Very well done. Simple and effective and still usable for cargo with platform removed.

The front bed panel drops down to a bench seat when in camp mode. It is supported on the wheel tub box and webasto enclosure. Very functional and easily reconfigured.

I have redesigned my table platform for the new conversion. The front half of the table will convert to a seat for additional passengers. While traveling by myself with need for only one bed, the seat will make a step to make it easier to get in/out of bed. One of the 98 changes/modifications that are on my list to improve the second iteration.

That is a nice surf van. Van Specialties does terrific work.
I think your dog is looking for his 'place'.
Can you tell us about the utilities? (heat, water, electric, etc.)
