Finding the right mattress for a trundle bed can be very tedious at times. It has to be of the desired height and measurements which can easily fit in its space. Even a tiny mismatch in the size of the mattress makes it unusable. It has to be light weight as a trundle bed is not fixed and has to be shifted everyday before it is used.

Ideal type of a mattress that can go on a trundle bed should be flat and not too bulgy so that it can easily slip into its space. It should be light weight so that it is easy to draw and push regularly. It should not have too much height as it has to leave some passage for ventilation. The mattress should be durable which can be used on a regular basis.
