I know that my friends bought a Montana 5th shell with a King Size Zbed and converted it to a Queen Size. He also cut the plywood down to match and loves it. I assume it will determine which floor plan that you have on How EZ it will be to get the KS Mattress out?

The cheap stock kingsized mattress in most RVs should be no problem to get out. You can bend them almost double if needed. The problem might be to get a quality queensized mattress back in. In our 5er, we replaced the stock queensized mattress with a queensized 13" deep Serta EuroTop. The stock mattress just popped right out, but the new mattress resulted in a few choice words before I was able to scrunch it down enough to get it into the bedroor (up stairs in a mid-profile 5er).

But it was well worth the effort. We slept on that mattress several weeks per year for several years before we sold the 5er last year.

We changed the horrible "Cloud Ten" king mattress in our Pinnacle for a 18 inch queen size Simmonds EuroTop, the day after we took delivery of the unit. Our Pinnacle was a factory order, but Jayco wouldn't leave out the mattress, or change it for a queen. There is much more room in the bedroom to move around than with the king. The "Cloud ten" was donated to a charity...it was never slept on.

The old one came out, and the new one went in, quite easily.
We are full timers, and it was worth every dollar for a good mattress. DW was a little skeptical when I took a Skilsaw to the bed platform in a one day old unit, but it was a simple modification.

Funny, we sold our 2009 Jayco 31BHDS this summer and purchased a 2011 Pinnacle 36REQS and found the Cloud 10 king size mattress awesome. Only thing is that we added a king size memory foam to it and never actually slept on just the mattress.

On another note, I had a squirrel (I think it was!) in the basement last month. It looks like he got in through the front jacks. I stuffed steel wool in there and it looks like he is gone. At first I thought it was a mouse but 3 mouse traps were tripped without catching anything and 2 poison blue blocks went missing. I don't think a mouse would be that lucky and the blocks must have been carried off. No mouse poop anywhere and nothing got in the living area of the 5th wheel.
