Anyone have advice on where to buy a new queen mattress for a towable rv? It's a new rv but the mattress doesn't seem very padded and might want to replace it one day soon, any advice on brand or where to purchase one and how much they generally cost?

You might want to look at a topper for your mattress. We got a 2 in. from overstock.com and that took care of it for us.

Is the topper foam or what is it made of? How much do they cost? Heavy or lite in weight?

Thanks

As far as heavy or lite-- I guess I would say it's not to bad. It doesn't affect the lifting shocks to much. So I'm satisfied with that.
Here is a site for you to look at. There is just about anything there you could want, if you decide to go that route.

If your bed is a Queen, remember to buy an RV Queen, not a regular queen. The RV Queen is the same width but a bit shorter than a home bed. I used a topper in three RVs so far and we've been very happy with them. The one we are using now has what they call "memory foam". It keeps the wife on her side!!

If you are buying a queen, measure your old one before you buy. RV's have two types of queens, a short queen that is 60x75, and a standard queen that is 60x80. Our cruiser has the standard queen.

Ours is a regular queen also, it was one of the things on our "shopping list", our last had a short queen. We added a 2" memory foam from wally world and a mattress cover/heater with dual controls.

That full size 60 x 80 queen was one of the main factors in buying our ST.

I have a memory foam mattress at home and really like the memory foam topper. Ours came from Costco but there are several sources.

We just threw...well with a lot of sweat...our Verlo mattress from the house. It is big, heavy and minimizes the space between the end of the bed and the wall, but it is SO worth it. Sleep better in the camper than I do in the house....

Thank you for the good advice... Sounds like a memory foam topper is the way to go.
