Go to any mattress store. Measure your mattress first.

Double that. Our Windsport had a king bed, so we got king bed sheets only to discover its not a real king size, but an "RV king". So had to special order a mattress pad and sheets.

There are several on line sights that have quality memory foam mattresses that are MUCH cheaper than those rip off mattress stores, seriously $3000 for a mattress.

We have a Denver mattress in our coach. I would be just about as comfortable sleeping on the pedestal without mattress.

There's not much sugar coating on that SuperD!
We have a RV king in our ACE, one of the first "Mods" my wife did was to purchase a memory foam topper. Walmart had 2 and she selected the more expense one (of course). It feels wonderful. She had to prune it down to the RV King-size. There are mattress companies in our area that offer to make custom sizes. If it were me, I would want to tryout a product in the showroom and then see if they can make it in the size needed.

We ordered one from here and love it, any size you want. Just as nice and soft as the one we had at home, but be ready to pay for it.

Can you tell me what thickness you've order as a foam topper from Amazon?

Actually a foam topper was one of the very first things I bought for our coach, a 4" one. I only had to lay on the Denver mattress about 30 seconds to know I wasn't going to like it. Our Tuscany was the same way, hard as a brick, bought a foam topper the next day after sleeping one night.

Yep, the firm as a brick denver mattress was not slept on one night. First thing I bought for the rig was a 3" gel memory foam topper bought on sale at Kohls.

Replaced first Denver Mattress

Put up with our original Denver mattress for the first 15 months. HORRIBLE even after getting a high end topper. We were about to give up when I called Denver Mattress customer service and told them our mattress was broken down. After sending them a picture of the mattress tags, the CSR apologized and told me that mattress wasn't broken down - that is normal performance for that entry level mattress. The nice CSR worked with me and gave me a deal on a replacement. After 90 days of use, I can only say "thank you". It is very comfortable.

After 28 months of ownership (about 20 months in the coach), I remain convinced that the best bang for the buck, remains our Challenger. Yep we've had issues but never any that we didn't work through with Thor. The original mattress however isn't even a a little thump for the buck. In plain language it sucks. Thinking back to the glossy brochure that alluded to the mattress as a "premium" mattress isn't even close - it is a low end foam pad.

I will attempt to find the name of mattress but in the mean time, call Denver mattress and ask. Use the number from their website.

Us too, first purchase for the Windsport 34f was a topper for the Denver mattress.

DW went to Sam's and got their most expensive. It does not fit correctly (too big) and we keep saying that we are going to cut it down, but have not yet.

Grand kids love the topper, it like jumping into a big soft pillow. I must admit that I look forward to jumping into it too.

Look around your area for a company that manufactures their own products. We found that on some models Thor uses sizes unique to that model. We could not find an off the shelf, even from Denver Mattress the manufacturer of stock one and the only place to go was Thor. Not! We found a store here in Orange County "Custom Comfort" that would make one to our specs for about $750. We are so happy we did!

Did you take measurements for them to build yours or do they know what the specifications are for the measurements to make it work in your coach?

I took the measurements of the stock mattress. Thor called it an RV King but it was not the size of the other RV Kings we looked at.
