This has probably been addressed before, but does anyone have any suggestions for mattress replacement on an older unit like our 2001 Kiwi 17a?
Thanks for any and all advice.

The various "bed in a box" memory foam mattresses are a good option.
Pick your size, pick the thickness.

I've been considering going with inflatable replacements. Much easier to stow and much lighter.

All it is inside the covers is a sheet of foam. Very likely some small shop in your area can cut you what you need. You can also find options online.

The hard part here is the fold in the middle.

We have a respected local custom mattress shop that says they will make any size. When it is time to replace, I am thinking about giving them the business so I can get a folding mattress with high end foam layers. Then again, I've seen the price of their regular mattresses, so it probably won't be a cheap solution.

I figure I can go about an inch to an inch and a half deeper (2-3" folded) within the space available when the bunks are folded.
