Mattress

I have a 2017 Sunseeker. The mattress is a 5inch, 60x74 . Terrible mattress. No stores sell that size. I have to have a 74 length because the bedroom is in the slide out and when closed the mattress is right against the wardrobe. We have tried toppers but the mattress is just junk and the topper does not help. 4x6 sheet (after cut) does not work. Guess I have covered every suggestion. Where to buy one? DWs back is hurting. You know about happy wife thing. Thanks, Al

That mattress size is called an RV short queen. You probably can’t buy that mattress size locally except by going through RV dealers and other sources that support RV items. On line, you can find mattress pads and sheet sets in RV short queen sizes.

LCI sells RV mattresses. I have no idea on their quality. They may have even been the supplier for Forest River. https://store.lci1.com/shop-by-depar...attresses.html

etrailer also lists RV short queens, but again, I know nothing of the quality. I don’t trust etrailer’s listing because I looked up a mattress for my RV, and they are displaying the wrong size and type. https://www.etrailer.com/mattress-20...tm?&Redirect=8

We got our short queen (74"x 60") from Walmart.com. 8" Cool-Gel Memory Foam. Sleeps better than the expensive Temper-Pedic at home. Got it 4 years ago, $258 delivered. A host of short queens are available from Walmart.com.

If you have the room you can add 6"-8" to the end of the bed and then get a standard queen size. That's what we did - got an 8" memory foam mattress for around $250 and it sleeps as good as the $1000 King in the stick house.

The first post says they don't have room for a longer mattress.

We put a memory foam mattress topper on ours. After sleeping on it for a week, again, I like it better than our mattress at home. The firmness is great for me, I sleep on my stomach/side, and my back feels great in the morning. After getting home, my back has been sore.

We live in Oklahoma City and a friend told me about a local mattress company in downtown that would redo the mattress. I took the old mattress in and they rebuilt it using the frame. It is the best mattress that we have ever been on.
