Default Mattress

We're looking to get a new mattress for our 214WSD and looking for some advice. I've done some searching and know that there are numerous online sites, but how to choose? Mattress likes/dislikes are so subjective.

When we've bought home mattresses we always hit a few stores and tried them out, testing for feel and firmness, etc.. If we had a normal size bed in the trailer I know I could do the same, but we have a 60" X ~74" short queen and no stores around here seem to stock something in that size.

Guess it depends on the type of mattress you prefer. Some of the "home" coil spring mattresses are better when placed on a "box spring." That's usually not an option in an RV. But it may still work? Some like the memory foam mattresses. While we have a TempurPedic at home, we found a great short queen on Amazon. Comes rolled up, fits in the camper, unpack, unroll, air out and we've been wondering why we didn't upgrade from day one.

Factory camper mattress are a very, very poor excuse for a mattress IMO.

The XT276 front bed uses a short queen. None of the local stores carried a short queen and wasn't interested in ordering something I hadn't laid on*

Check mattresses out at local stores and bought a regular queen .. only a few inches longer than a short queen. It hangs over the foot end of the bed a bit, but no big deal as didn't have to spend a bunch of $$for a shorter mattress.

* Would have liked a sleep number mattress like at home but the cost was more than willing to invest for the amount of use it would get.

First thing we replaced when we bought our FunFinder was the poor excuse for a mattress that came with it. I went to a local foam shop and got one of there foam mattress cut down to the length we needed they also altered the cover to fit, can not remember the price but it was reasonable. We chose a firm non memory foam but that was our preference they had lots of options to choose from. We've sleeted over 300 nights on it and it still is comfortable as the day we got it I find it as good as our home bed that we paid many times more for. This is our experience good luck with your search.

We replaced the mattress in our 2018 21RB Funfinder after the first season. I tried pads and memory foam but nothing did the trick. This company specializes in RV and other custom mattresses. There's lots of info on their site, and they are extremely helpful over the phone. Money back guarantee, and you don't have to send the mattress back - you donate it. We got the 5.5" Elation with some gel foam and several other layers, and we love it. I recommend
