Sounds great! Don't think we are quite up to any conversions like that, but memory foam is something else my husband mentioned when we discussed IKEA matrasses. Our lights seem fine, although we were disappointed at first there weren't any small ones we could switch off when in bed. It hasn't proved much of a problem so far,trigano said:Hi,
We have made our own two single beds for the Tribute by purchasing foam, ply-board and material, topped off with memory foam.
I had to make an extra fold down panel on the nearside to support one of the beds. They store on the offside as a settee when not in use and are easy to manouver into position at bed time.
This has transformed the ease of use and comfort factor greatly.
I now store all the original cushions, so when I come to sell, they will be pristine. The cost of this modification was less than £100.
The other thing I have had to replace is one of the interior lights. The quality of the original one was very poor. (Cost £10).
My drivers door electric window stopped working about 3 months ago. This was repaired under warranty.
The Tribute has covered about 11000 miles now and has been superb. The 2.3 Jtd engine is a dream and pulls my little Suzuki Carry on a A Frame with no problem at all.
Have a look at my advert in the classified section for the Towball mounted box. This is an excellent accessory for a Tribute, providing that much needed extra storage space for items like deck chairs, boots, wellies, ramps, electric cables and all the other odds and ends.
