My bunk has a strap on the other end of the bed with a clip even if that latch were to come undone the strap should prevent the bed from coming down. obviously traveling with it down is the easiest sure thing here.

I want to follow up on this issue....I emailed various Forest River folks and inquired about purchasing some of the wall paper explaining what had happened. I want to fill the gouge in & paper over it.....well when we returned from a week of travel ( 3 different campgrounds) with our Crusader 5er I found UPS had left a mailer tube on the porch from FR with more than enough wallpaper I need...N/C! I will tackle the job myself avoiding the 1 hr. trip to the dlr.

All I can say is Forest River will always be #1 with me!!!! Great customer service!!!

If you don't have anything in there that requires them to be up why would you put them up? The only time i had ours up on our old trailer was to use it for the storage.

And definitely a "way to go" to Forest River!
