There are two different mounting heights possible depending on customer preference. Measured from the floor up, the options are 36" and 45". The shorter 36" mounting height allows for increased headroom while sitting on the bed surface especially if a full sized mattress is being used or there are wall cabinets intalled in the bed area. The higher 45" mounting height allows enough room for most bicycles, small quads and other toys/gear to be stowed underneath the bed but still has enough room up on the bed to sleep comfortably or store other items. Bed panels are not interchangeable between the 2 mounting height options.
These panel beds are configurable to your own needs and preferences. Depending on the van model and overall track length, you can add panels for a larger sleeping/storage surface and/or swap out the rear panel for an extended version which takes advantage of extra space around the rear door frame area. Standard bed panels are 24" long. Rear bed panels are available in an extended version which adds nearly 6" of extra bed length at the center without sacrificing additional wall space.
Note: Although these beds can be installed directly to the van body with sheet metal screws, the thin sheet metal of the van body doesn't do a great job of holding those screws with a heavy load on them. It's possible for the screw holes to fail. Rivet nuts are the next best way to install the wall rails but they require a special tool to install and allow a stronger mounting solution to the thin body panel material. For optimum load carrying capabilities and safety, we recommend the installation of steel flat bar material which is welded to the van body at the proper height.
