Thank you!
Simone my wife deals with Discount Foam at 6035 Fraser St, Vancouver, B.C.
604-324-2927, we use the densest foam #2050 as we like a firm bed but buying foam is up to the person who sleeps on it. There are two people who own the store Shawn or John. It is on the west side of the street if going north from 41st or going north still on west side, about 45th and Fraser and there is lots of parking in the back lane as community parking lot in back. they also have a back door to get into the store saving u the walk around the block.

I used to sell mattresses. Memory foam is known to be amphibious (itcgets hot when it is hot and cold when it is cold.) The 4 in. memory foam topper that came with my FGRV is very heavy and does not roll up into a small roll. Where do other campers store these things during the day while uaing rhe camper?

Good foam is expensive. I paid around $150 for a 4' X 6' X 4" at an upholstery shop but it's still going strong after 4 years. I got it custom cut to my dinette cushions (in bed configuration). Very comfortable. Foam, $150; good sleep, priceless

I do not use my rear eating area, it is a permenant bed. I went to a foam mattress maker and he cut the mattress for me. An interesting thing about commercial mattresses is that they have a denser foam at the two long sides of the mattress to keep the foam from compressing over time when you get into and out of the bed. Because the Scamp bed was less than the full mattress size he cut the foam so the stiff edge is where we get in and out of the bed.
