The RIB bed is widely considered to be the best Transporter seat/bed on the market.
The RIB is ultra easy to use, it differs from a traditional rock & roll bed in its clever folding mechanism meaning no pushing or pulling is required.
The RIB is more expensive than the Smart Bed.
The Smart bed is also easy to use, it features gas struts to make folding from bed to seat mode a simple push/pull input.
Both are great choices.
From a comfort point of view the RIB slightly edges it in our opinion but it is close. Again the RIB is slightly ahead in ease of use (turning from seat to bed and back)
Given the much lower price and not being far off the overall quality of the RIB, the Smart Bed does not look out of place in any of our conversions.
