I just wish the foam toppers were a little more sturdy. We roll ours up and place ii on the dinette. I have to be careful that I don't stick my finger through the thing!

Maybe a difference in the simple low density mattress toppers and a memory foam type mattress topper. Compare the density ratings. Memory foam mattress toppers are given a density rating in pounds. A higher rating means the memory foam will remember your shape better and last longer without sagging. The ratings can range from less than 3 pounds to more than 5 pounds.

If you really want a serious upgrade, Verlo can make a totally custom folding mattress tailored to you. We had them make a folder for our 21ss after having both grades of OE and various toppers. Storing on the dinette was a must, but easy as can be over mattress and separate topper. It was money well spent, and we've since had them make the queen for our new TT and our home king.

So then you can fold the mattress with a mattress pad and sheet?

Yes. But the topper foam can't be more than 2" or it'll be almost impossible to fold in half. We bought the ABLIFESTYLES sheets. Fit great, expensive though.

We have 2" foam toppers which we leave on the beds. With the door closed and 2 fantastic fans on high, I can close the bunks myself without difficulty, and with confidence that nothing's sticking out. And that's despite the extra bulk created by the toppers.
