Another one for fans of microcampers – sleeping in the smallest cars, like this for Fiesta or Renault Twingo from my previous post. This is a camping conversion of a Ford Fiesta for a single person, but can be adapted to two people – just build the bed twice the width (and maybe use a roof storage box).


  • plywood – I’d recommend light wood like poplar tree, about 12mm thick
  • rubber foam sheet – as padding for the extension behind the seat part
  • hinges
  • your choice of a sleeping mat – inflatable, foam or anything soft to sleep on (but sturdy enough so it doesn’t move around)

And that’s pretty much it! Cut the plywood to required sizes, join with the hinges where needed, add padding and the sleeping mat, pillow and sleeping bag and you’re good to go.

Founder of, avid traveler and outdoor enthusiast. Car camping and microcamping allows me to keep traveling and exploring with a much greater level of freedom & privacy – to go anywhere and sleep anywhere. I didn’t have 30K to buy a VW Multivan, so found my way to the world of everyday car camping conversions. Here I share my experiences and what I learn.
