually touches the wardrobe when you slide it in so I can't upgrade to longer one.

Ps. I was shocked on the new one when I open the under bed storage and it pops up all by itself. Much easier.
