Bunk Bed info sought by newby with rear twins

Very excited to be counted among you.
Just purchased a 1974 31' AS Sovereign International with rear twins. We are interested in hearing from anyone with ideas of how to add bunk beds. I have seen this done with 31'ers with rear baths, but never with our set-up.
Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the forum!
I can't answer your question, but with a search I came up with a couple of threads for you that may.

So How do you tell your twins apart? Dimples?

Pizza Chop's most excellent bunks are permanent. Mine are removable, similar to the original Airstream optional bunk, fabric sling construction. Do a search and see my post under the thread Bambi Bunks. PM me if you want details.

Thanks to all! This is great information. Almost seems like cheating having a resource such as this forum. I know having something like this when I restored my '69 FJ40 Landcruiser back in college would have gone much faster/smoothly.
PizzaChop-A special thanks to you for saving me an additional thread/search regarding installing a booth dinette.

I am torn between going with the removable cot-style bunks such as Lumatic or attempting a curved bunk such as member InsideOut has in their '56 Safari (thanks for the thread, FYRZOWT).

Just to keep this bunk information all consolidated on the most recent thread about bunks, Sequoiacoast devised a really clever solution for a temporary mid-bed bunk without using the slings that resemble the OEM bunks (although those are very cool as well).

You can check it out on her Full Monte type resto thread, toward the middle of this page:

I love her idea and execution, and will most likely incorporate something like it when I get an AS of my own.
