Overhead bunk renovation

I have a class C 1990 Coachman catalina were the overhead bunk had a ton of water damage. I am now in the process of redoing all the wood. And relaminating everything. Can someone help me with understanding what gives the upper bunk it's support? It appears to me that the support comes from the lamination of the wood to the foam and aluminum frame. If so my plans were to glue them in place with liquid nails, I have tub and shower liquid nails for gluing the foam, and on the aluminum frame I'm using a construction grade glue, loctite brand I think. Can anyone see any problems with this plan, if anything I want to make it stronger, defiantly not weaker. Any advice would be great. Thanks

Just had my overhead switched from an entertainment center to a bed. A two piece foam mattress was made so I could slide one under the other when head room was needed. The half that bridged the overhead cut out has the thick foam pad glude with contact cement to 3/4 inch plywood. Then a nice zippered cover was made to fit over the pad and wood base. The other half did not need the plywood because it lays on the overhead platform. It also has a zippered cover to match. When head room is needed for passing from cab to coach, I slide the half with the plywood base under the pad without the wood base. The zippered covers can be removed for washing when needed. simple yet effective. good luck
