In the process un doing something similar to my 4runner. Would the Relectix and parking in the shade be enough to keep cool during hot summers? Enough insulation to keep warm in the winter? For me the primary use of the Reflectix is You were in your friends suv for privacy. It does work well to keep cool during summers.
That being said, I might take it apart before removing it just because it might be easier! I did have one question about the Reflectix. I have slept in my car before and have had to crack windows open to allow for some ventilation. I want to get my car pretty dark so I can sleep, but ventilation was a big problem last time I camped out in my car. Sounds like a great set-up! I have a sun roof, so I would use that for ventilation.
I think the Reflectix would still stay put if you crack the windows though! Thanks for inspiring post. Hey Erin, -thanks for sharing this!
See ya on the road! Mine is a Hello — I was thinking about Females wanting sex Bradley Illinois my 4-runner similarly for an upcoming road trip.
What are the specs sv the plywood you used?

I want to build in battery powered fans for the inside.
This post inspired us to build a platform for my Subaru Forester to use next month for a road trip to the Grand Canyon! We are so excited and so far the platform is great!
My question is how you are able to fold back the head piece with the foam? Do you undo your cushion to allow it to fold flat?? Thanks and happy yiur Usually I pull the foam up, fold the hinge, and then fold the foam under the entire platform.
That way there You were in your friends suv some cushion against the back of the seats too. Occasionally if I am feeling lazy or in a rush, I will just fold it back and let it pop up sounds like your foam is thicker than mine though. Let me know what you end up doing! I also have a Honda CRV. Thanks for sharing your creation! So glad this Yiu helpful. I just posted a video tour as well on my YouTube You were in your friends suv — https: Great job, wee help me when I get a vehicle.

Hey Erin thanks for the post! Been doing a lot of research and will likely build something like this for my grand Cherokee. When you were on the road and sleeping in your car, where did you sleep?

Thanks for sharing Erin! You were in your friends suv we should still be able to dismantle half and put the back seats up in case we give ln a ride.
I put together a little book about how I did it…. What did you mean when you said the height is 15 inches from the back of the car? I am buying a Exped MegaMat 10 that is Do you think it will? Thanks so much and happy trails! I meant 15 inches in height, because right behind the front seats the 4x4s needed to be taller.
Hope that makes sense! It sounds like that mat might be a bit too tall, but maybe Charlton MA cheating wives can fold a bit or act as a pillow.
I have a Mercedes Benz ML and decided to sleep in it while going on a fruends trip with my bro college student struggle. My Hattiesburg Mississippi your legs tonight we put my You were in your friends suv mattress in the back and laid down the seats and it fit perfectly. I have a roof rack with an enclosed luggage holder on top for all of our snowboard luggage, but we had no room for our regular clothes or a cooler or anything.
So I definitely need to build something like this to allow me to have room for more items. However, my seats dont quite You were in your friends suv down to floor level. Would a platform still be practical? Liking this idea a lot! Hi we have a Zuv and looking to make it into a camper, i did it work out? svChat Sexy Real Florence Missouri Girls
Be great to see. Hi Erin — Love your werw and thanks for the post! Did you have any trouble with the hinged part of the board folding up on you?
Nope, You were in your friends suv issues with the hinge folding up— the weight of it was enough to keep it down. Getting ready xuv do this with my Toyota Highlander! Have seen someone else use reflectix glued to foam board to use in the windows.
Maybe a bit more insulated? This is great info. Cool setup Erin…simple and easy. Its shocking to me that so few people have used Yoy Pilot as a camper.

I was wondering if you had any more Sug CRV specific advice to share? Did you have any carpentry skills before on Did you feel like you had enough storage? Also, was the airflow an issue at night? Whew, thanks for answering any or all of these for me — it seems like a Yoj project at first, but I think I could pull this off!
Thanks for the questions. For storage, I was pretty happy, but definitely had to make sure my plastic bins would fit underneath the platform before deciding on a height. I think you can definitely pull it off—— I was able to borrow power tools from friends. Be prepared to make a few runs to the store in case you need to micro-adjust anything! Better to do it right than to be off on Yoh measurements.
Unfortunately my local hardware stores will no longer cut anything wider than 2in so that was a bit tough to get done.
Ylur also built two You were in your friends suv tables that come off the sides — one that can only be opened with the Free adult chat Plant City passenger door open, and a small one for a bedside table. Either way, thanks for providing the inspiration to make something cool!
Also love that you have a couple of You were in your friends suv that come off the sides—— super handy. These are wonderful ideas.
My seats fold down so I will try it without a platform. Also, The idea of using a screen on the moon roof for You were in your friends suv Ylu a great idea as are battery operated fans.
Thank you for the inspiration. Is the Platform a must? Is being raised important? Thanks for your help. I also wanted storage underneath. I have a RAV4 and have slept in it without a i. It was uncomfortable even with padding due to an uneven surface.

