Our new 12 Flagstaff has adjustable legs on both sides of the foot of the bed. Not had a problem, but just flipped it out last night and no one has slept on it yet. Will know how it sleeps this weekend when our son comes to the cg.

ranger, the matress pump goes to the head of the bed. Ours has a designed pillow bump up at the head of the bed. Sister and BIL just spent 4 nights using the mattress and they said it was a good sleep. (maybe they were being polite?) We did use a down mattress pad so that helped.

we had it set up correctly with the pump at the head i believe the problem is in the design of the u shaped leg at the foot of the pull out i just contacted the rv dealer he said it should not be that way & is going to contact forest river maybe there is a fix like replacing the legs to the adjustable legs mentioned in the post thanks for the replies

My 2005 Flagstaff had the fold out sofa with bouncy springs and thin foam mattress on top of the spring/frame. The head of the bed was way lower than the foot. So, I built a frame out of 2x4's and set the sofa on top of it. That raised the sofa 3 1/2". Next, I cut a 4x8 piece of 1/4" luan into strips about 48"x18". I used 4 of the strips to put long ways between the springs and foam mattress. That made it a bit more firm. When folding up the sofa I stack the the luan strips on top of each other and put them under the cushions.
