Eurovan Weekender rear child cot Posted: Tue Jul 11, 2017 8:18 am     Views: 36      Rating: Not rated

Inspired by the cot that Needlenoddlenoo put together on his camper build, I decided to give it a try and set one up for my 5 year old. She's a small fry. I set mine up primarily using 1inch sch40 pvc except for the longest spans, in which I used 1 1/2 inch. The 1 1/2 inch conveniently slips tightly over 1 inch couplings. I boneheaded one of my cuts, so you can see I had to unnecessarily couple a bit of 1 1/2 inch pipe together on the rear long span. The inner demensions are 18 x 50. That should be plenty for her and some room to grow. I could have brought it out towards the rear door another inch, but the rear feet sit nicely on the rear board where it currently is. Here is the composition of the structure.

(1) 1 1/2" x 10' sch40 pvc pipe
-A seat side span length - 50 1/2"
-B tailgate side span length - 43 1/2"

(2) 1" x 10' sch40 pvc pipe
-C (4) vertical legs under side windows- 16"
-D (2) horizontal leg supports - 11"
-E (2) vertical rear legs - 17"
-F (2) longer head/foot pipe - 11"
-G (2) shorter head/foot pipe - 5 1/4"
-H (6) 1" T's

(10) 1" elbows

(1) coupler connectors - 2"
