Interesting Kids Beds - We're going to try

As my name on the forum might indicate, I'm an "old" first time dad. We primarily use our AI as a road-tripping machine rather than a camper. However, I ran across this product that may change our view a bit. It claims to allow the addition of two Kids beds in the cab. I ordered it today and we are going to give it a try. I'll let the forum know how it goes. http://www.cabbunk.co.uk/

I will be very interested in your impressions of this product. Ive seen a few similar versions on Pinterest or YouTube but never any feedback on how the kids like these cots and whether they are comfy enough for a weeklong trip. Hope you have a chance to repost after your kids have slept in it. Good luck.

Nice find and a very clever idea. I've seen some DIY approaches that are similar, but nothing with 2 bunks. Figures this comes from the UK. The Europeans are used to traveling with families in small "caravans" and they need to make use of every inch of space.

Please report back on how they work out!

Cabbunk First Impressions

Last Thursday we were able to give the Cabbunk a try at Arrow Rock State Historic Site in Missouri. My kids, aged 7 and 9 gave it a thumbs up. I think with a few more adjustments, I can make it more comfortable for them. Now the 50 degree temperature swing between the afternoon and the morning was another thing...

Looks like you need the sliding door kit to use in the AI?

Thanks for the update. I think their smiles say a lot about what they think.

What changes are you planning to make?

My grandkids would have loved those.

Congratulations on finding a way...

Great pic of the kids!
I am in the process of figuring something out for my two kids as well.
Just curious, how did the vertical bar which runs up the two sides attach to the van? Would you mind sending some pics of those areas or a bit of a description?

Thanks and congrats on making some smiles!

Forum, sorry for the delay. Yes, in answer to the previous questions, I did get the sliding door kit. The kit itself is really just 2 steel bars you would find at home depot to hang heavy duty adjustable shelving on the wall. It is a U shaped perforated bar with two slots per position. In addition to the shelving standards, cabbunk sends a modified clothes rod holder that fits into the slots. I had to modify the driver's side bar (5" shorter) to fit under the open shelf in my unit. The bars have rubber feet on them, which I placed in the tie-down rings in the floor of the sprinter. As advertised, I didn't really affix the rearward part of the apparatus to anything.

Hello, I'm new to this forum and was interested in the Cabbunk but not sure how my kids will like it. Before spending big bucks on a new one, I was wondering if anyone had one they never use or kids outgrew that they would consider selling?
