DIY Pull-out bed

This is a mod for a tiny house, and probably wouldn't work in any of our RV's with standard floor plans.

But for those of you who are completely gutting and re-doing, *something* like this might be a fun hot-rodder mod.

Yes, video presentations are not his greatest talent.

But I love the design of that rolling-out support on wheels, just awesome. That looks adaptable to other uses, even without the big box behind it!

Very clever! Thanks for posting. Might be an interesting way to "store" a dining table in twin bed layout. -- Anne

Thank you! I was just thinking something like this. Or, it could be used to hide a bed as well, with an easy setup.
