Mattress

Hi, has anyone changed out their Short Queen mattress in the master bedroom?
I purchased a new 320 BHDS and noticed the short queen mattress is shorter than our old camper. Measuring 60" X 73" it is shorter and much harder.
Here is the camper mattress sizes, I find it odd it measures shorter than what it is suppose to be?
  • Three Quarter Size : 48" x 75"
  • RV Full: 53" x 75"
  • Short Queen : 60" x 75" (most common short queen size)
  • Short Queen: 60" x 74"
  • RV Queen : 60" x 80"
  • Olympic Queen : 66" x 80"
  • RV King: 72" x 75"
  • RV King: 72" x 80"
  • Cal King: 72" x 84"
  • Eastern King: 76" x 80
  • RV Bunk: 28" x 75"
  • RV Bunk: 30" x 75"
  • RV Bunk: 30" x 80"
  • RV Bunk: 34" x 75"
  • RV Bunk: 35" x 79"
  • RV Twin : 38" x 75"
  • RV Twin : 38" x 80
  • RV Bunk: 42" x 80"

Funny, you don't have the one in my Roo19 - 60 x 72. (Which I thought was known as an RV Queen, not 60x80.)

We put a memory foam topper on ours. It is a full queen size so it hangs over the end. This works well because it is plenty flexible to push by when walking around the bed, but still makes the bed a little longer.

I dont think it would be any problem replacing the mattress with a 74 or a 75, it is just going to be slightly closer to the bathroom wall.

Is your fridge on your 320 really noisy inside and out when it is running?
Also, I noticed you wrote you had a bungee cord on your propane tank cover, mine does not have this. I had to widen the tanks for the cover to fit snug.
Thanks for info; Les..

The outside fridge sounds like every other 110v small fridge, and you can hear it kick on when you are in the bunkroom.

The inside fridge makes different noises since it does not have a compressor. I frequently can hear the fans from inside, and while they somewhat load, I think the sound is normal. I am always surprised when it is on propane and I stand outside that I can hear the propane igniter and then the flame burning.

Our cover came with a small black bungee underneath.

I meant the inside fridge making noise that you can hear outside. It is like a squealing fan with a bad bearing.

We ended up pulling the mattress down a bit, rolled up a couple of rugs for fillers before adding a pillow top type topper.
