This for us has been a huge success attracting a lot of interest from fellow campers, encouraging us to post on this forum. Here goes hope you find an idea that would suit your camping style.

    I dont have any pics of that. I made it so it is a regular kombi once home. I only removed the 3rd row seats and built the bed as a sort of foldaway so that we can still use the second row seats even with the bed installed.
    Ill take some pics to try and show you how it works.
    Fridge - Engel 40 and 5 ammo boxes, 50 liter water and clothes bags fit under the bed.
    Cameras, binos etc fit behind the front seats.
    Works very well and takes 2 mins from stop to ready to sleep. Also able to lie on the bed when waiting at water hole etc.

    From starting off with second hand tents with holes and without groundsheets, progressing through to large family-size set-ups that take an hour to put up and (horror) three hours to pack up, we can now set up and pack up in less than 10 minutes

    I could not imagine camping with ground tents after owning a RTT.
