I guess I don't get it Deryk. Where did you find a futon to fit in your ParkLiner, and what did you go through to adapt it?

John,
We decided that we would keep that area as a bed and eat at the side table. Works well for us but so far it has just been the wife and I. If we did decide that we were going to use that area as a table I would leave the system at home or move it to the bed of my pick-up truck to temporarily store it until I used it again. It all snaps together so it is not problem to move. We have camped several times now and the system has made our bed as comfortable as the bed we are sleeping in at home. Kevin

Frank its a regular full sized futon that I bought(was about $300 but so much more comfortable then the existing cushions). I made a cover for it and picked up a 3/4" sheet of plywood cut it to the size of the table then lopped off 2 feet. I got a piece of foam off craigslist to make the 2 square cushions to get the wrap around couch look. I wanted to be able to have seating for a few people inside.

At night I move the throw pillows and the 2 side cushions and pull out the 2 foot piece of plywood and the board that ParkLiner included to get the queen sized bed width and just pull the futon forward it drops down into a bed. In the morning I slide it back pull the sheets off and put the cushions back in place and I have a comfortable couch. Best of both worlds and gives me about 2 more feet inside so it feels larger.

Hi John,
On the Froli ? everything Kevin said and...
I do know of one boater and also one egger that are using the froli in their rigs and have velcro'd the froli (very light...i.e. ounces) to the underside of the table(s) and also velcro'd part to the back side of the cushions that doubled as seat backs. The system is super easy to work with.

Thom
