    Just built a sleeping platform in my long bed and I need some advice on what kind of mattress I should get. I know a full-size would fit pretty well but looking for suggestions

    I cant say enough good things about my REI Dreamer self-inflating foam pad. It is firmer/better support(and cheaper) than the Exped MegaMat, and deflates much thinner than a foam mattress will ever go.

    At 250lbs, I am happy with most upper end backpacking pads with about 3"-4" of thickness. But in my Tacoma, I use a Solace pad (custom sized/built out of Jackson, WY) and it's fantastic!

    I have an 8” with memory foam topper I picked up at Walmart. They had 4 or 5 to choose from. I trimmed 6”-8” length-wise to fit my platform. Suuuper comfy! :thumbsup:
    This is the best pic I have with me:

    I have a short bed with softopper and platform built in. I use the softopper tent attachment when I camp and that makes the bed a full 7.5 feet long which is awesome. Then, there is plenty of room.
