How to Convert Roadtrek Seats Into a Bed

by Kimberly Turtenwald

Recreational vehicles allow travelers to move from place to place with all of the comforts of home. Some people tow trailers behind their vehicles, while others prefer to use a single-unit motorhome. However, some people want something smaller, yet they do not want to tow. A Roadtrek offers the comforts of a recreational vehicle and the convenience of a single unit, while maintaining a small size. These vehicles are laid out like a van in the front section while driving, but at night the front seats can be transformed into beds.

1

Move both armrests of the captain's chair into the upright position.

2

Turn the seat 270 degrees so that the back of the chair is toward the center aisle of the Roadtrek.

3

Remove the back of the lounge seat. Lay the folding mattress with the hard side down between the two seats.

4

Open the folding mattress and arrange it over the two seats. Make the bed with the bedding of your choice.

5

Reverse the steps in order to convert the bed back to captain's chairs.
