Perhaps to use the automotive analogy it is less a case of the difference between heated seats or not and more the case of front wheel drive verus rear wheel drive. They are indeed both cars, but there is a very radical design difference which is not attributable to "accessories".
Thanks Rev, that is a key difference. Now if someone can explain it to me in other terms than its were you put your feet so you can lay flatter.
Here are some questions about the foot box
1. How does it allow for a flatter lay?
2. I dont have a footbox in my ENO but I still lay very flat, whats the difference
3. Is the footbox just extra (loose fabric like and eno has due to its large size) fabric were you wedge your feet or is it a piece that has been sewn in?
