Default Queen Size Mattress

Will I be able to maneuver a queen size mattress in to my mid-entry, FC, side bath 35' "Kootenay Belle" The local furniture store has them on sale but I would hate to buy one only to discover it wouldn't fit. Thanks.

You might want to check the measurements on that size. I thought the standard size bed was a double, not a queen. Yours might just be a queen though. In any case, I'd think if it wasn't a huge pillow top or one of the super stiff models, it would probably fit with a bunch of pushing, twisting, and making sure it didn't snag on something or catch some grease or something. hth

If a queen fits get one of the Sleep Number Beds. They come in two sections and getting into the coach is no problem. Carry it in in the box, unpack it, put it together and air it up. You will need a place to put the compressor but it isn't huge.

I had no problem getting a queen size memory foam mattress into my FC. I ran it up front first, then into the bedroom. It had to bend a little getting onto the bed, but it went quickly. My wife and I did it twice. It also went into the SP.
