New Mattress for 17' Casita Freedom Deluxe?

We would like to here any feedback for those of you who have purchased a mattress from Southern Mattress or Rocky Mountain Mattress (or any other manufacturer). We have a 4" memory foam topper over our seat cushions but have decided that we want to leave the bed down permanently and want to purchase a mattress made for the Casita. We don't want to spend money and then not like the mattress. I am 6'1 and 250 lbs and my wife is 5' and 110 lbs and she does not like to roll into me! As you can imagine we love a good sleep! Thanks! Any feedback would be appreciated!

We got a Southern Mattress this summer after getting our Freedom Deluxe, and its the best money spent so far.

We bought a Southern Mattress for our Casita SD shortly after we picked it up from the factory and it was money well spent.

I am in the middle of an upgrade project for my travel trailer...same idea...replace the cushions with a real mattress.
Start by measuring the available space and then go to a mattress dealer and explore the available sizes. I decided I only need a mattress and no box spring.
I discovered that a standard "full-sized" mattress would work just fine.
The dealer also told me custom sizes were available from some manufacturers.

Taking this approach allows you to check out many different selections and find something that works best for you.

Good Luck ! And Happy Camping !

Completely Satisfied

We purchased two mattresses in Feb.2016 from Southern Mattress for our 17 Independence and could not have been more satisfied! Having spent about 15 weeks in our trailer last summer, it was home and we wanted the comforts of home. Neither my wife (who can be fairly picky) or I (225 lbs.) ever spent an uncomfortable night. These two mattresses are as good or better than anything we have in our home. The workmanship is first class.

Additionally, Ann at Southern Mattress was a blessing to work with. We ordered a custom made (to fit our trailer) 5+2 mattress and had it delivered directly to the factory so we could embark for our first adventure from the factory. They were there waiting for us as promised.

I don't think you will be disappointed. We traveled the first 5 weeks with the custom mattresses on top of factory foam mattresses. This was not especially convenient as the beds were extra high, but we off loaded the factory mattresses once we were home and now all is well!

We have a 17 SD and our Southern Mattress was delivered to Rice TX and installed before we even hitched up. We have never experienced anything but a wonderful night's sleep in our Wee Cottage.

Would we need a box spring as well or just put the table down and set the mattress on top of the wood? We have a heater and don't want to block the intake for the furnace. How high are the mattresses from Southern Mattress?

If you leave the rear dinette set up as a bed, then you just lay the "custom fit Southern Mattress" directly on the wood. Some folks even store the original "wood" table top and cut a piece of plywood to fit. Southern Mattress offers several different thickness, but the most popular is called "5+2" and is almost 10 inches thick.

As I remember, we paid about $600 for the mattress. Shipping to Rice TX was about $100.
We bought a new foam mattress locally for our stationary house and Southern Mattress was a much better bargain. But I would call the nice ladies at Southern Mattress (800.227.8701) for current pricing.

Do you cover the 10" mattress with a full or queen sheet?

Thanks Pete! Was there any difficulty in getting the SC mattress into the trailer? I thought maybe that's why you had the factory install it.

We had the mattress shipped to the factory so that it would be available for our first night in the new Casita. Also, I think that it was a little cheaper to ship to a business rather than to a residence. My wife tells me that full size sheets fit pretty good. Some folks have custom fitted sheets made.
Moving the foam mattress in and out of the Casita is not much trouble because it bends easily.
