Thomas is a local artist located up in Bonny Doon. He purchased his Transit van as a surf mobile and to move around his art. after dealing with a bed that was too short to sleep on and nowhere to put his go-to 9’10 board, he came to Ruhne Racing to get the bed extended and powder coated, and a custom rack to carry his boards. Oh, and he was having a baby, so ‘could you add a second row seat that will accept a baby seat’?
We sourced a factory bench seat and mounting rails to put in the back, a swivel under the passenger seat to make tending to the new addition easier. Being a short wheel base, low roof Transit there was not room for the seat and the bed big enough to sleep on so we fabricated a ‘leaf’ on the bed that folds out of the way when not in use, allowing movement around inside the van and easy deployment when the need to camp presents itself!
