Hello,
In your post above under the "solid platform surface such as plywood" paragraph you mentioned "a coir bed rug". Can you please be more specific? Is this a coconut coir or some other type of coir? Because this bed is for a camper I do not have much of a choice concerning the base. It is a plywood base and I need to know what is the best way to keep any mold from forming. Should I use a special paint? I can drill holes in the 3/4 inch plywood, but don't know how big or how far apart.

Thanks for the help!

Thanks to my research on this forum, I ordered a full latex mattress from Sleep EZ. From my first call with Sleep EZ, through delivery and assembly of the mattress, I have been thoroughly impressed.

Unfortunately, I ordered a wood foundation from Luma and the experience has been the polar opposite. Luma shipped a base with a bottom section that was not built correctly and cannot be assembled. I have made multiple calls to Luma, spoken with the customer service folks over there, sent pictures of the issue and still there is no resolution in sight, after more than two weeks.

On top of the above issues, I've also discovered the middle support has a broken piece of wood. QC seems to be an issue. I would certainly avoid ordering a foundation from Luma. Given the customer service issues I'm experiencing, I wouldn't order anything else, either.

I ordered the Berkeley Ergonomics wood foundation, it should arrive in 2 to 4 weeks. I like that there is only a 1 to 1.25 space between the slats, I am using the wood foundation to put a 4 inch foam mattress on.

Good job. Just ordered a kd frame but wish I could have gone the diy route.
