We leave a week from today to pick up "The Lark". In the meantime we have been buying towels, dishes, cookware etc. to outfit the trailer. I told Lindy that it is just like "playing house", or perhaps like when we were young and living in a studio apartment with a murphy bed. But now we have "Murphy-The-Dog".
We think we want to have a mattress topper for the rear bed, and leave it as a bed most of the time. I can see from the forum that a lot of folks use mattress toppers that are between 1.5 and 3" thick. I am curious has to how others made their toppers. Here are the alternatives that I see:
1) Buy a larger (queen size) topper, make a pattern using the cushions, and then cut the foam. Have Lindy sew a custom cover for it.
2) Do to an upholstery shop or some place that specializes in such things, and have them construct a topper.
3) get a full size mattress (54X75), cut 5 inches off the width, and call it "good enough" even though it will an inch or two too short on the length.
One option I am considering is going through Eugene on the way home and stopping at Interior Coach Creations to have them measure it and make some custom bedding. Does any one have experience with them?
Thanks for any advice. It is much appreciated.
