Drop-Down Carbon Bunk
Once a 'Custom Haus Only' product for us to install ourselves, we're thrilled to have them available as a 'self-assembly kit'.
We've worked hard to make the elaborate rigging involved with this product accessible to anyone capable of threading a rope through pulleys and following basic instructions.
The kit comes with the 'how to rig' instructional film link along with walk-through instructions including all fittings and parts for the innovative, marine-inspired, product.
This is it for us. The ultimate, less-is-more campervan solution for anyone looking to retain the use of the functional space within the back of the van, while moments later a means of accommodation.
Please note that each kit is measured, assembled, rigged then de-rigged then packed. This process can take up to two weeks for all orders to be shipped.

Can I sleep in it while it's 'in the air'? Unfortunately not, people get up to all sorts of things in bed and with that, along with heavy focus on weight saving they're only rated to be used flat 'on the deck'.
Will it fit in my van? While this kit is for a Volkswagen T5 / T6 there are very few other vans we've struggled to fit them too. So long as your van is a similar size to the T5 chassis you should be ok however you might have to be of the understanding that it might require a little 'off piste' thinking to install it. Please reach out via email@example.com and we'll advise you the best we can.
Does it come with a mattress? It'd be very easy to say yes however, we appreciate you might not adhere to the same comfort levels as us. Our dream go-to mattress is available from our friends over at Andes. It is waterproof, extremely light weight and has adjustable inflation allowing for soft - hard. Very reasonably priced and fits PERFECTLY too. The 'Andes Explora 10cm Double' is your friend.
How invasive is the install? Not very, the self cutting self tapping screws supplied are very user friendly and easy to use. The anchor points are deliberately discrete along with being utilised for their strength.
What is it for? 99 days out of 100 vans are used for their sole purpose, a van. This kit allows a van to be used as intended, a functional moving space. This setup has a heavy focus on retaining that while at a moments notice having the ability to utilise one of the biggest, comfiest beds in the camper-van sector.
Can I keep my bedding on it? Absolutely. A standard double sheet, double duvet and normal pillows are the suggested setup and our own vans are always rigged and ready.
How much space does it take up? The carbon frame is 1300mm x 1950mm and while it is designed to fit snugly in the roof of a T5/6 it should fit most medium/large vans. Our favourite mattress is 10cm add a few extra CM's for the duvet along with the natural 'dome' in the roof you loose very little. It will work with SWB + LWB Kombi vans so long as the passengers in the back are no taller than 6ft.
I am scared of installing this product myself, can you do it for me? Very little can go wrong while installing this kit, we're at the end of the line should you need any assistance and if you can assemble flat pack furniture and possess a drill, you'll be more than capable. You're welcome to jump on a call with one of the team to talk you through the product before purchase or if help is needed with rigging.
Please note that each kit is measured, rigged and assembled here, then packed back down. We aim to ship them as soon as possible during busy periods it can take up to 2 weeks.
