Camping, hiking and roadtrips are so much fun. For quick trips, I finding turning out the tent too much work when I can just throw the bed together and sleep in the comfort of my car. I turned my last car into a camper (sorry, I don’t have any pics). Now I am trying to figure out how to turn my now smaller car into a camper.
So here I plan to list of the bookmarked links to websites and videos for future reference and watching entertainment:

I would love to remove my front seat to use CasadeCivic’s sleeping arrangement. This would negate the need to utilize the trunk. But I need my front seat.

I was trying to figure out why the platform was only 2′ wide. Figured out the reason when I measured out my own car dimensions. The passage from the back seat to the trunk is only 26″ wide.
Road Trip Soul’s Civic bed-platform would be easy to fold and pack away when not needed.

Here is an inexpensive way to help help keep the car cool and provide privacy.
I really enjoyed the link for the Corolla Camper Conversion. If I could remove my back seats, I would totally do this. But I cannot. But I do plan on utilizing some of their ideas into my conversion.
I will go over the dimensions and my thoughts for conversion in a future post. But one of my ideas is building an (elevated) false floor in the trunk to make up for the 3″-4″ dip from the back seat to the trunk.
Have you ever used your car for camping? Did you enjoy it or find it to cumbersome?
