We bought a full queen foam mattress from IKEA for approx $300. Slide your short queen down 6" from the head end so the foot is supported. It is so awesome, my wife made me buy one for the house.

I've settled on a 4 pound density topper. I just can't decide if 2" or 3" would be better on my X213. I don't have a true mattress on my rig, so I'm wondering if the 3" would be better.

I bought a 3" memory foam topper from Walmart at the beginning of the camping season last year for around $115 and it was the best purchase that I have made for our travel trailer. It is breathable and very comfortable on top of the stock foam padding that came with the trailer.

Be sure to know the size of your RV KING SIZE BED. The RV bed sizes are not the same as the house bed sizes.

I ordered my 3-inch topper on-line and was shipped to me all folded up in a nice small foot print package VIA UPS... Cut the wrapping and it pops out into a bed size mattress haha...

+1 for the 4" topper from Wally World. Gave a little more than a bill for it. Best money I've spent on a mod so far... I thought we would have to trim it, but it ended up fitting just fine the way it was...

I kind of figured I'd have to trim the king pad down. Its 72x74 according to the Jayco specs. Looks like I need to trim about 6" off one of the sides of the topper. I won't purchase what I have in mind till the camper is in the driveway and I can measure it myself though.

3" foam topper and a plush feather bed on too of that. I hate going home to my bed there after a weekend camping. Both from Kohls.

We bought a foam topper at bell on sale last year. I thought we would have trim it but it fit the Rv king perfectly.

I figure worst case scenario if I DO have to trim it I'll lay the foam pad on top of the memory foam topper, trace the outline, and trim the memory foam back to match the pad.

We also have a 28BHBE. We've only used it twice, but I find the mattress is so uncomfortable. Does the mattress topper reduce the bounciness at all? We are used to a firm mattress.
