Rear seat

Does the back seat "open up/fold down" so that it can be used as a bed?

No. But it does recline pretty far and is quite comfortable if there isn't much tall stuff in behind the seats preventing them from reclining

Nope, you have to go with the Sienna or Sedona if you want those fancy airline seats!

Well dang, I was hoping to be able to park at family members house, plug in and sleep overnight; since they don't have room in the house.

Stow all the seats and there would be tons of room for an air mattress.

Did you consider folding the seats down and using an air mattress? The Pacifica makes it convenient with the Stow "n Go seats and the supplied air compressor for the spare tire/tire repair kit can be used to blow up the air mattress. The air compressor comes with a couple adapters.

My wife has a Honda element where the seats actually do sort of fold to a bed. I've always wanted to do the e-camper conversion where they basically make the car into a mini pop up camper.


regarding car camping, if you are going to take the trouble to remove all of your gear, fold the seats in, then blow up an air mattress, would it be just as easy at that point to just bring a tent?

It does recline enough to sleep in, like on an airliner. Not the fancy Emirates first class, but business, yes.

It probably would be just as easy or easier to just bring a tent. But I did prefer sleeping in my van several times at an annual week long event where the camping was essentially in a mowed field. The area typically had at least two late afternoon or night thunderstorm with strong winds during the week. Being in the van I did not have to worry about flooded ground or the wind blowing down my shelter. If things got too hot and humid, running the AC for just a little while before bed time made a huge difference. Can't do that in a tent.
