Used camper people step inside please

Ok, I've been reading how folks like sleeping in their own bed at night, crapping on their own throne etc. My question is, what did you do to that used mattress/sofa bed to get it up to your clean standards? Lots of talk about hotel rooms being bad but how do you know the "history" of the mattress in your camper? Maybe some kid peed on it every night. Or some crazy couple....well you know.

Put a foam topper pad on it and will replace it with a new mattress before we full time in 18 months.

Replaced the toilet in our first moho.

Guess we were lucky,, no stains on either,, just a good thorough vacuming, (sp?) and clean sheets... Home away from home,,, and DW is a Clean Freak !!! We both have bad backs, the bed mattress in the coach is as good or better than at home. I might add the bed mattress is Not the original 1995... Seems fairly new. We bought from the second owner, who luckily only owned it a year.... The original owner took very good care of everything. Stains,,, and either would have been replaced !

One of the first things we did was toss the old stock mattress out the door. We went to the retailer who sold us our last bed at home a couple years ago. He ordered the mattress we wanted and saved us quite a bit over those we researched from RV sources. A couple days later his son delivered and installed our new "cloud 9". We had an easier time of cleaning and loading while the mattress was out. We also did a little remodeling back there while we were at it.

This is exactly why I don't like motels. If I had bought a used one I would have bought a new mattress and bleached the throne till it turned white.

After all the diapers I've dealt with and will be dealing with, no crap scares me anymore.
And if anyone made a habit of wetting your RV bed, you wouldn't have to see it to know it's there....

Fortunately the mattresses weren't smelly or stained in our used RVs of the past. The Class-C came with a mattress that looks new and is comfortable. Like everyone else I use a mattress pad etc. Had they had stains or odors we would have replaced them.

These are some of the reasons we bought new. Had we purchased a used one, we would have replaced the mattress the toilet and bleached the refrigerator, sinks and fresh water system multiple times. Any furniture that wasn't leather would have been a used deal breaker for me and we would very likely have replaced the carpet. I'm just really hinky about dirt and germs that aren't my own. (we buy new houses, too. At least we're consistent)
