Converting Queen bed/slide into bunks
I wonder if anyone has ever something along the lines of installing bunks in place of the queen/king bed in the back bedroom of a Class A or even a C class/super C
I would love to have two twin size beds in the coach.
They use to put them in some of the Class A's way back. I think more toward the 70's 80's timeframe. I can remember looking at some. I have seen them with the beds on both sides in the rear bedroom, but with the slide this would not be as feasible if they have storage cabinets build on one side. Since most manufactures don't allow custom layouts some things would be better just worked around without too much ripping and tearing out to build again.
I was measuring my slide out and came up with a 75 inch wide space If I took out the side tables, and 73 inches from bottom of storage area below the mattress to the top of slide.
Just brainstorming now as this is not something I would do with my present coach but in a future unit. I never liked queen beds and I would like to be able to sleep two people comfortably without having to make up a couch all the time or convert the dinette.
I came up with the idea of, getting rid of the under bed storage ( not needed for my purposes ) to lower the lower bed slightly and allow for plenty of room inbetween the top and bottom bed. Orientation of the mattresses would be head/foot of mattress toward front or back of coach. This would allow for the slide to close. the way the queen is oriented with the twins instead , the top mattress would hit the cabinet when the slide was closed. 75 inches should be sufficient. The mattresses could also be built outside the well of the slide allowing for some storage cabinets, at least on the sides around the Window.
This would allow enough room to put in a small staircase to climb to the top bunk. Maybe storage under the stair ( shallow drawers ) . Entrance to the bottom bunk could be from the end toward the front of the coach.
I am not even sure this would all fit but I am just hashing over ideas now.
