    Default 307 Hatch Camp Conversion

    Hey everyone, I wanted to check out if anyone had any tips or tricks on how to convert the tiny hatch into a car to sleep in for a quick camp trip or during a road trip, I have had troubles putting my back seats down in my 2003 307 as they wonít fold the whole way and wondering if this is normal or Iím missing something. Tips donít need to be extremely comfortable but I would like to have the choice of sleeping in my car when out camping with my mates. Cheers

    Lift the base up first

    1. Take off the rear seat head rests and place in the rear passenger footwells.
    2. Lift up the front of the rear seats and pull forward. They drop in the footwells.
    3. Drop the rear seat backrests forward.

    And you end up with an almost flat base. Perfect if you are no taller than 160cm.

    I have slept in a sleeping bag in this configuration in my 307. I'd only do it again if I was desperate.

    Thanks guys, amazing how you think you know everything about your car and keep finding new things, gave it at a quick shot and while definitely not comfortable for my 190cm height definitely works if I ever need it, thanks everyone
