Good designs for inside your vehicle
My mechanical overhaul is now complete (and nothing leaks!) so my winter project is to overhaul the inside of my 110. I'm quite happy with the front (I have 3 seats as having passengers is more fun than a cubby box) apart from the leaking sunroof which I guess will be welded over at some stage.
So I'm hunting down pictures of others good designs for the inside of a vehicle (in my case a 110 hardtop). My only real requirement is to be able to sleep inside the vehicle easily and try to retain a double bed sized space inside.
My current design - sleep on top and boxes underneath:
Martin from bigsky-adventures.com said to go up the sides rather than using boxes on the ground as things are much easier to get to. I think in the case of food and clothing this is a good idea as you use these everyday, in the case of food usually 3 or 4 times a day.
So I'm looking at building some cupboards and easy access pouchs up in the dead space of the ceiling as it folds over to the become the side, similiar to this landy I saw at Billing:
Then the decision is to either build a wall with a sliding door between the rear and the cab to provide security, or lowering my sleeping platform by a foot or more and lowering the bulkhead to allow for my big feet to poke through:
Blocking off the rear will provide greater security, make it a little quietier when driving but other than that be in the way all of the time ;-) Any thoughts on this? I like to just pull up and flop in the back with no hassle.
If any of you have good pictures or good websites of these types of designs please could you link to them here?
Any suggestions for what to use to build the cupboards? MDF or Ply etc?
All comments and suggestions welcomed....!
BUT: PLEASE POST YOUR PICTURES IN THIS MESSAGE, not a link to a website etc then we don't have to go clicking around the place.
