2013 Toyota RAV4 LE Sleeping Platform

This is a sleeping platform build that allows you to have easy access to the spare wheel compartment as well as ability to keep trunk part of the platform when rear seats are up.

Note: The following measurements are how the platform in the video is set up. There is without a doubt room for improvement to make the legs and support more symmetrical to the plywood as well more sturdy.

You will need:

  • 3/4 plywood cut into 3 pieces:
    40″x 8″ Headboard
    40″x 30″ Middle Part
    40″ x 33″ Trunk Part

  • 1x 1″ x 8″ board cut 40″ Middle Part front “legs”
