Where to buy bunk beds that fold up for toy hauler

Looking to convert a cargo trailer to a quasi toy hauler and want to put in a bunk bed over the rear ramp door. Looking for the kind that is on tracks and 2 queen beds lower down from the ceiling at the push of the button.

They come in many of the toy haulers but I cant seem to find a place to buy the whole mechanism that bolts to the walls.

Anybody have an idea where to find them ?

Thanks

Camo

There are some others I've ran across too but they are from manufacturers that make them for builds in houses. Other than what you found and what I've run across beds like these are much more popular in European countries.

Maybe try calling some of the toy hauler manufacturers and see if they'll divulge the manufacturers?

Happijak is the unit I saw at our local trailer place in the back of a toyhauler. Pretty trick, thinking I need one for the man-cave.



Edit: just saw Camo's link, woa, pricey!

Someone made a really nice, fold up bunk bed. Was pretty simple like you'd buy, just Pbb/DIY style.. It was posted in a build several months back...

That HappiJack looks trick.. Wonder if you could make something similar low budget.... Ideas??

And that $1600 is only the frame work and up and down mechanism. It doesn't include the matress platform/frame or the mattress.

It is still the best solution I have seen for my needs though, looks like this is going to be a costly project if I decide to go this route

Your thread title is misleading.

Having never seen anything like that before, I was expecting a bed to fold up against a wall...

That is an awesome setup though, very nice that you can store the bed with all the bedding in place.

Should be easy enough to make four "lifting rails" similar to screw drive garage door openers:

http://www.google.ca/imgres?q=garage...t:429,r:10,s:0

Just need to find the right aluminum extrusion, which shouldn't be hard, and some high grade ready-rod or acme threaded rod.

Edit: Thomas and Betts Unistrut (superstrut) would work well for this:

http://www.google.ca/imgres?q=supers...1t:429,r:7,s:0

It's steel, galvanized and similar to sliding garage door rails, so you may be able to buy carriages that fit inside.


Not sure how much time you want to dedicate to this, but with the price of the lift in your link it may be worthwhile to ghetto-fab something.

For a better price call these guys

Tri State Surplus

Dont put them where your tires on the wheeler set, its to tight if you have full width axles and less than 4 inches of backspacing on your wheels.
