Yes, the step stool inserted against the bathroom wall and just under the mattress works well for us. Pictures attached

We also use a three step folding ladder. Didn't want to mount anything to block the opening of the bunks for when the kids get older.

Our step is not mounted. It is free standing and safely works when you apply pressure with your foot. It fits flush to wall, with a small "foot" under mattress.

When we travel or open bottom bunk I simply pull it. No tools required.

I like that foothold. Was trying to figure out how to mount one to the side of the closet wall on our 254, but with only the thin panelling I knew it would be strong enough. Now I have an idea. For our first trip I used part of a pool ladder sitting on the bottom queen bunk. Worked ok, but takes up space. Not a huge issue since normally only our son sleeps on the bottom.

Hey Jammer, I really like the idea of the top bunk ladder system you worked out and plan on putting a carbon copy together this week. My question was what color did you go with for the stain job and did you use a clear coat? I have the "Coffee" interior but I would assume the interior wood stain from the factory would be the same as any 28DSBH. Thanks, any information is appreciated.

I like the ladder pictures. Thanks

Has anyone contemplated cutting an access through the top bunk and building a ladder or stairs against the back wall? Like a fireman pole but with a ladder. You could even get fancy and use a trapdoor if you were worried about a sleeping child going through the hole.

We have a 281BHS that has a similar bunk layout to the pictured ones.

If I ever get adventurous (or enough free time) I may attempt this one and will document it. I think the kids would love it. Just like the trap door in the tree house!

Or drop down stairs like an attic! Just thought of that one.

Cheers

Hello! Sorry, haven't been on in a while. I think I used a cherry all-in-one stain, so it's stain and varnish in one. I used a matte finish, and it matched up pretty well. Still holding up!
