Just curious on the comfort of the upper bunk. We have a couple teenagers who are just going to get bigger. My daughter is 5'4" and I think she would go in the bunk, I don't think she will be growing much more. Do you think it is big enough to be comfortable? It would be great is she had her own little space. Thanks.

I've only seen it and vaguely inspected it - 150 lb limit per sticker - looks ok I think for a teen - if not some foam tipper and be good to go I think

We took my daughter out with us for a weekend trip about a month ago. My step daughter (developmentally delayed 25 year old), normally sleeps on the lower bunk; wife and I in the front bed room, so my daughter ended up in the upper bunk. She is 31, 5'-7", but skinny as a rail (110lbs.). She slept fine and had no complaints.

I on the other hand am 5'-11" and 210 lbs., so I will not attempt to contort myself into that space.

We have a 05 Bunkhouse and the bunk is the same. Our third daughter has slept up there since the trailer was new and she is now 13 and 5'8" around 100lbs. She loves it up there. Her own space to read with the reading light etc. Bed below is awesome as well. We have the queen lower bunk and have had 3 kids in it with no issues.

We have slept 8 on many occasions and sleep 7 everytime we go out as we have 5 daughters.

SafariSS, that sounds like fun! I love reading the bunkhouse threads. We have a custom bunkhouse for our seven kids and we love to read about the new ones as well.

We are camping now so I climbed up into the top bunk tonight while the stuffed animals were out of the way. I was surprised that it seems longer and wider than it looks. I am about 5' 5" and 140lb. It was not that hard to get up there, and I could probably sleep comfortably with maybe a little extra foam on the mattress. Anyone sleeping there would have to remember not to sit up suddenly. I will measure it when we get home and post the dimensions.

That's good to hear about the upper bunk. Our 6 year old is the only one who has been up there at this point, and we were worried that it would start to get a little claustrophobic for him sometime in the next 5 or so years.

We tow with an F250, btw. Ours has 4 doors, and the back seat is surprisingly spacious. Works great for 2 kids and one small dog who sits buckled in the middle.

We're on an extended, unplanned camping hiatus, but love hearing how others are liking their new bunkhouses.
Pharmgeek, you must be so excited that yours is almost ready!

Can hardly sleep - literally

(this also has to do with the insanely uncomfortable bed and pillows at my in-laws - worst sleep of my life hands down)

I'll be curious to hear if you rank the airstream stock mattress better or worse...

What's your first trip going to be?

I think first trip will be monte sano state park in Huntsville over thanksgiving weekend

I'll give impressions of mattress - I plan on buying an inexpensive topper

I also have an extra queen mattress at home not in use and could use that - but would restrict space and movement in that room if put in there

I know Allison and Rhett up the road find it ok - they use an inexpensive foam topper as well

I've slept growing up in all sorts of beds - futons - floors - this bed at the in-laws is specially made somehow to cause pain - I kid you not - I bought a cheap topper for it last night and made little difference

I'm sure I'll provide a lot of feedback on my unit over time

I'll even try out the bunk

This is a great thread, it shows how well designed Airstreams are. The bunk looks unusable from some photos yet nobody has complained about it, in fact everyone has said how well the bunk works.
