Hi there are a few people on here that have been talking about a futon fitting in the back of the vans I know that a short standard size single bed will go in as I used a old pine bunkbed as a base to create a raised platform so we could slide the poles from our market stall in under the stock when loading and get them out first.

I bought and tried to fit an ikea exarby as suggested before and it wouldn't fit. Welded up a simple slide out frame system instead which works quite well. Got a dirty foam matress from the bargain corner at ikea for £20 and cut it up to suit. Worked out a lot cheaper than proper foam.

Hi all,

I hope the link to photobucket works! Here is a picture of my Ikea Exarby Sofa bed in the back of my 1996 Hi-Jet. I have used it for several camping trips last summer. The whole thing folds flat to make a double bed filling the whole back of the van. The only modification to the Hi-Jet I had to make to get it to fit in was to move the Jack somewhere else. I have more pictures of it in bed mode if anyone would like them uploading!
