Nice ..Like the color.
As for the sleeping accoadations, how an old military evac gurney...they colapse small. Maybe put a couple of hooks or bracket on the wall and a couple of removable legs...just a thought.

So I laid down some indoor/outdoor rear carpet that I can roll up at night to lay down my stuff. The idea is that my gear/motorcycle can drip and be muddy and when I want to go to sleep, I simply unload, roll up the gray dirtiness and have a clean surface. There was enough to put a strip under the rear passenger feet and the front passenger footwell since we're going to have MUD in Mojave this weekend.
There really is a lot of space back here! I have about a foot of extra feet space, plus about 3 feet on the side for either gear or a bunkmate.
I friggen LOVE this van!

Mojave Road was a blast. I don't have a lot of photos because as we were pulling into camp on day 1 (Saturday), I hurt myself. I was on the roof scouting the road apparently (I don't remember it) and I took a tumble off. I fractured my femur.
Before that, we shattered the passenger front window and cracked the windshield due to the weather stripping giving out. So those need to be replaced. Then I'm talking to my fabricator (www.dirtboundoffroad.com) about custom building some aluminum bumpers, roof rack and ladder. But all that will take time as it seems my medical bills may be kinda high (medivac from the desert)
Whoa! I wish you a speedy recovery!
My sympathies for your bad luck. I hope it was a simple fracture, and that you're stumping around in a cast already.
When you're feeling better, it would be helpful for the rest of us to learn how you summoned help, how your care was handled while you waited for help to arrive, and how the evacuation took place. The Mojave Road is pretty remote!
Thanks, but it wasn't bad luck. All my own fault. I'll be the first to admit that. The story is told in the CA & NV section if you care to read about it! We had a good team with us, and another portal guy (or at least Rover guy) was out there with active duty status (according to my brother) and he led the first response.
The van has has sit since then , but there's no way I'll be able to get in and out of it for a few weeks. I hope to make a camping trip Memorial Day weekend!
