Top Bed Construction

My campervan design is for there to be a 6ft long top bed (full width of the van) when required for one / two night stop overs. But when on a campsite for a week or so, the bed to be removable to then be in the awning. The top bed should also act as a (3ft long) storage area for bedding etc, when travelling.

To achive this I had to install two aluminium angles, one each side of the van. These would be used to rest the remoavable bed base on.

Removable folding bed bases would then have to made to bridge the gap between the angles to create the bed base.

When put across the gap a 6ft bed base was formed.
