A follow up to my post above:
We got our new Verlo this summer, and it is excellent. It's almost 4 inches thicker and is too heavy for the under bed storage struts, so I replaced the 80# struts with 150# struts and is good to go.
The custom radiused corners is a 25% upcharge making it $900.

We never keep the mattress that came with the trailer. We ALWAYS bought a top of the line mattress like the one we sleep on at home. The Jayco's we have purchased always have accepted a queen size residential one. They just fit but they fit. We have never had a cheap one and those memory foam ones in our opinion are junk compared to a premium one. Just saying at 6' 3" and with a not so good back I don't discount what I sleep on several months of the year!!

I bought a new 2020 Grand Design Solitude and the mattress is with out a doubt the worst ever. It is a Michiana Evergreen 72x80, so called RV King. After a few weeks it has 2 depressions where we sleep. I first thought a topper might help, but after a couple more weeks, I knew it never would.
If these depressions were in your back yard, it would look like 2 bodies are buried there.
I want to buy a new mattress but have no clue what is a good brand, RV King 72x80 so you can't buy them just anywhere. I don't want to buy the same thing only under a different name.
Anyone else had the same problem & what did you buy.


I'm curious about this as well.

We will need to measure, but ours has a king bed and it's very, very hard. I usually prefer a firmer mattress and it's even too hard for me.

I don't know if we want to go for standard king size mattress. Weight is a concern, because our tongue weight is already pretty high.

I'll follow this thread and see what options there are.

A full king is 76x80

Now this is specific to west Detroit, MI Telegraph 5 mile area but save for the name it's king of Generic.

There is a business on the east side of Telly I think between 5 and 6 (north of 6 is the last place you want to go on that side of the road, Trust me (Cemetery in case you don't get the joke) Tri-County matress Factory.

They can custom make any size, shape, thickness, firmness you want.

Many major cities have companies like that There is one near Flint, MI as well but I've never dealt with 'em.


Home was where I park it. but alas the.

We have this one in our RV and a full king at home and love them both. We got them on Amazon and have had the 12" one in our RV for 4 years and no sign of breaking down.
