After a 4 1/2 month wait, I picked up my 2015 PM! It's a 136 LR. As I said in previous posts, my conversion will be a dog transport/occasional overnighter/daily driver.

I had a window installed the day after taking delivery. It's from Motion Windows in Vancouver, Washington. There was a 4 week wait, but it arrived a few days before the van--perfect timing and worth the wait. It's a quality window.

Much to do--I will try to document my progress as many of you have done...it's been so interesting and helpful to watch you customize your PM's.

Hi ST111.

Your PM is one of the three colors I have it narrowed down to. It's hard to tell in your picture but is it a very metallic color, or more of a non metallic creme color?

Hey GapRunr,

It's not super metallic, more like a pearl coat .... Don't know if that helps..
I tried to take a better photo but it didn't really look much different.

Looks like the Sandstone Pearl. Not sure if its metallic or not, curious on that myself.

That was one of two colors I was looking at, and was liking quite a bit. After awhile though changed over and ordered the metallic silver for ours. Have had a silver car for a long time, don't see a need to change.

Bed in open position. Trying to determine what to use for mattress. 30 x 72
Must roll up to a reasonable size so it doesn't take up too much space when not in use.

Compact Mattress Idea

I prefer to sleep on 4" HD36 regular foam from thefoamfactory. It's firm. It won't roll small. But you can make two cushions and use a space bag to compact it.

Hey all - thanks for the great mattress ideas!

Also, forgot to mention that I have a Maxx Air fan, too!
