In just about every RV there is an overlooked area for storage. The cabin, the front seats where you and your passengers sit whilst travelling. Sure, you could argue that you spend a lot of time in there, but what about when you’re parked up at the campsite? That’s a whole lot of real estate going begging. Especially if you’re taking the kids away, it’s the near perfect place to add a small bed, or a large temporary shelf to stow stuff and declutter your living area. Here’s a great hack to reclaim that real estate; a cabin cot.
There is nothing new about them, early VW Kombi campers often came out of the factory with a simple canvas cabin cot included.
A commercially made one for newer VW Vans worth checking out HERE – made by a bloke in NZ no less!
The concept is very simple, in most vehicles you should be able to make a cot 1750mm long across the width of the front seats [from passenger door to driver’s door] and 500mm wide.
