Peter, I'm assuming you were trying to be helpful with this, so I'll thank you. I'm hoping to get actual user experience in an AI.

"FYI" is generally considered to be in the spirit of helping, isn't it, and those search results might lead to user experiences.

Not sure if this is worth the effort. Good luck.



FYI

FWIW

Cabbunk ordered and will be delivered by tomorrow evening. The seller was very gracious to ship it out for 2nd day express delivery from the UK to USA. Will report back with feedback after installation and kidsí comments. I figured if I was willing to spend what I did on bugscreens, this should not be a hard decision.

Cab bunk installed happened last night. With the wall panel kit around the window behind the driver seat, combined with the location of the slider door grab handle, the install was much more difficult than it would be on a Sprinter-based Class B+ or C, After our trip, Iíll report back on usage with the kids and some in-use photos. The lower bunk area is pretty tight, so weíll see how that goes.

After much deliberation about how to get the install done, I moved the bracket holding the wall panel as far toward the window as I could to allow for the vertical upright to mount against the B-Pillar. Then the horizontal bar that slides through the bracket on the vertical upright was tight up against the wall kit. I didnít want to make a hole in the wall kit, but needed some way to make sure the bar didnít slip out of the support, so I drilled a hole through each end of that horizontal bar and slid a bolt down through so when the bar is installed in the support, it is now impossible for it to slide out. Photos to come in next post.

It really is a very tight fit, but I believe it will work out ok, as long as the lower bunk kid doesnít feel too claustrophobic

Wachuko, you have to be careful sliding the seats forward as the slider mechanism will sort of shred the ends. At some point Iíll probably wrap the ends in some black duck tape so they have some more strength. I havenít scraped my ankles on the seat frame since I put them on though so thatís been really nice. They are strapped on with a couple of Velcro cord wraps.
