Does that exist? I have a Compact Hunter that I gutted and built a custom floor plan in to sleep myself, wife and two kids. Have never seen one with bunks. I take that back, I saw one that some one built custom with bunks once on here. Maybe he will post.

Yes they did exist, at least as an offered option in the sales literature, but I haven't ever seen one, much less pics or drawings in the literature of same. I have probably seen at least 50, either in person or in pics and have never seen one with that option installed. Basically they were apparently 24" x 61" "Youth Size" bunk beds, and occupied the space between the refrigerator wall and the back wall. They "May" have put the refrigerator/icebox below them at the back of the trailer, as the wheel well gets in the way further forward.


There was one posted here that the owner had modified about a year ago. And there were a few pics. He built it for his 8 & 10 y.o. as I remember.


If you are looking for a Hunter, and have to have that option, I am afraid that you will be disappointed.

In my Compact-II it is 55" from the back wall to the supporting wall at the edge of the bed, suggesting that they may have had to use a slightly narrower dinette/bed arrangement (without the front bench seats?) to get 61" bunks in there.


That said, Hunters are known for larger than usual beds, mine is Queen width.

I've also seen one where a bunk was added across the foot of the bed. So the main bed went front to back (original config) and then the bunk was added side to side so it would be over the feet of the sleepers in the queen bed. (At least, I think I remember seeing that!) Plus someone changed the stove/sink area into a single child's bunk.

There are three different Hunter Compacts, the Jr. the Compact-I and the Compact-II and they all have somewhat different sleeping layouts/dimensions. I have only seen literature for the Compact-II and it lists the bunk bed option, but it has a traditional east-west sleeping configuration. I know that the Compact-I has an even bigger bed, thus limiting space for bunks even further. The north-south distance on the Compact-II dinette-bed is 60", pretty much ruling out sleeping in that direction.
But if you take another 10" off to make room for the 61" bunk beds you still have a 50" wide dinette-bed.


Again, it would be nice if there was at least a drawing or a picture of the option.

My wife and I are both 6 foot tall and we sleep comfortably in that bed with my 5 yr old in middle. Baby sleeps in bunk I made on fridge side.
