I live in Butte and restored my 65 globetrotter 2 years ago. I had a local business cut new foam, using the old foam as a template. Then she reupholstered them with chenile fabric and made new curtains too. They look great. I think she charged $1900.00. That included the front dinette and the side goucho.

Hi, I went through foamfactory.com. I bought large pieces and cut them with a large bread knife. Worked well for us.

We have a 1987 25 footer with rear twin beds. I bought a king sized 8" memory foam matteress from Walmart online. I removed the cover and used the board from under the bed as a templet then I used a very sharp knife to cut the foam to shape. We are having the lady that is recovering our couch make a new cover for the wen matteress.

For those people who have memory foam mattresses -- do you also have the "foundation" (I guess this would be like box springs)? I've checked out several websites, and they seem to mention mattresses then then "foundations" are extra.

Thanks.

Deb

No box spring needed. Just some type of platform to raise it to the desired level.

I bought 2 of those at Overstock for my 66, they are really comfortable. Borrowed the carving knife and it did the trick.

Hi Ben, We are redoing an 87 25' er with rear twin beds. I bought an 8" king memory foam matteress from Walmart. After letting it rise to normal thickness for a day, I took one of the platform boards from under the original mattress to use as a template. With a very sharp knife I cut the foam after taking the covers off. We are now having the lady how is recovering our couch make new covers for our two curved end matteresses cut from one. Also if you live near Norwalk Ohio, there is a store there where you can get upolstery @ $4 a yard. Mark

Hi Mark. Where in Norwalk is that fabric store? (We'd be coming North on SR 13.)

Thanks.

Foam Mattress

I happen to live 2 miles from the foam factory and stoped in there this morning. I want to get two twin mattress for my 66 Sovereign. I priced out one firm 4" mattress and they quoted me $111.50. I am not sure what shipping is though. The labor to upholster the mattress is $79.00 (with welting) and it would need 6 yards of fabric. Their standard microfiber is $12.99/yd but you can provide your own (find deals on Ebay). I looked into having the matress split, upholstered and then hinged but that would cost $195 in labor (ouch). They also have a standard cover for the mattress for $39. Just providing some info FYI. They were very nice and helpful, LOTS of foam there.

I bought two of these for our Tradewind. The bed platforms are loose to the cabinet so they slide into the aisle 1-2" to accomodate the mattress, it is a little wider than the foam but I just am not a fan of sleeping on foam.

I am a little worried about foam myself because I tried a memory foam mattress pad before and my back was not to happy about it. Are the Ikea mattresses comfortable? BTW the price I was quoted was different than the online price, not sure why.
