Sportsmobile Weekender?

Hi, I'm contemplating my next Sportsmobile and wanted to get your input.

My ideal Sportsmobile would be a replacement for my existing daily driver (Dodge Ram) and would not require all of the appliances, etc. I would prefer a pop top bed and a convertible sofa.

I really like the concept of the classic VW Weekender campers. They are VW campers with the pop top, a back seat that turns into a bed and two rear facing seats which can be pulled out.

Are there any models of Transit or possibly slightly older Sprinters (Dodge era) that could be configured this way? I would want it to be factory parts where possible - as if I build a seat or a bed it would look horrendous and instantly become a termite nest.

I like the convenience of appliances but really don't need them.

Here's a Weekender floorplan.

Any reason not to just put the front seats on swivels so you can utilize that space while lounging? Are you wanting to make the weekender seats usable while driving so you could seat 7?

You have a good point.

Must have:
- Pop up bed
- Forward facing rear seat that converts to bed - with headrests for safety - comfortable seating for two/three and forward facing

Nice to have:
- Swivel front passenger seat
- one or two jump seats (the rear facing seats) - would be to add hypothetical seating capacity plus be nice for lounging; may also be a good point for harnessing in the dog which I think more about when I go out. Yes/no?
