Based on Jayco`s measurements, it would appear that a King Size topper would required due to width and then shortened with the curve for the rear bunks. I would never have thought of the electric carving knife that we bring out once or twice a year and I intend to try it. Once you add 3 inches to the thickness of the bunks, will you have to use different fitted sheets ? Thanks for sharing your experience which may reduce my trial and error.
We ended up purchasing 2 of the 3" Full Size memory foam toppers from Wal Mart. The only problem with these is that they are 1" narrower than the bunks so you will have a small gap on the side. Quite frankly I don't think it's noticeable enough to warrant paying for a queen to cut down.
Once you deploy the topper and give it 2 days to fully expand, just come with good scissors and cut small sections to make your curve. Better to start outside and keep trimming your way in.
Luckily this brand was one type of foam, so it didn't make a mess.
We use regular sheets, and just tuck the extra underneath. Not worth the headache trying to get them altered for the curve.
Our trailer is at the dealer getting some repairs, so when we get it back this weekend I can share photos.
