    Micra mini rv conversion?

    Curious if anyone has turned their micra, even temporarily, into a small rv or anything similar for one person?

    I am heading on a cross canada trip next summer. I was planning on doing it by motorcycle but I have done that before so I thought perhaps I would take the front passenger seat out of micra s and install a sleeping station front to back. modify the rest in some configuration and perhaps add some extra battery power.

    Looking for any and all comment/ suggestions.

    Thanks

    Hi I have in fact done this and it was really comfortable and spacious! I'm away from home and only have a couple of bad pictures but at least you know its possible...

    There was room for me to lie out flat and if I was taller, I could remove the large backrest/seat cushion. There was no need to take the front seat out for me - just moved it right forward and tilted forward. I'm not sure if all micras have this but with mine I simply folded the backs of the rear seats down and removed the headrests so they sat more flush. Then I built a small wooden frame that sat in the rear left passenger foot-well and placed a few large seat cushions on the floor of the boot, this then allowed me to lay the large cushions you can see in the pictures flat across the top resulting a comfortable flat bed! The sunshades you can see in the pictures worked great, even in full sunlight it was pretty dark inside and they were basically just cut to size such that they'd just wedge in when I closed the door. For driving the cushions just stacked up and the rear right passenger seat could even come back up!

    Sorry I can't get any more details

    Amazing! Thanks for the pics/ info, Rupert.

    I was just coming to this thread to say "I haven't heard of any Micra owners who have done this yet".

    FundyFan - if you do it, take pics and post them here.
