well today I test fitted my Hammock inside my Sprinter:



Bottom line is it will work without any special rigging but the van needs to be fairly empty(no m/c's inside). Nice to know I can do it if necessary.

Holy smokes, that's where we took our van this weekend. Didn't get to this road, there is too much to see in any weekend. In any year, probably. I will post photos later today, now it's time to make breakfast. Breakfast would have been made in the van again, but Danger Girl was feeling ill, so we bugged out back to SLC.
Rallybug, what van are you putting together? I forgot you are up here near me now. Or is it that I am up here by you now?
This van was great on it's first trip, but it's no school bus. We are wondering where we are going to put motorcycles while trying to live in it during the weekends, and are coming up empty. Probably going to be a trailer.

Careful; you don't want to end up like me.

We're simpletons. We long for a fancy, do it all, high MPG van, but it just ain't in the budget at the moment...

Here's our simple rig, in action:







And here's what we could have bought if we hadn't bought a house in California
