mattress replacement advice

We have a 28 foot Safari with a side-to-side bed in the rear bedroom. The bed appears to have radius corners at the foot [not square]. Has any one replaced the stock mattress with the Select Comfort [Sleep Number] RV short queen mattress?

Will this mattress fit or would it hang too far over the foot corners?

We sleep on one at home and would really like one for the trailer if it would fit.

Sleep Number Bed

Unless you're really sure you like this high end air mattress, I wouldn't invest in one for the RV. I too looked at them, but a had a friend put one in her home - and be unimpressed. I slept on it one night and was convinced it wasn't all that impressive.

I elected to have the original mattress factory make a custom mattress for my bed. Ask for 7 inch foam, not the 12 inch depth if you want to keep the weight down. I'm fulltiming, so I won't stint on a comfortable mattress.

We too sleep on a Select Comfort at home and love it. We put the short RV version in our 30ft Classic and it's fabulous! Go for it.

Has anyone out there looked at putting a Tempurpedic in a 28' Classic? Our bed is in the rear and would seem to be the same size/shape as the one that started out this thread.

We have one at home and miss it each time we head out.

Would also like to hear about the Tempurpedic for the A/S - Queen. Has absolutely been the best bed we've ever had at home. Heck, they say NASA developed it... I can see why those guys like to fly the shuttle... not a bad ride.

Mattress for 19' Bambi?

What about the 19' Bambi (2004)? Absolutely the worst mattress I've ever slept on. Would love advice on a replacement or topper. Thanks!

Many here (like me) have put memory foam toppers on their mattresses and that helped immensely. Our 2004 International trailer had a very hard foam mattress but our 2008 International trailer came with a much more comfortable mattress.

Smile Mattress for 19' Bambi?

Thanks! Maybe 2004 was a bad year for mattresses? Do you have any suggestions for where I can get a memory foam topper? And do I just trim it to fit the corners or is that even possible?

We have a 5000 series Sleep Number at home and love it. We tried a 3000 in a 5er we had previous to the AS, and found the cheaper bed lacking by comparison. If one would fit in my AS, I would spend the money for the the 5000 today.

We too have Select Comfort at home, but even having square bed in our motorhome I didn't want to spend big money on new mattress. We bought 3" topper and put it on top of very old spring mattress. Work very well. Not as well as Select...

I got mine (Serta) at Overstocks.com and cut it with my sister's electric knife. Trust me, that is the ONLY way to cut foam, and the ONLY reason for electric knives to continue their existance.
