Jay, I stopped home after my function the other day and noticed that Ron had already posted the bunk bed pics which are almost identical to the Scamp. Are his pictures sufficient? Do you need more pics?

Thanks! That is pretty light. I will have to keep an eye out on all of the modded bunk bed threads.

I was uncomfortable with the fiberglass on the shell only method for a bunk from the get go. I am framing the walls (like framing inside an egg) to better support weight (and to make room for more insulation). This pic is just part of the framing. I will have more horizontal pieces for a bunk and then fiberglass or that in. I will add more blocking at the bunk attachment area. Then I will apply wood finished walls, and the then a bunk bed. In other words I'm building a wood shell (endo-skeleton) inside the fiberglass shell.

Just finished the running lights last night! Wooo hooo!

The 9 year old has been a great help making the framing templates.

Jay, it's good to see a kid involved in the process. She will have a better appreciation of the finished product due to that involvement. Good job!

I agree. I love to see kids being taught practical skills, especially girls.

X3 on agree with kids helping.We have 3 DD's they all have basic knowledge of how to do anything their dad can do. Two of them are better at home repair and car maintenance than their husbands and also have their own tool bags for said work.They both are very good Pen Turners & one has her own pen turning hobby shop. The other one( might I add oldest of the 3) excels at being a supervisor and project planner.

As we know for all the great ladies on this forum...Girls can do it ALL...and do it even better if they start young.

Okay,I'll brag on you guys too,y'll are great too and if you start those boys young they can be even better.

Happy Mods to all...now get ready to go camping too.

Hi Jay,
My bunkbed setup is much like Ron's, but his top bunk is higher than mine. Probably because I have the cabinet above. The only thing I don't like about the bunk bed, is how uncomfortable it is as just a couch. The seat is just too darn narrow. If you come up with a better design for that, I'd like to know. I'm thinking about removing the bunk board which would give it more room. I will then reattach it when I have my grandkiddos with me--which is only about once a year. If you want to get measurements, give me a call and we can set something up.

Okay you may not need them but I finally got over there and cleared everything off the bunks so I could take some pics. This is from a Scamp 19' and notice how the top bunk is curved to allow for the lines of the trailer.
