Modifying the bed layout in our 67 Overlander
My boyfriend and I have recently purchased a '67 Overlander that we plan to renovate and live in full time.
After we got the thing home, we realized that the two beds between the kitchen and bathroom that we thought folded out into full-size beds did no such thing. I would really like to remove one of the twins and modify the other one so that it could be a day bed/couch kind of thing during the day, and fold out into what would equal a full-size mattress at night.
Have any of you done this? If so, what type of material did you use for the mattress? I'd like it to be pretty substantial and comfortable since we'll be sleeping on it every night. Also, we are throwing around the idea of using heavy duty drawer sliders or something similar for the sliding mechanism.
Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated!
