Making bunks

Hi everyone,

In our quest to find an egg, we have found quite a few Trilliums that don't have the front bunk, but we have two little kids. How difficult is it to install a bunk ourselves? We don't have a lot of time or space to work on it.

Thank you!

A lot of it would depend if the trailer does or does not have the support fiberglassed in the front. That's a major attachment point for the bunk.

The support is not glassed in it is just the wood frame across the bottom of the window. The plywood bunk platform attaches to this with a piano hinge through the ensolite. Fred

Is this screwed through the body then if not fiberglassed in?

The window is screwed through the shell into the wood support frame on the inside. On the inside the bunk hinge is screwed through the ensolite into this same piece of wood.

The wood frame piece is not glassed in, it is simply held in place by the window screws.
