Does anyone have the Froli system installed using their factory mattress? Feedback? We have the XL, so for that size, it’d be almost $400 for this system—hard to put that kind of money down without trying it first!
We added 2" of memory foam for $100 and that seems to work for us. Had to cut it to size using a bread knife, that worked the best to cut it.
I have the Froli system and it’s ok. I don’t know what it’s like without it. I am tempted to get memory foam topper and dont’ know if i’ll Keep the Froli with it or not.

The story does not say if you have tried it for a couple of night simply with the oem matress.
After 2 years, we are still only ising the oem matress, no extra foam or any othe aystem, and we sleep very well. I am a side sleeper, and so id my gf and I am also a heavy little boy and I am very confy. But I do not like soft couchy matress. They do hurt my back.
But to each their own, . Cause be confy, makes all the difference in the world.
We have a Froli system under the stock mattress (no topper) on our 2018 [email protected] XL Outback. We also use the lumbar and shoulder support “springs” as suggested by Froli. As I have stated before on this forum, our [email protected] bed is more comfortable than our Tempur-Pedic mattress at home. The only thing that could make it better is to not camp with the dog!
Froli with stock mattress and 2” lucid memory foam topper feels just like our memory foam regular mattress in the bedroom.
I have back issues and never found the [email protected] factory mattress to be comfortable. I tried many alternatives including buying a new foam mattress and adding a memory foam topper; didn't work. Last year I bought the Froli system. As I camp in the North and Northwest, I frequently had moisture issues under the mattress and thought at the very least the Froli system would solve that issue by providing air flow. It took some trial and error, changing the Froli spring spacing, but I now sleep comfortably and have no back pain when I wake. I am now happy that I bought the Froli system.
At home i sleep on a sleep number bed, my [email protected] has the froli system and stock mattress. I love the way the camper sleeps as is.
I was gifted a 3" memory foam topper (when my parents went from RV to park model). Last year I had it on top of my stock mattresses and it was ok. This year I put it underneath my stock mattresses and I like it a lot better.

To those of you who have the Froli system, are you side or back sleepers? My wife and I are primarily side sleepers and finding it a real challenge to find something that works.

We got our Froli installed, and to be honest, I’m not very optimistic that it was worth the cost. Will be trying it out this weekend, hopefully I’m wrong.
Clarkgriswald, I am definitely a side sleeper.
We are both side sleepers. We had the Froli system installed at time of purchase and were using that system with the factory mattress and a double flannel sleeping bag on our first trip. FAIL. We both woke up with sore hips.
The next trip, I threw in our two REI self inflating XL sleep pads. So... Froli + Factory Mattress + REI Pads = Success. We slept very well.
I probably don't need the Froli system and will probably take it out. Besides, with that system installed, I cant stack the mattresses and use the other side of the floor to stack equipment on.

I have a 3” latex mattress on top of the original mattresses. I love it.

Just to follow up, we got ours installed and spent a couple of nights in it last weekend. It’s okay, but definitely not worth the price in my opinion. It’s for sure better than nothing, but I’m bummed we will still need to add more foam or something.
That is a great idea to put the memory foam under the mattress!

We purchased our 2017 [email protected] from a young merchant marine officer. Said he had a bad back. The trailer has the stock mattress with memory foam on top. Just as, if not more comfortable than our at home aged sleep number with topper. I am an over-sized old goat, wifey is a little one as is the Maltese noise maker. We are really comfortable. Makes things a bit bulky, and a bit cumbersome to get at under bed storage. She does not like the underbed storage anyway. Most of her goodies fit in the two small cabinets beside the useless TV/AC.

We’ll, we’ve been traveling now for 3 weeks on our Froli bed. It’s been great for us as side sleepers. No hip pain. We have 2.5 months yet to go.
We used a couple different generic memory foam toppers, but weren't satisfied. So, we splurged and bought Tempur-Pedic toppers and it has made all the difference. Luxurious.

I thought about the Froli, but didn't want to spend the $$$. We are currently using the stock mattress, with a 2" foam pad under (I am a hot sleeper, so memory foam is a no go for me). I've also added a inflatable camping mattress on occasion, depending on if my hip is acting up. Works great for me. I ordered custom foam pads from Foam Factory (https://www.foambymail.com/).
OH and a layer of Den-Dry.
I stumbled across a used Froli on a Jeep forum and snagged it. It is worth what I paid for it (less than half retail), but in my opinion, not worth the full asking price. It's a limited improvement.

My dealer threw in the low end Froli system to close the deal. It is the all grey system. I'm probably going to take it out.
I suffer from shoulder and hip pain. Not just a little pain but a LOT of pain. The Froli system STAR system + factory mattress + 3 inch memory foam and I have very little pain. Way better than my Sleep Number bed at home. Worth every penny and more... I would gladly pay twice what I paid. Personally, I thought it was a fairly cheap solution. So soft and yet very supportive.
I use a Tochta underlayment (learned about them for my fill-size RV) for moisture wicking as well as a thin layer of cushion, but just this weekend also installed a 2" foam topper. Game changer. I am a side sleeper, and the mattress alone wasn't cutting it. Can't say enough about Tochta, though, if humidity is an issue for anyone. They make RV mattresses, as well, but I only use the underlayment.
