Bunk beds for a Mountain Aire

Looking to see if anyone has tried to put in bunk beds in the a newmar mountain aire. I saw how they are set up in a Bay Star and it looks like theoretically the same could fit in on the right side of the mountain aire but if anyone has retrofitted or set up bunk beds in the MA i'd love to see some pictures or get some ideas on how to do it.

"UT redeye".....You might get lucky by calling Newmar and see if they have the drawings. Might help in figuring the sizes. Might also be helpful in someone building them for you.

I have a 2002 MA that I added a retractable bunk bed. Gets lifted up to the ceiling for driving by a rotating shaft that winds seat belt material to lift the bunk to the roof. Only takes up about six inches of ceiling height and is on one side of the rig so doesn't affect any ceiling height for walking.

Cobbled together at the last minute for a trip and still needs to be cosmetically finished
But it's certainly possible and ended up being very practical.

There are pictures in my "Back from the Dead" long thread.

I saw that couch/bunk bed in one of the Newmar coaches on display at Tampa RV Super Show, maybe it was in January this year. Was pretty cool - a couch during the day, a set of beds at night.

When I first read this thread, I looked to see what I could find. I couldn't find a retail price, but found a used one on eBay for $4500.

https://www.ebay.com/i/163764537315?...SABEgJ3jfD_BwE

That at least gave me some ballpark price. It sure is super cool!!

Hope this helps!
