'92 - What thickness of foam

Hello Experts,

This question is about the thickness of the foam on the Gaucho. I want to order new high density foam for the gaucho and new windowseat I made (all the same thickness) in my 1992 Excella Classic. I'm not sure - I've searched and read much - some use 5" and some use 6" - Does it matter?

Does it make any difference with the transformation to the bed? or when the back is in the 'couch' mode?

I plan on wrapping the foam with batting to make it a softer look but I've read that should not be considered when ordering the thickness of the foam. I am also going to make it one piece rather than 3 seperate-looking cushions across.

Thanks for enlightening me.

Decision

I decided and have ordered the 5" Lux High Quality foam - a full sheet runs $203.65 (82x76) and will be enough to do my gaucho and new window seat with a tiny bit left over. Brian's cousin owns an upholstry shop and will lend me his foam cutting tool. I might have him cover the couch sometime and now I'll have enough foam to do everything.
