Where to Buy a Custom Sized Good Mattress for our v Berth

The foam of the cushions in our v berth is getting old and uncomfortable. We are looking to get a new custom-sized firm and supportive mattress for the v berth in our Passport 42. Can anyone recommend any resources, online or local to the SF Bay Area? Much appreciated.

We just ordered new foam for cushions from the Foam Factory, Foam by Mail, foam products, cushions, mattresses, pillows, seats, sound proofing, memory foams, mattress, pillow, and they did a great job at a good price. Chuck

Foam Order is in SF, down on Howard Street.

But it's much less expensive on Overstock.com to order the serta 4" for around $100 with free shipping and cut it to size your self. It cuts like butter with an electric carving knife. Just use the old cushions as a template!

Put the froli under it and it will be better than your mattress at home!

I have dealt with these folks in the past: Foam Mattress Pads | Memory Foam | Platform Beds | Bedroom Furniture | patio cushions

Good quality, fair price, quick shipment, and easy to deal with.

Do you have a link to the product that is cuttable?

Did you ever consider latex? It doesn't absorb water and won't loose it's cushion. I bought a used standard double and cut it in half with an electric knife. I sewed it back up by hand. Best sleep I've had in years.
