Brian, I never thought of opening the wardrobe door. I'll probably forget next time I look in there.

I didn't put a knob on it because I was afraid of hitting my ankle on it. That would wake up half a campground.

I stuffed it up under the sink and it really resolved the stress from the noise since the pump ran so infrequently. Never at night but occasionally during the day. 1 gallon is a fair bit of water in an Airstream. I suppose it ran when I was in the shower but with all the banging around I couldn't hear it. By the way, I just went through your neck of the woods but stayed at the Walmart in North Battleford which was a days drive for me from Winnipeg. Jim

Thanks for this Jim - I will check my local Walmart and see if they have such an animal.
Are you located in Winnipeg? i'm actually in Yorkton. So if you were in N. Battleford, you would have went right by us. Next time stop in we always have lots of room for company

Cheers
Doug

Hi Doug,
Although I now live and work in Burlington, I was born and raised in Winnipeg and still keep the family residence there so visit at every opportunity. You will understand that is most desirable to not shake off the prairie dust. I will stop by in the future since wondering around the west is a joie de vivre for my wife and I. On a selfish note, I could certainly benefit from a little camera instruction. Jim

As I mentioned Jim - your more than welcome anytime. We have lots of room for parking (10-ac yard) and even might have the ability to rustle up a few services for you to plug into.

On the camera front, i'm always willing to help out if I can

Cheers
Doug

12 days till our build date for our FC25 FB Twins!

Would someone please give me a measurement on a twin mattress? Length, width and thickness? I understand they are longer than a standard twin? Twin XL seems hard to find in the Vancouver area. I'm wondering whether standard twin sheets will do which they might if the mattress is not too thick? Anyone have a reasonably priced online source?

Thanks all.

The mattresses are X long, and you will need to order accordingly. The Airstream Store (in their bedding area), has PDF's which spell out the dimensions.

Here is another source:

Good luck!

If you plan on using a foam topper on your mattress, make sure to tell AB Lifestyles how thick it is. Then for $10 extra they'll make a set fit with the topper.

New Lucy's twin beds are long but a bit narrower than a standard twin. They measure 78" by 34". Lucy has 2" memory foam toppers on her mattresses. We use standard twin fitted sheets, and they work fine. SuEllyn uses a queen flat sheet and I use a twin. She likes more coverage.

I just looked on line and found that a standard twin mattress is 75" by 39". A twin XL mattress is 80" by 39".

This puts the Airstream twin kind of in the middle. Lengthwise, it's right in the middle. Widthwise, it is 5" narrower.

In our Classic, the two twin mattress were purchased from Rocky Mountain Mattress. After seeing how these fit, we could easily have had them five inches longer to fill the curve at the back and goto the bottom of the support board at the foot. There would still be about 10" to the wall. Width is constrained by the night center cabinet/drawer. The mattress we ordered was 8" thick which the Airstream 600 thread custom sheets fit perfectly.

If the memory foam is just foam without a cloth cover, then you can cut the foam to any length you want so long as it is shorter. That way you don't have to special order something from an RV store. To make it longer, put in bathtub with enough water to partially cover it and make sure it gets some sun 12 hours per day; in a few weeks it should begin growing (whether it grows foam or something else, I don't know). An electric knife cuts foam easily I am told, but I just use a sharp knife long enough to cut all the way through.

Exactly what I was looking for Brian. Thanks again.
