I had one custom made by Duvalay (their Duvalite range) for my French bed - it was much more expensive than you've been quoted, but I have been very pleased with it. It has proper vertical piped edges and is very well made out of, I believe, a sandwich of open lightweight foam and memory foam.
It, too, is over 20cm thick compared to the 15cm foam one that came with the van.
The original mattress was in two pieces, which made access to the under-bed storage pretty easy, but had the huge disadvantage that the piece with the cut-off used to move down the bed during the night to the point where it would foul the bathroom door, which was pretty annoying.
So, I had the replacement made as a single piece on purpose (Duvalay will make two-piece mattresses if you want). I'm glad I did, as it has solved the moving mattress problem. However it does make accessing the centre-hinged under-bed storage a bit more difficult, though that's not the end of the world.
I also bought two custom-made fitted sheets from Duvalay. They were £30 each, but fit fantastically compared to the previous method of tucking the loose bit under the cut-off.
At under €400 I'd say go for it!
