Looking at jumping into a class C. I really like the floor plan of the couch and dinette on the same side, but would rather keep it short. I also like the triple slide shorter units (Winnie 26A, forester 2501TS, redhawk 26XD). I noticed these shorter rigs with bedroom slides all have a two piece mattress, some fold in half the others slide over themselves.

How comfortable are these mattress'? Can you keep the bed made with the slide in? Thoughts?

Tried searching, but not sure what wording to use and found no results.

Thanks!

Horrible. You might as well be sleeping on the floor.

I have a split mattress in my Forest River MH, split across the mattress, about waist level. We don’t notice it, and DW is pretty picky. We were concerned about the same, but find the mattress AT LEAST as comfortable as that we had in our Lazy Daze. You might question if some responders have any actual experience with them.

If you don't like the split mattress try a piece of egg crate foam. This should level out the split portion.

Can you keep the bed made or do you have to make it up after putting the slide out?

You can keep it made when it's in. You can actually use the bed while driving if you don't mind laying across the mattress,,,not an ideal option, but still possible.

Our Thor 24 H/L mattress is made by Denver Mattress Company which has a pretty good reputation. The break is at approximately the knee.

Go lay on one for a while and see what you think.

We like it.

We converted form a 5th wheel to a class C with a bedroom slide. We have a Thor Four Winds 25FS. Our mattress is very comfortable. We use a padded mattress topper and we transferred it from the previous rig to the motorhome mattress. Like some of the models you mentioned, our class C mattress folds over itself as it retracts. We just fold the topper with the sheets and blanket in half before we retract the slide. It works just fine. We cannot use the bed made with the slide in.

We are extremely pleased with our 2250 Sunseeker with a split mattress. It splits at an angle so when the slide is out, there is no noticeable feel to the split. It is firm, however, so we added a mattress pad. It folds along with the fitted sheet and blankets as the slide is retracted. We've always liked it, other than it is a slide.
The 2251 Forester is the same layout, and we've heard no complaints about the feel of the mattress split from other owners.

Not a big deal and surprisingly comfortable to me. However, the wife wanted a bit more of a "mattress topper" feel so purchased a tempupedic overlay that fits pretty well and makes her more comfortable. Our rig is a 2400R, so trying to sleep on the bed with the slide in is out of the question unless you are 3' tall.
