Mattress Sources

Looking to replace single (twin bed mattresses) in a 25 ft front bed Safari. Looking for recommendations on sources for quality mattresses made to fit the contours of the airstream. Please advise.

You might find you can get a much better mattress by trimming a Tuft&Needle to fit the contours. I used a electric carving knife to trim down a twin to fit a space not previously used as a bed. Itís not difficult to do. They are thicker than your typical airstream/RV mattress but far more comfortable.

Jdcamp, thereís several threads on Tuft & Needle mattresses along with alternatives if you search the forums.

Airstream Supply has a whole line up to 10Ē plush:

Thereís several references to Rocky Mountain Mattress (google them). They can get drawings of the original Airstream mattresses for a custom fit.

One other is Mattress Insider - they do custom Airstream mattresses:

Our 2019 Globetrotter Twin came with factory Tuft & Needle and the new 23Ē GT Twin has them but two inches narrower. You might be able to get one direct from Airstream pre-made without having to cut one down.

By the way, we love our Tuft & Needle twins - so much nicer than the queen that came with our 2018 FC23FB.

Good luck!

We had two mattresses made at the Mattress Factory in Phoenix AZ. I had them make them with a top on both side so each year I could rotate them so they would not develop a soft spot. Great folks.

Here are the ones I found through web search. No doubt there are others. I was limited to those companies with queen rv size (prices shown). All memory foam mostly layered.

Zinus 8” $254
Dynasty 10” $299
Live & Sleep 10” $549
Plushbeds 8” $679
Matt Insider 8” $699
Tochta 10” $803
