There is a multivan seat in the classifieds (not me) - Variotech seats do come up occasionally - there were 2 or 3 on ebay at the start of our 'summer' that went for under £500, but never when you ready for them of course........

Maybe it's just me but we have a memory foam topper and a duvet type topper on ours and i still find it rather firm. Get the impression (from people i've spoken to) that not many people lie directly on top of the seat/bed.

I'm tempted once again to ditch my multivan seat and go variotech route. I find the seat bed uncomfortable without a topper.

In my opinion wouldn't be much comfier and alot of money to fork out. We bought ours from a conversion company who were selling it and it was in fab condition but so glad we didn't pay full price. They are a really safe seat/bed but comforthsy: Any chance you could try one out before you buy (friends etc).

Thanks for the reply. From a quick read around the multivan and variotech seem to have the same sort of qualities. Both great seats that make an OK bed. Over the last 2 years I've probably spend 8 months sleeping on my multivan bed and it just has to have a topper on it.

The other thing I liked was the city van type layout and it seemd I might be able to get that with a variotech. That and it would slide..... If the multivan seat could do the sliding that would be cool.

You could get that with the T5 interior with the rails
Would be safe and tested too

I've had a Variotech fitted in my van for 3 years now mostly being sat on at the moment by the kids. If I was to buy again I'd only buy the frame/plastic covers and runners. You should be able to make some good savings by doing the rest yourself. As I remember seat covers alone were 250 in inca cloth:eek:

Hope this helps
