We have a 228D and we added 1 1/2 inch memory foam on top of the mattress. It does make it harder to close the top, some care must be taken not to over stress the latches that hold the top down, those screws are small. I would not go any thicker on mine, but we also have all that extra canvas from the slide out dinette that adds to the bulky ness when closed.

Thanks to all who responded to my question about getting a better night sleep in our Palomino PUP. In the end we bought a 2.5" thick gel memory foam mattress topper (about $150 at BJs) and having just come back from four nights in New Hampshire my wife declares it a success. There's no way the roof would close with it on the bed but fortunately we can roll it up and stow it on the floor before lowering the roof. The rolling up is a little bit comical as the foam acts like the Blob but with a few bungees we got it to fit.
Thanks again.

Glad it worked out...we had thought about getting one when we had our PUP, but we wouldn't have had that much room to store it in the floor. We had so much other stuff in there. If they could only add a few more inches to the roof, problem would be solved or else put a better mattress in there.

Did you put this on the front or rear bunk? I am asking because I have the 66" bunks front and rear on mine. I am looking and I only see queen 60" or king 76". I would hate to buy the 60 and feel like I am rolling off it all the time. But I also do not want to cut up a new topper.
