Did anyone ever implement this idea

http://www.bdub.net/Twin_Bed_26-3.jpg

Having sort of a angled setup for the two beds in the back, with removal
of the lower half of the cabinet?

Yes, Forrest Crowe did do that installation and is reportedly very happy
with it. I think he's got photos of it posted, but I don't know how to
find them.

Yes. At the bottom of your diagram it says Concept by Forest Crow.

He built them quite some time ago.
I have seen the beds in his motorhome and he is very happy with them.

You can contact him at fpcrow-AT-gmail-DOT-com
He lives in LaGrange, IN.

If you are going to the GMCMI Convention in Elkhart, IN in September,
Forest should be there.

While I have not measured that space under the bed(s) I don't really think I would like to try to "rassle" a tire/rim out of that space and carry/wheel it through the coach OR bring the certainly dirty "bad" wheel/tire in!


A prior owner installed a frame and multi-piece plywood platform across the full width of my rear "bedroom" area. I store a large rectangular plastic storage box (with cover) under that center-line space. I do not favor using scarce interior volume for storage instead of the rear outside rack for the spare tire.


Other than that, Forest Crow's modification seems to be a really great option!

There was nothing in the posting that indicated an exterior door was included.

My first GMC had the tire moved to a compartment under a rebuilt rear bed. What a way to ruin the excellent Avion interior. I would rather have the interior storage and the rear tire hanging on the back.
