I need to come up with something that rigs off the dash.
Agreed however my Ms Nibbs realizes my work van is just that so she'd be partially content with something in that space. Also Ram Mounts has bases that would allow us to relocate the upright stanchions to the rear of the passenger or driver's seat which might be a more suitable installation?

Ideally I could/would have something retracting from slightly behind and between the stock seat backs, hinged so it folds downward to rest on the stock console. Since the laptop would be used for very short periods it would spend most of its time on the van stowed away.

Wanderer and I will meet up this week and his device will be a great beginning on whatever path I eventually take.

More on this developing story as it unfolds!

I bought the Ram mount for my van to use the same way your wanting to

Having used this before in the past in my repo truck they are solid and never a worry of the laptop falling out of it

Havent installed yet but have no doubts to quality

Sitting in the box still just need to install

Hoping I might be able to use from drivers seat as well as passenger seat spun backwards

Will see

Thanks for your input OutLawImages---very much appreciated.

I've not taken this any further as of today---the van in question is having engine issues so the final steps building it out are yet to happen.

Most likely I'll either devise a way to carry it in a small case or "pocket" rather than a dedicated Ram-type mount. I'm guessing the laptop would run out of charge between my very infrequent uses.
