I had the Euro Box Spring Slats under my bed, when going from a King to a Queen, I ditched the Euro Box Slats and put plywood, that gave me another inch of so of height.

We have to pull back our comforter when hitting the road. Just that little bit of fluff is enough to bugger up the works.

Yep, I have to pull my comforter back too, the sheets just slide under the edge when closing the bedroom slides.

Yup... I'm here and we did the same thing. Char found a super deal at a Sears store that was closing and she likes the high mattresses so we bought it on site. Well, got home and same problem you are having so I cut my bed base down. We did have to give up the storage but now we can even leave all the bedding on and it goes under the closet.

36fl

Thanks for the pics Steve this will probably be the route to take, It's hard to give up any storage as the 36fl has very limited storage when comparing it to our last unit a 3465 montana but we are starting to learn after 10 years fultiming you only keep what you need. thankyou

We put a mattress topper on and found that it bound the works, so I cut 5 inches off the foot of the topper and every thing works great, still have to fold the comforter up.

36fl slide

Thanks Camper will have to remember that, I think I will be going with Steve's approach and lower the base by what is required and then a bit more as I will lose that storage anyway . Sure wish I had your workshop to work in Steve instead of a picnic table on site 674.

We never did find much use for those 2 draws so that is why we just did away with them and now both high mattress and bedding is never a question when getting ready to hit the road again.
Not a hard project even on picnic table. Most work is getting it out the door. You will need a few pieces of better lumber to put it back together.
ALSO... when under the bed, check the 120 volt connectors as they always seem to be loose or look like a pretzel.

question for Steve

Hi Steve was wondering how big a job is it to get it out the door, I imagine it would be the kitchen door and did you replace the cross piece and dividers behind where the drawers were. Was there enough height left to replace electrical sockets or did you have to put them sideways. Hoping to get at it soon if the rain ever stops. Thankyou

Two people can walk it right out the front door. I left the box spring thing or whatever you call that inside. Once that is off take the top pieces off and you can get to everything you need to.I can't remember everything I replaced but if memory is correct I added a lot more cross pieces for better support as it is pretty flimsy as you will see. I did turn my plugs sideways but after doing so I added one to each side table so I really didn't need them since not the easiest to get to. Just remember to check those 110 RV plugs under the bed as they always loosen up over time. I had one that was not even clipped in.

Get your height measurement you need BEFORE you take it out!!!
