Maximal sleeping area?
« on: October 13, 2021, 08:17:42 AM »
Hello,

Can you please tell me,

What is the dimension of the flat floor? (including the "open air" area, from the rear seat edge, to the back of the front seat).

With the front seat in the max position forward in the rails,(front seat backrest inclined forward) closer to the dashboard, from the edge of the interior trunk.

PS: Anyone remove from the rail screws the front seat, and position it even closer to the dashboard, seating area of the front seat tucked under the dashboard, if is a physical possibility? (for Jazz GD model, 2003 is ok to do this trick).
The total length with this configuration, for sleeping?

PS: Mk4 version interior space is smaller than MK3?

Any pictures?

Thank you.

About 5' 7" with the front passenger seat and back rest as far forward as it will go without major surgery.  Many moons ago when I was a youngster I adapted my Vauxhall Chevette hatchback as a camper along the lines you are suggesting.
 I'm 6' 2" and it sort of worked so the front passenger seat must have gone further forward as the Chevette was 5cm shorter than the Jazz.  I soon discovered though that not being able to black out the Chevette was a major handicap.

My mate had a Chevanne, it would have made a lovely camper.

My wife had a Vauxhall Chevette Estate (known in NZ as a "station wagon"). Is this known in England as the Chevanne or was that another variant?

Stay on the right side of the road (I mean here, mainland Europe, the RIGHT side).

As the OP hasn't commented yet there is time to reminisce.  In UK the Vauxhall Chevette was sold as a 3 door hatchback, a 3 door estate and a 2 or 4 door saloon.  None were called the Chevanne but I believe they were mechanically similar to the Opel Kadett sold in Germany and probably elsewhere.

The Chevanne was branded as a Bedford.

The Chevanne was branded as a Bedford.

Vauxhall Motor subsidiary Bedford Vehicles introduced a small commercial vehicles in 1976 based on the Vauxhall Chevette called the Bedford Chevanne.    . . . . . . . according to Google.
