RE: Replacing Mattress with Foam ?

I thought about a topper but I would still have the lousy soft mattress as the foundation and it would raise the bed height too much for the DW to get into. I appreciate the feedback and will look into the Sealy and Verlo.

Replacing Mattress with Foam ?

I am considering replacing the cheap queen mattress with 4" or 5" thick foam. Has anyone done this? I sleep in the overhead buck and sleep great whereas my wife sleeps in the corner bed and says the mattress is too soft and she's right, no support. Where would be the best place to buy and what density if foam is preferred plus foam is cheaper than some mattresses. Thanks!

RE: Two adults comfortable in the over cab bed?

Check out the Nexus Phantom 25' C, it has a walk around queen bed. like many have said, it is tough having two full grown adults sleep in the overcab bed. Imagine having to go in the middle of the night and you have to climb over the person and get into position to climb down the ladder, could be disastrous or it gets old real quick.

RE: Need to buy a NEW entry level RV - Any suggestions ?

Another brand to consider is the Nexus Phantom 24P & 25P. The 25P has a walk around queen bed. Stronger construction than aluminum, azdel and crowned fiberglass roof, front cap which reduces the venerable leak area, larger overcab area and will build it the way you want. Check out their website.

RE: Cooler for Motorhome

I have 2 coleman xtreme coolers and they work great, definitely worth it for me.

RE: What did you do to your Class C MH today???

Replaced all the rusting holding tank valve bolts and nuts with stainless steel ones. Figured it was a lot easier to replace them now while they still came apart instead of fighting with a saw in the middle of a trip.

RE: Michelin Tire Recall - How Long To Get Replacement Tires?

Called the tire store last Tuesday and had all 7 replaced Friday as they had the tires in stock. At least I got 2 years of out those.

RE: Class C suggestions

If you are still looking by the time September rolls around, you definitely have to check out the Hershey show. Being you live in New Jersey as I do, it was the best possible way to check out all the different sizes and styles of rigs. I have been to both jersey shows and they are VERY limited. The Hershey show is the toys-r-us for motorhome variety and selection. Good Luck!

RE: Sitting @ Dinette w/slide in when stopped?

The dinette has seat belts so that tells me its ok to use in transit, I also use a 1x2 that I shaved down and slide it under the lip of the slide when its retracted and we want to use it, never had a problem.

RE: Michelin Tire Recall - How Long To Get Replacement Tires?

My front tires and the spare have the date code of 2511 but the rears only have a sequence code of B3JH AKEX. Are these also on the recall list? Thanks, Dave

RE: Water in 2014 cabover

As RedRollingRoadBlock has said document everything and consider contacting a lemon law attorney. Just don't wait to long.

RE: Front Seat That Swivels Upgrade W/Pic

Look at my post at the top of this page,(second one down) I checked into this on the Forest River Forum and had a Rep tell me this would only fit on a Ford Chassis that was built after Feb.2013. Mine was built in 2011. Unless they came out with one that fits the earlier chassis. But thanks for the info!

RE: Front Seat That Swivels Upgrade W/Pic

I checked out Discount Van & Truck and for a swivel base it says "approved for seats without airbags" I guess for liability reasons so that excludes my 2011 E450. Wish I had the roomier Chevy!

RE: Thor Axis drivability

I believe they chose the E350 instead of the E450 is because the E450 chassis is 4.5" wider and The Axis is only 96" wide at the back. I checked one out at a show and did not like the flimsy bathroom double door and large windshield. I had an A and that would let in a lot of sun and more area to get stoned. After switching to a C I like the fact that I have a nice sun visor (overhang) easy windshield to replace, airbags and our own doors. I didn't like the fact the front dash was so far extended and hard to judge and see compared to the C. I did like the twin rear beds and couch though.

RE: Help...Privacy Curtains

I would think a 3010 class C would be light years ahead of a 2010 and have that problem resolved.

RE: Transmission clunk

RE: Non wide-body "C"s?

The OP is asking about C's and not B's where you lose the overhead bunk. Before I bought my C, I went to the Hershey Show and mentioned to several manufacturers why don't they take the narrow C like what is on the sprinter chassis such as the Forest River Solera or Coachmen Prism and place it on a Chevy or Ford chassis which would be a lot cheaper than the Sprinter chassis and having a gas generator instead of LP. They had no answer, I would have liked to buy a unit like that because the Tiger and Bornfree are so much more, not everyone can afford the fiberglass shell. It sure would have been nice to drive and park a narrower unit without breaking the bank. Unfortunately Corporate only see's profit where we see usability for our life style.

RE: Replace Oven with burner only?

We also use our oven to store the larger pots and pans and it is nice to have the option to use it when the microwave won't cut it.
