We are thinking about using this in our sailboat ? We’d need a full size – the width & depth would be perfect, however the length is about 4 inches too long. There is a “lip” edge around the bottom, would the mattress be flexible enough to be placed inside the bottom edge & it wouldn’t buckle or pop out ?

Any thoughts?

TKU. Beth.

Hi Beth,

I suspect that it would fit as 4 inches is not that much and all layers are flexible, but to be 100% sure you better contact the manufacturer directly.

Can I use a wood slat base )separated by 5 inches)?
