Default Re: Hello All, and questions re: Roadtrek Parts

I've done the Resonator mod and hanger mod months ago. As far as perceptive noise inside, the hanger mod does more than the resonator, outside noise, the resonator helps more. I'm not up to the supertrapp mod as I believe that will increase backpressure too much as mentioned above.

I have recently ordered some stainless flex pipe to isolate generator vibration from the exhaust, and a 1.75 inch magnaflow muffler. I will increase the diameter of the exhaust pipe too. I'm hoping these will further quiet the exhaust. Then I believe some sort of dynamat sound proofing will be in order under the van (between the Genny and floor, covering sleeping area) however I think this will be very involved. I move so frequently the flex exhaust extension may not be appropriate for my situation, but is a good idea for normal boondocking.

How about the parts inquiry? Anyone know of a good source for affordable parts?

Some say a futon may be the answer.
viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1672&p=7358&hilit=mattress#p73 58
or the custom build route as you've already looked into.
viewtopic.php?f=9&t=897&p=2929&hilit=mattress#p292 9
or eBay
viewtopic.php?f=9&t=793&p=2425&hilit=mattress#p242 5

No idea how reasonable the prices are. Depends on your definition of affordable, I guess.

We have an "improve mattress" project on our list of to dos, and I'd probably go with either an
air mattress, or possibly the futon.

Good luck.
I'm still trying to source a non-combustible exhaust hose to try my "move the noise farther away"
experiment. They appear to be pricey, based on recent online googling.
