RB roll-over dinette or couch is a good bolt-in system, they fold up flat to the wall when not used as seating or bed. But, no room for bikes underneath. Moving the whole thing forward, right behind the front seats, allows a "garage" space in the back. You can't have the bikes inside AND sit at the same time if you have the bed/couch all the way in the back. A lot more space can be made by taking the wheels off your bikes and lowering the seatpost, but some people don't want to spend 5min putting their bike back together when they get to the trailhead. I think a couple bikes would fit cross-ways in the back 24-30" of the van; take off front wheel and turn bars sideways. Maybe make a 30" "garage" in back that is all waterproof to contain dirt and mud, and double as a shower stall?
How many people are you traveling with, or need to accommodate?
Only our front seats - both on swivels are the seats we use.
If we need to host others it is at a camping table outside the van.
Our bed is fixed and raised and runs from the back doors to the C pillar.
To not have to put away the bed every morning for breakfast etc turned out a big plus.
One person can get ready, make breakfast etc.
The bed has enough room to sit upright and a lot of room underneath: a garage with two bikes, fresh water tank, battery - electronics, porta potti, stove - drawer, a lot of other storage and the fridge. The bikes have the front wheels removed.
Except for the sink with cabinets underneath along the wall behind the driver the room behind the front seats up to the C-pillar is open floor area.
The open space allows flexible use like a quick transport of both bikes with wheels mounted between bike trails.
With all of that exposed steel no wonder you are having condensation and mildew problems.
