Nice idea, I wonder if you would slide a dowel inside of the PVC if that would help the flex

I'm sure a dowel would definitely take the flex out of it. It would just need it on the sides, the rungs are pretty solid.

Where did you get that curtain? I've been struggling to find a solution for mine.

The curtains came with it. I thought they all came with them.

No curtain came with my 2014 264BH. I've been looking for an aftermarket solution.

Sorry, was camping and didn't have internet. I used metal L brackets and screwed them to the ladder and the bunk frame under the mattresses.

If you are looking to make one like I did, I used 2x3 studs for the sides and 1" dowels for the rungs. I used a bore bit and drilled the holes and glued the rungs in. I used metal L brackets as said above. I put wedges on the left hand side at the bunk so it didn't go in against the curved bunk - keeps the bunk from sticking out between the rungs and making it difficult to climb up.

No problem. I was going to just use heavy duty hooks and mount them upside down so they sit on the inside lip of the bed frame. I wanted it to be removed so I could climb under the bottom bunk to access valves etc..

Because my kids are small, I wanted it solid mounted. There is still plenty of room to get into the bottom bunk - I climb in to say goodnight to my son. I climb up on the ladder to say goodnight to my daughter too.

Made one similar for my last camper. I used 1x4's for the sides and 3/4 dowels for the rungs...I think. The only thing I did different was I drilled holes all the way through the wood and glued the dowels in. No nails, brads, etc. Once the glue set, the dowels weren't going anywhere. The kids used that ladder for 6 years before I sold the trailer.
