Bunk Bed Upgrade

Hi all!

We have recently purchased a 13ft Burro because my wife and I were sick of getting soaked every time it rained in our old tent :-). Also, it's too damn cute.

Anyway, my kids are 9 and 11...I want to upgrade the front bunks to support more weight. I swear I came across a thread the other day that had a detailed account of a wood upgrade that had a ladder. I can't seem to relocate it.

It was similar to this, but I could swear there was more detail.

There is also a very good thread where someone is strengthening the upper bunk with a metal t-slot structure, but I am hoping to do something that blends in more with the existing interior.

I'm also thinking of using 4 stainless boat stanchions (replacing the front two and adding two to the back corners).

If anyone can find that thread (or has any other great) it would be much appreciated.
