Mary, I just wanted to say "THANK YOU" for posting the link to the Foam Factory. Susan and I have been trying to decide what to do about our mattresses for about a week now. I called the Foam Factory folks at lunch today and a very nice lady stepped me thru the product line and helped me decide what we needed. Seems like maybe a small business/family business. The kind of place where you get great service!

The best part? Total delivered price was only $156. Amazing.

Jim

Great! Glad you found what you needed. That's one less thing that you can check off your to-do list . Just 999 more to go?

Jeez, it's almost like yer a mind reader. Yep, there are UPS and Fedex planes orbiting all over North America right now waiting to deliver all the "stuff" I've ordered in the last couple of weeks. We're on a tight timeline to make the Fall Rally in the N. Georgia mountains in a couple of weeks. Finding your post in this thread was a Godsend! Thanks again, Karma coming at cha.

You are too kind . Looking forward to seeing all your results/updates. How's that sticky paint issue doing? Holding up with your fix?

So far so good. The bedroom has been good since I topcoated with the polycrylic (about 2 months now). I'm at the point where I think the Sherwin Williams guys provided the right fix. I've got so many other things going on right now with the refurb I haven't gotten back to that issue. We actually have plans to go camping this month and next month--for an entire week! So I'm trying to take care of the more immediate issues. Watch the Full Monte thread for more stuff in the coming days. After 5 years of working on this thing, we finally have a real, no kiddin', AIRSTREAM!, instead of a hanger queen.
