Will the Cabinet & Desktop work with an existing platform I built? Maybe, the Storage Cabinet & Desktop requires access to the drivers side rear seat connection for install. If your platform is covering this area you will not be able to install our cabinet. If your platform is supported from the floor and not using the rear seat connection areas for support you will likely be able to install our Cabinet.
How much does it weigh? 164lbs for a complete system. Removing the Camp Kitchen & Sideboard (38lbs) brings the Systems weight to 127lbs. This is what we usually have in our Element on a daily basis. The rest of the Components; Bed/Bench (43lbs), Storage Cabinet & Desktop (34lbs), Camp Kitchen & Sideboard (38lbs), Center Console (16lbs), Rear Storage Boxes (16lbs), Front Seat Platforms (20lbs). The original Honda Element rear seats are 43lbs each. Removing both will net you 86lbs.
