PRODUCT DETAILS

Piggl BIKE-BED

A first of its kind, multi-functional bed, bench and 3-bike storage rack for your short or long wheelbase T5-T6.1 Volkswagen Transporter campervan.

  • Carry 3 bikes (with wheels on) whilst on the move.
  • Use as a bench seat inside your van.
  • Converts down into a double bed for 2 adults.
  • 3 bikes can be kept inside the van, around the bed, whilst you sleep

Piggl BIKE-BED offers you the unique ability to carry up to three adult bikes (with wheels on) inside your van whilst on the move. With bikes removed, Piggl BIKE-BED can be used as a bench seat then quickly slides down on smooth running rails into a double bed and allows you to place, as near as damn it, a full-size double mattress on top for the best nights sleep you've ever had in your campervan.

INCLUDED WITH Piggl BIKE-BED:

  • Floor mounted frame 
  • Double bed which converts easily from bench seat/ bike rack
  • Locking bed runners with smooth-slide action
  • Two deep storage drawers with sliding runners and 60kg load capacity each
  • Lashing points for securing up to 3 bikes
  • All fixings and fittings to assemble and fit the unit into your van
  • Detailed assembly and fitting instructions
  • Free Delivery of Piggl Mattress Cushions if purchased with Piggl BIKE-BED (£40 delivery charge thereafter).

1. The Bike Rack...

Say goodbye to roof racks, tailgate racks or dismantled bikes filling up your van! In travel mode Piggl BIKE-BED has a bench seat facing into the van, plus a second bench seat/shelf facing the tailgate. This is where Piggl BIKE-BED really comes into its own; the multi-functional front bench seat has three slots in. Simply place a rear wheel of each bike into a slot and use a strap (not provided) to secure the wheels to the bench using the integrated lashing points. In only a couple of minutes three bikes are securely strapped into place for transport without you needing to remove any wheels! How great is that?!

2. A bench seat inside your van...

When you remove the bikes both the front facing and rear facing bench seats can be used as comfortable seating inside the van or as storage shelves. Simply add cushions and you have a comfortable sofa to chill out on - Check out our Piggl Mattress Cushions!

3. Loads of Storage...

Underneath Piggl BIKE-BED are two deep drawers (interior size: 76 x 59 x 31cm) providing ample storage space. Each drawer has a load capacity of up to 60kg at full extension allowing you to pack them to the brim, plus sliding runners ensure a smooth opening and closing action.

The first drawer is located underneath the bike rack/ seat inside your van. The second drawer is under the rear seat/shelf of Piggl BIKE-BED and opens out the back of your van. Why not add a Piggl PANEL to convert the extended rear drawer into an outdoor cooking platform?

4. Converting into a double bed...

Piggl BIKE-BED sits on a pair of heavy duty, locking runners. To convert into a double bed for the night simply push down on the two red handles to unlock the runners and the four hinged bed panels will unfold flat. Once flat, simply slot in the two legs provided to support the front. Then place your mattress of choice and bedding on top and cosy in for a comfortable night’s sleep.

Piggl BIKE-BED Mattress Cushions are custom made to fit Piggl BIKE-BED and provide comfortable sofa cushions then transform into a supportive mattress to sleep on.

To fold Piggl BIKE-BED away simply remove the mattress and bedding, pull the strap to raise up the middle two sections of the bed then push the bed back from the front. The bed will slide back easily on the runners in a smooth action. Ensure the runners lock back into place. It’s that simple!

Piggl TOWEL prevents mud and water drips on your Piggl BIKE-BED Piggl PANEL an optional exra purchase for Piggl BIKE-BED 

    Install + Piggl BIKE-BED. For a small additional charge we will assemble your Piggl BIKE-BED and have it ready for you to collect from us in Chester in your prepared Transporter.

    Install is available from us in Chester (CH3) only. We will contact you to agree a suitable date and time. Install requires you to have prepared your Transporter with exposed floor mounting points ready for us to install your ready-built Piggl BIKE-BED. 

    Installation can be added as an optional extra by selecting 'Pay in Full + Install in Chester' from the payment options drop-down menu above.

    Piggl BIKE-BED is designed to fit inside all SWB or LWB T5 or T6 Volkswagen Transporter vans (including T5.1 and T6.1) and is installed using the exposed, existing floor mounting points. You will need to locate and expose three of the mounting points (which may be under your van's sub-floor) prior to installation. The floor of the van needs to be flat - it cannot be fitted to the bare metal ribs of the van floor as this will cause the frame to bend and be unsupported. 

    Floor mounting points

    Included with Piggl BIKE-BED are all the bolts and washers needed to securely install the unit to your van's floor. The frame can be unbolted, and the entire unit can be removed from your van if required, but we don't receommend doing this often as you will weaken the screw fixings. 

    KOMBI SEATS: Piggl BIKE-BED can be fitted into a SWB or LWB Transporter with Kombi seats in place BUT it cannot then be used as a bike rack and the bed cannot be collapsed flat as the kombi seats are in the way. You need to remove the Kombi seats to use Piggl BIKE-BED correctly. Both can be bolted in and out.

