We bought a 3" foam topper, king size, on clearance, and cut it down tofit our two twin beds. Cut it with scissors, and it made a world of difference. Our beds are now comfy cozy.

We used an Aerobed topper on our short queen. It has dual air controls to control the comfort level. Biggest issue is the air pump and controls. We just fill it to a comfortable level and then cap the air inlets and put all the hardware away. Usually we need to add some air mid season. We found one of these at an outlet store for $100.

Memory foam (doubled if you can spend the $$) ... as primary or as a topper.

You were clear, but I just did not read carefully. We'll be working on this tomorrow, and we'll leave the bandsaw in the garage! Thanks again...

We bought the Sleep Number Queen with Radius cuts. This is my first sleep number, and there are pros and cons.

Pros:
- His / hers own mattress setting
- VERY Comfortable (we bought the extra memory foam topper)

Cons:
- Not good when a 80 lb retriever decides to sleep on the bed too. The Air gets redistributed from the weight of the dog, and no longer is your sleep number working correctly
- Not good if you decide to meet your significant other for "fun" in the middle of the bed. There is a foam divider between the 2 twin sleep number air mattresses that make up the queen bed. You will discover this during the "fun" visits

Thanks to everyone for all the info..happy to report I have located a new 2014 Airstream mattress. Now just working the details of getting it shipped from Dayton to Tampa, have recommendations to use USHIP.com. Will probably use the foam topper on it that everyone seems happy with. Thanks again for all the help.

How does the sleep number mattress conform to the Queen size curved mattress in the AS?

Call Airstream ((937) 596-6111) and ask Kristina or Amy for the queen mattress drawing for your specific model. They can get the image sent to you in PDF format.

I only have the drawings for the 25FB cross frame queen bed and the twin beds in the Classic.

If necessary, Rocky Mountain Mattress ((866) 733-3132 and ask for Lane Robinson) can make the exact size you would need. We have used their 8" model on the 25FB and have that thickness for the Classic.

You need to measure the height above the plywood bed frame to the side pockets beside the bed so the mattress thickness does not block access to these storage areas on both sides.

Got some new twins made for our coach last week. Company in Starke, Florida, called Call A Mattress. He told me they can do the rounded mattresses as well, and they do a lot of them for Airstreams. They were recommended by our local Airstream Dealer, JD Sanders.

Note that while the factory measurement for twins is 34" x 78", in some models there is additional space at the foot of the bed. If the mattress is shoved all the way to the rear (or front on a "FB" model) into the curved area, I could have a really long mattress for the really tall folks. In our Classic 30, we could easily add four to six inches more length.

The center nightstand on the Classic twin model would allow for a ten inch thick mattress and still be a little lower than the flat surface of the nightstand. I think a twelve inch thick mattress would be close to " above the nightstand top.
