I put a new Queen mattress in our Class B C what ever it is called. It was two inches to long.
First I was going to cut off one end of mattress, I guess I could have bought another RV mattress, so I ended up puting two boards 2 in. wide which stand up from the wall over and under the end of the mattress.So when I close the slide they lift up that end of the mattress and problem solved easy, when I open the slide down goes mattress in place.

I bought my wife a used mattress from a local thrift store for our tt. The local motel chains donate them to the store. Most look pretty good, but you really have to sort through them and lay on them to get the best of the bunch. Some have a peculiar odor to them and others appear to be slightly stained, but most look like they're brand new!! My wife sleeps great on it.

I think your wife would be better off on the floor. Any distance between you and her she would probably be ok with!

It must be nice to be able to afford an RV with a bedroom slide.

A unknown used mattress??? No thanks!!!!! Original poster has the right idea. Many others have replaced their mattress with longer versions and placed an extension under it. Lifting the mattress up to clear a dresser is fine when retracting a bed slide out. Just don't forget to lift that mattress or you'll be buying another.
If I bought a used mattress my wife would see to it I slept alone on it..

That isn't a B or a C! May have a slide, hard to tell.

Nice solution. For others - foam mattresses are becoming popular and one of the benefits is that you can cut them to any shape you need.

Umm,yeah X 1000000 on the no motel mattress, to each their own I guess, but that is one of the biggest perks to us, sleeping in our own bed, Febreeze or not.

You have to be kidding me....Buy a used one from a Thrift Store that cam from a motel? Let's see, how many dozens of people have enjoyed a roll in the hay on that thing? How cheap can you get?

Did the OP give her the used one for her birthday?

My Word, a used one from a motel. He## you don't know what went on or who went on it. Bed Bugs anyone?
