Default Shaggin Wagon, 98SW raised floor (rear seat delete)

I use my wagon to make short trips. Hotels are so expensive so I decided
to mod my 98 wagon for car camping. I took the rear seat out and did
some fabricating.

I have many of the parts digitized so I hope to be able to provide some full
scale patterns and even CNC cut parts if there is any interest.













Spent 2 nights in it over the weekend. Quite comfy.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I like the amplifier mount.
It's nice how the area behind the wheel wells becomes additional storage space.

Very well done.

Fantastic! I do a lot of night and sometimes I get tired in my SL1 so I pull down the back seats and sleep with half my body in the trunk and the other half in the back seats, but that doesn't come nearly is awesome as this. I agree, hotels are ridiculous in price. Where do you park when you sleep?

Ok. Without knowing what it is, the underside CNC routing makes it look like an "exotic" material in the picture and/or OEM.

Amazing,

I got some CAD work done for a future kit or some plans/templates. If someone wanted, I could convert the whole thing into a sub box that would fit in the sedans. What kind of volume in sq-ft do you need for a couple of beefy 12" subs? I plan to make some other refinements that will be easy now that I have a basic model. I am open to suggestions but also trying to keep it fairly simple.



Thanks for all the positive comments, everybody. Here's a shot of the outside with tinted windows as suggested.

I am selling this conversion for $350. (sold the wagon)
Shipping will be ~$100 (probably will use Greyhound freight).

Delivery possibility. Act fast!
I am driving from Portland, OR to Denver via SLC tomorrow
& Thursday so willing to deliver along I-84, I-80 route.
Can also deliver in Portland area.

Conversion Includes:
  • box/frame that replaces rear seat.
  • sub and amp (deduct $75 if you don't want those)
  • Rear support frame. maintains access to spare.
  • 3 lift up covers with carpet.
  • mounting brackets & screws

You will need to remove your rear seat and the large plastic molding underneath. The rear frame and box are attached with 6 screws. It drops right in and locates on the body contours. It took me 1/2 hour remove the components and replace the factory seats. Super easy to install.

Please send a PM if interested.

Sorry to resurrect an old post but did anyone ever obtain the plans for this setup. I messaged hein in attempts to get my hands on them but it appears as though he is no longer involved here at saturnfans (or he doesn't want to talk to me).

Thanks in advance for the help
