Queen bed

Has anyone changed a bunk bed rear to a single Queen bed in a 75 26ft. What would be involved to make the change

Am I looking at bunks?

Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.

Holy crap that is awesome. How much weight will the upper bunks take? As to your question. All that is involved is ripping out the bunks a cabinet and putting in the queen. Which means lots and lots of hours and some interesting fabrication. But if there is nothing structural in the way and no water heaters power converters under the bunks it shouldn't be to bad.

May you have at least one sunny day, and a soft chair to sit in..

I've been contemplating my "forever airstream" having a rear bed almost queen size, but fitted 6" narrower and shorter, that goes across the back of the trailer, then having a bunk that sits like one of these on one side, so my "future proposed child" will have a place to sleep. The catch is the open end of the bed would have to be away from the bunk, so the pillows would need a head-board. With a 7' 6" inner dimension, having a 5' 9" bed leaves 21", which is not quite enough for the toilet and a wall. A bed only 5' 6" long would leave enough room, but that's a short enough bed to leave the side in the curve uncomfortably short.
