I want this size bed, on a truck that’s drastically shrunk in all other dimensions. I am curious if the Volvo can fit a sheet of plywood with the seats down. Doubtful, but I’ll test it eventually

This is going to be pretty cool when finished.

I’m not going to, but part of me wants to build a staircase and turn the entire 20ft long space into a 2 floor unit. Which... Is mind boggling. I feel like I could do that safely, when 9 months ago I’d done zero woodwork besides laminate flooring.
