Securing bunks from falling off

Hi all!
so i am pretty new to the RV world and so far i love it! before i start - thank you all for the amazing community!
OK, so i have a hybrid RV, i can't help worrying about these because the only thing holding the canvas is Velcro. it's super easy for my kids to put just a little bit of pressure on it and they can fall right out. is these a solution out there for this?
thank you!

We used to have a Rockwood Hybrid many moons ago. If I recall correctly this had snaps to hold the canvas. You could attach the snaps to the canvas and the frame. Would give you extra holding power on top of the velcro.

So my old Fleetwood pop up had bungees along the bottom edge and hooks under the bunk that it woul hook onto l. 4 hooks per side of bunk and was actually quite secure.

I know our first Rockwood Roo (a 2009) had snaps and bungee cords to hold the skirting canvas fastened to the bunks but our new Roo has the canvas fastened directly to the platforms.


If your hybrid doesn't have bungees on the outside holding the canvas taut, then maybe you could find an upholstery shop who could put in grommets on the outer skirting so you could use bungees to keep the skirting tucked under tightly.
