Casita deluxe bunk bed

Hi all. Noob casita and camper here. Having a family of 4 a bunk bed was a must for us. So after looking at some pics and reading a little I decided to build one of my own. I used heavy duty curtain rods cut to 2 foot pieces and heavy duty rod brackets. I riveted the brackets to the storage area under the cushions for the bottom part of the poles and the top part the bracket is screwed into 3/4 plywood. Just getting started, need to reinforce the plywood a little, because it has a little bend when my 5 year old jumps around up there. Thinking about making a ladder that doubles as a support.

Sorry the picture is sideways.

Nice job. Thank you for sharing your project and for the picture. Shaun, you now can change the "Trailer" from in market to Casita.
Happy Trails

I used 3/4" ply and door hinges. It is strong enough to hold my weight with the original supports. My ladder just hooks onto the railing.
