Maricard, merci bien!

Finally, someone else on the forum who is normal sized. I am 6'4" as well, and your sofa/bed has me rethinking some things. I am trying to remember all the photos you have posted. There is a third section in bed mode, right? Is that fixed in place behind the sofa? I imagine that when the sofa is up, that makes it rather easy to access the space under the bed.

Yes The sofa bed have a third section mount with a gas shock. I could lift it easily to access the space under the bed.

This is the curtains for a bit of privacy. Work great like you can see. No light can get true.

This is the front curtain. I'm using a magnet to stick it on the van.

Florida is so great for a family trip. We have a warm temperature and a lot of sun. We're really happy with Ivan and barely everything works perfect. We had some grey water tank problems and some upgrades are needed but we love the van very much.
Maybe a higher roof could be great but ..... What is done is done!

The headliner is divided in three pieces. Left, right and center.
They are all composed with a layer of 1/8'' plywood, a foam 1/4'' and a fabric similar to leather glued together with 3M 90.



Step 1: Two wood strips were installed on the frame. (Blue line)
Step 2: One plusnut per rib frame was installed (red arrows)
Step 3: I installed the side panels with 3X bolts 1/4 - 20 and some screws to the center strips before foam and fabric installation.

The center panel is bolted under each LED light on plusnut (red arrows) (I forgot 2 red arrows to the aft frame) and 4x screws from the fan (blue circles)

Beautiful job here. I am stealing this panel layout for the ceiling!
