Thoughts about storage and bed frame


I belive in the KISS principle (Keep It Simple Stupid). Simplicity is Genius sometimes. Instead of using 2x4 woodframes, I will try to use storage compartments to make the base of the bed.

One of my role models is Laren Corie,

Laren uses a couple of big Walmart trunks, for his bed foundation. He then uses plywood which is only 1/8" luan. I think he lays this plywood on his trunks. On top of this I think he uses an air madress. He sleeps diagonal in the back of his AstroSafari van.
The size of his trunks are 42"x18"x13", thats equivalen to 105x45x32,5cm

So I started to look for some trunks also: This is what I found at Jula:
