What supports?

X2 Did the same in our Eagle and are both happy.

We tried that on our boat and didn't like it.

We use a memory foam over the stock mattress. My wife had the memory foam for the last trailer, that one had foam mattresses. From Costco, a few years ago, don't know the $$. It is queen sized, so there is a bit of overhang, but not enough to worry about. Still have plenty of room to walk around. Very comfortable.

I went with the 2.5" latex foam topper over the memory since the latex is more forgiving, cooler due to holes in it, hypoalergetic and does not get lumpy. It costs about the same as memory and will increase the weight. You can cut it to length.

My unit came with a topper mattress to begin with but still needed more. Now I love it.

Without having a large outlet to test them first it's a tough choice to find the right one. The toppers are cheaper than replacing the whole thing for now and might give you what you want. JMHO.

We had the mattress from hell when we bought our 29N and replaced it with one from Excel, it is excellent and the price was reasonable. You won't go wrong.

The supports are the gas charged struts that hold the under bed storage platform up. I used a PVC pole to hold the platform up.

We bought a residential style pilowtop mattress. The extra six inches in length makes a world of difference and I'm just 5'11". Doesn't the 25BHS have a "door" on either side of entertainment center? I'd gladly give up the "walk around" for the extra comfort and length. Besides, buying a mattress that doesn't say "for RV use" oughtta save you at least 50% off the top! lol
