Q: WILL I NEED TO REMOVE THE CASITA CUSHIONS?
YES. Consider: The mattress is 9" thick. The factory cushions are 4". The additional height would interfere with vents and table heights. Also, should you need to get under the benches, it would be that much more to deal with. Additional height would also put you that much closer to the bottom of the windows, and to the upper cabinets when you sit up in bed. There are also owners who use the bed as a place to sit, and the additional height makes it a bit more awkward for the horizontally-challenged.
Q: WILL THE OPTIONAL FACTORY FOLDING KITCHEN SHELF INTERFERE WITH THE MATTRESS?
YES, it can. The factory-installed shelf does NOT clear the mattress when it's in the stowed position; however, it can be left up with no issues, even while traveling. Check out the modified-to-fit folding shelves sold by
Another solution is to mount the shelf higher to be level with the range top.

Q; WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM THIS MATTRESS?
These mattresses have a very dense 7" base foam, a 1" layer of a softer foam, and then the multi-layered quilted top.
All are designed to be compressed, rolled, then encased, sleeved in plastic, and shipped. Compared to other mattresses, they're lighter, more compact, less costly to ship, and easier for customers to move around. And yet they're still astonishingly comfortable!
Over time and depending on usage, your mattress may show signs of dipping where there's been constant sitting or kneeling. The Full size mattress at the front/center/aisle is especially susceptible due to the ever-popular Casitanastics feat known as the "Climb Over," or when accessing the back upper cabinets.
To be covered under warranty, the dip must exceed 1-1/2" and be photographed with a straight-edge and a ruler.
