Ambassador Daybed/couch Mattress Missing

I have a '78 Ambassador, the middle fold out couch/bed mattress is missing (frame intacted), can anyone indicate if this is a relatively standard item and if so ideas to purchase replacement (national chain stores?)

Any/all help appreciated.

We had foam cut to suit and recreated one of the foam sections. If you have no luck, we might have one. The shipping, though from Oregon to Texas for an old gaucho mattress might not be worth it. Do you have pictures of what it 'should' look like?

Much appreciated. I ended up removing the couch/goucho frame (leaving the bin storage units as a bottom frame) and purchased a twin size mattress which fits into the space (39"/75'') perfectly.

Do you have any photos...I would like to see what that looks like. We are thinking about replacing the goucho with a hide-da-bed couch, In our 72 31' international. I am open to any ideas on "How to get a nice bed up front" Trex
