Default bunk beds

My wife and I are recently retired and want to travel. Our search for an RV has evolved from looking at slide-ins, class B and B+, then class C, and now we're back to the Bs. Travelling light seems more practical, as long as we can haul bikes. The Travato is our current favorite, especially the 59K.
My question: are bunk beds available on any class B? Seems like a way to free up a lot of room.
Thanks for anyone's help.
Rob

Safari Condo has an XL Flex model with with elevating rear bed that provides inside storage for bikes and other gear underneath. It uses the same 21ft Promaster chassis as Winnebago's Travato.

https://safaricondo.com/en/motorises...-xl21-xl-flex/

The XL Flex has a larger bed and gear storage but smaller bathroom compared to the Travato.

Forum member AlexJ has an XL Flex with a sliding storage tray for up to four bikes. Perhaps he can post additional details and pics.

It's a tradeoff. The queen/king bed may be more romantic but twin beds are more practical and IMO is the better way to go. If you opt for twin beds, you have to check their width. The Crossifts are 23 inches which IMO is unacceptable. Any Sprinter twin will be 25 inches and if you move around much when sleeping, it's tight. The 59K and the Chevy 210PC have 30 inch beds which makes them clear winners in this regard.

Unless you want to travel with a kayak or a couple of bikes between them, in which case the narrow aisle of the 59K is a bit of a problem.

Per Safari Condo as of Monday 10/15/2018, 6:50 AM
First of all we would like to thank you for the interest you have shown for our products. By the same token, I would like to inform you that we are a small business and that there may be production delays due to our production capacity for this unique high quality product. Wait time is presently 16 months on Safari Condo built.

We can only sell a conversion to US residents.
That means that you would have to provide the truck. We then send you a list of options (the recipe) to purchase the truck in the US and drive it here so we complete the conversion and you drive it back home.

That is the way it goes with new trucks. Conversion will roughly run for about 40,000$ to 60,000$ CAD depending on model and truck size.
We presently don’t have every model in inventory. We are now at that time of year where most trucks are sold and the ones being produced are sold units.
Used unit may be sold in the USA without restriction. Currently none in stock.

For further information, please contact Daniel Perron (daniel.perron@safaricondo.onmicrosoft.com ) or François Laforest (Francois.Laforest@safaricondo.ca) , it will be their pleasure to answer you.

I know it's an old thread, but maybe it will be a timely resurrection for someone


We have just ordered one, our 4yo was still (quite happily) in a cot so it’s time for a big bed.

We could have had 2 beds like all this types https://10restbest.com/best-loft-bed...dults-and-kids but they would have minimal space to play and then the toys end up all over the house.

Here’s my pro/con list:

Pro:
More room to play and move around in.
Certain bunk beds allow you to have a trundle underneath (this is the one we got) so we can use this for sleepovers etc.
Alternatively you can get the one with a single on top and double down the bottom which also helps

Cons:
The one we got is a traditional bunk bed, so it’s going to be a royal PITA to change the sheets on the top bunk. I guess, you can always get the new style where the bottom bunk sits lower to the floor and then it’s easy to reach the top one.
My concern for the low rise/new style bunks is that the bottom bunk would feel cold over winter, because you’re almost sleeping on the floor.
Eventually they’re gonna get sick of sharing a bunk/grow out of it so proper beds will be required in the future.

I hope that helps a bit. We get ours delivered soon so hopefully it works for us!

Just some suggestions and one good video from Youtube, that I hope will help.
