wildwood xlite 230bhxl short queen bed

Have a short queen murphy bed. can I extend that to make it a regular queen? I say an extender that is supposed to go at head of bed and extends it to a full queen but not sure it would fit on platform or if there is enough room to close the bed if it sticks out.

Also, has anyone replaced the mattress? My pop up beds were way more comfortable than the mattress that is in there. Had to put a mattress topper with egg crate for relief.

Thanks

I don't think you can go any longer with the Murphy bed since the end of it goes right up to the ceiling when its folded up. You can definitely replace the bed as I did that in mine.

I got an 8in thick memory foam from Amazon and paired that with a thick pillow top style mattress pad and I have to say I never thought I could have a comfortable mattress for that cheap. It's a bit tight and I definitely have to lean on it a bit when I am latching it in, but I am going on just about two years and no issues.

I got the Zinus Deluxe Memory Foam 8 inch mattress, but looking at Amazon I don't see that exact model is being sold anymore. That's a shame considering it had a 4.7 rating and was under $200 and plenty of people on this forum had vouched for that mattress.

If you search Amazon for, RV short queen mattress, you will find all sorts of options, many with very good ratings. You can also search for, RV queen pillow top mattress pad, and find plenty of options there. For me the cotton pillow top is key cause I think foam mattress sleep a bit warm and at least to me seem a bit firm. I wouldn't skimp on this if you go the foam mattress route.

Another option if you don't trust doing this online is going to a Beds by Design or similar store as they make custom mattresses at a reasonable price and they typically offer free adjustments to the bed design if you don't like it after if they have built it.
