Wanted - kids cab bed Sportsmobile version, or similar

Hi,
I need a kids bed across the front seats of my NCV3 Sprinter. Sportsmobile makes them but they are too busy with projects currently. I don't have time to build one and yes, I know that would be cheaper. If you have one to sell or are interested in building one and selling it to me, I would consider that as well.

attached are pictures of the Sportsmobile one, as well as a hand built one (and link to build instructions) from a Roadtrek customer so you can get an idea of what I need.

you can email me at ernest@eculver.com or 415 302 4156, thanks.

I think that is a GREAT idea. The 5 year old gets to control the Stereo from bed.

That is pretty slick! Cool idea.

And if the kids are sleeping too late, you just open a door

I've seen something "upside down" from the way those top pipe sections anchor the bed in the door - that is, similar sections through/under the crack between hood and front fender, with webbing loops sticking out (for securing a kayak or etc.).

I love it. One only issue I could think about is how safe is it for the child to climb out. And yes we should not open the doors.LOL
As of now our 3 can still all sleep on top together, but that wont last long.
With the Sportsmobile version - It looks like it sits right above the console, but isnt that higher than the seats? Just wondering how this works.

I always thought the SMB version rested in the door arm rests, and for some years I think it had a divot out where the console was...? I've never seen one in real life.

I have a buddy who just built one for my other buddy with an SMB, I'll see if he's interested in building another to sell.

I look forward to hearing whether your friend is willing to build it for me (making a profit, of course), thanks.

I'll let you know as soon as I hear back. What does the one from SMB cost?
