You think you want one but have you ever tried to sleep on one?

These are getting rare. Good luck.

Sleeping pad(s) or a mattress is a must. Also your feet will dangle if you are over 5'10.

Thanks! I am looking for a seat that is road/seatbelt worthy from factory, hoping using factory bench/mount would be a little safer. I will put a mattress on top of the bench

If you can't find a Chateau seat, I ordered some two-way hinges from Ali Express that will convert a non-folding seat into a folding one for about $75. I haven't installed them yet but they look pretty good and should bolt on in place of the existing corner brackets after drilling mounting holes in the right places:

Thanks for letting me know! I will keep an eye on the thread, that would be the best solution if the current benches can be converted.

It's probably going to be a while before I can get to it, doing some house projects right now.

What I can do is take some photos of the new hinges against the existing seat. I'll try to get to this over the weekend.
