Tim, keep posting! I am very interested in PL, especially as it is made so close to where we live. Be sure to tell of more things like the LEDs. Maybe Chandler would just install to begin with if we ask. Would like your wife's feminine point of view as well. We are getting ready to retire and are thinking of getting one. We had a Lance truck camper several years back, and loved it, but I want a small trailer this time. One drawback I see; not much in the way of counter space. Of course, I realize you just cannot have everything in a 15 ft. camper, and the queen bed that can stay out is a +++!

Major question for those of you who own a PL: Is the bed comfy? I need it to be not too hard and not too soft.... Just right, like Goldilocks.

Tim, my husband spoke to you on the phone last week. Do LED lights put out more heat? That would be fine in cold weather, but not right now. They certainly do look nice. I guess you are back from the Adirondikes by now. How did it go?

LED lights put out significantly less heat.

older thread, i'm just getting caught up...enjoyable read, THX Tim for posting.

On the LEDs and heat. as stated, no real heat. Have them from bumper to hitch on our 38ft 5'ver. Love Them. Will replace all i can in the PL once in the driveway. After being on for hours you can still put a finger to any LED we have in our rig without any uncomfortable heat.

On the bed, i sat on the sofa/berth cushion. Firm and comfortable IMO. If you want to really max out comfort and function check out the Froli Sleep System I've mentioned elsewhere that would easily be installed by user in any of these Eggs.

This reminds me of the "Princess and the Pea." As I type this, there are 22,739 members of FiberglassRV. And, I'm betting 22,739 different bed needed comfort zones. Those that need/want BIG beds, soft beds, firm beds, microfiber beds, feather-free beds, need springs, don't want springs, desire air bed, etc., etc., etc., etc., etc.

I can sleep on a brick and in a small space. What do you think the chances are we'll find a 50% agreement as to what a "comfortable" bed is? How about zero? It's ALL about you and your needs.

And with the froli system you would have to cover the table with it, so that means a table and a bed piece... nah Ive heard ppl saying hey love it, and others saying they hate it. Living n a boat for a long time I built a slat bed and put my mattress on it to get airflo under the cushion because dampness is a problem.

Hi deryk, on the froli...
I saw one application with a convertible dinette. They put the froli (it is about 3" high) on the bottom of the table, then flipped it over at nite. It did not get in the way for their application.

On a similar note. You are talking about something (the froli springs+base) that could be hung up inside a closet or even rolled up. That much area/froli probably weighs 2lbs?? Our entire queen froli springs/base maybe weighs 10lbs?? Just through it down on the table and put the pad on to and U R good to go.

I guess i should check out a boat show... I saw it once years ago when I was much heavier then I am now... I wouldn't have considered it then... now, well I would really want to lay down on the pad, then the pad with the froli under it

The toilet is a Marine ceramic toilet that the owner says works very well. That's all I know at present. This is the option of course.

Hi deryk, i just uploaded this picture i took this morning of the queen froli that we have in our van (currently having an interior upfit). You can see i've folded the froli and flopped it over an island in our 5'ver's kitchen. It is light and flexible and easily stored in chunks. What you see in the photo is the entire froli as it is plopped down on a queen size bed platform in the van.

Yeah Mimi already taught us about the 12Volt macerator Toilet. Has anyone boondocked with it yet? Wondered how it did with battery power, specs mention 20 Amp draw. How long can you go without a Batt re-change with this toilet and all the other 12 Volt items?
