Might you have a California King? It's 4" narrow and 4" longer than an eastern king mattress.

California King = 72"x84"
Eastern King = 76"x80"

I never realized there was actual regional difference, but you would be very hard pressed to walk into a store around here and find Eastern King sheets, only Cal King.

I complained to Jayco warranty about the Denver Mattress in my 2014 model and told them I wanted it warrantied, but I didn't want another mattress like it, so they gave me $336.00 toward a new one. I bought a short queen 10 inch innerspring mattress from Walmart mail order for $450 and LOVE it.

I've posted this several times when folks start complaining about their Denver Mattress, but it's been a while. So, here we go again.

Like so many others, I purchased a 3" memory foam mattress topper, but after my first camping trip, I was really dissatisfied with it. At the suggestion of another JOF member (sorry, I can't remember who), I tried putting the M.F. mattress topper under the Denver Mattress . . . like a box spring. Not only did it make the bed incredibly comfortable, but it helps to keep the cold air from coming up from the pass-thru - through the gap between the bed platform and the side tables.

Since my mattress is not a pillow-top, I also added a 1" corrugated foam rubber mattress topper on top of the mattress, and a heated mattress pad on top of that. This combo is the most comfortable bed I've ever slept on, and I stay warm & toasty without wasting propane heating the entire trailer.

Sleep number makes an RV mattress. My parents have one in their 5er. They love it.

Well, apparently I need a 6.5" mattress b/c of the slide and the mattress going under some furniture. Maybe I'll try the 3" memory foam deal. Its either that or a $500 specialty mattress.

Camper Mattress, Short Queen, 60x74, 6.5 Inch Thick, Firm, Odyssey

I just might try this. I found a 4lb 3" topper on Amazon for a fraction of a new mattress. Are your results really that good? Putting it UNDER the mattress - would have never considered it.

Roy,

We have 2016 Seneca. The mattress is horrible. We have beefed up the base but it didn't help. The 2016 were advertised as having a Denver Mattress but ours is a Mastercraft. I hate to try to d al with Camping World. Do you have a contact at Jayco? Thanks.

Cdrip, I worked through the Jayco support line. They offered to pay $350 after purchase of replacement. I replaced with the Sleep Comfort from CW. It's an inch too high so deflating and protecting the edge that slides under the closet furniture is necessary.

Right now the pump sits on the floor under the bed with the power cord pulled through a hole near the right side electrical outlet. DO NOT attempt to attach the pump to the underside of bed as it will slide forward and either hit the foot of bed at curves or items stored under the bed. I placed the pump on the floor and suspended the air tubes with bungee cords on the bottom of the bed. That should keep the tubes from snagging when they move with slide.

While messing around under the bed I also noticed a gap to the outside. Fix one, find one.

I just have a regular (house type) full size mattress in mine, with a 3" foam rubber/memory foam mattress underneath it to act as "box springs". It's kind of heavy, but it sleeps good. And it was free.
