I'm just about done with carpet lining the interior and will be moving on to my seating and bedding arrangement. I have a few general questions about some of the specifics to those who have made their own pull-out bed using bed slats (or similar) and a simple box frame:

1) what is the overall height of the frame and slats from the floor excluding any foam on top. I'm conscious of the fact that anyone tall sitting on it won't want their head pressed against the roof panel yet still some space for storage underneath.

2) what thickness was the wood used for the frame? 1.5" square section?

3) which foam and thickness would you recommend?

I'm going for an L-shape seating arraignment and am happy to do it myself but I'd really appreciate some pointers to get me started rather than get most of the way through only to discover I need to start again because of a simple oversight!

Regards,
Jim
