Custom RV Mattresses, anyone bought one for 2551?
« on: September 29, 2021, 03:51:06 pm »
Well, after 6 years and 72,000 miles, it's time for new mattresses.

Anyone have any experience with any of the online custom RV Mattress makers?    Did you like what you got?  Did you visit factory?  Etc.

Do your original mattresses have zippered covers?  If so, just buy a 6" thick mattress from Walmart and cut it to the same dimensions.  You'll get two twin mattresses from one queen size.

We did that with our 2350 mattress as shown HERE

In my last unit, I had original mattress factory custom 2 mattress for us.  Depending on the style/springs size you chose, they will make them whatever size.  Ie: 3Ē springs have to be a multiple of 3.

A couple of options.

https://www.militarysupplyhouse.com/

https://www.foambymail.com/ 

Both places offer custom cuts. I believe foam by mail also offers generic sizes that you can cut yourself.  Both places offer several options in thickness and firmness.

Iíve purchased from foam by mail for rebuilding some seat cushions. Quality products but I have not purchased mattresses from either.

No, not zippered so not an option.

Thanks!

This is where we got ours for our 2551.   https://sanitarymattress.com/

I do not know if they do outside of Michigan.  They made us two mattresses to our specifications.  They are the old style cot mattresses made with springs and cotton.  The most comfortable mattress we have ever slept on.  We are not fans of the foam type mattresses so these are perfect for us.

When we need one for the house this will be our go to place.  We paid $500 for both of them.

We'll.. Let's see how they do.   Foam By Mail just got my order, 2 to 3 weeks until delivered.

Thanks for the suggestion!

Don, which heft and thickness did you order? Iím in need of new mattresses myself. I used them for new foam to rebuild my dinette and they were great in assisting me in foam densities and suggestions. I know theyíre not cheap by any stretch.

4" of LUX HQ for the base and 3" of memory foam on top of that, all wrapped (not glued) in 1 mattress cover.  For me, I got the 5lb memory foam and for Patti I got the 4lb memory foam.

Delivered price for both was slightly under $700 so $350 each for a custom memory foam mattress.   

I hope I made the right choice, we did get samples foam cubes from them beforehand.  The original mattresses are all memory and we put 2" memory foam topper on that.   Over the last 6 years the originals ended up compressing so much, that it doesn't take too long in bed now before our butts or hips and shoulders are essentially lying on the plywood base.

Don. I look forward to hear how you like them.  Not sure but I think they offer custom fit covers as  well. Probably half the cost of the mattress themselves

Joseph,

Yes, the covers are custom also.  They are included in the price I stated.  They are a $69.99 ea so 2 mattresses $140 but that was included in the almost $700.

We replaced our mattresses (2552) through Tochta.  They are out of California and can make custom sized.  We got the Utopia and they sleep like laying on a supportive cloud.  Plan to replace our home mattress with one when needed

Gary, Tochta reviews look good but at 700 each itís more than I want to spend on a recreational vehicle mattress.
