Beds

I have FC 23D. I find the cushions don't fit as indicated on the dinette and lounge when converted to beds. Anyone else have trouble making these things comfortable? Cushions seem to always slide off in middle of night.

Good question... I am interested in this as well. Our dinette doesn't drop flush with the wood framework of the surrounding bench, and the bed is not even.

Table is not intended to be flush. Small rubber stops on bottom of table keep it from shifting from side to side.

Has any one replaced the twin mattress (34 X 78 with curved edge? If so where did you get them and which model number?

We plan on buying a memory foam mattress off amazon and cutting to fit. Way cheaper than a custom spring mattress. And way more comfortable.
We've been sleeping on this one for 6 months and it's a dream come true.

I have considered replacing the matresses and this idea seems like the best one. Thanks!

To all of you that are considering cutting a memory foam to fit. We did just that 4 years ago for our rear twins with 3 corner beds and we have had 4 years of great sleep. I found the best prices online at the Wal-Mart site. It is an eight inch thick King. Cost about $150 plus having them covered.

To keep you cushions from slipping and sliding put yoga mats or textured vinyl shelf liner under the cushions. no more slippage :-)

Thank you! That's a fantastic recommendation.

Your basic electric knife will trim down a memory foam mattress nicely but it will be pretty much toast by the time you finish. Bed, bath and beyond will sell you one for about twenty bucks. Money well spent.

IKEA mattress for my Bambi bed replacement

We need to replace the back mattress on our '04 Bambi. My first thought was a simple memory foam mattress, but I read on 'Forum' that someone used an IKEA mattress with the memory foam...but I'm not finding the post, argh.
If someone knows about using the Ikea mattress please let me know which one/type you purchased. Thanks.

Did you have your mattress covered after you cut it? Thanks

I just cut down an 8" memory foam mattress that I purchased off of Amazon for my wife's side. She said it was great. We already had 2" memory foam toppers so I cut that to shape also and bonded it to the foam of the mattress using 3M Super 77 spray adhesive. We just used a regular mattress cover on top once we were done.
