My husband isn't happy with the mattress because he's 6'2" and his feet hang off. But, I don't think a longer mattress will fit.

yup, the short queen is 75" x 60"; standard queen is 80" long. Adding a 5" longer mattress in the 27DSRL would mean you would not have hardly any room to walk around the mattress once you enter the bedroom. One of the trade-offs, I presume, in having an "Ultralight." Luckily, I'm 6' and shrinking in height, so the short queen will be just fine. ... (and please don't ask about me becoming more gifted in girth!)

I just ordered an innerspring mattress-in-a-box from Camping World. We bought one of these a few years ago for a different Jayco TT we had at the time and it was very comfortable -- but we like a firm mattress. These mattresses are on sale right now with free shipping. Even though it will still be a little short, I think we'll be much more comfortable.

I measure 14 inches between the end of my sleepnumber short queen and the sliding door in my 27DSRL. I could slide by in the 8 inches left with a full size queen. On DW side I have mounted 24' tv on the wall. She is short enough to pass under the tv on her way to the head.

Last night was our first night with our new innerspring mattress from Camping World. What a difference!! It was worth every penny and I would definitely recommend making this purchase.

Strangely enough, we find the stock mattress in the 27DSRL pretty comfortable. I've had most of my lumbar spine fused so fairly firm support is a good thing. What I would like is better air flow and ventilation in the bedroom. It gets darned hot in the bedroom with two people sawing wood, even with both bathroom doors open, windows cracked open at the back of the trailer and the exhaust fan running.

I slept on the new mattress topper last weekend! I slept great! Momma was not with me so I can't say for sure but my guess is she will like it too!

My wife and I both felt the stock stubby queen in our 26SRK sucked. I went to a local family owned mattress store and bought a full sized queen mattress (about 10" thick) that was on closeout. Paid $349 and it's the best money ever spent. Feels just like our bed at home, although a tad smaller (we have a king at home.) I'm 6'2" so my toes still hang off the end unless I get my head right up by the headboard. No more morning backache.

Ditto on the interspring [w/eurotop] from camping world. Have sales all the time and can purchase on-line with free shipping. Comes in a box which is pretty scarey but you'll be a believer after the first and the 21'st night. Kept the one we bought 2 years ago for our previous TT and put it in the new 2014 we picked up in May. The new Jayco supplied mattress is in a plastic bag out in the barn. Bought another reg sized one for the houseboat last year. Same great sleep and 10X better than the reg bed mattress that was replaced.

I ask Jayco if I could purchase an upgrade when I ordered the new one. They don't offer that as an option. I suggested it would be a popular option if they would offer it. Seems a waste to pitch all those reg. foam mattresses that they put in the new one. If you are under 150 lbs the original isn't that bad. Its way better for anybody if you pop [about $400] at Camping world.
