We're working on a net option as well. We looked at the Coachmen one and I don't like them. #1. if you need to get out quickly and they are little kids...those seatbelt buckles are on the ceiling. Need to be more accessible.
#2 when the net is down, those metal seatbelt brackets are hanging from the ceiling. Doesn't look good.

We proto-typed a net that goes wall to wall. If you take it down, there is nothing left but two little metal anchors.
Brian, good points on the saftey for quick exit. I have looked a while back (and just now) and was amazed on the lack of a workable constraint system. I believe a close weave(choke issue) netting system, with quick detach clasps, and not entirely from end to end, again saftey issue, would be a nice product to FR's line up. Also, for the empty nesters, the restraint system would help keep the quick "put away" items from rolling off during flight. Overall a nice accessory. IMO

Well, if you guys do go into sourcing and distribution, bring that up at your next review, explain that we need to order a ton of em and make them available at the FR dealer level. I won't even ask for a cut! They, FR, i'm sure appreciate all you do for the forum, and the ideas exchanged here. Thanks again.

Note to FR...I see this is an older post, but I'll be watching to see if there are any updates. We got the Solera 24R with the hopes we can eventually let the grandkids sleep up there. But we'll be needing something so WE can sleep knowing they can't (easily) roll off. We know nothing is fool proof.


But I also agree that some kind of cargo net up there would be a good idea for that extra stuff we tend to stow up there. I can buy a cargo net, but having some eyes already installed to hook it to would be very useful.

Will it be an item current Solera owners can purchase, or just an option offered on new builds?

Will be available through parts, but the issue is going to be a lack of back in the wall. Molly's might works.

Alot of the pro race car teams use a really 'trick' latch to hold their awnings to the framework. I build toddler beds, some bunk style, and they work great. Forgot where I got them, as I bought in bulk. Both ends connect to webbing type straps.

Well, if you do remember, let us know. Always nice to discover new things on here, as I have learned plenty myself.
