Now I wish that I had them cleaned as I have had much difficulty in finding a mattress that measures 32"X75". None of the major mattress companies offer this size. I have looked at some of the foam mattresses and I don't care for them. Any help or advice will cherished.
Replacement mattresses should be as close as the Yellow Pages for your closest metropolitan area. When I needed new mattresses after purchasing my '64 Overlander, I consulted the Yellow Pages and found Lebeda Mattress Factory (you will finder similar companies in most larger metropolitan areas). I was able to purchase mattresses custom manufactured to the size needed for my Overlander by paying for the nearest standard size plus a $75.00 charge for customization. You can find Lebeda Mattress Factory at the link below:

The beauty of these custom mattresses is that you can choose the firmness and style that you desire, and the company then makes up the mattress to your specifications. I was so well satisfied with the mattresses that they made for my Airstream that I now have the same model mattress set in the master bedroom of my home.
By doing a Switchboard search, the following turned up as leads to mattress manufacturers in the Columbia, SC region:
