So it passed the happy consumer test! My wife also climbed into the street side bunk, it was a tight fit but it held her weight. It was too tight for an adult, but will be great for the kids.

Sweet! Looks GREAT! When the kids get bigger, will you make the bunks wider?

We are hoping to have the front dinette done by then. Me and the better can sleep on it, and the kids can use the twin beds. The upper bunks can then function as storage. They are currently about 20" wide.

Thumbs up

Very nice! Thank you for starting thread. I'm ripping out some flimsy walls today, and will be looking at your thread again for pointers.

That sliding bunk is SWEET! nice job .

A rope ladder would be cool and easier to store.

Thank you!


Yea I'm leaning to a rope ladder. A ridged ladder will be in the way, and would have to sit on the bed.

I was thinking of a narrow ladder that can double as a guard rail when traveling. We typically throw things on the bunks during travel and it would be nice to have a guard to keep it from falling off. Also, after the kids get settled it could clip into the top bunk at night.

Silverflames,


Bunks look great, but I'm really interested in your flooring. What is it, please?

Rollster,


It is the Allure Dark African Wood sticky sides vinyl planks from Home Depot. It was the easiest flooring I have ever installed. It my wife and about 6 hours to install through the whole trailer. That does not include the prep work.

My brother in law sells flooring for a living, and he thinks very highly of brand/style. Installing it in a RV voids the warranty, but I have spoke to others who have had it installed in the units for years without problems. It was installed here in Fl in the summer. So far no problems. Dogs and kids have been in and out of it, no scrapes so far.. I'll keep my fingers crossed....

I think there is more pics posted on my rear end separation thread.



The guard rail/ ladder is a good idea, could even work as a bed rail... Humm..

Thanks a bunch! We actually have a sample of your exact floor sitting in our AS now while we're trying to decide. Glad to hear you've not had any problems with it. We also live in Florida and have a dog (no kids), so were wondering how it would stand up to heat and claws. It looks beautiful!

Oh, I wish we could! We missed it last year by a day (we were camped at Topsail for New Year's Eve) and vowed to go to the next one, but I believe it's a little later in January now, and I have to return to work (I'm a teacher). We're sorry to miss it since it looks like a blast! Thanks, though, and enjoy it.
