Bunk bed adjustments

I wanting to remove the stop blocks on the rear Happyjack bunk bed on a 222. Has anyone tried this? I'm wanting to lower the bed down so it would be just above the sofa folded flat. I don't see why you can't but thought I would see if anyone has tried. Thanks

thats on my list as well -

I've looked at it several times and game-planned it, but haven't actually done it yet. The other thing I want to do is make an adjustment in the opposite way as well - actually drill holes about a foot higher than the stop blocks and use some more robust pins at that dedicated height in the same manner as the pins provided for the bunk in its elevated, stored position. The stop blocks are not quite high enough so that people can actually sit on the couches under the bunks while someone lounges/sleeps on the bunk above.

I have the same question. Had a guest my first trip in the Octane and luckily had a step ladder for them to use to get in the bed.

This will not work if my Mother were to come visit me at a campsite. It would be ideal to be able to lower the bed to a normal height.

On my T31B, I had to adjust the stops for more head clearance for sitting at the table. I have also removed them for lowering the bed for easy access. Easy to do, but be careful not to drop the screws down into the lower chain gears.

I guess you just used the dining seating to support the bed? I thought about using some small screws in the lower holes with the stops, but I'm not sure it's necessary. Thanks for your experience.

I removed the stops on my 2018 181 SL and of course I dropped the screw and driver bit into the track. After some panic I raised the seats a bit and discovered an access cover at the bottom of the track allowing me to retrieve my lost parts.

I was thinking about having 4 new stops made that would bolt to the highest setting but would be about 6" longer towards the top to hold it higher. Our kids dont need the head room as much as I do to sit under. And I'm loving the idea to take off completely for older guests. Or even heavy guest that may not enjoy the ladder experience!

Bunk Bed Support

Is the only thing holding the bunk bed up the pins? The previous owner had taken out the stops and the couches and I am trying to figure out how everything fits back in. Thanks!

The pins hold the bunk in the top most location at the ceiling. There is also stops in the tracks for lowering the bunk to the sleeping height.

Do you have a picture of the stops and where they attach? The previous owner just had them on the brackets that the couches ride on. I assume those aren't the stops? Thanks.
