We have an A126 that has a sofa that makes into the bed. It's just the two of us and we were leaving the sofa folded out into a bed pretty much all the time. So, instead of wearing out the sofa cushions, we stored them away and purchased a standard full size foam mattress. The main reason for buying a foam
mattress is that they are lighter than inner spring mattresses.
The mattress fits perfectly width wise, but is short in length. Rockford A frames width measure 81" which is the length of the bed in the unit. A standard full size mattress is 75" long, so it's about 6" short. I suppose you could get a specialty mattress that would fit exactly, but we preferred not to spend the extra $$ on that. Also, standard bed sheets fit without problem.
