Thanx Jon I wanted to talk to a sales rep to see if I could custom order my own length the 6'6" width is standard but length should be an option according to their website hence the phone number inquiry I guess I could try the U.K. # if no-one has the U.S. contact , cheers mike

I have tried phoning and emailing the U.S. drymesh supplier with no luck. When I emailed the U.K. email address it came back as a failed email delivery. Makes me wonder if they have gone out of business, and I'm reluctant to put in an on line order if I can't contact anyone. Has anyone done a recent transaction with this company? I'm thinking of going with hypervent even though it is a bit more money. I spoke with a salesperson on the phone and I know they are not going to do a disappearing act. The hypervent is also a bit thicker so possibly even more ventilation.

I bought a roll of DryMesh in October. It arrived quickly - no problem with the transaction.
Hypervent is thicker and stiffer, so it probably does offer more ventilation. Not sure how we'll it ships tho'.... I bought mine locally from the mattress company that built the mattress for my 17B.

I purchased a roll several weeks ago from the web site. No problems with the transaction and delivered by UPS a week or so after the order was placed.

A follow up to ordering drymesh online for Canadian customers. Our 87.45 U.S. purchase which we thought would be sent USPS, was sent by courier and cost an extra 41.00 for brokerage fees and taxes.

Ah, the "brokerage fee" scam, run by essential all courier companies. This is the biggest single reason I order almost nothing online, in particular from U.S. suppliers... most do not offer (and guarantee they'll use) delivery by USPS/Canada Post.

Ours came from the same company via Canada Post - without request - and no extra charge. The yarn company in WA I use ships by USPS/Canada Post but they still collect duty. Maybe this company just got caught not doing what it's supposed to do!

I hate it when companies aren't up front about what it will cost in total.

The internet is the world's "Angie List" where one can post reviews of companies, good or bad. Sooner or later the bad ones will improve or not survive.
