They say never to do that because you won't have a seat belt. But, yes, I've slept on the corner bed while DH was driving. Very bouncy, so not really conducive to a deep sleep. Never tried the overhead as we use that for storage mostly.

When the kids were growing up, we had a conversion van with a full bed in the back. We'd leave OKC at 9 or 10 pm and nearly be in Florida before they woke up the next morning!

I too slept many a mile in the back window of the parents 60's ford. Liked it better than the floorboard and sisters actually got the rear seat!

SWMBO has climbed into the loft and napped while traveling several times. She claims it's a lot better up there than it used to be in the bedroom of the old pusher, because you don't feel sway up there. I haven't been up there while she's driving - SWMBO is a terrible driver, and I want to be awake when I meet my maker!

The caveat is that the loft is a catchall for supplies. We've learned to put everything in plastic boxes to make it easier to clear the bunk for napping.

Earlier post DebbieMH mentioned that we're supposed to be strapped in with seat belts... "Gosh, I didn't know that officer-thanks for telling me"
