We have a 60x74 standard mattress in our Class A and we are planning on going full-time.

 

What would be the best mattress to replace it with?

Replace with any mattress that is comfortable to you.  You will not need a box spring because the mattress will be on a wood base.  I suggest that you add an anti-skid rug mat under the mattress.  These are similar to the anti-skid mats used on shelving but a more course weave and come in standard rug sizes just cut to fit.  We have a local firm that builds mattresses and is easier to work with than a national firm.

I extended my platform to accomodate a full queen, 80 inches long.

Yes it was a new one.  I bought a memory foam made for an rv.  It's not supposed to get hard when it cold.  I added a 6 inch wide platform on the top edge of the end of the engine box.
