We purchased our EggCamper
in 2013 with the full bed in the back option that included a street side dinette. In 2014 we decided to modify our EggCamper
to have twin bunks. We met with Jim Palmer at the EggCamper
manufacturing facility and he gave us some advice and instructions on how we could do this.
1. We removed the full mattress and Marty removed the hinges from the wood full bed support. We left just the rear portion to support the rear twin bunk.
2. For the second bunk, Marty built a mattress platform of plywood that included an enclosure and door for additional storage under the bunk.
3. We purchased 4" thick high density foam from a custom mattress factory. They cut the queen size foam in half lengthwise for us. We also purchased a queen size 2" thick memory foam and cut this in half lengthwise. We used spray adhesive to attach the memory foam to the high density foam. Sally sewed cloth covers with sleeping bag zipper. We use the thick foam shelf liner under the bunk mattresses to prevent slipping. For the rear bunk, Sally made 2 narrow pillows out of a scrap of foam we got from the mattress manufacturer. This keeps the rear mattress in place. We purchased twin size knit sheets that work very well on these bunks. During the day we fold the blankets and put them and our pillows in pillow covers that Sally made. This makes the beds into daybed couches for seating. To increase "counter space" during meal preparation, we use sheets of marine vinyl on the bunks to cover the mattresses.
4. Creating the second bunk eliminated the dinette. But there is room on each side for a seat. We create a dinette with a foldable table and foldable foot stools to rest our feet. Sometimes we just eat on trays.
