Nice base van mate. I have almost the same planned, although I'm still looking for good van. I also want a camper based around carrying two bikes, 1 DH and 1 hardtail and also fold up bed/ sleeping platform of some sort. Will be interested to see how you do yours. What plans do you have? I've heard that rock and roll bed and two bikes won't go...

I'm doing a similar sort of thing to you guys however i have 2 bikes and a kayak to squeeze in!

My plan is just to put a bed down the side behind the drivers seat in a storage box kind of arrangment, however the lid has an extra bit of ply attached that folds out to double its width. the boat can go under this.
That can leave you about 1ft half between edge of bed and NS wheel arch of which two bikes fit :) That wheel arch will be blessed with a fold down shelf for a cooker. for that muched loved brew and bacon sarnie :) Above the bed will be some small shelves for food of other things.

Only had my van 5 days and need to give her a service and get a second key cut once thats done the project can begin and pictures can follow.
