Just to update you all that this was going to prove fruitful.
Here is a list of the mods that I am working on and will update when finished...
Sidetable/ foot extender mod for the Benches.
This allows for people to sleep down the sides of the BC.
Table between the benches... this is removable and unique design...
Canopy popup that fits the back of the BC to replace the tent and give more
room and ease of setup.
On demand propane fired shower.
Led Light mods that are more efficient than using the overheads.
Slip covers for the bench backpads with unique insignias.
Dessicant can for humidity control. Rechargeable.
Two coolers that support bench extensions.
Hydraulic lifters for the back doors.
Biz

Here are a few of the mods that I have done to date.
Table from a no parking sign.
The tripod feet are removeable and so is the post.
You can use the table outside and it packs for storage easier.
Extensions as side tables or feet so that you can sleep down the sides of the BC.

More coming,
Bizcamp

The side table/foot extensions are just sheet aluminum with a one inch bend that slides
under the cushions when not in use.

Ocracoke Bizcamp

Spingbreak trip in May to Ocracoke NC.
The locals loved the Alien behind the Ridgeline.
The shelter came in handy when the storm hit Thursday nite.
40Mph winds and driving rain and sand.
No problem for the travelers.
Love this thing!

Did you ever get around to doing the hydraulic lifters for the back doors? I have a system of pulleys which makes life a lot easier.

Pics from the Spring Break trip with the Basecamp.

Here are some pics from the trip.
This is probably the most remote campsite on the eastcoast.
The wind is pretty constant and the surfcasting is excellent.
Enjoy!

Bob,
Not yet but I'm still going to try the lifts.
I like your Idea for its simplicity.
