I would like to share this method for building a removable bed platform that i have used in several vans that i have owned over the years. This example of platform is inexpensive to build, lightweight ,sturdy, easy to assemble / disassemble and easy to store .I have attached a few illustrations to better explain this method since i have no clear pictures of my old vans. The materials used are as follows - - - HOLLOW CORE INTERIOR DOOR SLABS - - - BED FRAME HOOKS / BRACKETS - - - 3/4 PLYWOOD . the speakers and the junkyard dome light are optional .

Re: "EASY" removable BED PLATFORM

Nice, thanks! I just built a temporary version using a design of my own inferior ingenuity. When I decide that I want to move to something more permanent I'll gladly rip this off as long as your royalty rate is reasonable.
