The cutting of a mattress

 In our moving from 2 condos to one house we ended up with an extra mattress so we thought we would swap out the mattresses in the MotorHome.
Which we did some time ago, though the new mattress was just sitting in there.
So the other day we went by the motorhome to set the mattress in place...
guess what.... it was too long!
Good thing Jim and I are short... get the clippers out!

Daffy on the big dash...

She seems pretty comfortable here..

'are we gonna go?'

Said mattress..

How much the mattress hangs over.
The issue is the 'bedroom' is in a slide, so there is no problem when the slide is out. But when the slide is in the new mattress was too long.
Tool of choice for foam mattress cutting

Tools of the trade

Draw a line where you want to cut and hope for the best


Cuts like buttah!

Not the tidiest job but it worked!

Has the Daffy seal of approval

Bed made and slide in, another successful DIY project. Now Daffy says 'let's go somewhere'!
We also replaced the battery and will have the motorhome de-winterized, get some air in the tires and head somewhere with the furfamily. After living in the motorhome for 3 months (aug-nov 2012) before we were able to move into this house we weren't in any hurry to get back in it. But now thinking it might be fun to take a trip or two. There is so much of our new state we haven't seen.


  1. HopE you have lots of fun and big adventures in you motor home Daffy

  2. Can't wait to read about the road trips ahead! So very glad that Daffy is fitting right in!

  3. Daffy is so cute - she seems very happy with you. She looks like she is just waiting to see what the next adventure will be.

    She is a very lucky girl to have been taken in by you:-)

  5. Wow! That’s some great mattress cutting despite it being a DIY feat. Good thing you were able to replace the mattress. They do need to be replaced every few years to ensure that our backs won’t suffer when we sleep on them. Anyway, if ever you would like to buy a new mattress, you can check out Mattress Magic. They have some pretty good choices there. :D

  6. That is a really great idea. It's perfectly cool that you don't have less, but more in terms of those kinds of creature comforts. Those are one of the best things that you should always have a spare. Rest after all, is always a great bit of help in anything. Thanks for sharing that! All the best!
