Cheap plastic folding table in the trunk area to make the hump up to seats more flat?

I’ve always thought about doing that. Every time I slept in the 4runner I blew up a cheap twin air mattress though and the hump couldn’t be felt.

Nice set up. I live in SoCal, where do they require campfires off the ground/ Is this new? It's almost impossible to find any areas that allow campfires these days. Thanks

I did it for a week and three days, from Minneapolis to Flagstaff and back.
I lucked out and the nights were cool enough to just use window netting.(can find it on amazon)
I used a foam mattress in the back to sleep on, cooler for small amounts of food. I did use hotels 4 of the nights mostly to use the shower.

things I wish I brought:
-gas cans to stay more remote
-maybe a grill but food can be planned were you don't need to cook
-folding chair, better to sit outside than in the runner
-some company lol

I’m 5’11 and wouldn’t want to be any taller sleeping in it without some for of adjustment for more space like pulling the rear seat bottoms out.

With air pads, the hump isn’t perceived. We use misc clothing to level out feet out under the thermarest pads but even without it you’re fine.

With good down bags and air pads it’s quite comfortable.

I think I bought it for Anza Borrego. They might be the only one with this restriction, but I've used it in places all along the 395, Mojave, BLM land and Death Valley.

Nice firepit, is it durable? It seems to be lightweight, but will it last?

Newbie Questions

As a follow-up to this post, I have a couple questions myself. I don't plan to go on crazy road trips (at least not yet) so I don't want to spend hundreds on gear, take out the back seats, or build a platform. I'm trying to keep it simple for 2-3 night excursions.

1. I live in Florida and don't want to be relegated to car camping in December only. Does anyone have a good portable AC unit they recommend? I would be staying at campsites, so if it is corded that would be fine.

2. I have been contemplating buying one of those Corduroy convertible bean bags for sleeping. Thoughts? I am kind of a wimp, lots of previous injuries, so I can't just do a pad or cot. I was wondering if the full or queen size would fit and fill in the spaces since it's a flexible bean bag?

3. How to keep bugs out! I would love to have a way to put the back window halfway down but with some sort of screen on it. Any good DIYs? Someone told me once you can buy something to insert into the window and then you can roll the window up until it is wedged in, but for the life of me I can't find one.

TIA!!!!

Shades??

Someone on here was selling a kit to roll the rear window up and down from a rear switch. It is nice to be able to lock/unlock the doors and move the rear window without crawling up front.
Raingler attic to throw things up and hang a light on. I did upgrade to the rago for storing recovery gear, but place the soft Raingler under the rago when camping for quick access at night.
Any chance you have the link for the rear net? I looked but couldn't find any other post from you on the thread mentioning it.

Well did plenty of it stock. Removed the 60 split seat bottom. Cut up iso mats and taped them into layers to form a pad to take up the hump (ugly but functional and cushy). Rubbermaid storage container in the footwell to give me some extra room 6’5”. Pics are floating around somewhere on here.

I recently finished my 2nd row delete cargo platform. Will prob just be using my old iso mat with a little inflatable pad till find myself a mattress of my liking.

I have bug screen nets from amazon that slip over the door tops so you can roll the windows down.

As far as staying cool for the summer... I should prob get a portable fan. I’ll admit I’ve just toughed it out. Sleep with just some drawers on and a blanket by my side if needed. Knock a few cold snacks back before bed to help drop the give a **** factor.

Need to get the window and hatch release mod going, a battery powered fan, and some limo tint/curtains. Then I’ll really be luxurious.

So I built a platform to level the rear out and keep it in al l the time. When we go camping I have an air mattress with some sheets and blankets I use in the rear and I have some battery powered fans I can clip onto my Rago Panels. I also have a jackery for any power needs at night phones tablets heating blankets etc. I had some sheets on bungies for privacy but have since purchased the full set of WeatherTech inserts for the windows. I also got some vent inserts to keep the windows open at night I’ll post some pics when I get those.

Looks awesome! What paint or material did you use for the finish?

Looks like a really clean install. Did you apply carpet on top of the platform?

Yes i used a commercial black carpet i cut to fit around the platform and stapled it down underneath, then some cloth to sorta seal off the gap facing out.
