    We use this com: http://www.efoam.co.uk/ The staff were very helpful and the delivery was as scheduled. We chose one of the reflex foam options but they will advise you according to you needs - I was pleased that they did not try to over sell me their products - I even suggested that I might consider the more expensive option and they advised me that I would meet my needs by buying the cheaper option; I would be happy to use them again.

    The only recommendation that was a bit optimistic was the time that it took for the foam smell disappear - they suggested that it would go in a few days or a week. I had to keep our new mattress in our conservatory for 2 months before the smell went - we would not have been able to sleep on it while it was still releasing the smell. The smell may go faster if the mattress is kept in a MH during the warmer months but don't plan on using it as soon as it arrives.

    Not sure if they are still trading but there was a place on the A 27 at Chichester that advertised custom mattresses for motorhomes and boats. It was just before the Stockbridge roundabout when travelling east, next to the garage and car sales.

    I spent ages trying to decide on what mattress to go with. In the end I went with Ace Foam ( http://www.acefoam.co.uk/ ) as they were getting really great recommendations on another forum.

    I ordered a 4" thick foam, with the top 1" made in memory foam, and couldn't be happier. It's comfier than my bed at home.

    We bought a silentnight memory foam one from Amazon for about £150. Trimmed it with bread knife (our bed is a non standard size) and it's sooo comfy ::bigsmile:

    In a previous existence I was an upholsterer.
    I and many of my professional colleagues used Ace Foam. They are very knowledgeable and you can rely on their advice. When I moved to the North East they were still able to deliver very quickly.
    Quick rule of thumb, ensure that, if your mattress is also a seat, you don't "sit through" the foam. In other words stipulate that the density is suitable for sitting on as well as sleeping on.
    Thickness is not so important as density.
    Ask them to supply with a Dacron wrap. This will help you to insert the foam into the cover as well as reducing the friction between the foam and the fabric, when in use. Thus ensuring that the foam does not wear out the fabric from the inside. Believe me, foam can be extremely abrasive!
