    Probably denmonkey, he has great vids

    In my gen2 I used a piece of 20mm MDF and 3x old brownbuilt steel shelves which just happened to be tall enough to slide my esky underneath. I used some hinged sections of MDF to make a sleeping platform all the way to the front seats (fold front seats forward)
    I'll upload some photos for you soon

    If I were to do it again I'd use alu tube & the connect-it/qubelock stuff, however I was on a budget at the time

      That's who it was!

      So your platform was higher than the 2nd row seats folded down?

        Yep my platform was about 10cm higher than folded seats, I just put a couple of blocks of wood underneath when I folded it out & then a couple more bits of timber to prop the ends up near the front seats. Heres a few piccies:

        After all that effort, it turns out I get claustrophobic so only ended up using the bed twice & later added a cargo barrier.

          Yeah it's not the largest of spaces. Thats a good looking setup though, well thought out.

            Sorry for slow reply. That is really helpful, thanks. I really should check on the height on my ice box and typical fridges with the idea of putting that underneath, though I was hoping to just keep the height the same as the folded seats to save having another piece to put in and take out

              Happy to help

              My Waeco CF-40 needed another +50mm underneath the shelf to fit. Again, an afterthought - I'd already done the whole fitout before I decided I wanted a fridge. Fortunately I managed to squeeze it sideways behind the front passenger seat. Only good if you've dont have passengers or someone with short legs!
