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.
