We actually went to The Mattress Factory and they made us a regular mattress in the short queen size - no extra charge.

We have a Sanibel RE3400 - replaced the CA King with a Stearns and Foster Luxury Lois CA King. Found out the original mattress is made to crush the last 4 inches when you bring the bedroom slide in. If we had put the King size instead of the CA King it would have been perfect. I take step stool my wife uses and prop up the foot of the mattress when I pull the slide in and it works fine. It is heavy though and we are full timers - gets old. When we trade again - I see it coming, the trailer not the mattress - will do something different.

I always get rid of the factory mattress and put in a good residential one. I also size down to ease the effort of having to put sheets on. Most of the time the mattress is completely flush with the side walls and just a hassle to put sheets on. I have an adjustable Sleep Number at home, and to get my correct angle in the 5th wheel, I put two layers of 2 inch styrofoam under the top third of the mattress and it works like a charm. Here's to good sleeping....

What size bed do you have?
My CL came with a Futon mattress (a.k.a. puppy pad) that I got rid of before the first trip. Even I got a Bed-in-a-box from Wal-Mart that works well. My TT bed is a double so I think I ended up with a full size mattress - not sure since it been a while.

Terier, its a queen, 60" wide which is normal, 72" long which is just 8" short of a real queen mattress. It has a 3 or 4" foam mattress on it... It's solid but it's terribly uncomfortable and I like springs

Find a local class 8/Semi dealership. Most can have custom sizes manufactured by name brand companies. Call get a price. Worth a try.

Find a big / big truck dealership. My buddy works at a big one here in the mid-west. He offered help me get one for my TT. He says they buy a lot of mattresses weekly, for the big rigs and custom sizes are not uncommon.

We moved our house queen to ours and it works fine
. It is heaver than the stock mattress so i use a stick to hold up the storage to get under the bed. It was closer to the cabinets but fit.
