We have a 2004 19ft Scamp 5th wheel and replaced the original double bed--made from the same materials as the seat cushions with a custom cut bed from Mattress Insider. We got the 8" Natural Latex Luxury RV mattress. They were great to work with in the ordering process and the mattress is fantastic. Pretty pricey at $600 but, if you camp a lot and like a good night's sleep, well worth it.

I am thinking of replacing the foam in my camper cushions... just want something a little firmer than the 23 year old stuff that is in there now. Probably not memory foam. Do you think the LUX HQ2 would be a good choice for multipurpose (bed and dinette) cushions?

Steve, if you mean the LUX HQ (code LHQ_2) on the foam factory's website. We found it great for a quite firm cushion to sit on, but a bit too firm for a permanent mattress on it's own. We found it a wonderful base layer for a mattress with a cushioning layer(s) on top. But comfort in a mattress is very subjective.

Look at their dimensional tolerance table to make sure that you can live with the variance from listed size for the mattress.

You may want to call the foam factory and see if they mail out samples. I saw little cubes of foam there when we went there (Macomb in SE Michigan). They also have sample cushions that you can sit (or lay on) if you every go to their factory.

For some reason they appear to have at least 2 different websites, maybe more. You may want to to look at both to check for price differences. When we purchased there was a price difference on the foam we wanted. We brought in the printouts for both websites to the store and recieived the cheaper price. The same physical address is listed on and .

We did not buy a mattress cover. We just stuffed the foams in an old twin duvet covers we had. Two separate layers to make it easier to easier to bend when getting it in and out of the camper.

See Post #9. We also have a Southern Mattress custom made for our Casita. It is very comfortable, even more so than the mattresses in any of our bedrooms. They will drop ship free to a business but not your home. It cost us about $600 or so, if I recall correctly.

We just bought a Big Foot and will use the OEM mattress in it this season. If it is uncomfortable, we will give it to Good Will and get another one from Southern Mattress.