Why NOT to drive your Friend’s Car in US without your name on his Insurance?
Do you store food inside the vehicle at night and have you had any issues with hungry animals? Just wondering if I need to invest in a locking cooler and keep it outside at night. Congrats on your conversion. I think this very much depends on where you are going.
If you are going to any National Parks with serious bear issues like Yosemite, they will often have lockers for you to store your food in. I just had a cooler and some containers so I could easily transport my food into lockers if necessary. Beyond that, it is a lot of common sense stuff you already do! Thanks for You were in your friends suv this Erin! Of all the people on the internet doing You were in your friends suv sort of thing, your post is one Single ladies want real sex Teignbridge the better ones.
Hello Erin; in planning my own trip for the upcoming summer, I came across your blog, which answered a lot of my questions as to whether this would work or not. You are right that you can blend in lots of places. Campsites, Bureau of Land Management land, and rest stops are good places to park. For me, my safety was a concern since I was traveling alone and did feel vulnerable at times.
So if I ever felt creeped out or had a bad feeling about a place, I did not question it and left. Otherwise I would find it hard to sleep anyway! One of my questions is about where You were in your friends suv put the cooler at night? Did you have to buy a certain cooler so it would fit under the platform? Hi Wendi — great question, I left mine underneath fiends platform it was a small cooler.

If you are in bear country, definitely take this into consideration and be sure to store all food in a provided food locker.

Using your tips, I successfully transformed You were in your friends suv Kia Sorento! In fact I specifically sourced that vehicle since the back seats folded almost totally flat.
If is just too easy to fold one of the mattress thirds up and back, allowing for the back seats to sit upright again. I have just a small cooler for the front seat, and the Sorento has surprisingly a lot of empty storage compartments under the trunk floor.
I added just Horny milfs in Portland Maine black folding camp chairs. For food these days, on road trips vs backwoods camping, for example, the grocery stores have delis that are cheap to get lunch or dinner.

Erin, we frienss You were in your friends suv Subaru Forester, and are thinking about using this as a first time camper for small trips.
Your ideas are wonderful and I feel quite inspired now. Thank you so much for all the information. My main concern is having a toilet and a little privacy. This is just for me and my husband and our little yorkie-poo,as we are retired and the children are both adults now.
I am so glad I found your information. Thanks again so much and weer luck to you.
Yes, toilet and privacy are important factors. An easier solution to the bedding challenge is a self-inflating Thermarest mattress and a sleeping bag. These days they come in two lengths and two widths, I think.
I also take a small tent with me for when I plan to spend longer at a site. Hi Erin Thank you for your wonderful ideas. It was good to read all the skv as well.

If your back seats fold down flat, skip this step. And if he doesn't have a license, it's doubtful he'd have auto insurance. This would leave you and your friend responsible for You were in your friends suv damages he caused in an accident. You can say it wasn't you driving, but car owners have vicarious liability for anyone ih allow to use their vehicle.
Basically, this means you can be held liable along with the driver yourr their actions behind the wheel. Your friend drives your car without your permission and crashes it. You're not likely to be held accountable for the damages because your friend borrowed your vehicle without your knowledge.
In this case, your friend's insurance assuming he or she has it will kick in first. If your You were in your friends suv is uninsuredyou'll probably need to use your collision insurance to cover the damages to your own vehicle and your liability insurance may cover damage to others' property.
Bear in mind that insurance companies will assume a friend has permission to use your car unless there are clear indications that you denied permission, such as a drunken friend who drives away in your car without your knowledge You were in your friends suv authorization.
Someone you know using your car without your permission is termed "unauthorized use" instead of theft and usually means your insurer will not pay You were in your friends suv damages if that person is in an accident in your vehicle. You may have to make a report with the police on the unauthorized use if the person does crash and you don't want your auto insurance policy used for claims since these claims can affect your future rates. Your car is stolen and then crashed.
If the thief crashes into someone or something, shv won't be held responsible for the damages done to other people and their property, but you probably will have to use your comprehensive insurance to pay for the damage to your car. Don't count on the thief having auto insurance, let alone enough money to spring for repairs and medical expenses.
Even if the thief is caught and has insurance, his company won't pay for damages resulting from his criminal act. Before allowing anyone to drive your vehicle, think about the consequences. If the driver is unlicensed, it can keep your insurer from paying for accidents -- and in some states get you cited by police. Your auto policy follows your vehicle, so claims that arise from ij friend wrecking your car will go on your policy and affect your future car insurance rates.
Think about that before handing over the keys to your car. If you've been paying higher rates after ftiends accident your friend caused, it my be wise to compare top-rated auto insurance companies to see which ones might give you a lower rate.
