Question Doability of sleeping in back of cruiser?

Is the interior big enough that you could convert it into a one person sleeper? I'm thinking of removing the back seats and front seat, then using a plywood board and padding to make a bed that goes from the front passenger seat to the back.

How realistic is this? Is there anything that would prevent it from working?

Just buy her flowers and maybe some decent chocolate, she'll take you back... they all do eventually

Did it without removing the front seat, but I'm not tall, and I don't need to stretch out. I used 5" of foam, and used firm pillows and other items (like emergency auto items in small boxes) in the floor area behind the front seats, to elevate the foam there. Topped with an unzipped sleeping bag, and a couple of warm blankets. Getting in and out of the rear doors is the hard part.

Hmmmm been meaning to ask you, how long have you been a non meat eater and why?

Always find it curious when people say they do it for health reasons and then they eat junk food more than I do lol

I did it to save my life! So ya it was health reasons.

By definition as a semi vegetarian about 5 years ago. But Since 1981 I was on my own vegetable liquid diet for 18 months and then vegan(PIA) for about 3 years, then a strict vegetarian for 7 years. Then I started to eat crustations, specifically shrimp,lobster,crab and Abalone which I dove personal for my harvest. I also ate a very small amount of chicken during that time period. Currently and the last 5 years or more have settled on just a consciously aware vegetarian. I do not really eat junk food, we go to Taco Bell or Del taco only for fast food. I do occasionally eat Pizza, no dairy products directly but foods the wife cooks at times have butter. I put water and Soy on my cereal, drink primarily water and wine. I can't remember the last time I drank a soda? I do like and eat class chocolates but I do pay for it later with rhodesia episode. But sometimes it is worth it! lol.

Oh and BTW it was because of my meat eating (specifically beef) that almost killed me!
