Hi

We ordered the Sedona 5.5 inch. They have the correct measurements for the roo (60x 80). I had them put a fold in the middle. It actually folks nicely into the area before the bunk starts. I will try to add pictures

When we are ready to go, it has a deflate setting that I use, and then because it is flat, I can put a lot of extra blankets and other things like that in my front bunk end for travel.

We have only been out a few times since changing to the air mattress, but we are happy with it. I might take someone else's suggestion and even add a topper on that, and since it deflates, the topper can stay in the bunk end for travel.

Have fun....
We also went with air beds from WallyWorld and have had several. The ones we like the best are with batteries and pump built into the bed instead of 110V but I could not find them the last time I looked. The only downside is during cold weather camping your bottom will freeze unless you use a thick comforter between the pop out end and the mattress. In the past 6 years, we have only had 1 out of 3 that has had a slow leak.

Just a FYI if you ever plan on camping when it is cold outside the mattress will act like a chiller and you will be cold. I have used a air mattress before to go hunting in my old pop up and about froze my butt off. No amount of heat or blanket kept me warm. I am in Wisconsin and was is the northern part and it was prob 15-20 degrees out. So just a heads up on this.

My mattress was so bad in our trailer when we first got it, it felt like someone had filled it with baseballs. We have a Stealth 2312 so we took it to Costco, opened up the back and put a queen sized mattress in. A little too wide but it works just fine when crammed in. When camping we are often the last ones up because we are so comfortable.

There's a BIG difference between the traditional mattress that you and most RVs have, and mattresses that hybrids and popups have.
