Here's another option for you ... Put a substantial screw in hook or eyebolt in the wall under the cabinets and another in the opposite wall. as high as you can. Hang a hammock between the hooks. You could duck under to make a bathroom run and it would come down in the morning. When I wqas a kid, I used to love sleeping in a hammock tied to two trees out in the open in a sleeping bag. It takes a bit of getting used to but here he would just fall on his brother and not get hurt.

How about letting him sleep in a tent? cheaper easier and most kids prefer that to being in the RV with the parents..

I considered building a bunk on legs to stand on my parents' folded down dinette so they could take both my daughters camping with them. This way it could be easily removed with screws or damage to the trailer.

I say go for it! Just take down that overhead cabinet and cut it right so that it does look funny. I'd buy a prefabbed bunk bed like this (see link below), and take the old couch out. Then just bolt the bed frame to the floor.
Better then a new trailer payment. Silver Screen Bunk Bed - Contemporary - Bunk Beds - by Home Source Industries
