VW Bus Rear Tents & Bed Platforms Price: $875 base
Now is the time to start saving your hard earned $ to order one of our Rear Tent and Bed Platform packages so you can be ready for Spring. These are the best bang for the buck to seriously change your camping experience forever.
Our Rear Tents and Rear Bed Platforms make camping more comfortable and fun. They are easy to set up. Open the rear hatch, set up the Rear Bed Platform and slip the Rear Tent over the opened the rear hatch and under the Bed Platform. Adjust the Tent's perimeter magnets to the proper positions and put the mattress in place - you're now ready to go. All in less than 5 minutes.
Once it's bedtime, you can lay in bed with more head and elbow room, look at the stars or a watch a meteor shower, while enjoying the interior environment. The additional space greatly reduces the claustrophobic feeling if you sleep "head-to-the-rear" of the bus or provides additional foot space for taller people if sleeping the other direction. They're also great if you have children or pets.
The Rear Tents are custom handcrafted individually in Oregon using durable, heavy duty 1000 denier Cordura. Several choices of configuration and colors are available. All models have a standard vinyl moonroof. Windows can be either vinyl or screened, or a combination of both. The Tent slips over the open rear hatch and is magnetically attached to the rear of the bus with material-covered industrial strength ceramic magnets so no paint is scratched.
Your choice of a Steel-framed Platform with a Stained Wooden Deck or our new All- Aluminum Bed Platform. The Tent folds flat for storage.
Both models of Bed Platforms work in concert with our full line of Rear Tents. Aluminum diagonal supports hook to rear hatch hinges and detach from the powder-coated steel or aluminum Bed Platform frame via quick release hitch pins for quick setup and takedown and for storage. The Platform bears against the rear of the bus and is cushioned with a solid Buna-N rubber bumper to protect the bus paint. The Platforms will easily support over 200 lbs. They each extend the available sleeping area length by 24” and increases the sleeping area width to a full 48” - that's an additional 8 square feet of weight-bearing, useable space! The platform is sturdy and very stable.
The Platform can also be used as an exterior table when the Rear Tent is not installed.
Our Rear Tents and the Bed Extension fit buses from LATE 64 Splitties thru to the 79 Baywindows.
