I slept in my previous car a few times, I used a thick piece of foam which covered the whole of the back. It was ok, comfortable enough, but this arrangement is going to be better. The sunlounger fits in perfectly, and with it's original mattress plus the foam folded in half it's going to be super comfortable. The Ford Focus Estate ticks all the boxes for me.
Lying stretched out on my back, which is my preferred sleeping position. Privacy glass means I can see out and nobody can see in.
I am 5ft 5ins, plenty of room for me.
I have plastic boxes for storage of bits and bobs. Small camping stove, food, pots and pans etc. Change of clothes, and wash gear. Plastic bowl and water. At the bottom end there will be space for the tent, small table and a chair, and a pee bucket. I have a portapotti if I need it.
I have made a curtain to go across the front. There isn't enough headroom to sit on the bed, but if I need to sit in because it's raining, I can move the pillows across to the side to make it comfortable and sit on the carpeted floor.
I won't be rushing off anywhere soon because everyone else will be on the move when the restrictions are lifted. I will give it a month or so for things to calm down, then I will choose my camp sites carefully. There is no need for me to interact with anyone, except booking in when I arrive. If the toilet blocks are not open that's ok, I will be self sufficient. I have the option of putting the tent up alongside the car and using that for washing and toilet facilities. If the toilet blocks are open it will be a quick poop in the morning and out again, taking with me a seat cover, rubber gloves and soap.
So, that is the plan. I don't feel like I want to use hotels, or hostels, don't want to go to busy places, and will look for small sites with well spaced out pitches, where I can walk from. When it's time to go away I will fill the car up with petrol, and shop at Aldi for food to take with me. I am well used to peeing behind a hedge if I need to during the journey, otherwise no need to stop till I get to the site.
Now I have that sorted I don't feel so trapped. I would hate to think I cannot go anywhere ever again, my freedom has always meant a lot to me. This set up makes me feel better, it is there when I need it.
Have a nice weekend. We have rain today, a welcome break from the searing heat. Toodle pip. ilona
