Rockwood 2703ws mattress replacement

We would like to replace the mattress in the front bedroom with a pillow top mattress. Has anyone done this and had any issues with the height of the mattress and opening the wardrobe doors ? Thanks!

Just a thought,

We added memory foam on top of our RV mattress. It now sleeps like our pillow top that we have at home. It has been a few years now but seems it was around $100 for queen size 5 or 6 years ago and yes, we are still using the same one.

I added a ikea foam full size queen on top of the serta innerspring this TT came with. The stock setup slides under the wardrobe a bit, when you pull the slide out in. With the extra mattress on top, before I put the slide in, I have a collapsable step stool that I put between the mattresses at the foot of the bed, which holds the top one up enough to enable the slide to close and allows the bottom mattress to nest in the normal manner and the last corner foot of the foam rests on the wardrobe. It is very comfortable. If that helps you

So if we are replacing the original mattress w a pillow top mattress it shouldn't be a problem / if memory foam has worked in the TT on top of the original mattress

Sounds like you need to break out your tape measure and get some measurements. Then take those to the mattress store.

I added a 3" Memory Foam top to the existing mattress and it is not a problem.

We put our double pillow top from home. The only problem is my vertically impaired wife needs a foot stool to get on it.

I have been thinking of doing something with my queen in my Salem CL 241. My concern is the height of the mattress. A friend who bought a Wildwood was going to let me have their mattress but when I tried it out, I could hardly climb into the bed. As it is now, I have to sort of climb in due to the "boxes" that I'm told cover the storage bins below. They make nice places to put books and my glasses at night but kind of block the wardrobes too.

Does anyone know if there are foam pads that are less than 2-3" high - or perhaps a pillow top mattress pad? I haven't seen one yet in my searches.
