The Cabbunk Adds An Extra Bed For A Child In Your Motorhome

Class B motorhomes don’t usually have a sleeping area that extends over the cab of the vehicle like Class C motorhomes. What if you could further increase sleeping space in a Class B by adding another bunk inside the cab?

That’s just what UK residents Richard and Jane wanted to do after motorhoming for years.

The couple wanted to take their two grandchildren along on camping trips, but struggled to find a place for them to sleep inside their smaller motorhome.

With some tinkering, Richard found a way to attach a bunk system to the swivel seats in his camper. He filed a European patent for the system, and now markets his company’s product, the Cabbunk. The Cabbunk is available for the Ford Transit, Fiat Ducato, and Mercedes Sprinter models.

The company says that it takes just 25 seconds to setup, and you won’t have to sacrifice your sleeping space for kids anymore 😉

The Cabbunk fits all swivel seat cabs.

The Cabbunk looks like it could save space in a Class B or C motorhome. I’ve always wondered why an in-cab sleeping area wasn’t an option on certain motorhomes. You could probably use the bunk as a storage space as well. Maybe the company will come up with a model with drawers or dividers in the future.

The twin bunk model shown above retails for £269 (about $410). If you’re not too excited about that price, you could always make your own.

How do you think the Cabbunk would fit in with your lifestyle?
