Roll it up and tie it using adjustable tie downs so you can tighten it. Should be able to muscle it out then. Could take off the door stop to get the entrance door to open further. If that won't work maybe take it out through the emergency exit window?

I have used a utility knife to cut the fabric and bolt cutters to cut the springs so I could remove half at a time. Then we put a dial a number air bed in [ comes in a small package] and it is the best mattress we have slept on. Also camping world will remove the old one and install a new mattress. Hope this helps.

13 minutes since posting and three replies! Is that a record?

And I have some ideas.

I slid mine on its side and bent it around the passenger chair and out the door. A bit heavy but no problem other than that.

I did the same as RUFINIT but make sure someone watches the door clearance from inside. I broke the map light above the co-pilot chair and door. I had to order 2 replacements because I couldn't find and exact replacement for the old one.

I let the NEW mattress delivery guys do it

When we bought our new memory foam mattress like the one at home,
I just had the rv out front @ home when they delivered and
had them stand it on the side to pull the old one into the living area,
pull the new one into the front bedroom,
use the plastic off the new mattress to wrap up the one month old 'old' mattress,
and put it in the garage !

Tipped them some cash and it's all good !

leave the wrapping on as it WILL get dirty dragging it around

Same method here! Go with the sleep number from CW. Comes in a box, simple to put together, great nights sleep. Even purchased one for home. CW had the best prices you can catch them on sale regularly and if a GS member free shipping
