I slept in the back of my Ex after partying. It was a wise choice.
 






yea

I have its pretty comfortable if you have pillows and a blanket.

Tried voting didn't work.
 






All the time. I use one of those air matresses. Very comfy. Works better with a 4door than the 2door I have now. Don't use a thick matress though, the thinner ones work better over the wheel wells.

I sleep there every time I go camping. It beats setting up a tent. Then you get light, music, dry, etc, etc..
 






Before I had my system in my explorer, I kept a queen size blanket and 2 pillows in the back all the time. Made for many good naps, when ditching school, or when out camping.

been there, done that, works very nicely. i do that all the time actually, and not allways alone ;)
 






In my old explorer I made a platform that made it so I could put in a queen-sized air matress and it was flat adn VERY comfortable. honestly I prefered it to my bed at home sometimes! It also doubled as a cargo storage box! That was one of my greatest self-made mods :)

I cant vote either, but I have slept in the back once, in the front seat once, both times very drunk. Wasnt comfortable at all because I didnt have any blankets or pillows.

:D I'm guessing that it would be a lot better than the 'traditional' back seat!! :D

-EDIT-
Also, if you slept in it in the street and your city had an overnight parking ban, could you get out of the ticket because technically you could say that you were in the car to move it? Just wondering.
 






I used to have 2 pillows and 2 layers of comforter and it used to be my shag-mobile... until I wised up... hehehehe...
 






Never slept in the back (2 door, not enough room), but i have slept in the front seat on long trips. Just cranked the seat back, not too bad.
 






yup we use it for camping but im seriously gonna buy a tent
 






I dozed off in it two weeks ago at the Drive-In during 'X-Men 2'...does that count?
 






It was so hot one night camping that I couldn't sleep. I got in the Mounty and slept like a rock with the rear a/c on all night. It was just like a motel.
 






Coming from SJ, heading to Montauk a few years ago. Heading out for the fall Striper run. Made it out around 3am, slept in the Ex for about 3 hours till sun rise.

When we arrived at the point the weather was down right crappy, wind was howling and the rain was coming down hard. I dont know how I ever fell asleep that morning?:cool:

So yes, Ive slept in my Ex. :D
 












I'm gonna have to if it goes into the shop again ;)

I've slept in it once or twice when camping, the only problems are the light in the mornings, and they get hot, fast when the sun comes up.

Actually reminds me of a story about my brother. he has this Grand Voyager minivan, he and his wife sleep in it all the time when they're travelling. They just pull off at truck stops and sleep. Well, we were in WV for family reasons once, and I rented two big hotel suites, one for me, and one for, well everyone else LOL. They slept in their van in the parking lot. They chose it over an empty, and free queen sized bed. Some people I suppose...
