Pulling out the Queen

Pull-out bed in our Ford Transit van
Queen bed in our camper van


Our pull-out bed is made of 2 seperate bed frames which can slide in entirely. It consists of one fixed bed frame, and a second one which can slide in or out making it a full queen bed. The bed frame is constructed out of 18mm poplar multiplex wood for the slats, and 48x48mm wooden beams. The sliding bed frame is supported by a 28x48mm wooden beam underneath the fixed bed frame, and by the top part of the benches. To finish it off a 8mm poplar multiplex front panel is installed, with a cut out for easy access.

For the matresses we bought 2 ikea foam matresses which we cut to fit our bed frame. And then resew the matress covers with zip to fit the new size and form.

Materials used:
18mm poplar multiplex wood
8mm poplar multiplex wood
48x48mm wooden beams
28x48mm wooden beams
2 Ikea 12cm foam matresses
