Definitely a class act. I bought a custom mattress from them and love it.

If there is an IKEA near you...check them out. Several years back....we bought a 4 1/2 mattress from them...I think it was about $ fits real comfortable....we love it. They have several choices....they call them funny names and I don't remember what ours was called....but it's a great mattress.

Have you replaced your cushions with a mattress? If so where did you get it? How thick is it? How do you like it? How did you deal with the rounded corners and access to the storage areas? Is the mattress hinged in the middle to allow for access?

Any words of advice?
This is from Rural Tom's wife: (The Princess and the pea) I tried many things on our Casita double bed...I can not abide hot memory foam......I finally bought a bed in a box...from WalMart, a Linus with springs!! I just checked they are $139 and I love, love, love it! It popped open and filled the corners. I replaced all our beds in our homes in Alaska and Arizona with king size ones!! I think they were $150. I also bought a great mattress protector from the company that makes them from I am in heaven when I sleep in our Casita.

Sleeping Well On Cushions

Another option is to bring your cushions to an upholstery shop and have them make new ones with softer foam (e.g. #28). This way your interior look will be preserved and you should sleep better. I couldn't sleep on our original 2020 Scamp 13' cushions -- the upholstery shop guessed they are #40 firmness foam (super stiff). While you are at it, if you suffer from allergies and/or want something easy to clean, you can have the cushions constructed with "faux" leather (vinyl) which is sleek, easy to clean, and looks great. I have all the details and images on my website:

We have a casita spirit and bought a 6Ē double mattress from IKEA. They have a firm and extra firm in that size. We got the extra firm and added a foam topper (cheap one). We used a knife to cut the corners to the curves. We made a fitted sheet for the mattress. We love it. We leave it in place and use the area below for clothes storage. Works perfectly. Couldnít be more comfortable.

I have a Southern Mattress in my Casita and it is the best sleep I get anywhere.

My wife bought a mattress for our house that cost about half what I paid for my Casita and the Southern is far better than that one.

For what it is worth, I stuff my foam topper into a giant builders bag and use a vacuum sweeper to reduce the volume. It fits into the original shipping box.

most every town above some size should have a local mattress maker, like here we have Bay Bed and Mattress, who does custom mattresses with natural latex foam. they have no problems with making any custom shape mattress you want, and their prices are quite reasonable. you can choose any combination of foam densities you want.
