Bunk Beds?

I am new to the world of airstreams and looking to purchase one to be restored. We are interested potentially building a set of bunk beds (queen or double size). Does anyone have an experience or have heard of such a thing? We like the layout of the 2009 23 FB Flying Cloud and think it would be great with a set of double-bunks.

We have a 2006 Safari 30' Bunkhouse. It is the only "two bedroom" model Airstream ever made. It is a front bedroom, but not like the current front bedroom models in that the lounge and kitchen are mid-ship with the bath in the rear street side corner and bunk beds in the rear curb side corner with an accordion door. Some of this model had a queen lower and single bunk above. Most had swivel chairs in the lounge but a few (including ours) had a jack knife sofa. With our queen bed in the master bedroom and the bunks in the other plus a convertible sofa and dinette, we could sleep as many as eight, but it would be too crowded for my taste to have that many in even a 30' trailer.

There was a model made a few years back that had a transverse mounted queen bed in the front with a curtain separating the bed from the lounge and a queen in the rear curb side corner with a single bunk above. This plan also had the rear bath in the rear street side corner. There was no real bedroom, though. I believe this plan was a 22' or 23' CCD, IIRC. It may have been available in the Safari also, but I don't recall.

I built some bunks in my 68' for the kids. They are small but you could make them bigger. You can see them here.

If you want info on how I built them just send me a message..

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

Our 77 twin came with thick folding retractable twin bunks. Quite comfortable but somewhat difficult to get into. I have seen many vintage twin bed setups with homemade bunks. Pick your bunk cable support locations carefully. End supports to the walls have also been used but require heavier gauge bed rails.
