King mattress problem

Since we are sitting still and have the ability to lay our mattress out in the sun, I thought it would be a great idea to do so. We stripped it down, wrangled it the the front of the coach only to find it doesn't fit through the entrance door. How in the world did it get in the coach? Please don't say through the front window. They are replaced once in a while aren't they?
Surely you don't have to pop out the window to change the mattress?

Some mattresses are compressed and sealed in plastic, greatly reducing the size. Of course, it expands when you open it, on top of the bed. And some can be folded.

And then then there are twins, put together.

Well this one is not made up of twins. I think it is a king coil. Do they fold?

My wife was just thinking about this last night telling me that she does not think a king size will get through the door and I said sure it will. Let us know what you end up doing to get this thing out and back in.

We have a gasser with the mid-ship door and we have swapped our OE king size mattress for a new foam model. It was quite a job getting the old one out as it was a coil mattress. Since it was a dud, we pushed and shoved without caring whether it was damaged because it was on its way to the dump.

The new mattress was compressed and went in easily, expanding after it was installed on the bed.

Take a ratchet strap, fold the mattress in half and use the ratchet strap to hold it together and move it outside

We changed our original king Denver mattress for a memory foam. The king made it out the front door with some pushing by me and some pulling by my brother in law. We didn't care if we damaged the mattress but it made it out in good condition.

We decided to leave it be for the team being. But the ratchet strap suggestion sounds like it would work. May give it a try before we leave. Thanks all for the great suggestions.
