In my Facebook group, RV Interior Ideas, member Susan Ringer caught my attention with a post she made recently. Susan, who is also an occasional guest blogger on different subjects, along with being a fine artist, specializing in watercolor and oils, with a particular passion for nature. She and her husband designed and built something really unique. They were able to take a double bunk area in a travel trailer and turn it into a full-sized adult bed for guests. I sent Susan a message asking her to do a guest blog piece for me on their creation. Below is what she wrote up along with photos of the project.
Make the mattress as comfy as possible! We did a lot to make this remaining sleeping area comfy. First we doubled up the two mattresses, then I added a 3 or 4″ memory foam topper (I trimmed it where you see the angle). Next, I added a thick feather bed topper purchased inexpensively through amazon. On top of all that an old fitted sheet to hold it all together, then a final fitted sheet – a luxurious Ralph Lauren Sateen sheet set purchased on clearance at a local TJ Maxx. Nothing but the best for my guests! Now you are ready to make up the pretty bed!
Susan and her husband did a fantastic job! I have never seen a remodel like this so I wanted to share it in a special post. I thought it was such a unique idea to make. I am sure you are wondering how with the extra height you get into the bed but they are planning on either building some cute steps or get a step stool. I also love the bedding! The whole makeover-renovation makes me just want to crawl into that bed and never leave.
Now for the all important disclaimers. We are not construction, RV or trailer specialists and make no claims or warranties about this project. Do your homework first. If you have any concerns about any impact this renovation may have on your rig, your warranty, etc. please consult the experts. To us, since it was a simple screwed to the wall frame, we saw no issues or impact and weren’t overly concerned about any of the above.”
A little more about Susan:
If you are interested in seeing any of Susan’s work she has her website. She also has social media accounts on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest. She is also going to be making some military themed art work in the future so make sure to follow her on social media to find out when she lists them. I’m sure they will go quickly. In case you’re looking for some patriotic decorum for your RV, travel trailer or camper.
