DIY: Campervan build on a Mahindra Xylo


In continuation from the discussion here, I had a similar idea for a makeshift half bed with seatbelts for two adults while on the move, and a full bed for 2adults and a kid when stopped

I implemented a convertible bench - half bed- full bed on my three row Xylo. All DIY.

Here is the build timelampse .

Here is the detailed walkthrough .

The build can be swapped out for the original seating in 30 mins.

Hey Rivoncar!

Your setup looking amazing. It is amazing to see how you managed to make a full sized bed with 2 different modes inside your Xylo. I have flat folding seats in my Aria, and have almost completed our whole Weekend Campervan build, just want to finish some minor bits before revealing to my channel viewers. It isn't as impressive as yours, but works for me.

If ever you're coming towards Manali, do ping me. Would love to see your setup in person. Keep enjoying your family drives and outings. Looking forward to more videos of the fun you guys have in your Xylo.

P.S. -> One suggestion, DO NOT let your wife or kids sleep in the bed while you're driving, it is a big safety hazard in case of emergency braking, and even in case of an accident, God forbid. Always keep them belted up while the car is in motion, they can rest when the car is stationary and relax in the lounge seating with their seatbelts on, but don't compromise on their safety by allowing them to sleep while the car is being driven on the roads.
