Getting ready for a solo multi month cross country road trip to visit National Parks and hiking. Was thinking about a roof top tent, but this fits my needs better.
  1. Removed passenger side front and rear seats.
  2. Built a platform bed
  3. Cut a twin size 6 inch memory foam mattress to width

Sounds like a blast! …and if you’ve got a PB you can sleep in air conditioned bliss if it gets hot!

When you first mentioned this in another post. I was curious if bed across back would be longer than going dash to rear wall.
Looks pretty good on length now👍
With much room behind driver for stuff
Must keep us posted
👍👍

Yep. Dash to rear wall is much much longer than side to side. This mattress is 75" in length.

Cool idea. Do you get dash lights or codes with seats out?

Yes. A rear belt monitor fault Service Required message on the dash that I have to press the okay button to clear. Also, get the SRS icon light that will stay on, but it isn't annoying. Not a single chime..that's a plus!

Nice and good luck on your journey. I will say this is the one time I would NOT appreciate the swoosh on our front windows! I’d feel too exposed :ROFLMAO:

I made custom window coverings for all 6 windows. They have reflectix on one side and matt blank vinyl on the other side. Especially on the East Coast I sometimes have to use rest areas that are too public.

Outstanding! 6 inch memory foam will be significantly better than any roof top tent and no ladders to climb. :) You still have legal passenger space for 3 in the truck. Well done.

As others have said, please post pictures along the way. Safe Travels!

Any plans to mount a sidearm within arms reach? You know, for bears.;)
Right? It would also be great to integrate the 360 cameras into an early warning system while the PB is idling quietly with the windows up and blacked out.
