28 Queen Mattress Radius?

Just to make sure, I’d like to verify that my queen has a 6” or 8” radius? Tough for me to tell, especially looking back at my pics. Pics with different lighting below:

For my Globetrotter 27FB Queen I ordered a 60" x 75" with 11" radius on the foot corners from Mattress Insider. They actually have a page on their website with common Airstream sizes, but you have to search to find it.

Joe15601,
Thanks for the quick reply.
Is your topper quilted or non-quilted?
Overall, how do like the mattress?
Any hot spots while sleeping?
Thanks.

Mine has an 11" radius.
AB lifestyles carries sheets for Airstreams with those dimensions.

Sorry for butting in, but I'm leaving my 2.


Mine is pillow top only on one side.
Overall, it's way too soft, has a dip in the center making rolling over difficult.
Hot? No.
Thankfully, I can sleep through anything, but if I full timed I'd change it.

FWIW, several of us have converted to the Sleep Number r5 Short queen radius with individual side adjustments. Works for us, though you do have to remember to lower the adjustment/pressure to <20 when traveling to compensate for changes in elevation.

We use the inverter to adjust the firmness when not connected to outside power supply.

I think the Sleep Number mattress is lighter than a conventional mattress.

We have tried several different beds over 12 years. Finally made a short plywood extension and bought a regular size queen high quality mattress. Standard sheets and blankets. Only a minor nuisance getting around the corners and how often do you need to go there anyway?

Dont get me wrong and dont take offense and I appreciate the suggestions, but what Im really interested in is the radius cut of the bottom corners so I can order.
Airstream Life Store - clueless. Airstream Mother Ship - clueless. I have messaged Tim Maxwell, Airstream Area Rep. (we will see).
The tag on the mattress reads: Elkhart Bedding Company Model # EB17S09.
I called Elkhart Bedding and left a message. They are probably busy servicing customers that are interested in buying a thousand of these.
If anyone has a 2021 or earlier FC model with the same mattress model #, I can go to the Airstream Life Store and cross reference to my model
Thanks.

Sorry for the upsell.......

When I wanted to order a new mattress for our 19' Bambi corner bed, Airstream supplied me with a PDF called "Corner detail-mattress contour".

Maybe there is something like this available for your situation. Just a suggestion.

You also mentioned mattress topper: we still have the original queen mattress in our 2005 TerraYacht and topped it with a shearling wool topper. It is great at temp control and adds a luxurious feel underneath. Wool rules.

I found someone who knows what they are doing. A rep with Airstream Supply Company advised that the 2022 mattress is the same as the 2021. The radius is 11.
I think Im going to go with them rather than another brand who didnt know much about AS, but said yea, we can do that. The difference is $79, but the piece of mind is worth it. They did say Im looking at four (4) weeks for delivery.
Thanks again for the help.

The T&N mattress that came with it did not have enough support, so I ordered a different style (hybrid) mattress that is working well. Good support & temperature.
