We tossed the factory mattress, it was a joke. We got a queen size memory foam mattress from Ikea, and it is amazing. Certainly worth the investment.

Wow, my wife and I obviously need to replace our home mattress because we feel better after sleeping on the Denver Pillow top in our trailer than we do at home! Or maybe I drink too much when we go camping and could sleep on a rock! Yeah, that could be it.

I loathe the "mattress" that Jayco uses. It's just a four inch polyfill mattress, and it's not a lot different than just laying down directly on plywood. We have a three inch memory foam topper from Costco that helps a bit, but I'm going to buy a 6 or 8 inch foam mattress to try and solve the problem altogether. Biggest issue for us is headroom on the X213 is tight even with a four inch mattress. Doubling it could make for late night headaches.

We have plenty of headroom but I did notice that the trailer you have does seem short

Make sure you order the correct size. My old trailer required an RV 'short' queen (60x75"), but my 2016 Jay Flight uses a standard queen (60x80"). I believe Jayco uses both sizes depending on the model trailer you have.

Our 2017 jay flight has a short queen
Thank you

Thank you everyone. I like this forum the advise is awesome and everyone has been great to talk to so thank you again everyone.

We will get a topper (cheap foam) for this year and save and for Christmas buy a really nice mattress.

I full time so a band aid wasn't my solution. A Sleep Number was. Much better and lighter also.
x2, except we bought a Comfortaire. Like it so much we bought one for the home.

Yes, the X213 has a short king, 75x75 or so, and no tolerance for anything longer. I was going to pick up a custom 8" foam mattress from foambymail and put our 3 inch topper on that. If that doesn't fix it, I'll just deal.
