Beautiful work!

So you are almost to the ready to use point? It looks like you are coming down the home stretch!

Hi All:

Here are some pictures on the window treatment. All I need to finish off the bedroom is a foam mattress. Any ideas on where to purchase one for a decent price? Will be moving into the bathroom which will be the last major hurdle...and a camping we will go......

Look at walmart.com they have various thickness and are fairly reasonable.

This whole project is just unreal. I bet your wife is scared of what you are going to try when you are retired and have too much time on your hands!!!
Great work, can't wait to see more.

I've been enjoying this thread! Great job.

Overstock.com has foam mattresses and they deliver to your door for only $2.95!

There is foam and there is FOAM. You should probably go to a web site like http://www.foamorder.com/foam_mattress.htmlor some others.
to get an idea of what is out there. We did this many years ago when looking at choices for our trailer and it paid off. I usually tend to buy cheap, but did't with the foam in our trailer.

Cheers John

I have been retreading this whole thread. Your work is fantastic and an inspiration to all. Perhaps you can post before and after pictures?

The suggestions on the foam mattress were great and we checked them out. We have been shopping around and were tempted to purchase one at IKEA but after Shelley mentioned Walmart it turned out to be half the price for an 8" queen size mattress with memory foam - awesome. Thanks for that.

Working on the bathroom this week so progress photos to come shortly. That was a good idea to post before and after pictures. I will work on that.

Thanks for continuing to follow the thread and appreciate the commentary that keeps me going.

Ken

Hey Glen, We had a ventura trailer a few years back - lots of good memories when I think of that trailer. We fondly referred to it as the sugar cube. Thanks for commenting on the trailer, it has it's pros and cons but it will work just fine for us. I hope

Have officially booked the last week in May off and going States side. It will be a good test run. Will probably come back with a list of things to amend and finish.


Take care,
Ken

Not quite done yet, but the push is on to finish for the road trip.
All l.p. lines are in as well as the gate valves for the plumbing. All wired in to the monitor

Just a few pictures of the kitchen backsplash and the bathroom which was the last major project before the maiden voyage. All plumbing and L.P. finished so we had heat and running water, at least for a little bit. I only put enough water in to test for leaks, etc. and unfortunately we ran out on the second day. With assistance from our helpful neighbours in the next campsite, things were quickly resolved. As it turns out they are also members of Fiberglass R.V. with a beautiful Escape trailer. Thanks again Mike and Maureen.

I have come home with a new list of things to do, but at least now we can use the trailer while I finish off the odds and ends.

Take care, Ken
