We did the same. Purchased a queen then used a sharp knife to cut it down to size. Been sleeping very well since then.

I purchased two of these 4" memory foam bed toppers for 2016 rockwood roo queen bunk ends. Very, very impressed. I paid $127.00 each (free shipping) becaused I waited for "used" Amazon warehouse deals (just slightly damaged packaging), or pay $139.00. On a "guys" fishing trip last week, the two who slept in the bunk ends swore they had never slept that good before and both bought the topper for their bed at home. Weather was very cool in Michigan and we used mattress heaters underneath to great effect.

We also got a cheapy mattress that comes with the trailer with a fantastic 1 year warrany. Terrible bed. We bought a 1 1/2" memory foam topper from Walmart Sleep Innovations 1.5" Memory Foam Mattress Topper - and it made all the difference in the world. We also put on a heated mattress pad/ Sunbeam Waterproof Heated Mattress Pad - Did not have to change mattress nor spend a fortune for, what is now, a very comfortable bed.

Mattress Topper

We went all the way and replaced our electric mattress with a custom foam mattress. Very plush, very supportive, $1000.00, but worth every cent. Highly recommend.

Another vote for Novaform from Costco. Love mine, and it doesn't get as hot as some foam toppers...

Hard as rock mattress

We have a 2008 Rockwood; mattress is hard as a rock. I added a 3" memory foam topper from and it made a HUGE difference--now we can sleep. Thicker would be too much.

I tossed and turned, it's so darn hard. I know we should cough up the money for better mattress but that'll have to wait. What is the best THICK topper you've found that you love, that won't break the bank? We're going back out in two weeks and it's needed before then.

Thanks in advance.
Just make sure that you get a topper with the right density rating no matter what you buy. 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. Some sleepers prefer a lower density rating, especially if they sleep on their sides and want a softer sleeping surface. A higher density rating means the topper is more durable, and it will give a firmer sleeping surface, too.

I would not even waste your time and money, you can get great memory foam mattress for not much more than a topper, that is what i did, i was the same, have a comfort sleep at home (have a big back and other medical issues) But the local (Quality Home Furniture | Bob's Discount Furniture) has a great (his brand) of temporpedic nock offs that i purchased 5 yrs ago (after 1 weekend on a brand new mattress) i did the same sleept on the recliner. SO just try that did the same thing you are looking to do but it was only about $100 dollars more for a much better solution in the long run.

My husband and I purchased an awesome 3" queen size 4 LB density memory foam topper from eBay. We love it! Delivery was quick and a great all around transaction. $137.89 plus FREE shipping. Here a link to it. 3" Queen Size 4 lb Density Memory Foam Mattress Pad Bed Topper Made in The USA | eBay You do need to purchase a waterproof mattress cover anytime you have a memory foam topper whether it's this one or another brand.
