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.
How did you get to be sooo smart? I love reading your thoughts and answers. It's like having someone on the inside giving me secret info. Keep up the good work and tell the boss to give you a raise.

What you see in the photo is the entire froli as it is plopped down on a queen size bed platform in the van.
Kind ah gives me the creeps looking at it. Reminds me of the movie the Terminator..."they say the machines got smart and"....

on the macerating toilet:

We had a sea land macerating toilet on board the family sailboat. Our battery system was charged by the onboard diesel into a ~400+ amp hr battery bank so no comparison there...but i can say that our macerator ran for about 20 to 40 seconds each flush. So doing the math, even though it is a big draw, a typical dual group 27 battery bank of say ~200 AH should be fine for a week's _macerating_ ...longer if there was a small charge from a solar panel.

PS...another advantage of these toilets is that by design there is much less water use in the long run. It is not really necessary to clean the black tank as often as on a non-macerating set up. And since the particle size is now very small one can utilize a 3/4" garden style hose to the dump.

Thom, how old is your froli system? I wonder what the expected lifespan of it is?

The queen in the van was put in during fall of 2010.
The queen in our 5'ver was put in last summer.

There is really nothing to wear out. Unless someone is like some Super Size Me Lifestyle person ...then i suppose one might see some pooped out springs in a decade or so?? Cari and i are normal healthy peeps so the frolis will most likely never be replaced in our lifetime.

I can say for anyone with fond memories of playing with Legos, you will have a smile on your face putting the Froli together.
