: ) They sure are fun! I took that on my iPad Air with an iOS app called "360" (info link). There is also a similar product called "Small Planet" for Android devices.

You can do all sorts of fun things!!

It looked like you climbed a tree really high and used a fisheye lens. Pano? How strange!

Too bad it now requires IOS 7, my 3GS only has 6.1

Exclamation

We posted a "Pondering Selling" thread... at this link in our "For Sale" section.

We luv our PL... but find ourselves venturing to far off road in our van conversion to enjoy the little gem parked down the mountain at a forestry or state park.

Top on the list of rigs is a 170" wheel base regular body 4x4 Sprinter we would have upfitted per our specs by the same folks that helped with our current AWD van conversion. It would be enough room for what we believe would suit our adventures and all in one rig rather than spread out between two.

Time will tell.

Exclamation drum roll....

I am happy to report that Parkliner #35 has found a new home.

I will not state the forum member's name, but rather defer to them to do so if they choose to at some point.

We are very excited that PL 35 is going to a couple that is sooo enthusiastic about owning this little gem.

Thank you to all who communicated their interest and shared their egg-dreams with us over the past couple years we've had her.

Happy Trails,
Thom & Cari

Lightbulb

Cari & I spent an afternoon completing a project inside PL35... Since we have never used it in bed mode we only put the memory foam on the seat cushions. Well it made sense that we do all the remaining cushions before the new owners arrived as i'm thinking they will be using it in rear-bed + side dinette mode.



As an FYI, for those who have wondered how you could transform your sitting experience from stock-blah to WOWZER in comfort level...

We were reminded of just how comfortable these memory-foam-tweaked seats were by nearly every visitor in the rig this past egg-fest. So here is how we did it:

1) Purchase an appropriately sized gel/memory mattress topper.

2) Open up your stock cushions and remove the (most likely this is a typical cushion build thing) thinsulate/similar batting from foam cushion.

3) Cut a piece of memory foam to match cushion.

4) Put original cushion back in cover.

5) Roll / or wrangle the memory foam into cover on top of foam.

6) Sit or lay down and be amazed.

: ) Thom
