Adding brackets to RV bunks

This is my first “how to” video ever!  It’s not awesome.  You will be underwhelmed when you see the video.  Just a fair warning!

Our middle son sleeps in the top bunk in our RV.  The bunk says it has a 150 pound weight limit.  We thought we’d have many years left in that bunk.  But not even a year in, the bunk started bowing/sagging underneath.  Our son is well below the 150 pound weight limit at 90 pounds.  This was a very simple project.

What you’ll need

  • 2 pieces of 1×3 the length of the bunk
  • wood screws
  • drill
  • wood glue
  • angle iron (but we have yet to put the angle iron on ours)

How to

  • Form a 90 degree angle ‘L’ with the 2 pieces of board
  • Use wood glue and screws to secure pieces together
  • Place ‘L’ with one board along the backside of the bunk and the other along the bottom
  • Secure with screws
  • Put angle iron along the verticle

Here’s my video!  Ian explains exactly what he did at the end…
