You mean there's not enough info here in my entire thread?
What kind of help are you looking for?

Borrow some tools probably  Tongue
So where does this bit go then ?

looks just what we need, especially the extra floor space!
one  question, how do you measure the cooker box so it fits on the sliding runners?
cheers, Rob.....

It's covered with an aluminium panel when the drawer is first opened.

This panel becomes a large windbreak by slotting in behind the gas hob, because there’s not much energy in the gas flame and any wind would soon blow the heat away. Since this shot I've rounded off the corners of the panel.

See the toast maker also in this photo - great little piece of gear, that makes brill toast!

The crockery section has a hinged lid - I found this much more convenient than a fixed cover. Since these photos were taken I have soft lined the space under the bowl and spare gas cylinders are now stored there. The crockery sits tight in its own space. No rattles sport!

The windbreak also serves as a flat cover over the crockery section that hot plates can be put on safely. The burner's sitting on it in this photo:

Putting-down surfaces are scarce in a mini camper, so I've extended the drawer by adding two more swing-up flaps, like so:

And here's a shot showing the underside of the drawer and flaps.You can see how they swing up and lock into place:

I was surprised that there was room for the rear flap on the side of the drawer without it fouling anything as it closed - should have made it bigger.

Bed details next.

Hi Gravity,

Firstly thank you for showing all this work in such detail and it has helped me decide on which set up I want. Which is now yours?

Are you member of the Facebook group Berlingo and Peugeot Parent camper Group, its just that your bed layout is the same as a plan over there?

The floating hinge you use, was that specifically to make separating/joining elements easier/lighter or did it have other functions. I do note you said good for keeping mattress elements secure. The reason I ask as most designs don't have that function.

Also unless I missed it what fridge did you have and where did you place it.
