This year, I'm going to try something like this (will make sure to get the right length, but this is the basic idea):

Should pack easy when not in use, will go around the bunkbed supports w/o issue, and it's not a permanent alteration that I'll regret when the kids stop rolling out of the bottom bunk! I will need to mount clips in to fasten this to, but they should be out of sight for the most part.
Who knows, maybe I'll find it doesn't work and be on Plan C next season...
