Camper Bath Cook Bench

The swiss army knife of camper construction.

This is a design for the interior of very small van and pop top campers and other very small living spaces like boats. While in transit it appears to be a bench of sleeping width with cushions on the bottom and back. This bench can be folded down into a two person bed. If folded up the bench exposes a shallow tub and a small camper toilet with the underside of the bench acting as a surround. If this is closed and then the back of the bench is folded forward a small hidden kitchenette is exposed with two burner stove, shallow sink and prep area. A small fan vent mounting on the ceiling serves for both stove and bath ventilation. Although the entire unit is somewhat bulkier than a conventional couch the efficiency in multiple uses makes up for the difference. When combined with some secondary seating and table space this unit is adequate to make a small van "self contained" for more remote camping without elaborate setup.

       Totally doable! Brilliant! Sounds like you are getting into the Small House Movement. You could almost do this as the back seat of a sedan as well. This would be effective for smaller vans where storage and floor space is a premium.
