Had a few questions from some of you... Here's the best pic I have of the rear couch/bed box... Framed it up with 2X4s, screwed to the floor, and cabinets on each side... The box is about 10" from the rear of the bus, so when the bed folds up, the third, or head section of the plywood base sits on its end between the box and rear door... two long hinges allow the bed to fold, but not collapse, and the middle, and foot section of the bed have swing out feet, which lock into place... This pic also shows the l shaped brace I added to each section of bed, lengthwise, to stiffen up the 3/4" plywood... the bed is so sturdy, sometimes we leave it deployed when we are moving from place to place... I was also asked about seatbelts, at this time, I don't have belts in the couch, or dinette, but I did save a few sets from the bus, if we decide to add some..
I also picked up a old awning off craigslist, Dometic 8500, 14"... Its really cool, heavy duty arms, polished aluminum! Ordered a new fabric, and Voila! By the way, kinda hard to do alone!!!
