Anybody ever haul a fullsize bed in a CC short-bed?
I measured it and it should fit between the bed sides, I figure I will drop the bed extender and have the back end of the mattress and box spring up on top of the bed extender. Strapped down tight I think it'll be ok, but has anyone done this and is it too unwieldy?
i put a queen sized mattress and box spring in my cc short bed. i did not use the bed extender put them in there and strapped them down. i didn't have far to go so it was not a big deal.

When I did it I was moving other stuff as well, so I think the mattress and box spring was standing up long ways in the middle sandwiched between other stuff.
I think that the mattress should fit inside the bed extender and doesn't have to lay on top of the bed extender. And actually thinking about it I think there was another time I moved a full size mattress and was able to lay it flat down in the bed with the bed extender.
This was a while back though and my memory is kind of fuzzy.
Either way, you should be good as long as you strap it down.
