Thank you for your response. I am thinking of 4 people, not always but sometimes.Reimo or Scopema plus Travois custom seats. All of the choices are expensive because they require a smart floor of various configurations.
Is a requirement being able to have passengers while driving or support more than a couple of people camping in the van?
Swivel seats for the front seats and a DIY platform bad can get you a lot of functionality for a lot less than the bench options if you are only ever going to be 1 or 2 people.
If you are asking me, I have everything out with building materials in there right now and probably won’t change it back until spring. I do have this not so great old photo with only 3 boards in and the bed side to side vs the normal front to back with toy chest. If I remember right, forum users pounce, mikit, baron and imants have really cool conversions under the “Metris builds and conversions” section of the forum. I can take a photo of the secured L-brackets with one of the boards, if that would help? Sorry 😞Hi - can you please upload some photos of your bed setup? thanks!

I did put old bicycle tubes, with holes punched in screw spots, to prevent metal on metal. I think that I also put blue loctite on the screws as well. You can see the ratchet hook that secures the toy chest on the left of the first photo. If I wanted to secure the boards further, I would screw in a top plate to the L-bracket. Instead, I just pop them in and out. You could also add support underneath the boards, if weight on top is an issue.
Also, there are so many great builds (that I forgot to mention) and ideas on this forum. Mine is simple requiring a low skill level and frugal, not for everyone.
We have these in various sizes. Sams and Costco sell different sizes. Very sturdy, flexible and portable.Thank you - I have a cargo van ordered that I will use as both a work vehicle and a weekend getaway camper so I am looking for options to easily add and remove a bed as needed. I did find the other posts and I actually already have several of the 2x4 height adjustable tables that someone else uses so that's probably the route I'll take. Thanks again.
