Hey all! I'm trying to weigh my options on in-car sleeping. I've seen the Luno Life air mattress' and thought I might try to see if anyone has built any of those raised platforms. It's hard to describe so I attached a picture. If anyone has attempted this and can give me any pointers that would be much appreciated! at this point with the price of lumber, it may turn out to be cheaper to buy the $300 air mattress. :LOL:

I'm looking at an air mattress that is t-shaped and comes with a rechargeable battery pump for about $200. It's a generic fit but suitable for most mid-sized crossover. The platform idea seems cool but you can't break it down and store it in a small space. I need to be able to flip my back seats up and haul around a cooler and other gear. Installing a large wood sleeping table in the back seems like a bad idea.

Well, I want to make it collapsable to the point that it's just a few layers of plywood in the cargo area. it may take a while but I think it's achievable. I'll probably have to get with my dad to design it first with hinges and separable pieces. if I get it done I'll definitely post about it!

Is that queen or twin?
I ended up taking a nap on it last night. That was actually my first time testing it out inside the Passport. It was pumped up to about 70%-80%. A custom fitted (T-shape) mattress would be a better fit inside the Honda, but I purchased the queen-sized Intex Classic Downy airbed for only $25 back in 2019--it's now $65 for some reason. It works for my needs though, and it's easy to fold away.

That's awesome! I'm planning on going camping in it ASAP now that the weather is nice. Worst case if I buy one and later build a custom platform I can use the air mattress on top. :LOL:
