Mattress Protector To Keep Dirt Off The Bed
2016 Chevy Silverado
2016 Bigfoot 1500
We wanted to keep the cabover bed and mattress clean while accessing the storage bins. The idea of protecting the cleanliness of a mattress came to us after shopping at a bedding store. Most mattress retailers use a fabric cover over the foot portion to keep the mattress clean and sanitary.
After a year or so of trying to keep dirty shoes from soiling the foot of our camper bed, my wife constructed a simple protector using fabric which we lay over the mattress.
This allows us to access the hampers and closets while protecting the bedding from getting dirty. When it’s not in use, it folds up and stores out of the way.
It has worked out excellent! I no longer get reprimanded for getting my dirty shoes on the clean bedding.
It took me about three hours including fabric binding hours. It cost me $3.00. In my opinion, the skill level of this modification is easy.
