Will the bunks from the 4500 work well in a 5500?

This is not my ad, but I think that the 5500 had it's own upper bunk option. The 5500 is wider then the 4500, so some adjustment would be required. Also, the side supports mount to the wood that is around the side windows, so if your windows are a different size, that could also be a problem.

I guess what I am trying to say is it likely will not fit.

I think we've had this conversation before hahaha.

I so badly wanted to hear that it works so I could drive and pick it up tomorrow.
Two boys remain in the tent!

I'm still looking for bunks for the 5500!

Thank you.

It is the side supports that fit around the window that would be the problem. If you could make that work, then the rest is just wood.

The back of the bunk is like the back of a dinette table that turns into a bed. The metal bracket also mounts to the window frame. I assume that your front and back windows are the same as a 4500, but I could be wrong. So, if your side windows are the same width, and the rear window is the same width, then all you would have to do is make a new folding, plywood platform with the supporting oak lumber. Very doable. The cabinets above the dinette get sacrificed. That is where the folded up bunk goes.

I have all the hardware from a 4500 bunk, just like in the ad. I have also got an AutoCAD drawing of the assembly, but I just can't figure out how some of the hardware is used. If you want any measurements, I will be glad to provide them.

David, do you know if that bunk could be made to fit in a 1300? It would be shorter and require some rework of the bed but would the hardware work? I think the only difference is the length of the side windows. I might try to see if the hardware could be shipped to Vancouver and then I could work on adapting all the other stuff. Thanks for any info.

Chris

It would take some welding. The windows on a 1300 are a couple of inches narrower then the 4500 windows. You would have to cut the side supports to make them shorter. There really is not much wiggle room. The plywood frames are no more the 2" wide. The bed itself may need to be made smaller. The dinette / bed on the 4500 is a bit wider then the dinette / bed in the 1300. It should be noted that the bunk in question is really only suitable for children. I am sure a couple of adults would break it.
