Very cool indeed Sir.....and Thanks...I had to go a different route for now On my sliders....Head room was minimul....lol....I bolted roller bearings x6 to the Base plate /box that the genset was already in, then bolted 2 rails out of 1/8 x 2 angle iron for those rollers to trolly in....only lost 3/16 floor space this way, and it rolls easy to service....

Flyingbed

A few more pics of the flyingbed, it became such a hassle to open the closet take out 3 chucks of 3/4 inch plywood and 3 pieces of bed frame rail to make up the back queen/king bed and then have to take it all down as it takes up a lot of room. the answer a 42" x 48" bed that drops down between the bench seat on the driver side and the bench seat in the very back and the one bed frame rail the supports the passenger side of the flying bed.

Apparently I am not very good at editing or uploading pics from Photobucket because I have no idea why I have two of the same pics and can't seem to get rid of one of them. Oh well

lets try this again. the inner workings of the bed.


Single rod with four straps attached that you spin with electric drill from under the bed.

I see now, I was worried that you might be one of those movers and shakers, what happens when you roll over and hit a strap..does the bed go sideways.?

That's pretty cool. A different take on the trundle bed.
