Question for classic 5th wheel owners

I understand there's carpet in the loft. What color? Or maybe it changed yearly? I'm visual, so is it a shade of blue, brown, gray.. or some other color?

THANKS!

The carpet is light brown .... but it's only around the sides of the bed. The silver bubble insulation is used under the mattress.

No just the new 5er. Although I did say on FiberglassRV if money was no option I'd track down the Geographic in France and buy it!

I'm just plotting and planning. I'm just surprised the entire loft isn't one piece of carpet over reflectix... if I read Barry's reply right.

Ours is light brown carpet - same color as on the steps - around the edges of the bed and plywood under the main part of the mattress....we put drymesh there. We don't have the extra insulation in ours. Our plan is to put reflectix under the mattress if we feel the need.

I looked up the Geographic --- sure looks French! Looks like a Citroen from that era.

The Geographic was made in Medford, Oregon in the early 1960s. I've seen it in person! Bardy brought to the Oregon Gathering about six years ago. Was sold on eBay for more than $120,000 and shipped to France. There were less than a dozen made. Total teak interior. So totally neato words can't express.

Sorry for getting off topic on my own thread!

Just so everyone knows... the ONLY loft I've seen without a mattress was a Bigfoot 5er. The entire loft area was carpeted... the couple was putting in two narrow twin beds (custom mattresses). I've never seen an Escape 5er without a mattress.

I'm still plotting and planning...

It isn't carpet over reflecix. Reflectix only under the mattress and carpet only around the edges.
