Mattress Day!

Yesterday was a productive day.  I got the painting done at the house and almost decided to stay for a few days and paint all the trim and eaves but that can wait.  Too much fun to be had this trip.  My friend and neighbor across the street is a carpenter and he helped me finish hanging the infamous cabinet door.  Done.  Today Jimmy is making a support for the back of the cabinet for the flat screen mount. 

Still needs two more coats of paint but it will do the job!

Today we are off to a place called Billie Bob's Mattress Warehouse.  We have been wanting to replace the mattress since we bought this travel trailer.   The rv mattress is flimsy and not like the mattress at home.   I have researched this to death including the new memory foam.   Walmart has a memory foam that you can order on line and have it delivered to the store nearest you.   The problem is, it takes up to three days to come to life.   I want to be able to try it out before we buy one so we will see what Billie Bob has to offer.

I have read tons of reviews about Billie Bob and many of them are terrible.  So why am I interested in seeing Billie Bob you might be wondering?   The reviews are all pretty much the same.  The service stinks and the employees are rude and uncaring.   However, in all the reviews they say they have the best mattress at the best price and would buy there again.  Funny, isn't it?  


  1. We had a thick foam mattress cut to size for the old motorhome and it was great! I made it a little longer than normal so my feet didn't hang over the end. I miss my mattress!

  2. Memory foam topper on the original now 18 year old motorhome mattress for us. Love it.

  3. I bought the least expensive foam mattress at Ikea about 10 years ago and love it. No sagging, bulging, just flat and firm.

  4. I thought memory foam is not good for RV's if you go to cold places, it stays very cold for a long time/ Not true? love Claudia

  6. This was a very productive day for you! Thanks to your neighbor and friend, the job was finished quickly. At least you can concentrate on looking for your new mattress. And speaking of which, how is it? I hope you already find the one you need. But if you’re looking for more choices or reference, you can always visit Mattress Magic .
