looks great! Have you thought about a transition strip for the interior between the wall panelling and the carpet. I can't tell from your photo but my best guess is the transition is above the mattress height and may be prone to wear or unravelling?

I'll probably use a piece of 1/2 round trim painted a contrasting colour, It's just one of those little jobs I need to get aroundtuit :D 8)

I'll post some pics from our first trip :pictures:
