Hi Deb(s) et al....My '75 Tradewind has a factory-installed bunkbed. The bunk drops down to form a back to the twin bed which turns it into a sofa (does this make sense?). If I could attach a picture, I would, but right now I'm clueless as to how this works. If anyone wants to see a picture, PM me and I will e-mail a photo.

I am going to remove the bunk as I don't need it and it feels a tad bit claustrophic to sleep under it. I may keep the bunk for the next owner - or I could give it away if someone really really wants it.

BTW, I am considering getting a futon in lieu of the foam pad which seems uncomfortable for full-timing and a bit of a hassle to pull out every night.

Annette: really easy to attach a photo. you can even edit a previous post, and add a picture later. all you have to do is scroll down beneath the post composition window, and you'll see a button that says "manage attachments". click that, and another window will open that allows you to browse to the picture's location on your hard drive. then click the "upload" button, followed by the "close window" button, and you're done.

picture should be resized to 640 x 480 max, though.

Andy: do you have any of the other bunk parts in stock? like the wall hinges, and the straps/cables themselves?

others: I believe the bunks had a low weight rating..intended for kids. I could definately make use of one in a couple of years. for now, Jr. sleeps in his playpen, which fits perfectly on one of the 2 twin beds (matress removed). I'm told by more experienced parents that he'll probably still need that next year, too. but after that....a bunk would probably be easier than me dealing w/ the front gaucho.

Okie dokie, Chuck, I'll give it a try. (Uh, it's not showing up in "preview post" so let's see if it's here when I actually post.)

We have a few of the cable type and quite a few of the strap type.

Fansler.

We do not sell used parts.

We also do not have any drawings for that bed/lounge.

Perhaps you can find a neighbor that has a similiar coach, and copy them.

Andy

on the hunt for bunk beds

I didn't know bunks were so popular.... both of us are a little to old to be crawling up into them. Seems to me as I saw a picture of a Sovereign somewhere that had "homemade" added bunks above the center twin beds, and there were a total of six kids sleeping in them. Was that one of you out there?

We are developing our A/S into more of a retirement home built for two.
We are thoroughly enjoying all the info that we have gotten from you "professionals" (That includes you, Andy)

Anybody else want to get on the "bunk list"????

Beth Ann
67 Sovereign, Double Bed (as soon as I find a mattress), and rear bath

So few bunks - so little time!!!

Wow, Debbie Noon, is that what those funky little cables are for? We found a couple of them mixed in with the jacks and couldn't figure out what they were. I can't wait to get off here and run to the trailer and show hubby. Now, here's what I have..... a wooden bunk frame, a mattress (in good shape), two aluminum brackets that attach to the wall with rivets, one ceiling bracket and two cables. If I can get hubby to lay all parts on a tarp, I'll take a picture. However, we have to get them out of the barn and I don't think that will happen until late next week. We will heading to Minnesota for granddaughter's birthday and stopping by Scrapbooker65's place in Des Moines to pick up parts.

Minneapolis area folk.... we are looking for someone that owns a late 60's Sovereign. Need to pick your brain and talk shop. Would like hands on "training".

Back to bunk..... I guess am at the point where it's first come, first served. Please PM me if interested.

Beth Ann

Sorry, I've been away

To all those who are interested in bunk beds, I haven't forgotten you. We got a little sidetracked with a trip to Minnesota for granddaughter's birthday and upon our return, I got bad news from cardiologist. It's fixable, but it sort of threw me. H Hessig, will you please email me again, I deleted you in my confused state. Thanks. I do have pictures of bed parts to send, just need to locate all to load. I finally found a picture of the interior before we took out the bunk hardware.

Stopped by Scrapbooker65's place on the way home and bought lots of parts. I'm assuming she will list the rest of the stuff on the forum. The stove is really nice. Also many bathroom parts. It was sort of sad though seeing the inside of that little baby gutted.
Hope to talk to some of you on Tuesday.

Beth Ann

Smile re: "chains"

our 1968 soverign had the metal frame folding bunks. Ceiling bracket was slotted, no reinforcement just rivited to ceiling. The "chain" was a vinyl clad cable with a knob on each end which slid into keyhole style openings on the celining brackets and the aluminum frame. There were metal brackets mounted to the underside of the overhead storage which held the folded bunks when not in use.

Hope this is helpful.....

Annette, I am glad you resoponed to this thread. I recently purchased a 75' Tradewind and thought it would be roomy enough but with three boys I sure could use a bunk. From what I can tell we have the exact same floor plan. Please attach the some other photos when you have the time. If you think you might be able to part with your BUNK it would be very much appreciated. I live down in San Diego. Thanks in advance. Bob
