That requires the mattress to lay in between the headboard and footboard. My problem is that it measures only 78 3/8" between the headboard and footboard and new mattresses are listed as 60" X 80". Some are listed as 60" X 79" or 60" X 79.5".

Cyoul8r.;

This might confuse things even more. I only have 77&3/4 inches from inside of the headboard to the inside of the foot board. That is 5/8's less than you. My foot board is 4 inches tall (maybe a 1/16 less). It almost looks as though you can tuck the top (head) part of the mattress under the headboard. I didn't measure how much the mattress sits above the lower part of the head board. When I ordered the rig I optioned to the "Serta Mattress Upgrade" which is also stated as 60" X 80".

On the mattress you are thinking of getting did you physically measure it (sounds like you did) or are you going off a spec?

Sorry I don't know much more but I can always measure my rig for you. Let me know how things turn out.

Thanks for taking the time to measure for me. I've been basing the mattress measurements off the mattress advertisings. I then measured my bed platform to see if any would fit. Some mattresses are also rated at 8" - 13" in height which could pose another problem with hitting my head when I sit up to get out of bed. The mattress I have now is the standard original that is about 6" high and it does tuck under the headboard somewhat to fit. If I go with a taller height then I'm locked in to the distance between the two boards. The taller ones seem to be better quality. I see that CW has a Eurotop that is 60" X 79" X 8". That might fit if I squeeze it a little. Just don't know if it's any good. Also, some mattresses have an internal rigid framework which would not provide any give to make them fit. I was trying to see if other Sabre owners ran into this problem when replacing theirs or what brand/model they were successful with.
