During the day, you will appreciate the two fully extending drawers which can individually carry over 200kg and are suitable for most tool stacking boxes. Both drawers are lockable, and the security offered by the drawers will help to keep your passports, laptops and tools safe.

At night, the SteelPod has a level of comfort comparable to most campervans. The 3/4 width is full self-supporting and extends over the rear kombi/shuttle/multivan seats.

Shallow worktops on both sides of the bed (a feature not seen before on rear pod systems) are ideal for your morning cuppa and mobile phone. Additional storage-pockets under the worktops, can store items you might want to keep out of view, or access while in bed.

The SteelPod is a precision engineered system that is strong, robust and long-lasting. The steel is powder-coated for maximum durability, and the plywood is made from solid birch.  The rigid steel framework is secured to the van via the lashing points in the floor and can therefore be installed without drilling or damaging your vehicle and can be removed without trace.

All SteelPods come with a 5-year structural warranty and a luxury 8cm tri-fold mattress.

Compatibility
The SteelPod fits all T5 – T6.1 Transporters but with the following exceptions:

 T5 and T5.1’s

  • Not compatible with the tilting single seat in the rear. We recommend swapping the seat for a one that folds flat.

Shuttles/ Multi-vans

  • Different timbers are required for the Shuttle. These need to be sourced from SteelPods prior to installation
  • Not compatible with the third row of seats sometimes found in the Shuttle.

Window Vans

  • Different shaped worktops are preferrable (but not essential) and can be sourced from SteelPods prior to installation.

Customised Vans:

  • Access to the four lashing points in the floor are required, which are sometimes covered-up when a new floor is installed. Otherwise compatible with other floor types.
  • If irregular or thick plywood panels have been used in the rear, then worktops and side timbers may require cutting, or new timbers ordered from SteelPods. Alternatively, have new plywood panels fitted at the same time.
