I wanted to show our approach to a camper that I developed in the family Renault Scenic II from 2006. One of the main premises was that the car had to remain unmodified.
There is space for two people to sleep and travel. We sleep head front, the tray just gets folded and is our night table, for the mobile phone, tablets etc. We use our regular home bed covers and pillows. The mattresses are baby cot mattresses from Ikea, I just had to cut 10cm from the length of each to fit.
We travel with a small 10W solar panel connected to two LM7805 to charge two 20Ah external phone batteries, enough to charge everything electronic, including torches and lamps.
It has ended being quite a comfortable place to sleep, the bed length is 180cm at its shortest, and 110cm width at the feet, larger at the shoulders.
In top of the front seat we usually have a small wardrobe made of plastic drawer for the clothes an things of everyday use, the rest of the clothes are under the structure. The drawers are moved to the back when travelling.
There you can also see the small plastic pockets for things like the torches, clothespins, etc.
In the ceiling there are two lines to hang clothes or the tablet to watch movies at night.
The mattresses are stored under the tray when traveling, there is also space for the window covers between the mattresses and tray.
There is a small storage space in the back, enough for the table, two chairs, the emergency triangles, the cutlery, dishes and cleaning stuff. It has a lid that can be seen further in the post.
There are three main storage spaces, one in the back, where the boot usually is, one in the middle where the rear seats usually are, and one in the front where the legs of the rear passengers usually are. The front space is access trough a lid with double hinges, the first half of the hinge is used to allow the front seats to reach the driving position and the second one to fully access the storage space under it.
To access the midle storage space there are two lids one in each side. The space can easily be accessed standing at the rear doors.
The disassembly process is quite easy, there are only two pins and four screws, and none of them are fixed to the car structure to avoid issues with regulation and normative.
Step/Part One, remove rear lid assembly.
Step/Part two, Unscrew the middle part assembly, then remove.
Step/Part three, remove the rear ribbon.
Step/Part four, remove the front ribbon.
Step/part five, remove the left support.
Step/part six, remove the right support.
After removing all the parts, everything can easily be stored flat, and the car remains untouched.
I hope you enjoyed the project as we did travelling with it.
Questions are welcome.
