Retro fit upper berth sleeping accommodations in a New West van
 
Can anyone help me to add rooftop sleeping accommodation to my newly acquired 1999 New West Chevrolet Express van? Any bits of info appreciated.
Thanks.

How much do you want to spend?

Are you considering a roof-top tent? https://www.popularmechanics.com/adv...oof-top-tents/

I;m under the impression that New West offered a roof top bed that appeared to consist of 2 or 3 plywood panels. I've never actually seen a real one. to sure what to expect re; cost. If anyone has some pictures, I'd love to see them. I'd be interested in a do-it-yourself conversion if that was practical (and safe!).
Thanks for any input you might be able to add.
Sorry. Not interested in a rooftop tent.

Are you looking to build something like what we see in this picture (the plywood sheet)?

PS: The complete link doesn't seem to make it through. You have to scroll to one of the inside shots.

How about this? :lol:

Yes; very similar to this, but not so big. Based on a Chevy Express.

That's exactly what I'm looking for. Details on how this bed is made would be greatly appreciated.
