Default Removed the bunk, raised the shelf and added a swing railing.

Well the first major mod on by 189FBR was to get rid of the bunk bed. I ended up raising the remaining shelf about 10 inches and adding a swing railing.

Wow! Looks good! The swing down railing makes it easy to access!

Looks great Twinster ! Your thoughts on the bunk bed was similar to mine. I just took it out completely, and made a teakwood shelf over at the streetside that runs from the front wall back to the wall there. Your version looks nicer and more "finished" than mine.

I think having the bunk out of there "opens it up" visually, making it seem bigger inside.

All I keep on the shelf is extra blankets, etc.

Would LOVE to do this, but, alas, can't until "grands" get bigger and can no longer fit there or don't want to do with grandpa & grandma anymore��. And yes, this does make it look so much "bigger", at least in the picture!

We use it as is. It is very handy for bulky items like small appliances, that you want to store out of sight. But different strokes for different folks as they say. We are short people and I don't have a problem with the bunk on my side of the bed.

Super! Every once in a while, I consider removing my upper bunk.

We removed the bunk and put in a cargo netting for the bedding -- but that swing down railing sure looks nicer than my sloppy netting!

looks real sweet... took off my bunk just for the additional head room, makes it feel bigger inside, will probably replace when my grandson get a little older and comes camping with grandma and grandpa.

Looks fantastic, well done. I've been tossing around this idea myself.
