After getting the tires balanced I moved it from the south to the north and a touch or two to the west.

Decided that we need a locking bathroom door knob. Now I just have to go get it... but don't want to leave Disney to do it.

Had changed both the bedroom and bath to locking knobs in our previous sabre. It was nice and I'll most likely order another couple for this one. I ordered from amazon.

Well I added the screen handle bar to help close the screen door. Lot bigger area to grab than that little handle. Later RJD

Went to the Original Mattress Factory to get a new mattress for the Vibe 6501.
The OEM mattress is a Short Queen measuring 60"X 75" so I figured that I would have to settle for Full size that measured 54"X 75". Plenty big enough for me & my DW and would leave 6" to one side for storing quilts and stuff. Problem is, the opening to the bed area is 51" at best and would require flexing the new mattress and that could bend the Frame Wire and distort it.
After talking to the Sales Lady, I found out that the Original Mattress Factory makes their own and could (within reason) make a custom mattress for an additional $50.
The option that we chose was 60"X 73.5"X 10" with a pillow top. Not only that, they will make it so it hinges in the middle (37.25"X60") so I will be able to install it.
I'll pick it up this weekend. Needless to say, I'm a happy camper.
If you're looking to replace a TT size mattress, Check them out.

Please make a note to self; store a key to the knob on the locked side of the door.

I can just see a new post in your future if you don't!

Were they matchy matchy to the existing door handles? If so, do you mind hitting your order history for the link?

They weren't a perfect match, and I went back to my amazon order history and couldn't find them... But I think this was them.

The levers in my new sabre are much different and just flat. I suggest going to amazon and searching "locking door lever"

Thanks. I'll take a look and see what I can come up with. I guess a bedroom door lock would really be prudent...

Made a new step extinction for my steps. Won't always need it but some places we have been it would have been helpful.

Is this bolt on? Looks like it is. I would like to make one and thought it could maybe hook into the lower step? Yours Looks great!

Yes it is bolt on. I can remove it for travel and put in on when I need it
