No, no bunk beds. Mike will have to chime in to correct me. But I believe the cushion I have is from the top bunk, and it sits on top of the two seats (with a board between the two). It is in one piece. Mike's wife recovered the cushion in a lovely suede fabric. I can give you that set of dimensions if you like. I have been pondering changing the cushions so that it is easier to get at the storage areas. Did the lower originally come in 4 pieces? I am curious.

Sharon; our Uhaul was missing all of the front bunk components, but there was two long, full width cushions that we used as a "couch" type seating. They must have been part of the front bunk. Wasn't that comfortable so now we have one captains chair that was salvaged from a Casita mounted just inside the door, then the rest of the front space is cushions that would have been from the rear seating/bed area. If you go to the document center here, all the way to the bottom of that page, under trailer manufacturers, click on Uhaul, and you can access the repair manual, parts manual, and some other info. In the parts manual on page56 there is a diagram showing the cushions. Not a very good diagram, but you can sort of make out how the cushions would be with the bunk made up. We have almost all of the cushions in their original covering. There are a couple that are quite small, apparently used as filler pieces on the bunk. I remember seeing here a long time ago, like maybe close to 2 years, a picture of how the cushions were to be placed for the rear bed. No idea how to find it again. Since our bed stays made up, we have a 5" thick piece of foam for a mattress, don't use the cushions to sleep on.

bunk bed cushions

Hi; The cushion in Sharons uhaul , I believe, was the mattress part of the upper bunk. I've noticed its a little oversized. There may be dimensions in tthe uhaul manuals in the document section. Mike

Opposite direction

Hi Sharon,

We have an '84 Burro-13 which we got in Central MA and moved to Western MA-moving in the opposite direction of yours. As you may know, the Burro and UHaul are first cousins.

We have done lots of upgrades to it, but we have learned, like many before us, the most valuable upgrade (for 2 campers only) is to make the bed permanent and change the front bunks into a dinette. Our dinette can be converted to a single bunk in a similar fashion to the conversion of the rear bed/table.

We rarely camp where there are hookups so the Burrito's electric is completely 12V. But we do carry a charger for when we have the opportunity to top off the battery. We don't use microwave or TV while camping (we camp to get away from those things), and the fridge runs on Propane when bookdocking, and all lighting is LED, so the battery lasts for a very long time.

Let me know if you want to chat about upgrades to your CT. I drive to Worcester 3 days a week and try to look at this forum about once per week.
Rick & Darcy

Rick and Darcy,
Thank you for your kind offer. I would love to take you up on your offer when life slows down a little. At the moment, the UHaul is resting comfortably under her winter jacket. I am slowly collecting supplies and thinking about things. I am watching the electrical and window discussions very carefully. I have no useful skills, and my husband says that his 3 year old overdue project comes before this one, so I want to be ready with all the schematics and information for when he is ready for a new project.

But my porta potty arrived yesterday along with a hand pump for the sink. I still want to be able to use the eating area, although I can barely squeeze past the fiberglass table, so designing a more usable table with an adjustable pedestal is top on my personal list.

Sharon

Yes, Here in the soon to be frozen Northeast, it is time to put all good FG campers to bed for the winter. Although since our Burro sits in the driveway, it warms up nicely on a sunny day, and I can get small interior projects done on good days. Also, the addition of a small portable electric heater makes it toasty warm in just a few minutes.

Most of the pedestal tables, have cut corners in front to facilitate sliding past the table to get to the seat. In addition, rotating the table on the pedestal makes this move easier. When we made the front dinette, the right side did not require a corner cut as there is plenty of room to slide in. However the left side is another story because of the encroachment of the countertop. So we have a nice corner cut on that side, but not enough to prevent the top from being used as a middle cushion support when down in bed mode.

Rick.
