you could do one on each side with a support in the middle between the bikes for adding strength. looks like just e-track with some type type of hinge point.

If only I were in the same boat, life would be so simple.

I'll add my 2 cents.

Happi jack is too heavy for me. Moab is too expensive.
I am using harbor freight ramps for the frame because they are cheap and light. However, I wanted to be able to adjust the height and also to maximize the width to sleep crosswise. I finally decided that the best answer was the moab bed mounting kit because I don't currently have the ability to fabricate the bracers for the window openings and I wanted the vertical L track to be inset and flush with my horizontal L track. So, that was $900 added to my $75 for the ramp. I am going to make my own angles to bolt horizontally to the to the L track. I am also going to modify the ramp sections to adjust in width. (They won't be a quick adjust like the moab, but I don't really expect to move it around much after I find the right height.)

Seems to me if youíre making the horizontal pieces then all you need is the vertical l-track and bed/frame. Iíve seen people take stock (non contoured) l-track and secure then to the vans framing conforming them with clamps (and a few extra set of hands). You may be able to save the $900 if you havenít already purchased and wanted to try this.
What will you be using for the bed surface and frame?

what powers the up / down movement of the "CreatID" bed ??

two humans ? one at each end of the bed ??

and would that bed be able to have a higher travel ? closer to the ceiling ?

it might be fine for bicycles after removing the wheels, but there is no such arrangement for fitting a full size motorcycle under that bed.

I had looked at the "CreatID" bed last year, and now they have launched modularvan.com where they are selling a pretty interesting product.

Lippert Components makes the HappiJac but they also offer the Euroloft which is the system I chose. Lighter and simpler and has worked great for us. Winnebago chose it for their Revel.
