Mattress

2009 Greyhawk's mattress a short queen, has anyone found something better? I might as well sleep on the floor this one is so uncomfortable like a rock so to speak. I have read the Denver Mattress not so good reviews.

1) Measure the mattress (WxLxH)
2) Buy a standard mattress that will fit.




I bought a really odd-sized one for my last trailer from these folks: Replacement Mattress | Custom Mattress for Sofas, RVs and Boats


Major improvement over the worn-out, 3-section lump of 1983 vintage foam rubber.

There are a number of them available on Amazon that have good reviews. Camping world sells some as well. We just put a foam topper on ours for now but I'll likely replace it with something better next year.

Exact same for us.

Our 4" topper is fitting the bill for now (we put it on about an hour after we woke up from our first night on the bare mattress, and it's been there for over 3 years now), but the base mattress (Denver) is beginning to show some wear. So we'll do an 8" foam mattress from Amazon and keep our 4" topper. It's still acceptable for now, so perhaps next year. We've got a lot on our "to buy" list for the next couple months, and money is "limited"! LOL!!

Pick Out Mattress You Like

We found something that might be called a mattress with a one inch foam topper on our unit when we bought it used. Did not sleep much the first trip.

We stopped by a mattress store and found one we felt good about. Then ordered one in RV size. Best move ever made.

One more reason to take a new to you unit on a short trial run. In the yard or to a nearby campground. Figure out what works for you and what you can change.

I have had two good experiences with them. They specialize in truck and RV.

I replaced our OEM mattress (which was a back killer) with a Brentwood Gel 9 Memory Foam Mattress, RV Queen and we absolutely love it. We are going to get a king for home also when it comes time to get a new one.

Here in Cajun Country (Lafayette, LA) we have a great mattress company (Erwin's Mattress Mart) that is very capable of building a wonderful custom mattress to your liking.

We purchased a '16 Grayhawk 29MV back in Feb. We spent several nights in the driveway testing the coach and quickly realize how bad the factory mattress was. We called upon Erwin's to build us a mattress that has become perfect for us. We took a six week trip through TX, NM, AZ, CA, UT, CO and back home. THE mattress served us "so very well".
