Seeking Alum. Frame Bunk Beds

Looking for aluminum frames (2) for bunks for '66 Tradewind. Have part of the hardware, but need source for it too. OK with someone who can fabricate the frames, then we can have the canvas done. Any suggestions? Thanks!

There is a huge liability involved with the bunk bed frames.

They can fall, whenever the hangers become an issue.

Attorneys, then, just love to take the vendor to task.

We were warned sometime back, by a huge law firm, not to do it.

More than likely, you will have to create your own bunks.

Andy

If you click on my gallery, you can see the bunks we made using lightweight camping cots.

Andy,
Speaking of product liability; I have been diagnosed with Aluminitis, which is traceable to my trailer. From what I am told, there is NO cure. That being said, I believe that lawyers and courts are a messy affair, and should be avoided at all costs. Most people can arrive at an amicable settlement amongst themselves.

Armed with this new information about my unfortunate condition; I appeal to your sense of decency and fairness to settle this matter. I propose that a shiny new AS Classic would help me to manage my affliction. I am not suggesting that you take full responsibility for my malady as I share some responsibility for having been warned about the risks before jumping in head-first. So, I of course will take responsibility for a tow vehicle and will even come to pick up the new shiny pill. So, whatta ya say?...can we settle this? I anxiously await your response and my new keys too!
Thank you in advance for your prompt attention to this matter, and your certain concern for my long term recovery.
Very Truly Yours,
The Afflicted
