Sofa Bed plans
« on: November 05, 2015, 11:40:25 AM »
Hi,

I bought the "Van to Home" Book and the design of the sofa bed confuses me.

I do not understand how the bottom part is sliding with the top.

Was the bed designed by Mike Hudson or by someone else on Internet?

I will be curious if the Sofa Bed plans are available somewhere.

Hi Quentin, this design seems quite common in the camper conversion world. I recently watched this series on youtube, he uses the same method and and shows it working.
