    Hi Peter and welcome.

    trial and error i'm afraid.

    there may be a slatted slide/pull out section, hidden between the seats, which fits between the seat bases and then rearrange the seat cushions to fit......thats the trial and error bit.

    it will always be a compromise and gaps are unavoidable...just try to position the gaps away from hips and shoulders when laid down.

    Hi Peter
    I have no personal experience of that model, but I did own a Besacarr with an end lounge if that is what yours is like, under the end section ther was a pull out rack to fill in the middle section then you placed the seat cusions to make the bed, hope this helps. Peter :thumb:

    Hi Peter

    Our Bessacar has an L shaped lounge and as pappajohn has said, there is a pull out slatted piece under the back seat. There's a little thing that looks like a miniature wooden pelmet on the front of the locker surround, this pulls out and rests on the low cupboard under the window (open thing like a magazine rack in our van) so makes a 4'6" double sleeping across the van. We haven't yet found a comfy way of arranging the cushions at all, so we sleep in the overcab. If you need to use the rear bed, or we did, I'd buy a Duvalay (or similar) mattress topper, which could be stashed on the overcab during the day or travelling and chucked on top of the seat cushions, complete with its fitted sheet, when we retired.

    BUT - Swift are most certainly still in business - try a phone call and see if they can supply the Users Manual ?
