Hi All,
just wanted to say hello. I have been a member of the forum for a while, but haven't posted as I have been waiting to take hold of my first T4 lwb and my first VW too. I now have it and its fantastic to drive. I had a transit for the last two years that I converted, but the rust was just too much to manage. So, I decided to go for it and by a T4. I will post some pics when I take them. Plan is to convert to a camper.

I do have one thing I wanted to ask regarding beds. I had a rock n roll bed for the transit and decided I wanted to go for a bench bed in this one - don't want to waste the space we have. So, here is my design below - if this works. I need some opinions on if this is feasible. I think I can make it fairly easily, but am looking for flaws before I buy the box section. Any pointers appreciated. Bed is a rectangle that shortens in both length and width by one tube inserting into the other. My welding skills are average, but its not going to be structural - no seat belts etc.

Cheers,

Marc.

Hi Cheeky Lemon, this one should fit over the nearside wheel arch. It will pull out to the center of the van and then towards the front to give a bed the size of 1.9m x 1.05m (I hope). I haven't worked out the top yet, but the plan is to have the wheel arch side lift up against the side of the van to give a back rest.

Cheers,

Marc.
