Adding a temp bunk above dinette?

Looking at a Scamp 16 and we have a family of 3 . Id love to reserve the bunk area or front dinette (if its Deluxe A) for sitting as we have both night owls and early birds but that means I need a place for my 5 foot tall teen. Has anyone see mods where a temporary bunk or hammock is added at night above the rear dinette? Id imagine youd need to have supports against the fiberglass walls. HOvering above the rear dinette. Make sense? Thanks!

Tents work good for children.

Adding a temp bunk above dinette?

I've seen it done for a small child, but not for a teen. To support the weight., it'd have to have some vertical supports, making the already cramped dinette bed even tighter. It'd be a pain to set up and take down, and the pieces have to be stowed somewhere.

We have the same issue. I'm the early-to-bed, early riser in our family of 4 in a Scamp 13. I take the lower bunk. It's cave-like, so I can sleep while the rest of the crew stays up reading, cross-stitching, or watching a movie on a tablet.

In the morning I make coffee on our camp stove outside and sit or go for a walk while the others sleep. If the weather's nasty- a rare event- I can sit and read in the tow vehicle, maybe catch some news on the radio.

The trailer is our bedroom. The outdoors is our living room.

A Clam shelter with wind panels makes a nice outdoor sitting area if bugs or rain are an issue.
