swap mattress

We have a king size mattress in our 5th wheel. I would like to go down to a queen to give us more room. How do you get a king size mattress out of a Eagle HT?

They can be folded enough to go thru the doors at an angle. Did it on our eagle

Our disposal company charges $100 for mattress and again for box springs. So I cut mine first with a zip knife to get rid of the cover the cut up the springs with bolt cutter. A bit of work but I am retired and this saved some money.

Thank you. What type of mattress did you replace it with, and are you happy with it?

Thank you for the tip. I am not retired, but I like to save money too.

We put a foam mattress that shops to your home in a box wrapped in saran wrap.
We like it

I purchased a Zinus 10 inch thick short queen for my 195RB. Exact fit and so great to sleep on that I bought a king 12 for the house and a twin 8 inch for one of my grandsons from Zinus.

RogerR, I like your style! I'm retired too and it's good to know I'm not the only guy trying to save money.
