Yes, we can! Like all of our other products, the Frontier Futon is available as an easily assembled DIY kit that will arrive to you in two different boxes. Shipping is included in the price for all customers in the lower 48 of the USA!

Like our other products, shipping a fully assembled Frontier Futon is only available to customers willing to pay very high freight shipping charges. It’s unlikely you will want to do this, but if you insist please contact us and we can discuss pricing.

For customers in Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, or other countries please contact us to get a custom shipping quote for your location.

What mattress do you recommend for the Frontier Futon?

Camp N Car offers a custom-designed mattress that works perfectly with the Frontier Futon at an additional $750. This mattress is sectioned off to allow it to seamlessly transition between couch and bed mode. It is also secured to the Frontier Futon with a bungee cord.

Choose between a medium-firm and extra firm foam for your mattress.

This mattress has a twill cotton cover and is available in the following colors: black, navy blue, burgundy red, brown, and green.

You are also welcome to create or find your own mattress! Just keep in mind the dimensions of the Frontier Futon when choosing your own mattress.

How much does the Frontier Futon weigh?

The Frontier Futon weighs about 120 pounds in the base frame, with the mattress only adding a few more pounds on top of that. It is surprisingly light considering how heavy-duty and well built it is!

Can the Frontier Futon be used in tiny homes or other spaces than vans?

Absolutely! The Frontier Futon is a great choice for use in a wide variety of spaces, whether it’s in a cargo van, pickup truck, or tiny house. As long as you have a space that can fit the Frontier Futon there’s no reason not to use it!

I need help installing the Frontier Futon, can you assist me?

We would love to help you install the Frontier Futon! For all customers picking their unit up from our shop in Port Townsend, Washington we would be happy to offer a free load in of your Frontier Futon. If you require a more extensive installation process, we will need to charge our hourly shop rate. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about installation assistance of the Frontier Futon!

Why does the Frontier Futon cost this much?

Everything we make is designed with a great deal of thorough engineering and care using advanced software and expensive machinery. From there we pick top quality and sustainable materials and hand craft everything here in Washington State to an extremely high standard. Additionally, our employees are highly skilled craftspeople who are paid living wages and are treated like our family.

The reality of doing all of this means we can’t offer goods that are as cheap as stuff you can buy from overseas manufactures. We are determined to continue being a company that manufactures solely in the United States and supports our local economy. Once you make your purchase you will see the quality and customer care make it all worthwhile!

Can you ship out of the United States? How about Alaska or Hawaii?

Yes, we can! For customers in Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, or other countries please contact us to get a custom shipping quote for your location.

What is the weight capacity of the Frontier Futon?

The Frontier Futon is a heavy-duty piece of furniture and can handle a lot of weight! We have thoroughly torture-tested it with lots of people and weight and haven’t been able to break it, but our recommended weight capacity for the Frontier Futon is 1000 pounds.

Keep in mind that the heavy-duty drawer slides that deploy the Frontier Futon into bed mode are rated for 500 pounds, but the deploying support legs add a substantial amount of weight capacity to the overhanging bed area. If you are not using the support legs then you will not want to exceed 500 pounds of weight on the overhanging bed area.

Are you able to share the plans for the Frontier Futon with me?

We do not offer the schematics, plans, or CNC files for any of our products, including the Frontier Futon.

Final Considerations

The Frontier Futon is the game-changing piece of transforming furniture for a van that will take your tiny home on wheels to the next level. The bed works great for people of all heights and sizes and the couch is perfect for having guests over in your vanlife.

The Frontier Futon is one of the best pieces of modular furniture for vanlife we’ve created yet! This transforming couch/bed is for you if you are tall, enjoy hosting guests, or can’t decide between a couch and a bed in a van.

And don’t worry if you need us to we can assemble it for you at our van conversion shop in Washington!

    I’ll admit I was a little hesitant to spend the money on the Frontier Futon for my Ford Transit camper build but now that I’ve gotten everything set up and have used it for a couple of short camping trips all I can say is WOW, I am glad I bought it! Using the Frontier Futon is so easy and it is so nice to have a comfortable place to sleep and sit all in one furniture piece. I’m camping in a shorter wheelbase Transit so there wasn’t a lot of space for a seating area and I needed a lengthwise bed since my husband is 6′ 3″ and we didn’t want to install flares. The Frontier Futon has been the perfect solution to our layout issues and while we may have been able to build something similar it would have taken a long time and we were ready to get camping.

    Steve and the Camp N Car team are also a class act and were very helpful addressing all of our questions with kindness and patience. And believe me, I had a lot of questions! We had ours delivered to our home in Florida and were so pleased with how nicely everything was packed up. Be prepared though, one of the boxes is pretty big! All in all we have no complaints and would happily recommend the Frontier Futon to anyone that needs a sturdy convertible bed for their van.

    I am in love with my Frontier Futon! For how big and impressive of a unit it is, assembly was a breeze and I was able to put everything together by myself. The folding mattress that comes with it is really comfy and functions in a very clever way that is easy to use. I love that my Sprinter can both be a place for multiple people to hang out when the Frontier Futon is in couch mode but it’s also a very nice bed. I know it might seem like a lot of money but I am certain that if I tried to DIY this it wouldn’t work nearly as well. Stop second guessing yourself and buy it already!
