Smile Replacement Mattress

We replaced our short queen with a queen from Rocky Mountain Mattress. They cut it to fit perfectly. I built a short extension to the bottom of the bed to support the extra mattress length. We used the mattress every night during out 3-1/2 month, 10,000 mile summer trip. The mattress is all we had hoped and more.

So can all the companies take the twin bed mattress Airstream drawings and custom make mattresses. I know Rocky Mountain can.

We put in a longer mattress base so we could have a full size queen tempurpedic mattress. Not as much room to walk around the bed, but it works for us.

Ditto again. Go for the Premier short queen radius. Much better than the Deluxe. Holds pressure well in case you are boondocking without 110 for a couple of days.

We have a non brand name memory foam mattress in our AS and I don't know how I ever slept before it these last two decades. I live on painkillers. I have arthritis in both hips, chondromalacia patella in both knees, and nerve damage that presents as pain down the side and front of my right thigh. I'm going to save up money and buy one for our queen size bed at home. This mattress is my lifesaver.

Like above, added about 6" memory foam and used an electric serrated knife to 'trim' the corners ... length is just right to add enough 'length', yet is soft enough to walk past without being pushed over.

We have a 27ft, Classic Twin. My husband is 6'4' tall and I am just a little over 5ft. Went to the Original Mattress Factory with a brown paper drawing/pattern of how wide and long we wanted the bed, and 1.5 weeks later, he was a really happy camper. Excellent comfort, fits the curve, and at a great price.

So much great information, thanks all for advising! After reading and rereading this thread we are leaning towards a traditional mattress and will choose from something mentioned here. I too look forward to sleeping through the night without significant discomfort.

We replaced our horrible $20 factory equipment mattress with a Tempurpedic and all is well.

We ordered a sweet custom short queen mattress with individual pocketed coils and sooo much squish, from Jordan mattresses and bedding. Picked it up yesterday and slept on it like a dream last night. Thanks for everyone's input!

Our original RV mattress died in under one year full-timing. Eight years ago we had a local mattress company cut a 10" thick latex mattress to our template for corner bed in our 2005 International 25CCD. Then we added a soft topper to it, 'cause the latex mattress turned out to be much firmer than we'd remembered in bouncing on it in the little store.

If we could do over, we would try to find one around 6" thick and not so firm. The 10" thick is way heavier than we could have imagined. Just not something we thought to check, 'cause the original one was incredibly light.

On the upside, our bed is as good as any we've ever slept in anywhere. Eight years in on this mattress, we wouldn't give it up for anything (except a little lighter one.)

We just put in a Sleep Number Premium short queen radius corners at the foot. Very comfortable, light weight, and you can set the firmness on each side separately with a simple wireless remote. Perfect fit on the Airstream platform.

As the two air chambers will expand with a change of altitude, if driving up you will need to decrease the pressure and reset when you settle in for the night, a simple procedure.

Camping World has a terrific sale on them right now, over $500 off list price.
