In light of the near decade track record of Foamstream, I might suggest that it's surviving without a scratch is perhaps the most UNremarkable part of this most recent storm. That thing is a TANK!

I am pleased to hear that you and yours are doing well and plugging along.

:thumbsup: :applause: :beer:

Thanks Rob !!! This Fall it’s due for a good washing (outside ) and maybe even a re-paint !!! :D

At one point during the ten days of no electricity ( Ida) the wife was complaining about the Heat … I was just getting ready to put her in the FoamStream and run the little AC off the generator , and Freeze her out . Luckily just about that time , the electricity came back on … TG !!! :applause: All that insulation ( 3.5” ) it’s like a huge Beer cooler … :lol:

Note: Something to be said for the rounded top , a lot of trailers here got blown right over, the FS just sat there , the wind blowing right over the top … It’s survived many storms like this over the years … Could be just Luck !!! :NC

I bet the rounded top kept it from blowing over and, well, of course, :beer: if it was half loaded with beer :beer:

Yesterday while pressure washing the house , I couldn’t help but do a little washing of the FoamStream , which had become quite dirty during the recent storms … I did discover a little rotted canvas on the nose ( some type of moisture/fungus got underneath ) So we’ll make a little patch for that , Otherwise it cleaned up pretty well … :D :thumbsup: I told my helper we’d likely be doing a complete re=paint in the Spring .. Otherwise everything is still good !! 8)

My helper mentioned his sister was gifting him an old pop up camper …. I told him bring it over and we’d go through it and make it right… Another project … :thinking:
