26DBH owners step inside please

We are taking delivery of our 26DBH soon and I was wondering how the comfort level of the stock queen short mattress is.

The kid's bunk mattresses look sort of thin and may need a topper but I was wondering how the bed in the master bedroom is. I see replacement ones for ~300 online and are 8-10" thick. (supposedly still bendable to get to the storage underneath)

The stock mattress is pretty uncomfortable. I bought a 3 inch memory foam mattress topper off of eBay for $79 with free shipping and it's made a big difference. We also bought some cheap foam toppers from Walmart for the kids bunks. They were around $15 each.

Congrats on the new purchase. While our trailer is not the same model as yours, I'm pretty sure they have the same mattress. As others have said, they are very uncomfortable. You will definitely need mattress toppers. The bunks are pretty much unusable without toppers. I am considering spending the cash for a new mattress for the queen bed.

That's what I have heard and was looking for confirmation. I found a few on Ebay for ~$280 w/ free shipping. I heard to stay away from the imported ones. Looks like I need to spend more money.

The kids mattresses I will get 2" toppers for and trim to fit.

We bought a memory foam topper from Kohls for like $75. It makes it so now we're at least able to sleep. The other solution is, you're camping, drink more....sleep better.

3" memory foam from amazon. Worked perfect for us. I'm checking walmart for the bunk bed solution

Same story here, we added a memory foam mattress topper to our 2013 26DBH when it was brand new as well. Spent 1 weekend without it, and it's not comfy

We also use a memory foam topper I also went to the local Foam fabric shop and bought two 4x6 3 inches thick pads and put them underneath the bunkbeds and mattresses less than 100$

How do you all handle the cut out corners on the bunks? In terms of sheet fitment and adding any kind of padding?
