Adding a top bunk to 17' Boler

I just purchased a 1977 17' Boler and would like to modify the sleeping area to allow a set of bunks. Has anyone added a top bunk (permanent or temporary) to a 17' Boler? I would like to add one, preferably a removable one, to the sleeping area that was the couch section so to allow my two children to join me on my adventures. It doesn't seem like it would be difficult to do but I need some ideas from people who are "handy" as I am not and will need to find someone in British Columbia to help me make this happen. Any help / ideas would be appreciated

Thanks in advance!
Kim

Could you post a picture of where you want to add the bunk?

Thatís a great idea! I was thinking if that too. Here are some photos I found from one of the companies that either refurbishes / does their own small fibreglass trailers (canít remember which).

We have a rear gaucho boler 17. This is how our rear bunk came. There is a full length and width piece of thin plywood/paneling the goes over the fold down cabinet section so the doors don't open under someone.

Hi Lisa, Can you post any more pictures of the back of your Boler? We too have a 17í, and someone told me it was originally a ďgauchoĒ, though it has already had a shoddy reno and so the original bed isnít there. I really like that couch though! We donít have that. How big of a bed does the couch turn into? Our modern reno kicks off early Sept and Iím still working on the plans, but would appreciate to see how they originally had it.
