Murphy Bed Mattress

We have a 22 model RP Melburne Prestage. We don't like the hard Murhpy bed mattress. Looking for any information on finding another mattress. I think I could keep the upper part and just find a replacement for the large part. Hoping someone has already done this. It looks like the Melburne and the 26M Redhawk use the same Murphy Bed.
Thanks

This was my solution for our 26M

I was all set to order a custom mattress but decided to go in a different direction. We love our latex mattress and really wanted to have the same for the RV but the most we could find was a mattress that had a foam base with a latex 1-2" layer at the top.

I had nothing to lose so I decided to order the following toppers

One is a 3" firm and the other is a 1" medium. I then cut the existing base and top mattress width-wise and pulled out the existing foam. The top mattress was a bit of a pain as it was sewn in several spots. Next, I had a zipper from the link above sewn into both pieces. Now all I had to do was add both layers of latex into the covers and I was done. The mattress looks factory but it's way more comfortable than it was. It's also heavier as latex is not lightweight so I give the bed a little lift as I'm putting it up to compensate for the weight.

Here is a link showing how another person had a custom mattress made.
