Bunk bed sides?

Hello,

I have a 94 Bigfoot 21.5. our son will be two this summer and hoping to start using the fold down 'bunk' bed above the table. I would like to attach (clamp?) something to the sides so he doesn't roll off the bed....any suggestions?

While I am on the topic, has anyone out there added a bunk bed above the main bed in the rear? We might be looking into this as well. One of the issues is the window being there.

thnx

I've seen some PVC constructions on this site. Also you might look at the guard rails available commercially, like these:

Amazon.com: bed guard rails

I just got a baby bed rail from toys r us I might have some pictures floating around if need be, Its 24.99. When the bunks are set up I unzip what is the top bunk cover just far enough to slid the two legs in under the foam but on top of the wood and viola a barrier is set up. When he needs down there are 2 buttons to flip it down thus the bottom bunk suddenly becomes a cave, a fort/entertainment because its closed in like an animal cage and kids think its fun. When I am done using it, it folds flat and then I tuck it behind the couch as it has just the right spacing.

Since I don't have my photos I'll just include the toys r us ones to give you an idea.

How about putting some velcro on the PJ's and the other half on the mattress? JK.

The velcro pajamas thing could work particularly well in a Scamp with rat fur headliner. Heck, you wouldn't even need a bunk. Of course you'd have to worry about attitude problems. People will think you've got some major hang-ups and stuck-up kids.

I have a 98 21.5 bigfoot with a front dinette and my girls really want a bunk over it. I would love to see how yours is constructed.

I have tears in my eyes from laughing...
Yes, I'm a parent. No, I wouldn't do that, but it sure is a funny post....

I made these rails for my Escape trailer. Perhaps they would sell you a set of the standard Escape Trailer bunk bed support assemblies.
