Looking to find a decent replacement but the odd size is hard to find.

I'm kind of looking for the same thing.  I put a 2" memory foam cover on the old one, which helps, but the mattress has a big sag in it... 

 

My bigger problem might be how to get the old mattress out of the camper!  I think they were put into the slide before the slide was mounted to the camper.

First time poster since I am not slated to buy an Outback 210 until this weekend, but since King Size bed and comfortable were my 2 main requirements I had done a bunch of research on this topic before making my purchase decision.

 

https://rvmattress.c...ss-buying-guide

 

Best solution I could come up with is that 34x75 RV Bunk Mattress (his) and place it next to a 39x75 RV Twin Mattress (hers) and then get a foam pad for the whole thing to smooth out the seam where they meet.  This works out to 73x75 and solves the problem of fitting it in the door.  This way she could pick her mattress and I could pick mine...

The next best option if you want a single mattress you can fit through the door would be to buy a memory foam Short King from the link above for $360-560 depending on thickness from 6-14 inches.

Something that has to be considered is mattress height.  On our 250RS, there are plastic retainers for the curtains on the sides of the rear slide that will interfere with a tall mattress.  I haven’t measured the height of the current mattress yet.  I found this one at Amazon that is 6” thick.  Everything else I have found is at least 10” thick.   https://www.amazon.c...lv_ov_lig_dp_it

Being 6’1” the short queen wasn’t working for us. Because of price and not wanting to give up without trying first we decided to go to a local supplier and got piece of foam to fill the space at the head of the bed to reach the length of a standard queen. Friends told us of a mattress topper from Costco that they use in there trailer and their bed at home. After installing it in our trailer we did the same thing at home also. All of this information has been in previous post I started in the past but all of my previous participation here has mysteriously disappeared.

Good Luck
