Default Convertible bed

We decided a convertible bed with a bench seat in front of it was the best solution for our needs.

My neck hurts just looking at that seatbelt with no head rest above it. I cannot turn my head more than 30 and I still have painful spasms because of the low-speed whiplash I got 54 years ago in a car with no head rests.

My neck hurts too...from trying to look at the pictures better.

Is that a thin water tank along the floor and up the right side of your garage....if so , did you fabricate that yourself ?

Nice solution. I made an attempt to make seating out of my platform bed but we got the RV before we could put it to use.

Planning on doing a similar design for our 118". We need a bench seat, but also need a 6' bed. We had a bunch of requirements and spent hours trying to come up with some fancy design, in the end, this was the easiest.

Robert just saw your question, we are in the Baja now with spotty internet. Not sure what you are looking at but the water tank I have is 20 gallons under part of the bench seat
