Here's another one

Here is a shot of a bunk bed I made for my Ambassador.

Turned out pretty nice, but my kid is too scared to sleep up there

It's not a 71 but...

Here are our all wood bunks (modeled after an original one that came with the trailer) in our 58 Sovereign. In 58, Airstream did curved cabinetry - a feature I love.

Wood

It would be white birch. Cabinets are a combo white birch / maple.

I will get some pics and dimensions of the one that I had made, it doesn't have the bent corners cuz i guess that was too difficult but the guy did a great job welding the corners.

If you search on threads with this subject and my screen name, you will find all of the dimensions and pictures you need...I did this several months ago for the forum, using our Sovereign.

Here are some pics of the one I had made. It is made of 1 x 1 1/2 aluminum tubing. I used the hinges that I got from Inland Andy, even though they are not the same as original they still work well. They fold up opposite of how the originals do but that works well because they are held open by weight. They canvas isn't installed yet but my mother made it using the original as a guide.
