Drop down bed.

We have accepted that our present MH will never tow the weight that we need. We are thinking of going back to a van conversion. Probably an Iveco. We shall buy new and have it converted.
There are a couple of things that we really need, one of them being the fact that I can sleep as far away as possible from himself. It is nothing personal, but I do the driving and I really need a good nights sleep and he snores. It is difficult in a conversion to fit in 2 decent beds.

Has anyone bought, made or invented a lift up bed or an easy to fold bed that would fit into a panel van conversion. In our present MH we have a bed over the garage and a wide side sofa that pulls out. We thought that if we bought a high roof van we could somehow put a bed in the roof.

Any ideas please.

Custom made earplugs (like professional motor bike racers use) would be a LOT cheaper!!

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

I would endorse the suggestion of trying ear plugs.

I use ones that are intended for musicians - they look like mini Christmas trees.

They work!
