This simple conversion is a good way to test whether you will enjoy car camping or not. Or whether you want to do a more advanced conversion later. All you need is a double bed grill, some hinges, and legs – you could make them out of wood or buy ready-made legs from a DIY shop.
You can easily decide on the height – depending on whether you’d like more storage space underneath or more headroom above.
Just add a foldable mattress – or two (you can find it in Lidl or any home & garden shops for around 30 EUR a piece).
What I like about the conversion
- easy to make as you are only adjusting the bed grill, no need to create the whole bed yourself
- can purchase all of the other parts too (legs, mattress, hinges)
