How to add sleeping bed for grandaughter

I don’t want to do the dinette dismantle. Is there an available bunk/bed add-on? Any clever mods for over th bed?

In the 19 and 17 you can get a cot like bunk over the dinette.

It is an add-on at the build stage, as they glass support blocks to the shell before installing the liner inside. You could do it after, but to use their bunk, you would need to somehow install this support.

Under options for the 19 is the word "Cot"

Depending on the age of the child.... I had a small collapsible cot with a short thermarest. It fit in the aisle. I don't know what kind of bed is in the 13, but in nice weather, we also used a thermarest/ sleeping bag on the floor with feet under the bed or dinette. I've also seen contraption made of pvc with a mesh sling.

We went with the cot option when we ordered our 19'. Was well worth the cost. I would rather setup and take down the cot than the dinette table. Plus my daughter prefers sleeping on the cot to the dinette bed anyways.

You could look at one of those Springfield table pedestals so you could just raise and lower the table. Probably would have to move it a few inches away from the front wall though. Would be easier than dealing with the table and posts.
