    I'm not saying don't try it.. but maybe have a back up if you're out for a few nights.
    Yep that must be horrible blokes sleeping sideways in the back?

    I’m 190 something which is not possible but even if you can “just” fit in I would hate that!

    Just roll down the back of the front passenger seat and sleep in that... more comfortable than the 2nd row.

    Yeah I agree with this. While still pretty crappy it is much better than trying to squeeze into the back seat.

    In my 2001 GU I found that moving the front passenger seat fully forward take the head rest out & lay the backrest down fully it just squeezes in to the rear seat & lays nearly flat & was pretty comfy
    Cheers

    08 GUIV sleep in the back often with the Engel for company(winter warmth), have double draws in back with mid row(rear) seat back folded fwd with tool bag on floor behind drivers seat and packing on top of tool bag to level single mattress out. Good night sleep, could do two singles side by side with fridge outside.

    U have rear seats in (don't know how they would level out folded down) but could do similar as I do - fold both 2nd row rear set backs fwd, leave rear "dicki" seats folded up out of the way and on the floor in the back between the 3rd row "dicki" seats put a box or knock up a central infill structure(open ended for gear access) like shaped "thingo" to level out mattress. Fill in cavity behind front seats and should be good.

    Im 183 or used to be now Im 180, I have a 2.5mtr awning you can use roof racks,
    I mounted mine to a piece of 50x25 rhs enclosed both ends with brackets
    and you can enclose it with cheap awning walls,then
    I sleep off the ground in a swag on a stretcher, never sleep on a lilo even with a ground sheet you will freeze
    You could make a pull out floor with a bespoke made tarp to cover th rear doors that would keep you dry
    Only yesterday saw a pull out floor in a dual cab , at Trek Hardware but check your local Decent 4x4 supplier
    Self inflators are a great idea,, bulky but great

    Yeah I'm with Clunk. I've tried rear seats and they've never worked for me. I can sleep in front seats if I support my arms with a few pillows or whatever.
    .. speak up, my hearing isn't what it used to be. It used to be my vision and I can't see what you're saying ..

    Sleeping in a 2007 Nissan Patrol?

    Go with your initial ply board idea up top mate and or inside possibly too.
    Personally can’t sleep too well either unless quiet level flat with legs stretched out straight to function/drive again safely early the next morning.
    Depending on overnight temperatures and without in cab heating it can be horrible trying to sleep inside a tin can Esky, certainly dangerous practice in the mountain areas.
    Consider a Super Cheapo swag off the cold ground or up top away from critters if your bladder will kindly permit 6hrs kip!
