thanks cf, thats what i was hoping to hear. my wife and i love each other, but we love each other more in a king size bed. a queen is too cramped as one of us tosses and turns all night. i havent noticed it myself, so it must be her

If the king sized bed works out, how about some pics. I have thought about the same thing but was afraid the space at the door would be reduced to much to be practical.

the king size bed is just a winter time thought. when it warms up more than it is, i will take some measurements and see how much of a pita it is to get the queen size out and all the other needs to get the king size in. it doesnt seem (in my mind) to be to difficult of a project. we have a slide in the bedroom, and we already cant get in there unless the slide is moved out. the bed would just be going wider, not longer so i need to see that we actually do have the room before springing for a good, quality mattress.

will post pics if we decide to go that route.

Aren't RV mattresses (king and Queen) non standard size compaired to sticks and bricks?

The king in our 360 measurED 73" wide by 72" long.

We didn't like it the first and last night it was in the MH!
Nice for a few minutes but we just kept sinking in, by morning I thought I was in an old water bed, I'm not that big 5'10" 182.
Hated climbing out of it, but it always sprang back.
DW had to climb off the end because when the bed room doors are open she only had a few inches between the bed and sliding door.

We went to a local mattress manufacture and had a custom 72" queen built, mid range quality for $500.00.

Next on the todo list
Cut the plywood down to queen and build some end tables, we DIDN'T have any...
King in a 360 = good idea (for the sales dept.) but in real life it just didn't work out the way we thought it would .

We have 2 XL twins at home that = a king. We use dorm sheets with a king cover. They would be a lot easier to get in. Then you would only have to get the queen out.

thanks for the heads up on the twin bed idea. will be much easier to manuever and probably cheaper to boot. i am putting all my swear words in the bank for the day we decide to try this. cant be too prepared
