Can that headrest be flipped over? Might make for a smoother transition. Or possibly build a custom cushion that mounts using the headrest mounting.

The front seat is pretty far forward. Remove the headrest and slide the seat back, and, if necessary, slide the second row seat forward.

Advanced RV uses a lightweight, but strong base for their beds. More info can be found in this video:

Or just make two of these... I made one and I'm a horrible carpenter but it came out pretty good and my 11 year old sleeps pretty well on it..

I Google the images for folding cots

Maybe deconstructing the legs and joining 2 together could work.

My goal is as big of a bed as possible

We made a bed for our 4 year old grand son by lowering the fron seat on to the second row seat about as seen in the pictures that Jerhofer posted. We then "filled" in with foam. The pieces we used are 5 inch thick and about 20" by 18.5" work pretty good we are planing on covering then and maybe adding some straps to keep them in place.

It worked out well..

Just yesterday I took our Interstate on our first overnight sojourn. We were "camping" out in front of a friend's house (after a 4.5 hour 220 mile drive). It was just me and my 2 daughters and so I let them have the big bed space in back and I tried Jerhofer's arrangement of the drivers seat reclined to horizontal, but I removed the headrest and butted it up to the front of the 2nd row captains chair. I had pulled the 2nd row chair all the way forward and reclined against the cabinet behind it.

I hope you can picture it but it was sort of like a domestic first class seat on 737 but with a full foot rest (the drivers seat). I slept fairly well, had no back stiffness, and only stirred when the furnace kicked on. It was in the low thirties, so I had set it at 60 just to keep the chill off.

The girls were okay in the back, with their sleeping bags and pillows from home (and stuffed animals for the younger one). Though since we were on a slight grade towards the curb, the sleeping bags slid alot. Does anyone know if you can jam on a queen or full fitted sheet, to stop the slipness factor of the ultra leather?

I keep my extra mattress under the big bed mattress, just slide it right under.

That sure won't work on an Interstate, because the big mattress is a sofa!
