As per title i have a ikea lycksele seat sofa bed for sale, lots of people are now using these to put in the rear of the van as a cheaper alternative to the rock and roll type bed. Its the double version. Modifications are needed in able to fit between the wheel arches. Brand new in the box never opened as i have now decided to go with another method. I would have taken it back but i have lost the reciept. Pictures are on their website. ikea.co.uk. Collection from sunny Essex. £30. Paul. 07514295118 :)

Raised about 6"-7" to clear arches

Before I get one of these can you tell me what you used for a mattress?

Paul, PM me your number, if I can source a cheap mattress I'll take it. Could collect tomorrow?

Hi, I am thinking of going this route fitting an Ikea Lycksele bed. Do you have any pictures of it in place? Is adjusting the height the only mod required?

Just had a quick look on the ikea website. Am I correct to assume all these sofa beds by Lycksele use the same basic £50 frame, so all the beds featured up to £205 which include mattressess and covers could be modded to fit. Ie raised 6-7 inches?
