Froli Sleep System

I noticed this on the post referencing Mandy Lea. Apparently T@B uses this or some aftermarket, not sure. This solves ventilation and maybe comfort issues? Is anyone familiar?

There's a couple on FiberglassRV (Thom and Cari) that use this system and love it. They camp in all kinds of weather in the Pacific NorthWET and ventilation is important.

I referenced this system in discussions about Hypervent, etc. about a year ago. It is a standard system in Winnebago Travatos. It is also available for home as it replaces the box spring. We rented a Travato about a year ago and found the system the most comfortable of any RV we have ever slept in.

Not in expensive, about $380 for a queen size, BUT, if we had a fixed bed system, this would be one of the first mods we would make. You order it in a kit and then assemble it on the platform you are placing it on.

Also, don't think T@B is using it because you have to use the table as part of the bed and this has to be fixed to the surface. We have a 15 that needs nightly conversion otherwise I would already have this installed. Really designed for fixed beds not ones that convert to dinette.

They sold the #35 Parkliner (Breakfast) and made some changes to the 2010 Chevy Express 1500 AWD Van (Bed). Last I heard they've still got the van.

Tab is using it in their new TAB400 that has a fixed rear bed. Quite a bit bigger than their standard TAB..These are just hitting the dealers now. It is based on the European TAB400 that also uses this system and have done for the past few years. I have heard of quite a few boat users using it as well and it makes a rather flimsy mattress comfortable to sleep on. To me, when I get my Escape, hopefully next year, I will be installing this system.
