Here's a picture of the 2 beds in the Safari condo (FLEX models):

I should be able to post pictures of my rough prototype in the next day or so. I have built a single bed over the slide out couch. One of our criteria was ability to carry 5, sleep 3. The RT simplicity has the bed over the front seats, but it is for small children/people. I needed a better solution. Right now, our 12 yo son can sleep on the floor, but that is not ideal for any of us. Some obviously depends on size of kids. We did not go Safari/Winnebego as I was concerned with long trips in what appear to be upright seats in front of the bathroom. Our last trip was 50 hours, 2000 miles, over 11 days, so comfort for long periods in vehicle was needed. With 3 of us, it is a bit crowded and movement must be orchestrated, so depends on size of people and overall needs.

Pictures of prototype bunk bed. Many kinks to still work out but concept is there. One picture shows bunk prototype with couch folded out and pad on floor = 4 people. Fifth could be upfront on bed ( I could sleep there in a pinch at 6', but that is less than desirable). My goal was to be able to sleep 3 comfortably and the bunk will get us there so no one has to move or be tripped over. low cost solution that allows couch usage during normal transit and holds 5 with seatbelts.

Very nice !

We also sleep 5 in a B. A modified Sprinter XL Flex. Everyone has his space.

Day setup
2 adult can seat in the front seat.
2 kids / adults on a small bench just behind to front seat
2 kids / adult on a convertible bench on the back of the van
In the day setup there is a mechanized bed lift just under the cabinet that allow the kids or aldult to have enough head room in the back to be seated.

Night setup
1 kid in the front seat
2 adults on the convertible bench to a queen bed
2 kids on mechanized bed lowered a little bit over the lower queen bench

Perfect setup in a 22' feet Sprinter

The bench go down and make queen-ish size bed, I can setup the height of the upper bed with a switch. So 4 people can squeeze in those two beds. The other place to sleep is over the front seat. I put a small table between the two seats and add put two foam cushions with a solid base that go from one window to the other.
