Boler mattress and dinette in Winnipeg

Hi - our reno project on our Boler is progressing. Now it is time to find someone to make us a mattress (one piece; 46 x 77 with two rounded corners). Also looking for anyone in Winnipeg who has done a front dinette; or anyone anywhere who has done a front dinette and can send us dimensions and/or photo. Thanks Boler crew!

Tom and Kelly

Hi T&K, if you want to make one yourself...
You can make a pattern with a roll paper laid down on the area. Then buy a piece of foam suggest 4 inches thick, cut it with an electric Turkey knife. That's how I did mine. There are lots of threads on this site that show front dinette conversions. Good luck.

I bought a memory foam house-bed type mattress made of 8 inches thick foam from my local Jysk store and cut it to fit using an electric carving knife. Works great, wonderful mattress.

Thanks to the two of you. Question: what material did you use to cover the mattress with? Is the memory foam too warm?

I made a removable custom mattress topper of 2" memory foam covered with cotton knit. We find it to be amazingly comfortable. I made two long cushions, as opposed to one large, so they can fit rolled up into the dinette seat cubby. See photo.

My mattress, which was a normal home mattress, came with two thin cover layers on it, one of which was zippered for easy removal for cleaning. Before that, when we had a plain 4 inch foam mattress, we used a quilted mattress cover from Walmart to put a layer between the foam and the sheets, which also worked well. As for warmth, it was not at all too warm. I like to be warm when I sleep but have a somewhat cooler room, so this was great. We use flannel sheets on all our beds, even at home, all year round, which we like because they are soft and never get "clammy" in humid environments, besides being warm.

I used a dble bed deep pocket mattress cover to cover the foam, the deep pocket fitted jersey dble bed size sheet to cover. Have tried the memory foam and the egg crate foam did not like either one of those. But to each his own, find what feels good to you.
