It's those radius corners on the 17b that present the problem with a spring-coil mattress. That's why they are custom made.

Hey, Perry, I know this is an older post but I was just looking at these mattress toppers at Costco for our Scamp. Did you purchase a full or queen? A full/standard sizes seems about 2 inches too short but the queen is huge... Thanks!

I was re-reading this thread and noticed that I had not posted my mattress-topper photos. I took a 1 1/2 inch thick foam topper, cut it to size, cut it in half lengthwise (so each piece could be rolled up and stored in bench hatch). I custom-made removable covers out of cotton knit jersey (think t-shirt fabric) with zippers on the end thereby eliminating the need for sheets. I can't begin to tell you how comfortable our bed is now with this small improvement.

Gilda, I love your idea! Just ordered a foam topper today and I may steal your trick. We slept a bit rough on our 15 year old dinette cushions.

We made the mistake of upgrading to a good quality firm 6" mattress, PLUS we got a 2 1/2" latex foam topper. OMG, it is heavenly to sleep on, though it wasn't cheap at all. The mistake is, it is way more comfy than our bed at home, and now my wife want to buy another set just like it for our bedroom.

IKEA has a wide selection of memory foam mattresses with different degrees of firmness and price points. I cut one down for my mini-motorhome and it was great.
BTW: They are easy-peasy to cut with a bread knife or an electric knife.

If its only 2" short it should not be a problem - 1" at each end - you only sleeping on the middle It actually leaves you some room for tucking in sheets and a quilt or duvet at the end.
