This has been an interesting thread. There seems to are many folks here who have gone to the Rocky Mountain company for a replacement mattress. I just went to their website and see they have a section just for Airstream trailers and how to get the proper mattress schematic from the factory. I sent off the form to Airstream asking for the mattress schematic and with luck they will get back to me.
I know this might be a hard question, but is there any type of consensus as to what is the best Rocky Mountain mattress to purchase? It's not like one can sleep on these things for a week to decide.

Thanks in advance for any input

Cheers
Doug

In our 2014 31' Classic twin bed, the 8" Rocky Mountain mattress is perhaps two inches lower than the center night stand. The ten inch would be about level with the top of the night stand.

We have the 12" King Rocky Mountain mattress at home and like it very much. We have the ten inch in the 23D and would consider the ten inch twins for the Classic in the future. We sleep well on the 8" twins, but there is a perceptible change in comfort going to the ten inch.

With the twins, one can take the factory mattress drawing and actually measure the existing platform in the trailer. It would easy to add four inches to shove the head of the bed to the rear wall (on the Classic) and have the foot of the mattress even with the bottom of the board at the front. For taller folks, another six to 8 inches of length could be added before touching the wall. If one orders the longer mattresses, remember to change the sheet sizes as well.

It is still an arm wrestling match to make up either the twin beds in the Classic or the 23D corner bed.

I forgot to mention that the original factory mattress in the 2013 25FB International Serenity was a 7" mattress. We had ordered the 600 thread Airstream cotton sheets which actually fitted the 8" Rocky Mountain mattress perfectly. We also ordered the same 600 thread Airstream cotton sheets for the 8" Classic twins and they fit properly. These are really great comfy sheets in cooler weather. We ordered 600,mthread cotton custom sheets from Rocky Mountain since we ordered a ten inch mattress and they work, but are not the same fitment or comfort.
