Mattress upgrade?

We have a rockwood roo 183 (2016). Any suggestions on how to upgrade a queen mattress? The one that came with the trailer offers little support. Any suggestions?

Most people add a memory foam topper. The mattresses are not standard sizes (despite what the brochures say), so you will need to trim the topper if you go that route.

Thank you for the reply. We do have a memory foam topper for each bunk- 3 in total- just wanting to see if there is anything else out there.

Chappie, those are RV queens at best.
Some hybrid owners have had custom mattresses made but they need to be able to fold. Otherwise you'll have to remove the mattress to close the bunk door.
Our 2007 Roo just had foam mattresses that we added a topper to.
Used it for 10 years and slept good. And we're in our 60's.

We always buy the Memory foam 14inch from Costco. Our new 2019 Wildcat Maxx uses the full size so no issues! My motor home has the short queen so a razor knife and a few minutes I just cut it down to the 73 inch length, put a mattress pad over it and works fine. Or go to and RV show and lots of vendors will charge you Way to much for the same thing.

your Wildcat has a real mattress, hybrid trailers don't.
they have to fold up.
the OP will get better info from other hybrid owners, since their mattresses are very different.

I added a gel infused memory foam topper which was a 100% improvement but i am also still looking for a bit more support.

Were now looking for a GOOD air mattress for our 23IKSS. We’ve never cared for the folding mattresses in the Roos. Air mattresses make closing the bunks so much easier.

Listed as an RV or short queen mattress. I got an 8" foam mattress from Amazon for about $200, odd name like zinus, can't quite remember the brand. We put our 2" topper on that. The original factory mattress was a military bunk reject, IMHO. Even with the 2" foam pad, it truly sucked.
