Foam for new ice castle bed

Recommended Posts

Looking to get some extra foam for the big dinette bed in my ice castle. I just don't get a good enough sleep on the mattress's that are in there. I want to put it under or on top of the ones they provided.

Anyone know where to look without breaking the bank??

Thanks.

Imhavijg a king bed made in fargo for myself. I talked them abiut the same issue. They said give us tue demensiins and we can take some scrape foam from beds they get in for desposal and make one to my specs. Very cheap thay said. This is beds by design in fargo but yu could try mattress factory and other places to.

Are these matresses supplied to Ice Castle by Clarkfield Outdoors?

I've tried to get the foam specs from CO but they answer all my questions but the foam specs. The prices are reasonable but I'd like to know what I am getting before I order.

If my memory serves me correctly, they have it at SR Harris Fabric in Brooklyn Park. Not a horrible drive from Otsego, but I'd call first to make sure.

Is anyone using memory foam (3" or 4") by itself as a dual purpose seating and sleeping? I'm concerned that memory foam might be too soft for seating. Would it be better to use 2" to 3" medium to firm upholstery foam with a 1" to 2" memory topper?

Have a Salem RD with Dinette bed, Jackknife couch, and fold down bunk. I have added to each a 2 inch memory foam pads that I put on top of the cushions. Substantially changes the comfort level. The couch and fold down bunk uses XL twin size and I use a full size pad for the dinette. The pads stash away nice and are out of the way. They are not cheap as the twin pads were about $75 and the Full size was over $80 but well worth it.

I am using the 3" HD36 from Foam Factory. It is much more dense than the Ice Castle cushions. Paid $244 for 10 cushions.

Thanks LRG, that is the type of answer I was hoping for. I am already planning on ordering from foam factory, just not sure what type to order. Is your the HD36 regular or the HD36 HQ? Is it firm enough for seating that you don't sink all the way through? I was actually thinking about going with the Lux regular. Thanks all for your input.

It's pretty good for sitting, almost a bit firm for sleeping. It definitely has some good density to it. Nobody has ever complained about it being too soft. Not sure on the difference between regular and HQ.

I went with the 4 inch HQ. I agree with LRG in that it may be a little on the firm side but it is definitely high quality stuff you'll probably not find at a sewing store. The HQ is about 15-20% higher in price but by LRG's post I have to believe they are close to the same in actual use. I would probably do 3 inch if I did it again. You won't bottom out, it's quality foam. The description is the same except for the density, which I have no idea of what that means in real life.

HD36 Regular

DENSITY: 1.8 PCF

COMPRESSION: 35LB

MEDIUM FIRMNESS

VERY RESILIENT

TECH SPECS

Suggestion: For people who want a balance of soft comfort and firm support while sleeping, our HD36 Regular foam is the best of both worlds, in a resilient, long-lasting product. These standard mattress sizes come in thicknesses of 1 to 6 inches, in whole increments, to give you a mattress or topper as thick or as thin as you would like.

HD HQ

DENSITY: 2.8 PCF

COMPRESSION: 35LB

MEDIUM FIRMNESS

EXTREMELY RESILIENT

TECH SPECS

Suggestion: For people who want a balance of soft comfort and firm support while sleeping, our HD36 High Quality foam is the best of both worlds, in an extremely resilient, long-lasting product. These standard mattress sizes come in thicknesses of 1 to 6 inches, in whole increments, to give you a mattress or topper as thick or as thin as you would like.

Thanks guys, by your descriptions it sounds like I better go with the HD36 as the Lux regular is even firmer than the HD36.

Did you sew your own covers or buy them from another source?

    • Oh, you haven’t seen me upset.  After I miss 5 straight - then I get upset! 😁
    • dog is good too, did not know it then, but when I was over seas and had some and found out later.. it was the last tome ...  would not say try it cause they are my friends....
    • I'm sure it's tasty, but I have never tried dog either. Calm down people, I am just kidding around.   We used to keep landscaping supplies out on a farm in Rosemount back in the day, and blast away at them when they emerged from the barn. Sticking with the Clint theme.............. Farm cats gotta eat, same as worms.   Being a member of the dove family, I am sure the meat is simular.  
    • Remember, he liked the neighbors food after he tried it. 😋
    • I fished most of the lake in scout mode today.  Found walleyes early on midlake humps and bars in 18-24 fow.  Got a couple to go on jigging raps but then they shut off.  Spent the rest of the day trying to pin down a panfish pattern.  Found good numbers of sunfish in shallow cabbage beds(6-9 fow).  None were huge but good numbers of 8-8 1/2" gills.  A few crappies are mixed in with them and some are suspending off the break.  There are also good numbers of sunfish in or just outside the reeds.   Most of the sunfish ran smaller though although there were some keepers there too.  Pike and bass I did not target but saw others do so successfully.   Plenty of bass in the reeds and spinnerbaits seemed to be what most were using.   Troll over the weeds and you will be rewarded with pike.
    • I got primary on the Crow-Hassen with a rank of #21. New experience for me as well, with MBRB, been a member for a few years just could never get a hunt.   DanBo - That was one I had on my list as I have a buddy that lives just a few blocks up from there.
    • try them before you knock them....
    • we've only  used the adapter so far at the campsites, as I've only seen the standard plug in's at the boxes; and only running some lights and AC at the most at one time, no fridge to run
    • That is crazy nice Hoey.  😎   But for $3,400 I'll just keep my dirt flakes on the floor and may be pick up another used sled or wheeler! 😋
