I just purchased a 28 BHBE with a queen mattress in the front. The most uncomfortable thing ever. I have been up for two nights. Luckily we are close to home so I was able to go home and nap. Has anyone else purchased a RV mattress on Walmart.com? The reviews are good and a previous post suggested it. Also does anyone know if Jayco uses a regular size queen or a queen short. I am home but the specs are in the camper on the beach. Thanks.

I purchased a queen short memory foam mattress from walmart.com. I like it a lot. I believe most travel trailers queen size mattresses are queen short. If yours is 72" long , it is a queen short.

We bought a memory foam mattress from BedInABox® | Comfortable, Affordable Sleep. 120 Day Trial. | BedInABox. We got the queen short 11" thick. We will be trying it out for the first time this weekend. It was shipped to us rolled up and vacuum sealed in a shrink wrap bag inside a box. You unwrap it and it expands back to its original shape.

We slept on the new mattress for 2 nights this past weekend. It is great. Much better than the original mattress.

Late last year I had enough of the stock mattress. I bought a 6" memory foam off Amazon. Best money I have ever spent, except the money spent on the 10" memory foam mattress at home!

We have a Murphy bed short queen (Denver Mattress). Comfort wise it's ok but we wish it were better.. It sinks in on my DH's side of the bed more than my side. We tried a mattress topper but it slid down into the front of the trailer when the bed was up in the travel position. It was a bear to get that topper pulled out and un-stuck (the bed has nylon straps to keep everything in place, but that didn't stop the topper from moving). We didn't want to go through that at every camp set up, so we returned it.
Have any forum members with the Murphy Bed replaced their mattress? I'm curious if it stays in place while traveling and how you like the comfort.

X2 on the 3" gel memory foam. 1st mod we made last year and it really works to get a comfortable good nite's sleep.
Happy RVing,
Jeff

I know it seems like this thread has turned into a mattresses add, but like many others here, my best mod really was my foam topper. We tent camped for many a year and the #1 thing I hated was not getting a good nights sleep. I really do think that was the main reason we got a camper. And well. Not having to find a tree at 3am when this over 50 year old bladder would wake me.
