The bed, however, will need some work. It is cozy and comfortable for a couple nites, but it is a bit hard on my old bones for long periods of time. I sleep on an air mattress at home, I am wondering if I could find a place that will custom shape one for the trailer?
It didn't take much longer than one night for me to want a softer mattress. Funny how those dinette cushions can be so thick, but so uncomfortable. Now I pile it on like the princess, until I can no longer feel the pea. My old one- and two-inch Thermarest mattresses didn't feel soft enough, either, but on top of the cushions, they're just about perfect. My wife added a cheap egg-crate foam layer. It's comfy, but bulky and dirt-catching. Air mattresses are more compact and conformable, if more trouble to inflate. I use a 3/4 length Big Agnes Air Core pad fit into the back of the bed with the corners tucked up, and a full-length Thermarest for the longer halfof the bed completes the ensemble du boudoir. I can't wait to try my new down-filled air mattress, though. Guess I'm kind of an ulptralight bed connessieur.. oh well, for other guys it's fly rods or bowling balls.

Hi everyone! If you had your remodel to do over again or you could add one more thing to your little fiberglass RV, what would it be? (besides a bathroom) I'm talking about a 13 foot trailer. As we are remodeling, we would like to do any additions or modifications NOW instead of wishing we had done them while things were in pieces. Thanks, Roger and Bonnie
Hello Roger,

We have added a water heater and radiant heating to our 13' Boler and cant wait for a cold day to try it out. Also a very good veriable speed fan with thermostat has been installed to keep the trailer cool in the summer. We will in future be adding more insulation to the walls and having an auto upolstery company putting in a fabric like surface like in the newer fiberglass trailers.

Go to www.photoshow.net/libbycal under renovation to see the radiant heating my husband designed.
