OK - Now, I am seriously concerned about the lack of support under the cabinet. After I wrote my last post, it dawned on me (as Ed noted) Scamp put that support there for a reason. So now I need to build it back up and add some support. I am thinking of using some angle iron or wood. I dont know I have to study the problem today.

Thanks for your feed back.

Our VW camper has what is called a "rock 'n roll" bed. It gives you a couch for sitting and then it folds out to make a bed.

What about putting in wood supports to put in bed rails over the back dinette/bed?

My wife, Carol Ann in To had a suggestion. Take a simple folding camp cot, set it up on the floor between the closet and sink, with your feet under the main rear bed and head towards the front bunk.

Cheap, easy to set up and take down and can also be used outside. In the worst case scenario you might need to fold up the foot leg or use some "shims" to make everything level.

Or, you could do what we do, get a nice screenroom that has walls that can roll down at night. Use a cot and make that your daddy-bed-suite-deluxe.

On a side note my 70 boler does not have the support the later ones did. I keep my dishes and some food up there and have not had any issues. No stress cracks in the glass either. These days I have it mounted with pan head screws instead of the rivets but still never added a supporting beam and have no intention of doing so.
