Our "new Boler 1700 has the configuration of the main couch/bed being lengthwise, on curbside,and a permanently mounted bunk lengthwise above. The placement of the bunk is a bit odd, in that it is about 2 inches below the top of the main window., ie the window that is just above this bed/couch. So, if one is standing up, the bunk blocks the window, and makes the whole trailer seem quite dark.
So, given the fact that grandchildren are non existent as yet, I wondered about taking the plywood totally off the bunk. But it seems a great surface to throw the blankets, pillows on during the day. I also wondered about taking the plywood off, putting new side brackets to support it, and moving it up, perhaps 4 inches. Hope I described this okay. Any thoughts, experiences here? Hey, what about replacing the plywood with plexiglass, but who am I kidding, if it was left there, it would probably always be covered with junk! Thanks!

I am a little confused when you say permanently mounted bunk. Are you saying that it is permanently down in the bed position? Mine was designed to fold up as an overhead cabinet with two doors and then by pulling two latches the face of the cabinet folds down to rest on brackets on the bottom edges of the cabinets on either end. A thin plywood piece slides over the door openings to prevent anyone falling through. When it is in the up position it shouldn't make you feel to cramped since it is only about 13+ inches deep.
