Raise table bed?

Has anyone raised the table bed to allow your feet to to go over the table backboard?

If that bed was only a few inches longer it be perfect. I thought about getting a foam matress from walmart and see if that raises it just enough. Curious if anyone else has raised the table bed any.

Nnot really sure what you are asking. What model do you have?

Camper has a dinette table that folds down to a small bed. Where the dinette is located by the queen bed i am wanting to raise it so my feet can lay on the bed too. The dinette bed is 64"s long. I took some measurements and thought if i bought a 6-8" foam mattress and cut it i could raise the dinette bed enough to allow for a taller person to sleep there.

Curious if anyone tried that before

My thoughts: how much would the person lying down sink down into a 6-8" pad?

I have found lying down on thick memory foam mattresses uncomfortable because I am big and sink down too much, making turning over a challenge.

Whatever you add should be very firm in order to be comfortable and maintain the height needed.
