The awning is a Harrison an older style one I got from my friend. It can be zipped up and left when you want to drive off somewhere when camping. The cooker, chairs etc are in there and the chemical loo set in one corner.

If I park right I can unzip one side and get into bed through the side door of the van. This pic was taken in Ingleton Yorkshire during the big trip down to Cornwall.

The people I have managed to get parts from are http://minitruckcentral.com/mtc/subaru-sambar-parts-catalog/ and though based in Canada they can have stuff to you very quickly.

I've had a busy year so not had a chance to go camping yet. Where did u get the rock n roll bed and have u got pics?

I know what u mean about driving in wind. Do you know if its possible to fit stiffer suspension or stronger anti roll bars? I think my suspension is quite aged do not sure if that's all that's wrong.

I also use japanoid in Canada. It seems wrong that I can order parts faster from Canada than through the UK.

I got the bed from

http://www.volkswares.co.uk/t4/t4-rock-and-roll-bed/

the 3/4 size fits perfect in the Sambar. you need to build a box in the back for the rear of the bed to rest on with a batten on the rear edge. I will post pics of it both as a seat and as a bed. I managed to buy foam for the seat cushions just as the foam place here closed down so got a good deal on them. Spares in the uk are almost impossible to come by I have to say and many a day have trawled the net trying to find bits. I can say however the headlights are sealed beams. BUT you can buy a headlight the same size at the scrappies and take all the old chrome fittings off the original and fit them on the replacement and it works grand. I know this from very recent experience.

Just a wee extra I did NOT pay what they are asking now for the seats!!! They have gone up significantly. There is another site here

http://www.rocknrollbeds.com/

this is more what I paid for mine though I see these have wooden boards on. Though by the time you put a memory foam mattress on it will be comfy I would think.

Oooh these look quite good and decent price too
