Our Keystone Sprinter had THE worst most uncomfortable mattress we ever slept in. So bad that while visiting family last year we bought a new mattrass, nice pillow top dense foam at local mattress store, fortunately standard queen size was correct fit. It was a few inches thicker, so I needed to also lower the bed platform. Turns out the bed platform was raised by Keystone to make the thinner mattress fit, so all I had to do was remove the 5 inch x 2 inch header beams they added and then made a 2 inch header. Bed is now wonderful and comfy, and the perfect height!! Just a lot of detail work to cut paneling around the bed and re-assemble. When I removed the paneling the staples holes didn't matter, since I cut 4 inches off the panels before re-installing.
The old mattress made a great backing for the backyard archery range; catches arrows very well, grand kids love that mattress, we like the new one in the 5th wheel. Shame on keystone for selling us such junk.

best regards,

First night on the mattress that came with our Cougar, but we added a memory foam topper. Quite comfy.

We bought our Queen 60 X 80 8" thick memory foam from them a few years ago and am very pleased with how it feels and how it's holding up. DW and I both have back issues and IMHO that mattress compares to the one in our S&B that cost about 5x more. Like your fav drink, vehicle, or friend, just because someone else loves it doesn't mean you will. Let us know your experience after you try it out!

We are buying a 28 RLSWE that is advertised with a 'king' bed. It looked a bit small, but then we sleep on a California King at home (I'm 6'4"), so I didn't sweat it. I'd read that RV king beds were 72x80 instead of 76x80, and could live with that no problem - still bigger than a regular 'full' queen, so... Yay!

Then we started shopping for sheets... and saw some RV 'king' mattresses were 72x75... not cool!

Then I read the published specs for either this model, or some other Keystone that came with the RV king mattress, and saw it listed as 70x74. Ain't gonna lie, I said some bad words at that point.

On our last trailer we swapped the POS OEM 'RV queen' mattress for a residential queen. It just cleared the slider, but it worked. Putting a longer mattress in this one may not be feasible as there wouldn't be enough room to get by the bed - it'd be touching the wall.

Kind of a bummer start to what otherwise seems to be an awesome trailer...

I bought a topper and cut it down to match. Works better than nothing. I also have used king size sheets now and they are ok

I got rid of my "death row prison cell" mattress that came with my new camper , and purchased a pillow top queen mattress.
What an amazing difference. It's so comfortable . Even sitting on the one that came with it originally was like a block of cement.

Why do they install poor quality mattresses in these trailers , when they know they will be discarded to purchase a better quality one ?

That is a waste of product , in my opinion.

We bought an 8 inch memory foam off amazon and my husband cut the 4 inches off the end. Works like a charm. Much better than the skinny mattress that came with the camper. Oh it was a king size mattress.
