Bed- hard as a rock

Had my first night in my SV264. I didn't get the better mattress option but don't think it would help much. I could feel the hinges through the mattress as well as the difference in height between the fold up storage door and the other surface underneath. What's the best way to soften it up? Put a piece of foam rubber underneath? Or does somebody make a set of box springs to put under RV mattresses?

Thanks

I've read a lot of posts where people are happy with using memory foam toppers. We just use the mattress ours came with. It's heated and quite sufficient. We sleep like babies. Of course, we're usually so spent at the end of the day from work and play, we'd prolly sleep well on a bed of hot coals.

It is residential queen size. Replace it with a premium quality mattress.
We got the upgrade mattress and liked it. We also added a 2" memory foam topper and we like it more.

When we ordered our 5er we did the matress upgrade and while it's comfortable we still added 3" memory foam. Big difference.

We went with the 3" memory foam and no mattress upgrade. Works great.

X2, but we also opted for the upgraded mattress.

I added on top of the original mattress, a piece 1" thick convoluted foam(egg crate facing down) with a 3" thick memory foam on top.

This sleeps as good (maybe better) than my expensive S & F mattress at home.
