My DIY Hightop Build

Hey everyone been reading through threads here while getting organized to rebuild my DIY interior. My first build last fall was before I got a Fiberine 24" hightop last month.

First off I'm going to build a 4' x 4' expanding to 4' x 6' bed lofted over storage "garage" for MTB and gear. Any threads with something similar?

I'm considering a moving bed that can come down to loft height for sleeping and be raised up out of the way at other times, but I haven't even begun on my build due to a prior landscaping commitment. Good luck with your build.

I plan to do something similar with my own van - something with a garage for my mtn bikes, a place to sleep, a place to shower inside and a place to s.... ...poo. As well as a minimal kitchen and desk space.


I have a rough idea in my head. I just need to get it down. Some of the RV van companies have done hide-away inside showers that look interesting.

Looking good. Curious to see what you do with the loft bed. My 24" top is on order now so trying to get some ideas going

Installed a new Spectra fuel tank. Lots of flakes in the old one.

Right now I'm planning on 3/4" ply platform the full width of the van with 28" full extension sliders bolted under it with steel angle/strut supporting 1/2" ply for a 54"x28" extension
