Finished....

It's done....and I'm very happy with how it turned out. For the shelf platforms I used leftover laminate flooring cut to the contours of the Scamp. The supports were 5/8" square doweling, which I covered with leftover fabric that I used when reupholstering my cushions. I used corner molding (which also was covered with leftover fabic) as facing on the shelves.
I did not bolt/screw/ or make any permanent holes to any part of the Scamp, but instead used hook and loop tape (a Scamp owners best friend) to anchor the parts and pieces.. I glued it to the back of the doweling so it would "catch" the rat fur and where the right legs meet the wooden screen divider, I glued hook and loop to the wood to match up to the legs. Put added pieces along the back curve of the shelves to give added support.
Thank you Donna for your suggestion, which I followed, so if I want to use the bottom bunk I don't have to pull the shelf out...
I'm a happy camper...

Very nice, and I like not having any permanent attachment.

What an attractive way to gain some additional storage in an otherwise wasted space. Thanks to both you and Donna for seeing a solution that I'll be putting to use.

Excellent - I love the way you tied it in visually by using leftover fabric.

It looks like you've got it going on there with the upholstering skills!

Great work. Simple, attractive and useful. Also like the none permanent but sturdy solution of hook and loop tape.

I agree! 😊
Very nice, Louise!

Have you considered doing something like that on the other side?

I've wondered if non-permanent shelves on both sides could also be used as support
for vertical "back cushions" if we did an occasional/part-time front dinette option ...
something like I've been considering and Jim actually did. (See the following thread.)
Installing a front dinette while retaining bunks, couch and porta-potti in 13' Scamp"

Thanks all.
Ray, the other side, next to the stovetop, I have a set of drawers with a cutting board anchored to the top. The room behind the drawers and space towards the front of the Scamp I use to store paper towels, packaged coffee beans and a plastic bag holder.
I took a picture of it today so you can see it. I glued some leftover fabric that I had from the seat cushion to the front of the drawers. My clothes lived in those drawers last summer and will probably live there again this summer.
