So all that planning for a bed, and it takes up to much permanent valuable real estate. I want to keep my seat in the back as its comfy and I want sprawl space because that's the kind of person I am. I discovered milk crates are the perfect height and are the same height as my totes.
So 2 crates in the hatch, 2 totes in the middle by the wheel well and 2 by the door. Perfect for my height lengthwise, and in 3 sections that are removable makes getting underneath easier. It also makes organization a snatch as my soft bags and totes can be crate stored and during the day everything can be moved as needed from by the door making stealth easier. When I get extra money, I will hinge 2 sections of the bed and float the third if I just want a shelf for stacking. This gives me a cheap and comfortable bed that can be moved from one van to the next or even fit in the back of a car, I may also go 4 sections to make it more flexible and the fourth section can come out for cooking. Then I just have 2 larger Rubbermaid totes and a 3 drawer system to place in the van.

  1. Sounds like it should be a pretty flexible system. Do you have a way to take pictures? It would be cool to see some of the projects you are working on!
