I added the 2" memory foam and made a slip cover for it using one double flat sheet ( width of a double sheet is enough to allow you to cut out the two sides for the foam if you cut it sideways not length wise) so the foam stays clean if I need to stow it away. Big improvement on comfort.

I like your idea about the quilted memory foam mattress, and make the bottom sheet to fit it. How thick is the memory foam and where did you purchase it?
Thanks,
Laura

THEN..
Ours is a cloth covered, edged and machine quilted memory foam topper, bought at Camping world. It holds it's shape better than plain memory foam.
IT claims to be 2" thick, but I think that is probably the raw memory foam before it was sewn. It has a "grippy" underside which keeps it in place.
I'm not sure it is still available. Ask at Camping World.

NOW..
This is as close as I can find (in two minutes) to what we have, but it is not the exact product. We have had ours for several years so maybe ours is no longer available ...

We've got one of these on our Stearns and Foster at home and it is VERY comfy...

Another approach would be to shape a raw topper then sew two flat sheets together with one open end, like an envelope, to hold the foam, IT should still fold or roll up.

I purchased a futon bed mattress from Wallyworld, it came rolled up and I merely took it inside and cut the string, viola, new bed.

Hungary response

I visited there in July of '93 and '94, then several more times until most recently in '09. I only learned a few words like nim and egan, but it seems like everyone there was learning or already knew English, so language was seldom a problem. I sure miss those Pick (brand) sausages and all the great fruits and vegetables that would just be coming in when I got there in July! They were having the air races over the Danube the last time I was there.

My question of the moment is what do other "eggaphiles" use for a mattress or mattress cover to make the seat cushions more comfortable? Will any standard size mattress provide a good fit with the rounded corners in the back? Also, interested in hearing from any body that has bought a new Scamp and has experienced build flaws in their new trailer like the gentleman that bought a trailer with water lines not connected and an off set roof. P.S. So glad to have found this site with nice members willing to pass on a wealth of ideas gained from experience.
We use a 4-inch non-memory-foam mattress on top of the cushions, and a standard quilted mattress cover. We just cut the matteress to fit the corners and tuck the cover underneath it. We also have a front dinette and leave the rear bed up all the time. It is very comfortable to sleep on. I don't like the memory foam myself, although I understand lots of folks like it.
