I cut my board and swithched to a home size queen mattress also. Most people here don't like the mattress that comes with the trailer. Buy whatever home style queen mattress you like. IMHO

Like others, cut the bed board down and purchased a Stearns & Foster Queen mattress. We also have two of these in our house.

Since you ordered yours that way was there nay difference in the space on the sides in the slide out from what a King had, filler, cabnet?

Yes, the king would have completely filled the width of the slide out. We have small shelves on either side about 10" above the platform height and a small bit of usable space under the shelves (big enough for a cat). I don't recall if the king has the shelves.

Ours came with king and had those useless shelves
( put your glasses on them & hope for the best )
Shelves came off !
We then added 3” memory foam topper, now it’s the best bed ever!
Making the bed has not been an issue.

Ours came with a king but it was a really thin mattress and, because of the shelves on either side, you couldn't put a thicker mattress in the space. The mattress went under the shelves. We didn't want to give up those bedside shelves. Anyhow, as others did, we cut down the frame and put in a queen. It is soooooo much easier to make the bed and to move around it.

We had a king, special ordered an extremely nice queen from a local mattress store in Grand Rapids MI that made to order. The extra room on the sides in nice for making the bed, getting in and out of the closest and also gave me a bit more storage along side the sides at the head of the bed for things like laptop computer back pack, fans, the vac attachments, knitting/sewing kit. Also, didnít have to worry about buying king bedding. Already had extras at home. Get a good mattress, you canít go wrong.

We have a king and wish we would have gone with a queen. Extra space around bed would be most welcome.

We actually changed from the king to a queen for the extra room and like it much better.

I have a new 2019 3731 with a king mattress ($300 extra). Please beware that at least on mine, the supporting piece of plywood is for a queen mattress, such that the edges of the king mattress have no support. I wanted the dealer (Crestview RV in Selma TX) to change out the support but according to them and Keystone, that is the normal king size setup. As long as the mattress is not a short queen, I'd get a queen size for the extra room and to avoid having no support on the edges of your king mattress. There is no place to sit in the bedroom so you have to sit on the edge of bed, which has no support.

Ours came with a king and we ordered a queen memory foam mattress from Amazon. We didn't have to cut the platform. We like the extra room around the bed with the queen.

We have a 305RL that came with a King. Had the dealer move our queen mattress into the unit and I cut down the bed frame wo fit the queen mattress. Our concern was the same as your's, we wanted the extra space to make it easier to move around the bed and have space for things like a CPAP and SoClean.

We have replaced the king with a queen twice. For us it is the only way to go. Easier to move, easier to make the bed. Just works much better for us.

Our Montana purchased one month ago came with the king. We asked the salesman to swap it for the queen and he made it happen!

buy the king. junk the factory mattress. install a top of the ( best for you) queen.

for me ( no wife) thinking a single. saves on weight. and gives lots more floor space.

Had shelves in our unit also.........when we got a king...I took the shelves off.......swapped from side to and then mounted them upside over the windows.........which made a handy shelf with an edge all the way around to put stuff on that would not fall off.

Queen

We replaced our Monty bed with a queen bed from Costco. We liked it so much we bought the same new for home. Iím 6í 3Ē and my wife is 5í 10Ē and the queen is perfect. Allows plenty of room on the sides for making the darn thing daily.
