A slight diversion from the original question:
As a fellow Fiber Stream
owner, I have a fanatical
affinity for the brand, more so than most owners. Before last year's Oregon Gathering, another owner had replaced her recovered original cushions with a pair of custom twin mattress and was offering the cushions free to anyone who expressed interest. The foam and the upholstery was in perfect condition, it was just too soft.
If there were no takers she was going to just throw them away.
I had already witnessed one Fiber Stream
trailer be customized by the "first" used owner (a member here), only to have the "second" used owner (also a member) painstakingly
put everything that was removed back the way it was originally. It was a pre-1980 model, and the second used owner had a difficult challenge finding a replacement Duette Range/Heater for the one that had been scrapped, but was ultimately successful.
I thought that maybe I could store the unwanted cushions so they would be available to someone else, and accepted them at the Gathering. The only way to transport them from Oregon to Southern California was to temporarily double up on my existing cushions for the trip home... I had already replaced the foam in my cushions... and since we already keep the King Bed setup all the time it would be easy, or so I thought... too easy, I found out!
With our 4"
of firm regular foam in the original 1978 upholstery, topped with 4"
of soft regular foam in new upholstery, we discovered heaven on cloud
The "temporary" 8
inches of foam has become permanent
I. must. refrain. from. making. it. 12
