I think that was an Ottawa Valley Rovers member and remember hearing he made that setup.

Can tell you one thing, it's registered in British Columbia and looks fine if you don't mind your tailgate a swinging in the wind! Could be corrected with a properly mounted stick.

Check this guy out too,

Very profession if it's home made. Can't read the logo on it.
There is also http://www.caranex.com/rangelist.html
Who have been around for decades.
I do know one guy with a platform inside his 90 that extends over the folded passenger seat.

That is pretty neat. I wonder how it hooks up to the door and if that platform can hold any weight.

I have slept across the 3 front seats in my 90, though I did not plan on it. Only reason I slept good is because I did 10 hours of driving. This would have been far better of course.

Has anyone seen something that can slide in and out and serve as a multipurpose storage, workstation and bedding unit. I like the idea of her being self contained and with no trailer required. Something like a mix of these?

That's exactly what I am thinking of building.

My solution:



Maggiolina goes up in under a minute - back down in about three minutes. All the bedding stays up top leaving more room in the D-90 for "stuff".

I'm right there with you. The two wheel housing/bench areas in the back..have it be flush. Would give what..almost a foot of storage and a flat base for sleeping. Have the entire thing be able to slide out. You could just take the whole unit in and out whenever you want to go somewhere. Just have to leave clearance for the back door to open and shut correctly. I'm also thinking about putting some storage under the front seats. A box that runs the length with three to six compartments, six inches deep...bolted so I can remove it if I want. A second gas tank and more power outlets...the list!

I would rather just sleep on the NAS basket after putting some type of floor down.

Not only that but a 2 person tent could fit on in the basket. Best of all it gives you a high shooting position against wild animals (if your allowed to pack heat).
