Thanks Pete! I have a sheet if Luan that I am going to cut to 32x74 and put it in there just for a final check to make sure the angled beds don't look too hooky.

It has definitely been slow going lately! Finally sold the trailer so we can concentrate in the moho

Yes, we have twins in our 64, and it's a pain to use the drawers underneath. I store repair items there, and actually one side has no drawers due to the fresh water tank. The other side I put my battery bank and removed the drawers and just have the cabinet there since it is such a pain - the 64 has a drop down face with drawers underneath, and you have to be careful not to break the face of that drop down door, so I avoid using it when possible. You'd be better off to make them so they are lift up storage for bulky items such as comforters or sleeping bags. (one of my twins - the storage one - actually does that.) the only reason for a wider path in the center is to allow two thin people to pass by each other. If it's too narrow, they can't do that.

Robwok; thanks for the info. Make sense to not even plan on usable storage under the twins. As long as we have at least 14" in the center I think we will be good Just worried about the look. Me thinks I worry to much!

Dave, I wouldn't worry about looks as much as I would about comfort

Frame material

Well, I am set to build the twins on my next week-end off. I am trying to figure out the best and easiest way to build them. I was thinking about a frame out of 1X4 poplar skinned with 1/4 red oak plywood. I am worried that this may not be sturdy enough. I could beef it up with aluminum angle on the top as well. I was also thinking about just cutting a piece of 3/4" plywood to use as the side.

Any thoughts, plans or guidance would be greatly appreciated!
