    80s With Canoes

    I didn’t get a picture of the canoe on the 80, but it hauled some friends, canoe, and myself about 250 miles to the Kings river in Arkansas. We floated 35 miles last weekend.

    Honest opinions...Exped megamat

    I have two of the Megamats I purchased about 6 years ago, they’ve probably been slept on 150-200 nights. I’ve taken them down many rivers via canoe, beat them to hell sleeping on gravel bars and they are still as comfortable as when I first purchased them. When I purchased mine each one came...

    @TWILLY, I just drilled holes in the exterior part of the clamp. I then used the mounting bolts ARB sends. I might be mistaken, but I think @LandCruiserPhil has different gutter clamps than the two of us. Edit, I just saw Phil’s clamps and they appear to be the same.

    3/4 currently. I haven’t done anything with the plywood because I’m still deciding if this is my long term solution. I would like to use something lighter in a composite form, but I haven’t figured out what to use.

    Unseasonably warm last night so I went to a nearby lake for the night. I took some more pictures of my platform bed. It’s still a work in progress as I’m working out the details.

    I agree with Phil. The benefit of the cut roof isn’t for access to the bed, but to allow more living space in inclement weather.

    Lack of overhead space mainly. Like I said it’s doable, but I don’t think you’ll be happy with it as a long term solution. If you don’t want to cut your roof just use a ladder as Phil does. If the sunroof hole was in the rear of the vehicle then it would be an awesome way to access the bed.

    I only had my top for a day before I cut the roof. Before I cut the roof I tried the sunroof access for the novelty of it, it’s doable, but not very practical in my opinion. My wife laughed at me while I crawled in there.

    I’ve got led strip lights installed. The issue is covering the hole in the headliner where the dome light/sunroof control, hence the idea of a visor shelf to cover it up.

    I’m thinking of building an overhead shelf that a light could be attached to.

    I agree about the gap between the roof and the campteq not being an issue aesthetically wise. The important part is making the headliner to the roof cut look good. The only reason I didn’t cut 3/4 was because I didn’t want to deal with the extra fabric needed to cover in the middle of the...

    My mattress is also 3” thick foam and I can fit all of my bedding. 4” mattress will be to thick to fit everything plus roof insulation.

    The bed platform is left up to you. Eric gave me a slatted bed platform and that is what Phil is currently using. Since I cut my roof I knew I wanted a platform that I could raise up out of the way and stand inside. I made a platform out of plywood into two sections. The main platform is 60in...
