Thumbs up

Actually that is what I plan on building for my ceiling loft' bed until everything else is out of the way! However, a cot that sags too much is not good on the back... he may not move when he sleeps but if he needs to he might not.... if you have time maybe tighten up the sag from one side? I think it's great! (That IS how cots are made, remember?! )

Thumbs up.

Again, love this build! How did you attach the headliner? Great job on that too, I love the look of it. Did you drill screws into the ceiling ribs? I'd like to avoid putting lots of fasteners there, it looks like you've accomplished that.

Thanks again! Cheers!

Yes! We're thinking about a foam pad.

I fastened it with Plusnut. It is an insert that you install permanently in an existing hole. Once installed, a bolt can be fastened


See http://faroutride.com/plusnut/ for more informations.

About tree Plusnut on the wall and two on the ceiling.

Excellent! I'm using Rivnuts in certain places on my van as well. I think they're roughly the same. Only 2 on the whole ceiling or on each rib? You did a good job hiding the screws on the headliner itself.

What did you use for the headliner material? I guess I'll just look at your website.

If you ever come to Northern California, we should go on a bike ride together and compare vans!

Faroutride is not my website but they did a excellent work too.

The screws has hide by a layer of laminate.

The headliner seen to be strong enough with this 5 1/4-20 bolts (one on each rib)
