FInally got the chance to car camp with my OB! I have to say the Luno mattress is pretty comfortable. I'm 6'1" and didn't really feel cramped. I could sit up well enough. Only logistical issue was getting in and out of the car in the middle of the night. Additionally I know people have complained about the headlights coming on every time you open the door/hatch. However I discovered turning the headlight knob to off, they didn't come on, only the parking lights.

Thoughts on cargo capacity? My first camping trip will be at the end of August, and need to either decide I have enough room inside or get a rack bought and installed by then.

I do have a Rola roof rack that you can't see in the photo.

I was packing for 4 people, so I had WAY more stuff in the car than just for me. So I had the seats folded down and the interior and the roof rack loaded. If it were just me, or just me and my wife I 100% think it would all fit in the vehicle no problem.

Of note: Hard to see in the photo is the battery powered fan with bendy legs i hooked to the "oh sh!t" handle. Which was very handy.

Where is my BS BL?
Not just mattress…. To fit in at 6-1, the front seat is alll the way forward. There is a gap between the fold down rear seat to the front seat. I think there is need for some support

There was an old thread on trunk dimensions discussing this. Some people have made a piece of plywood for another vehicle to provide that support. I supposed just some boxes will do by wedging into the gap.

Anyway, cool setup!

The Luno comes with inflatable cubes you put under the headrest portion so it's supported. And yes, the seats are ALL the way forward. LOL

This is awesome. Love the set-up. Besides the Ford official awnings.... I would like to find one that I can use (or adapt) on the FORD stock crossbars that came with my FE. I do not want to swap out crossbars (or have extra ones in storage) just for a 1x use out of the year kind of thing. Maybe there is another thread already about it. Any help?

Unfortunately no, I swapped out a couple different sets of crossbars to find ones that made the awning 6' 2" off the ground so I don't have to duck.

How many people were sleeping in the bronco? I’ve looked at that mattress but there’s no way my wife, my 5 year old and I would all fit on it.

Just me, but my wife and i did hang out in there for a while together. It's cozy for sure, but we both fit no issue. Kids and wife slept in tents, so it was nice and quiet in there lol.

Hi, can you give me a brief insight into packing onto your roof basket? Totes, bags, etc.
I am planning a car camping set up too, for my OB due to deliver in august and would like bike rack on the back so am looking at roof storage. Is it more beneficial for a basket rather than a roof box, do you think? I’m new to all this - thank you!
