Went up to Pine, AZ for a test run with our dog and with the sleeping platform I made. We really enjoyed this setup and will make tweaks as we figure out our preferences.
I'm 5'2" and my gf is 5'7". We both fit fine but I think anything over 5'10" or so would be hard to sleep fully stretched out.Oh nice, you built a platform, mind me asking how tall you are and how well you fit? I'm 6'2"and am toying with the idea of building a platform for my badlands when she comes.
Here's some images of the platform. I used a sheet of plywood, 2x4s, outdoor carpet, wood screws, and a hinge for the head section. With the head section up the bed can be laid down with the seats in a normal driving position. With the head section (8 inches) down the seats must be pushed forward. Both sections can be stored in the back to utilize the 2nd row seating.
So in the last picture the upper/forward section is folded back on the rear?
Excellent job…. Wish my wife would go campingFor the interior we used a 2" twin mattress topper I got for $30 at Walmart. I also got two storage bins that fit nicely under the platform. These stored pretty much everything but our cooler and clothing. A couple blankets and our pillows. Both of us had a restful sleep and our dog did well sleeping at our feet (it was her first time camping). I had concerns about being able to open and shut the door from the inside. Both are not an issue, although to open the hatch I had to utilize the double press key fob button. Having some space on either side of the bed was nice for storing things you want nearby when sleeping (water, light, toilet paper, etc).
