OK, the details. The existing mattresses double as the dinette seating base. They have a solid board as the bottom, foam on top and fabric on the top of that. Most of you know the MO.
Has anyone ever replaced these with a more comfortable mattress? Did you make a platform to compensate for the built in bottom to the existing mattress? Did you go with foam (seems like I'd be replacing existing with nearly the same thing)? Anyone try a custom spring mattress?
Any observations greatly appreciated.
Hi, I also have a PW (2004) and have beds set up as twin, but as it is just me, I use one side as a bed, added an extension on the bed side that extends the width of bed out to meet the table stand, and put a 4 inch Memory Foam Mattress
on top of the “sofa” cushions, then cover it all with my mattress pad, then sheets, etc..use regular twin sheets..
I think bed is about 30” wide w/ my extension..(more room to roll over!)
