I really like the trailer length/size/functionality and simply added my own bunk over one of the side beds. I think it turned out pretty good. I carefully measured/re-measured many times and have a top bunk that is easy to climb into- they don't need a ladder, yet I didn't have to remove overhead storage units. The headroom on lower bunk is okay, and its nice and dark in that bunk for sleeping in. I'm an adult and have slept in that one myself a few times when the kids wanted to sleep with mom. If I had to do it again I would have done it the same, except made bed about one inch higher.
hi, great info... i need to add a bunk to my '72 31' land yacht mid sleeping area .. did you attach to interior wall ? or built supports under so it sits on bed frame below? seems like the interior walls made from plastic would be strong enough.. thx

I ran supports down the walls that tied in to lower bed frame. Otherwise (you are right) the existing walls are not strong enough. I epoxied/screwed plywood layer to existing wall, then went around edges of it with 1 x 4 lumber that became "legs" supported by floor and bed underneath. After sanding and painting it most people would never be able to tell it wasn't original.

I have driven about 6000 miles in it this year and it has been rock solid with no movement.

I always thought the Kid-O-Bunks would be lightweight and portable, and they can be converted to a couch.

There's also larger versions: Disc-o-Bed.
