Anyone implemented collapsing railing for the roof rack / roof deck?
This post and the attached pic (randomly online-- can't find source) inspired the question.
I'm getting Colorado Camper Van to install a rack on my poptop with expanded metal, and literally my only use for the rack will be to look at the stars, etc. In case we want to sleep up there, I thought a railing a little higher than the typical basket rails would give me some comfort (for something already really dangerous).
This guy's hammock supports are obviously collapsible, so I thought about a collapsible railing, hinged at the corners, that would be maybe 10 inches when upright. The benefit is I could lower the railing 95% of the time and have less added height than the standard basket.
Any experience with something like this?
And anyone have experience sleeping up there? (when the pop top is down of course).
