I had a custom RV queen mattress made to my specs at Brothers Bedding near Knoxville, Tennessee. For about $900, they use your existing mattress as a template and work with you on the springs, pads and cover to whatever fits you best. About a week. Local Escapees camp 10 miles away.

Google AB lifestyles. You name it, they have it. I purchased a set of custom sheets and blankets from them. They will custom cut a topper for your bed.

Tuft & Needle

I have a 2017 TB 27FB, and recently replaced the oem mattress with a Tuft & Needle Queen. I purchased it on Amazon, along with a $20 electric knife. You can watch YouTube videos on how to cut the foam, it’s very easy.
I just took the oem mattress, put it on top of the T&N mattress, drew the corners with a marker, then cut the T&N mattress with the knife.
Perfect fit, and a very good quality and comfortable mattress.

I did the same in buying the Tuft and Needle mattress, but did not cut it.

Did you remove or add to the thin wooden ribs under the mattress?

For the primary bed we use a foam topper, for the convertible bed we use an inflatable mattress with a foam topper and that is very comfortable. The inflatable is easy to adjust for firmness. Get a high quality one that does not leak down of course if you go that route.

Something to consider; it takes in a number of the ideas above:

In our former trailer, the bed was truly uncomfortable. The spring mattress was wimpy and needed help. We solved it with a 3" gel foam topper and then a 4" hard foam sheet UNDER the mattress, cut to size and shape as above. Presto - no more shoulder or bum on hard surface, and the bed was more comfortable than the one at home!

Hope that helps.

I am 67 and my hips, back & legs hurt all night long on that mattress. I cannot get a decent nights rest. Not so on our mattress at home, which is covered with a Tempurpedic mattress topper. We are trying to find a more reasonable mattress topper solution that won't break the bank. (Tempurpedic mattress toppers are not cheap and we would have to cut it up to boot!) Has anyone else dealt with this issue and willing to share solutions? We are looking into a custom 2" Brookside Memory Foam Topper with Quilted Organic Cotton Covertopper from a company called Mattress Insider. Any feedback from any of you out there? Would be so grateful for any thoughts... Thank you!
I had the same problem with our 2014 22FB. I owned a couple of Thermarest self-inflating air mattresses. I used the duo kit that links them together. It works and is comfortable. I just put them on top of the mattress. They are not the same shape but cover most of the actual laying down area. I would think to purchase it all new it would be around $250. But they are very durable and can be used other places too.
