We bought a Sharper Image reversible memory foam mattress topper because the original AS mattress was so terrible. We haven't trimmed it to fit the five yet but it has made a world of difference. We liked it so much that we bought one for home even though we already loved our home mattress. The best part is that if one of us gets up in night or has to get up early you can't feel the person getting up.

Our 2013 25FB International received an 8" Rocky Mountain Mattress (cost $635 on 12DEC2012) to replace the stock 7" mattress. We had ordered the Airstream store 600 thread cotton custom sheets for the stock mattress, but they fit the 8" mattress perfectly and would have been really loose on the factory 7" mattress.

Before the trailer arrived, we had the 8" Rocky Mountain Mattresses made for the twin beds in our 2014 Classic (cost was $1,158 for both in June of 2013) along with the Airstream 600 thread sheets. If we knew then what we know now after the trailer arrived, the mattresses could have been perhaps five inches longer to better fit the space in the Classic and thicker. We might even splurge in the future and go to the 10" thick mattress the next time.

We ordered the 12" Rocky Mountain mattress (cost $1,825 on 15 JUN 2015 included two sets of custom sheets, pillow cases and bed pad) for the king bed at home and should have ordered the 14" thick one as I miss-measured the height needed. Their custom sheets are fitted on the bottom and also can have a fitted pocket for the foot of the top sheet so it does not pull out at night.

We have a custom shaped 10" Rocky Mountain mattress (cost $1,825 on 15 JUN 2015 including two sets of 600 thread cotton custom snapped sheets, pillow cases, bed pad and pillows) still rolled up in the home garage and will put it and the sheets into the 2015 23D International Serenity trailer hopefully next week when all the modifications are completed and I can pick it up in Paradise, TX and tow it home.

You can call the Airstream factory (phone 937-596-6111) and ask for customer service to send the two drawings for the twin bed mattress for your specific trailer. They will needed the last six digits of the VIN number to find the correct details. There is a large overview drawing and a detailed measurement drawing for the large radius.

Contact Andrew Melchoir (1-866-733-3132) for questions and a quote concerning Rocky Mountain Mattress products and their linens made to fit the weird Airstream shapes.

Serta 3" Cool Gel Mattress Topper

While preparing for a two week Colorado trip (earlier this summer) one of our concerns was possible discomfort while sleeping on the stock mattresses.
Realizing that the (twin) mattresses are placed directly on plywood and not on top of box springs, there needed to be another layer of cushion.

Having waited too long to order a better quality (curved) mattress I opted for a 3" thick, Serta Cool Gel mattress topper. Fortunately, Kohl's department store had them marked down 50% and then honored a coupon for additional savings.
Because two twin mattresses ( 34"+34"=68") are 8 inches wider than a Queen (60") I purchased a King size topper. I used each mattress for a template and cut the topper with a sharp knife.
Fortunately, our fitted sheets still fit with the extra 3 inches of soft padding.

The best part is they are so comfortable. The only slight annoyance is the 3" topper tends to slide off the mattress. I haven't resorted to securing them with duct tape and bungee cords but eventually I'll look for some elastic cord, Velcro, or other method that is probably available at a sewing/ fabric shop.

Sweet Dreams and Goodnight!

If the mattress is full thickness memory foam, how do you deal with the increased weight? We have a 25 FB and a '12 150 Ford Eco boost.
