Pleasure-Way Sun-N-Fun Rally

Sixty-eight vans gathered at Sun-N-Fun resort in Sarasota November 8-12, 2017.  Great educational sessions from Pleasure-Way and Mercedes-Benz were well attended.


Our sincere thanks go to Pleasure-Way and RV World for hosting the rally.

In addition to running a great Q&A seminar, Phil Nickle provided one-on-one advice at our vans for any owner with questions.

Here are a few photos of the fun. None of them are protected, so feel free to download any of you or your friends.

Simple Bedding

The van converts from a couch to a bed every day. To simplify the process, Beth made a set of fitted sheets for the two ottomans. We leave these on all the time.

The evening conversion is:

> Slipping a fitted sheet over the couch.

> Put the bed boards in

> Slide the two back rests over the bed boards

> Lower the couch

> Pull the top sheet and blanket from the overhead and unroll it onto the bed

We didn't cover the two back rests (infill cushions) as our feet don't really end-up resting on them.

She bought two sets of sheets, cutting up one of the fitted sheets for the ottomans and splicing a portion of the flat sheets together to make a bigger sheet that is easy to tuck in to the fully made up bed.
You can see how big the bed is when the couch is deployed.
Velcro holds the sheet to the cushion
Fitted sheet was cut to allow the blocks on the cushion bottom to fit through.
