Bed in front seats

Recommended Posts

Hi. Total newb here. Picking up our Alphard camper conversion in a week or so. Just sorting out sleeping arrangements.

 I’m thinking of getting a bed to go across the front seats for my youngest . Any recommendations? Thank you

Welcome to the Forum.


Should be doable. There are ingress/egress 'handles' to the front upper of the front doors that could be used for the hammock style straps.

And another set above the middle doors, or you could 'sling' around the headrests


There is quite a gap between the front seats, but that should be easy enough to deal with.


Good luck.

Let us all know how you get on.

So.. i bought a pet hammock off Amazon (£24) which protects seats and fittings whilst hiking on hand holds and head rests - a slab of memory foam cut to size (£33) and covered with a duvet cover (£0) and will bridge the gap between the seats with a bit of wood or fill the gap with a cool box and we’re good to go!! Thanks for the encouragement!!
