Ah... good times. hehehe....
From the lower bunk, I could press my feet up against the bottom of the top bunk, and straighten my knees. I would lift my brother, mattress and all, up about 6 inches and really startle him. When my older cousin visited once, he insisted on taking the top bunk, and I did it to him too. Completely freaked him right out.

Yeah.. good times.

In our caravan, (?travel trailer thingie), my sister got the top "hammock" bunk and I was so pissed about the unfairness of it I used to kick her butt all night. One night I kicked too hard and she and the metal pole that fitted in cups on the wall to form the edge of the hammock landed on me.

Nice bed, btw -the mattress supports look like they're laced to another long strip -is that right? Or do the roll up like Ikea mattress supports?

thank you!

the mattress supports, the slats that are perpendicular to the long axis of teh bed, they're lashed to a semicircular half pole. it is quite rigid. the "panels", they're as strong and rigid as a tabletop in all axes.

thanks all of you for your kind words and terrifying stories...

I had no idea that I had so much company with these childhood death traps.
