You need longer hair to have a hippie RV Van.

Mini Vans are great vehicles and can be used for many things but think I would pass on the hammock idea.

Who needs a van, if you have a pickup with a cap! Works the same if not better.

Prior to buying an all molded towable, my kid and I carcamped many, many times in the back of the truck under the canopy. She was short enough to be able to sleep on a platform bed rail-to bed rail. I slept underneath front to back.

The only time it was a problem is when I would throw open the back door to put my pants on. She would YEOWL... MOM, MOM, WHAT ARE YOU DOING? As her face turned fifty shades of red.

I told her...
Either they've seen it before and have seen better
or
They've never seen it before and don't know what it is....

Get over it.

(I'm a child of the 1960s )

Yeah Mike, just TRY to get that image out of your head!

Made a memory! And am very glad I can NOW stand up and put my pants on inside my trailer before stepping outside. So is my kid although she's now an adult.

But, I do have a 20 month grand daughter to initiate...

Ahhh, so that explains your interest in modding a minivan. Now I get it!
