Lightbulb Camping... Box style

Hello,

This may seem odd, but bare with me here. We're going camping Labor Day weekend and it's supposed to rain. It would be really convenient to not have to fool with a tent. My idea is to try to fit a twin sized air mattress into the back of my Xb by laying down the back seats, pushing the front forward and laying them all the way back; removing both the front and back seat head rests. Has anyone done this? Does anyone have any suggestions?

It works in a tC(minus the mattress.) Don't see why it wouldn't in the xB.

Many nights fighting with the now ex = me leaving and spending the night in the back of the tC with a comforter. It actually wasn't bad.

So do you use an air mattress in the Xb? I was thinking also that if itís hot, I could take some mosquito netting and open the hatch, and just attach the mosquito netting to the hatch and the cargo latches in the back

Oh, nice! I was thinking that I would have to get a twin. Coleman makes an air bed for SUV's that could be handy. You wouldn't happen to know off hand what the distance is between wheel wells in the cargo area would you? I am without my Xb today and can't measure. Thanks for the help by the way; this is going to be SO much better than pitching a tent!

Woo Hoo! I got a twin to fit into it last night. No problem. Though, I am a little worried about putting too much weight on the front seats. I have them laid all the way back. I am a big guy (270), though I think if I sleep with my torso in the back seat area and my legs on the front seat area of the mattress it should be ok. Thanks for all the help RedneckwithanxB!
