The wife and I were planning a camping trip for our family of five, when I asked who was going she replied "the girls dont want to go because they cant take a friend along"(teenagers
). Being the creator that I am I started looking at the bus trying to find extra sleeping spaces. With a bed, a couch that folds out, and the kitchen table that converts in to a bed we can sleep 5.
The way the PO installed the oversized kitchen and the toilet and shower on opposite sides really limited the space available unless I totally redesigned the bedroom and storage space. I thought about tearing everything out and starting new then a thought hit me.......bunk bed conversions. Im not sure if any of you have seen the couch that converts to bunk beds, but for $6000.00 that wasnt a option for me. So my mind goes into creator mode and as Im looking I think why not build your own bunk beds.
I didnt want anything permanent, so I designed the beds with square tubing, plywood, and air mattresses. I put a double bed mattress in the bedroom and a twin size over the the kitchen table.
I designed it to bolt together and when its taken down it will all fit in the closet and one person can put it up in 30 min or less. All the materials cost under $200.00.
I realize that this doesnt work for everyone but those with children or grandchildren who like to bring friends along it beats sleeping on the floor.
