Probably dont plan to do this in interest of keepng mostly original, but a thought. I have 3 boys. Would love to see pictures and design if anyone has done this or similar.
Matt,

Here are some pictures of a convertible bunk that may give you some ideas.

Wow, was that a factory option on the camper? I guess the load is distributed onto the ledger boards at the head and foot which are a cabinet?

Yes it was a factory option but not for Airstream...

This is in our 73 Avion.

Here are some pictures of the ledger boards and the piano hinge connections.

That factory bunk option was quite a piece of cabinetry. I have only seen this on one other Avion. Thanks for showing the pictures.

So it has been a while since I posted. Had several projects going on, but now I am putting some focus on the AS. I have decided after reading many of the posts here that I will do a full "shell off" resoration/remodel. I have gutted the interior, dropped the belly skin, drilled out all the necessary rivets - including hidden ones, and cut the elevator bolts holding the shell to frame. Does anyone have any advise about the best way to attach the braces to the shell before I try to lift it? I just really dont want to bend or damage any ribs, etc...
