Ever since ordering the roof tent we decided that the interior of the Jimny could make an excellent lounge space to kick back and chill on camping and overlanding trips.
The idea is to keep things as minimalistic as possible while offering good comfort and quick set up times.
The first stage was making a rear backrest using the headrests then once that worked successfully make something similar for the front. This would give us two spaces to lie back and read (/get drunk).
We also wanted a table for hot drinks and food prep so I made a collapsible one out of a chopping board.
Here’s the finished space! It takes 3 minutes to set up once we’re at camp.
We’re super pleased with our simple Jimny lounger set up. It’s a great space to stay dry and warm if the weather takes a turn for the worst. The extra space away from the roof tent will be awesome if one of us needs an early night.
Possible future additions
I plan to make a steering wheel table for the front… need somewhere to put a beer 🙂 Just figuring that one out and thinking about the mounting options in the roof for some sort of mini cinema.
