yeah thatsnks guys! ideas are amazing, really liking the garage door idea and i think i could use that well! I made a bed to fit in the back of a mk7 swb low. it just is a mdf base which needs to be lightened off lots! It cost me around $70 aus. Perfect for the roadtrip we made it for! In the van we had a shelving setup on one side as it is my father's works' van. If it was made again it 100% would be better to be layed with your head on the side wall of the van. But super happy with how it turned out! I now for sure have the transit bug!
Change of plan now! Parts delivery department has two mk7 transits on the move really soon, they are high roof mwb. So dad seems pretty keen on buying one for us to work on !
With recent discussions and reflection on our previous model bed, we reckon it should be an elevated bed with a good mattress with a little fold-down ladder to climb up but still enough room to put a bike in and then we can both stand- up and move around, maybe having a little living / sitting / pit room. haha All in all having a good time talking trash with dad, thats what its all about, right?
