With no house Renovating this week I took the opportunity to make some modifications to my ute for camping and also carrying a bike inside. I had an idea to build a false floor to store things under and make a bed on top of the false floor. Previously I had to stack things outside on the ground to make the bed.
First I made the frame and screwed some ply on to it.
After bolting my new construction in the back of my ute so it can easily be removed. I have a place for my bike, the fridge in the rear corner and plenty of room underneath my false floor for storage.
I soon realise it is going to be difficult to get onto the bed with the bike and the fridge in place so I decide to build a ladder on the drivers side of the tray which will also be useful when putting things on the roof rack as well. And I have even painted it white since this photo was taken.Pretty groovy welding helmet!
I do have a shot with the ladder painted white. I will give it a run this weekend to see how it all works.
