Roquefort, which Froli system/configuration did you get? I haven't seen the Froli before and am very intrigued by the concept!

Froli system

Hi msimon.
The FROLI System is a german produkt, just google "Froli Bettsysteme" and you will see it. Their website is available in english, you see all details and can even order online!
They also do special tricky stuff to store plates and cups etc. i bought it all and can definitivly recoment their products!
A bit "pricy" but worth!!! No more rattle and rumble while driving from back-upwarts....!

You should get the system following your bedsize!
Each size is available, consider 1 inch as 2.54 cm. I spent some time and cash, but i sleep like on a cloud....!

We left today Frankfurt Messe "Ambiente", was a good show!
We met a lot of customers from the US as well!
Ma pleasure was, the buying team from "Cracker Barrel old Country store" came again, they now are very interested in our product!
Hey girls & guys,,let's do some "Guerilla Marketing":
Once you stop in one of their "nice🇺🇸&#128077 restaurant stores, ask for olive-wood products...! this may increase their interest😜😜😜🇺🇸👍

We left the freeway and drove thru the UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE "upper mid Rhine valley"! An amazing trip, tiny roads and cute "germanš wine villages!
We used the ferry boat to cross the river Rhine, Bangles has an enormous overhang...! We "scratched the hitch badly while entering the ship.
Anyhow, an impressive trip! We bought wine, we stoppd often and enjoyed the nice spots, by ignoring the grey (!) weather.
We saw dozens of castles, very tiny roads between River Rhine and the Tracks from the railway...!
Anja followed in her Jeep, she made many nice pictures from Bangles!
Post this latet for you!!!

Yes, I Googled Froli and found that nickleatlantic.com sells the sleep systems in the US. They have two systems available here for RVs: "Travel" and "Star". I wondered if it was the same in Germany and if so, which system did you purchase? I think the "Travel" system has a lower height than the "Star" so maybe might not be as comfortable? I was curious about your experience as an actual user.

By the way, this entire "Adventures of Bangles in Europe" thread is utterly charming.

Froli

Hello!
Thank you for your coments about our "Bangles in Europe" thread!
It's my pleasure, that thousands if miles away ither Airstreamers are interested in "good old Germany" :0) !
Regarding "FROLI":
We used the "STAR-SYSTEM", aftermy memories ut was essier to set up and a bit (!) less costintebsive.
For our east/west queen we bought 1 Basic set + 1 additional set to fit 1.50 x 2.00 metres.
While the original mattres became "ugly", because if humidity UNDERNEATH, we decided to buy a brandnew "MALIE-METEOR H3" innerspring Matress, plus a "Memoryfoam-Topper", 8cm thick.
This make's a PERFECT "Boxspring" feeling, like in the most sophisticated 5 star hotels! (The heatpad from WALMART is the "cream ob the fruit"!)
We removed the thin, but heavy Plywood before and replaced it by 12mm super-lightweight plywood, used in Aurcrafts also (cheap stuff from di-it-yourself market).
We realized, the mattrass "moves" while traveling, also by night, i will make a "nice" sort if rail arround.
This will cover up also the now still visible "FROLI" springs.
Let me know, what you get fir a pricing in Amerika, i will compare here and if it's worth, i can sent the (tiny!) bix to you!
Today we will leave to the nirth sea coast, to breath a bit "Iode-air" and get rid of the cold!
Just fill up propane and pack up a bit "beach in wintertime" clothing!
We will either go to Belgium or to France, maybe via Netherlands.
A 300km trip only🇫🇷👍🍴🍷
Maybe some more pictures from Bangles later.

From there we went further to the french north sea coast to "Malo les Bains", the beach of Dunkerque.
This is the town, where the allied troops in 1940 at first tried to liberate Europe from the Nazi-Terror, unfortunatelly it was not a success...!
The town suffered from heavy bombardements, you still see the "wounds".
We had a winderfull spot, DIREKT next to the Beach!
Will post later more Pictures!

What's better than french "Brasserie" Kitchen, Wine and a classic Airstream...?
Correct: A second Airstream to choose the "right" one per tour...!
