    you could start with the OEM - our 410 has a tag on the foot of the mattress with the original company. I contacted them and they still have the templates. Didn’t do it yet though because I want to be able to feel the replacement in person. They’re also not cheap...

    I too want to replace a mattress in a 2000 310 DA. I'll search for the tag and see what happens....Kirk Out

    That’s an interesting route, how’d you get hooked up with the foam guy? I’m always willing to give a bit of diy a go to save 1.5-2 boat bucks

    In Michigan they have foam fabricators that also serve the public....so things like pillows, mattresses ...everything foam. You go in pick your density...we bought a king mattress used the old original mattress as a pattern and an electric knife to cut the foam... it worked out very well

    here I found the website https://www.foambymail.com/

    I did something similar. Bought a king foam mattress from IKEA, cut it with an electric kitchen knife, foam topper from Costco. The foam topper from Costco is amazing quality. I went through two from Amazon that weren’t cheap and offered pretty much no support. The one from Costco was a game changer.

    Some Walmart stores stock a king size 4 inch mattress that we cut to fit and it is the best mattress I have slept on. I think it was around $200 ish.

    Amazon has sales all the time on zinus 6, 8, or 10 inch foam mattresses. Typically under 100 shipped. Just get your turkey carving electric knife to cut