    The Kombi seat floor brackets in a SWB or LWB Transporter prevent the front drawer in Piggl BIKE-BED from opening. If you wish to keep the brackets in your floor you will need our Kombi KIT which fits seamlessly to the base of the frame and raises it up so that the drawer can open over the floor brackets.

    VW SHUTTLE: Whilst we have had customers fit Piggl BIKE-BED into their Shuttle, it is not designed to fit into a VW Shuttle as the interior panels will interfere with the fit of the bed. If you want to fit Piggl BIKE-BED into a VW Shuttle, then you will need some skills and be prepared to cut into or remove the wall panels, some of the floor and the rear tailgate panel as these will prevent the bed from being fitted.

    In a LWB Shuttle, the floor mounting point for the bed may be located in the floor underneath the wall panels (in front of the rear wheel arch). Piggl cannot accept responsibility for any parts broken or damaged in fitting Piggl BIKE-BED into a VW Shuttle and the responsibility lies soley with the buyer as Piggl BIKE-BED has not been designed for this purpose. 

    Add Kombi Kit to your Piggl BIKE-BED or Piggl CAMPERVAN order 

    Piggl BIKE-BED is designed to store up to three adult bikes whilst on the move. Each slot is 60mm wide and bike wheels up to 29 inches and 2.4 inch wide should fit.

    • 'Fat-bike' tyres will not fit into the slots.
    • Road bikes should be placed with the front wheel in the slot as the derailleur will normally prevent the rear wheel fitting. Not all road bikes are suitable for use in Piggl BIKE-BED due to the variable geometry of the frames. Please contact us to discuss your road bike fit prior to purchase.
    • Piggl BIKE-BED is also suitable to place a children's bike into the slot, but you may wish to place some padding or support in the hole around the tyre to prevent the bike moving sideways in the slot whilst driving.
    • If you have large frame, wide handle bars or require wider bike slots please feel free to contact us to discuss your bike fit or a custom slot size before placing your order. Due the variable geometry of bike frames we cannot guarantee that all bikes will fit. 

    If your mountain bike has wider tyres (up to 29er and 2.6") then you can purchase Piggl BIKE-BED WIDE-SLOT which is exactly the same Piggl BIKE-BED, but with two wider bike slots in to transport:

    • 2 x Mountain bikes up to 29er with 2.6" wide wheels.
    • 1 x Mountain bike up to 29er with 2.4" wide wheels.

    NOTE: The bike rack is just designed to transport the bikes inside your van whilst on the move. Bikes need to be removed to collapse the bed; three bikes can be stored in the gap alongside and in front of the bed, behind the driver's seat, with a wheel removed. One bike will fit alongside the bed without removing any wheels. Alternatively, lock up securely in an awning or other secure location at a campsite.

    If your mountain bike has wider tyres (up to 29er and 2.6") then you can purchase Piggl BIKE-BED WIDE-SLOT which is exactly the same Piggl BIKE-BED, but with two wider bike slots in to transport:

    • 2 x Mountain bikes up to 29er with 2.6" wide wheels.
    • 1 x Mountain bike up to 29er with 2.4" wide wheels.

    The two wider bike slots are the central slot and the driver's side slot. The nearside slot in unable to be enlarged as it will interfere with the drawer underneath. 

    Prevent mud and water drips on your Piggl BIKE-BED by using our microfibre Piggl TOWEL as an absorbent and protective barrier. Simply lay over the top of Piggl BIKE-BED and insert your bike wheels into the bike slots as normal. The towel will absorb drips from your bikes and can then be machine washed ready for the next use.

    Piggl BIKE-BED Mattress Cushions are are custom made to follow the exact shape of Piggl BIKE-BED and we have carefully selected dual-density foam to provide comfortable sofa cushions to sit on and a supportive mattress to sleep on. The four cushions form a slouch-style sofa when Piggl BIKE-BED is in its upright position, then transform into a mattress when converted down into a bed.

       

    We believe in quality and durability and Piggl BIKE-BED Mattress Cushions are made to last - there are no cheap foam imports here! Each mattress is handmade to order by highly experienced upholsterers located in the UK. 

    All four cushions can be stored on the back shelf of Piggl BIKE-BED when the bike rack is in use. 

       

    As an alternative,you can place an inflatable, double mattress on top of the bed to sleep on. Find our suggested mattress in the accessories section of our website.

    Piggl BIKE-BED is CNC machined from 18mm thick, black phenolic resin faced birch plywood giving a robust and hardwearing surface. All exposed edges are sealed with linseed oil to prevent moisture ingress. We purchase our Hexa plywood from a number of suppliers therefore there may be some variation in pattern or finish.

    Piggl BIKE-BED is installed using the exposed existing floor mounting points in your van and all fixings are provided. Both drawers have high quality runners with a robust, locking drawer catch.
