Build the sliders if you have to.

Not that hard.

Get on Google and find some ideas.

been working on a platform or bed that lowers from the ceiling in the back of the bus and fits next to existing bench seats to form king size bed in the back, this way we can leave the sheets and pillows on the bed and just raise it back up to the roof when not in use. Nancy got the idea from Lippert Industries "project 2000" so we just had to make one by ourselves.
Built the frame, ran 1/2 steel rod down the center connected to small worm drive that can be used with a electric drill. BUZZZ it goes up and BUZZ it comes down... a lot easier then the bed frame and pieces of 3/4 inch plywood.

Will up date with pictures as we get closer.

I think I got it, the start of the flying bed.

So you attach nylon 1" seat belt to the rod in all four corners two go over the top of the rod and two go under the rod, spin the rod bed goes up or down. just have to make some final adjustments and we will be good to go.
