Thank you for the suggestion! Would the latex toppers "slip" since it's stacked on top of each other instead of one 6" piece? Are there other mattress companies that could possibly do a "custom 6" profile" medium/firm latex mattress? We're hesitant to buy the soft latex mattress as the medium feels great; and our experience with soft memory foam mattresses makes us wary even though a soft latex would probably feel different? Thanks again.

Latex layers stick very well to themselves when stacked, and many companies make latex mattresses by stacking layers without using adhesives. When stacking latex layers it's difficult to move one relative to the other since they stick to each other so well, that you have to raise the upper layer and put a quick 'wave' or ripple motion through the layer to get it to reposition itself relative to the lower layer. You can see an example of layering latex with the wave motion in this video for reference.

Soft latex is quite a bit softer in feel and less supportive than medium firmness. You could check with some of the other latex sellers listed as TMU Trusted Members (for example Arizona Premium Mattress or Latex Mattress Factory) to see if they might have a 6" layer of medium Dunlop or offer a mattress similar to what you have from SoL.

Thank you! I looked into a few other TMU members and they have 6" mattresses under the "RV Mattress" section only. They also do not have a wool cover and are all cotton stretch covers. For example, SleepEZ's RV mattress is a 19-20 ILD Talalay and 2lb density foam. It appears that most of these 6" mattresses are a 3" latex topper on top of a 3" foam base. Having had an unmemorable experience with a past medium foam mattress (sinking in, aching everywhere), would you have any insights into how a 3" latex/3" foam base would compare to the current 6" medium latex we have from Sleep on Latex? What density latex and foam would be comparable? Thank you!

I don't have any experience with that type of layering, so I'd suggest contacting SleepEZ to ask them. They have very responsive and helpful customer support and would be best qualified to answer your question directly.
