    Hi Camperrobbo. I noticed the bed is across the van in a Renault Trafic, this is against the law , it has to be 6 feet long the distance between the walls in that vehicle is 6 inches short. You will have to put the bed long ways and have a pull out version to make a double bed. Also you must have at least 2 windows in the vehicle side and rear. This is the Regulations that DVLA stipulate when I converted ours which is the sister model to yours a Vauxhall Arena basicly a badged Renault Trafic. There are only 28 of these models left in the country at the moment. ours is a 1999 model with just 37,000 miles on the clock from new.

    Good Luck with yours

    Regards Ben & Linda
