  3. 3D print/aluminium sleeping platform

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    We wanted a platform to use on trips and I designed an interlocking box system but MRS MT BIKE found the platform that hotkarl put together and liked the simplicity so we went for that. The main barrier to entry for hotkarl’s system is the fabricated brackets, which have to be fairly accurate...

    hello, I have been lurking for a while with a couple of comments thrown here and there but now it's time to start my build thread. I made 2 sleeping platforms in my jeep when I had that, but this is a whole different set up than I have done in the past since it must be easily removable. read...

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    I have been working on a platform bed for my E. This was actually a project I "started" last year, and by "started", I mean I thought a great deal about actually doing it one day.

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    I was so impressed with all the ideas here, I thought I'd post the results of my own project. I'm a photographer and travel frequently, and often in remote areas. A comfortable place to sleep saves my budget and my body. Traveling with a bunch of gear also makes me worry - whether it's a...
