Well Tom, I plan to be there as well, so I'll make sure to look you up.

I too will be spending quite a bit of time in FL. this winter. Have reservations at Lake Louise State Park the week before Scamp Camp - was highly recommended by a Floridian who was camped next to me last year at Highland Hammock. After Scamp Camp, plan to head down to the Everglades for a week or two, have reservations at Big Cyprus Reserve for one of the weeks. After that will be traveling around, visiting various friends and family in Florida until the rally at Silver Springs in March, have reservations for that as well. Then it will be slowly making my way back north with a couple of stops in Alabama and Georgia, making it back to Michigan sometime in early April, in time to get the garden ready.

Man, I sure do hate retirement!!!

Tom, if you are going to leave the bed made up, how about getting a custom mattress. We bought a Southern Mattress for our Casita and love it. I think they make one for Scamps also.

Lyle, looking forward to meeting you in Sebring. We can tell snow blowing stories around the campfire. I know what you mean about retirement. when Joanne and I head down there in the winter, we have a game we always play. First one to spot a palm tree wins.

Mary and Bob, We ordered a 2" memory foam mattress, and will wait to see how that works out. If it doesn't, a Southern Mattress might be the way to go. They're not cheap, but if we added up all the money we spent on mattress toppers and pads; we could have paid for one of them.

Since you are going to leave the bed down permanently, I recommend that you remove the table hardware from under the bed. This gives room for stoŕage containers. We purchased two long shallow bins on rollers from Walmart that nicely stack. They have lids that flip up from the center so you only have to pull them out halfway to access their contents. Those are our his and hers 'dresser drawers.

Thanks guys and gals for all the words of encouragement. Can't wait to get on the road again.

Bat Dude, we haven't been to Petoskey S.P. yet, but two of my Brothers have. It's on the list.

Jim, we did something similar with our clothes in the 13, but that hardware hanging below the table limited us to smaller shorter boxes. I didn't remove the table leg thinking we may someday use it as a dinette. Three years went by, and we never did. Now we have a dedicated dinette, so it's time to lose that leg. I like the way you think! Thanks!

Tom

Tom, if you (or anyone else here) decide to go with Southern Mattress, we're only a few miles from them and will gladly offer a place to overnight. Plenty of room in the back yard if you want water and electric or a couple of hundred acres of farmland for more privacy.

No connection to SM other than as a customer for both our 16' and 19'. Well satisfied with both products.
