My Bigfoot has a short queen mattress (60 x 74). I wonder if I could cut six inches off the Novafoam Topper without ruining it?

I really have not tried any of the foam toppers, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE my down/feather topper.
I fluff it up every week when I wash the sheets, and it is great. For travelling I take it off our bed at home and squash it into the trailer.
I don't find it warm to sleep on, as I think it breathes quite well.

Honestly, before I ordered anything, I'd try out the bed in your new-to-you camper. Then, perhaps try something from home, and order that, if it helps.
We have a fiberfill (dacron?) featherbed on top of our bed cushions, because the cushions are extra firm, to allow me a place to "sink in". It's great. When we're home, I take the topper off the camper bed, and put it on the guest bedroom mattress. Our guest enjoy it, too.
Overstock dot com is a great place to buy any kind of mattress or mattress topper on sale. I recently bought a foam topper for the boat (haven't used it yet) for less than a third of list price, and shipping was peanuts... a couple bucks.
Good luck!

Thanks! My main concern with buying a topper without taking suggestions is the heat factor. I have recently learned Memory Foam is hot so that would not do at all so I need cooler foam options. If temp wasnt an issue I would probably go to Overstock etc as folks get great deals from there. Not sure if (how?) I would return a topper if it turned out to be hot. The info here tells me both how cool different toppers are and how comfy.

IMPORTANT QUESTION: Can you fit the Novaform topper to your bed by cutting it with an electric knife - like people do with memory foam?

WalMart has a GREAT mattress topper, for about $40. it is fiberfill , but it feels almost like down.

Is it cool, Floyd? That seems to be the big issue with Memory Foam is how hot it sleeps.

Actually I bought it for my bed at home, but it just adds soft and comfy and no heat.

In my thread 'first shakedown is upon us' I mentioned how hard the bare cushions are so I know first hand why you all are talking about what the best topper is. Adrian said he uses 4 egg crate foam toppers. Anyone else use these? He also mentioned he finds memory foam hard and hot which doesn't sound good... Any other cushy non hot options?

Novaform is NOT hot and Not hard.....to us....it's perfect. But, that's us. Everyone is different.
