There are over 30 common types of polyurethane sold in tubes, Sealants AND adhesives. I used a product from 3M. Product # 540. This is a Sealant, not an adhesive. I.E, this product does not harden like an adhesive. Gorilla glue is a great product, but you'd need a chisel to remove it after it sets. I just checked & I can still remove the bolts (although it wasn't easy ). I re-sealed the bolts. I'm not saying this is the best option (but it's stronger!). Replacing bad plywood is better (although mine is good yet) Better yet to simply use more & bigger screws. As for selling the Trillium - I'll be sleeping in the shed if that ever happens ! Our 17 year old daughter wants it when we're done with it. She'll be waiting a long time!

Sounds like you used the right stuff after all. I was really looking forward to the thread. Never say never on selling. You live in the land of Trilliums and a 4500 may pop up that you just can't pass up. Those extra inches on the bed you know. Take care, Raz

If he got a 4500, I suspect that his daughter would be kinda mad if he sold his 1300.

Speaking from experience, no doubt.

Good news for me personally....I carefully peeled back the ensolite under the window, and the wood is fine...looks old, as it is, but NO ROT! It does look like there are a couple of extra screw holes that probably should be plugged...looks to me like the bunk might have been a problem with previous owners. Whew!
