We replaced our mattress with an RV queen size but doesn't have the notched corners. Works just fine. In fact, sheets are much easier to find and don't cost as much.

No, we make do with the fact it's a little long. The comfort, the ability to use our standard linens, and 26,000 miles, 29 states, and one province have proved the concept.

Just want to be clear....we put on a "down feather" thick mattress pad.

I re read it and it looked confusing to me. Good luck in your search,..btw, out pad costs as much as a new mattress, I'm sure.

You may want to check out this link. After hearing all kinds of good things about his product, we just made a purchase for our at-home bed. We've only had it a few days now but so far we love it. They have a 120 day return policy (they pay the shipping) so you've really nothing to lose by trying them out. They stock an rv queen and I believe they also do custom.

The OEM mattress has long been the subject of complaints. We bought a 2" topper rated "medium". They had hard, soft and medium, and not knowing anything, we chose medium. It is comfortable. You might try to add another 2" soft one to get the feel you want.

The bed was too short for us, so I screwed a piece of plywood to the luan plywood under the bed and moved the mattress down 4". My wife made a bolster out of scraps to fit in the space at the head of the bed and I cut a piece of plywood to fit into the bottom of the bolster—this gives fitted sheets something to hold onto. We use standard queen sheets, a lot cheaper than special RV sheets.

We had a local mattress factory duplicate the factory foam mattress' in our 25 Safari with rounded corners. New mattress' are inner spring and are much better than the skimpy foam pads which came stock. Cost for two twins was a little over $400.
They were still not soft and supportive enough so we purchased memory foam pads (about $70 a piece) at Costco and cut them to fit.
Now we wake up without pain and stiffness.
