Bunk Beds/Kitchen Table Conversion

Unread postby RRLAG on Tue May 17, 2016 9:52 am

I've owned my trailer for about a year and I finally broke down and decided to do something about the lack of sleeping space. It came with a master suite, a pullout loveseat, and I bought a queen air mattress to give me a 6 person sleeping arrangement. The problem when you have 6 people you have to pump up the mattress every night and deflate it every day to use the kitchen or access the current table.


So the mattress fit between the fridge and the table and from the front counter to the pullout couch

So, I'm putting in bunk beds that convert to a table because IMO the table & chairs are a complete waste of space. We mainly use the table to store booze. I don't think I've ever actually sat on the chairs either.

Here is what I've got done so far.

Old table fits to be part of the floor for the bottom bunk:

1"x4" Supports slide right into place. Outside is doubled up to support sitting weight:

I just have to finish putting the bench supports in, build a frame to support the table when stored & continue the bed platform, and figure out how to support the table when it's in table mode.

The benches will be 18" and double stacked plywood which will be used as the platform cover for the top bunk. Each bunk has ~30" of space from floor to ceiling. So far the bill is at ~$70 the cabinet screws being $30 of that.
