According to the website, every queen bed in a current model Outback is 60x74 which is the "short queen" The only beds that appear to be any larger are the slide "kings" which are 72x75, which is also a "short king" I didn't see any available 80" bed. However, looking at the front bedroom trailer floorplans, there is access on both sides of the TV, so it shouldn't be any problem to put in a full length queen mattress and just access the bed from both sides of the "TV wall"

My new Laredo has a 60X80 queen mattress & very UNCOMFORTABLE I might add. It would seem to me that the Outback has the same!

My Laredo 291TG has the 80" bed. As for comfort level - unknown as I have yet to sleep on it.
I will state that I did add my memory foam topper to the mattress before I put on the mattress protector. This was because I had this from the last trailer so I figure I should put it to use...

I ordered one last night online, a serta 4" memory foam...I hope it helps as the Laredo mattress is BAD!

We just returned from 5 days (nights) which is our first trip of this season. The trailer performed well, but that DAMNED mattress was anything but comfortable. While it's a "short queen" and my feet hung off the end,
(I'm 6'2"), I usually sleep with my feet hanging off the end of the bed anyway, so no big deal there. What made it rough to sleep well for me was the "sponginess" of the mattress. This is the first innerspring mattress I've ever slept on that let my butt hit the plywood base under the mattress. It sort of reminded me of the old 3" foam mattresses in the old truck campers. I'm not sure if a foam topper will really fix the problem, so if it works for you, please let us know. I'm thinking that the only way to really fix it is to get a good mattress as a replacement, but it seems expensive to pay "full price" for a "half size" mattress and a regular queen won't fit in our bedroom. That being said, I'm really interested in how well a memory foam topper really helps the situation.

Our bed is a short king. At bed time, I pull the mattress away from the wall by about 6" and let the pillow overhang a little.
I'm 6' tall.

Unhappy Outback Queen

Our 2011 Outback "329" has a short Queen mattress. We placed a thin egg crate sponge topper for comfort as we did in our previous RV. Standard queen padded mattress cover as the final topper.

In our 2005 Hornet TT, we bought a custom short queen mattress for $450 and it was GREAT.... (still used the thin sponge topper),

Prior to RV'ing had 2 boats with sleeping "aft cabins". Similar platform beds. All needed some type of comfort additions to preference. We are not large people. I am pretty sure size (length or weight or both) adds complexity to finding the ideal comfort.

I know right now; when in the RV I do not yearn for my bed at home. That's a good indicator of comfort.
