Thanks!

Also note that Matt (formally of CCV, but now on his own) is getting his company off the ground and has posted a few photos. Looks like he used a steel beam to get a straight bar for a similarly adjustable bed but without as much storage as I built in (a totally reasonable choice).

See attached photo or his current facebook page or on his public web page:

Hopefully the best trips start with minimal planning — because I’m taking my retired dad on a road trip through the southwest in December. It’ll just be the two of us and we haven’t camped together since I was about 11yr old.

This means I need that second bed to be working. I won’t have time to make the carpet match and all that but putting in a “tailgate” extension that pops into place over the crew seat was pretty easy (as planned). It’s cozy but for winter camping I think it’ll be better than asking him to sleep in a tent or climb up into the poptop.

Like this the bed is 6’6” plus space at the back windows by 42”. We have an air mattress that fits in there.

The tailgate flips up and rests back out of the way when we are driving.
