No worries and thanks!, i wanted to lay mine out very similar to how you have yours there, mines a mwb medium height roof. as my wife is a bigger lass i decided to make a pretty heavy duty fold out bed using hinged mdf peices, which sit onto a ledge on each bench seat either side. However she's losing weight now her condition has been treated so i may be able to re-design a few bits :)

My wife got her artist friend to paint the doors of the over the seat cupboard.

Mine's a short wheel base so I really did not have any other option but to put the kitchen where it is. I'm quite tall, so needed as much of the driver's side as possible free for a 6 foot 2 inch long bed.

The beauty of a self build is that you can swap things around if you find it's not quite working as you expected.


Found it, cheers :-) Looks great, well organised and functional. Perfect design for a camper. I am also 6'2 so have to design my be length ways, I wanted a fixed bed and garage so I got the xlwb so that I could do that and still have room. Love the idea of the extending bed you have done, seen a few of them on youtube. I have just done the same over head storage in the cab, got it from a van scrapper.

Top build mate. That has saved you a few quid :-) cant beat a self build, as you said, can change and swap things if not happy with something.

See you are using a trusty Origo 3000 stove. If you know of anyone looking for the 'build- in' 4100 version ( just needs a cutout in the worktop ) let me know by members messages as I am selling a new one for £140

Hello
i am considering an xlwb / t430 etc for a camper, at 6'2" is there enough headroom in the van?
