I purchased a Zinus brand innerspring and foam mattress from Amazon. $220. Very comfy.

Unless CW is the only place to find what you need.... I would try to buy elsewhere. Superior mattresses are available in many places. RV sizes can vary a bit from standard so make sure you know what you are getting. Thickness can also be an issue especially for bunks. Easy to get quality foam mattress custom sized for what you want/need. Spring mattresses could add significant weight if that matters. You can get custom sheets also.

Mattress in our Tango was a short queen.

There was plenty of room behind it, so I removed the hinged plywood lift up panel at the back of the bed that accessed the under bed storage and replaced it with a bigger piece.
Then we just put a standard residential queen in there. Worked like a charm.

Our std queen is a pillow top, and a lot heavier than that cheezy piece of stuff it came with, so I had to put in heavier cylinders to hold the storage access open with the mattress on it. Had to change the angle of the cylinders too.

There are a zillion choices for a std queen, and they are usually cheaper than a short queen for RV's

CW will charge you twice the price for half the product.

Would you shop for a camper at mattress World? Determine size and find a mattress maker. They can make any type you want and quickly.

Is there anything special about the mattresses in an RV?

Can i just buy one from a mattress store?


Short Queens - are the width of a queen but the length of a full.
If your camper came with a Short Queen, then a standard queen might not fit.

The rounded corners have already been mentioned.

One thing to check is to make sure you can get your new mattress in. Many campers make this difficult.

I would not buy a mattress from camping world for any reason!!!! Go to mattress business but make sure you measure your RV size carefully.

We bought a Zinus from Amazon the exact size as the original. They come in a few different thicknesses, we got an 8”. If you buy it, be sure to leave it in the box and lay it on your bed to open it. It expands and it is a lot easier when you have it already on your bed. Best purchase I made for our TT.

I bought my queen short on Amazon ($180). Then I bought a 2" foam (not memory) topper at WalMart ($35). This set-up makes you want to stay in bed all day........Yea. It's that heavenly. With the extra 2", it makes regular queen sheets fit nicely.

Common issue with new RVs, and our very first mod after returning from our maiden voyage. Overpriced and low quality are all that are special about stock RV mattresses, luckily we measured and it was a true queen making it simple to purchase our mattress anywhere they were sold. Adding a high quality memory foam bed topper was the finishing touch to blissful nights and restful sleep while RVing.
