We purchased the expensive rails at babiesrus. They work wonderfully. And easy to out up and down. Am I the only one that thinks the way the ladders are, that they are hardly usable? Not to mention hard to make the beds as well.... (We own a 351ds)

Otr semis use both seatbelts and netting for the upper bunk and seatbealts only for lower berth. Seatbelts meaning lap belts. Maybe something like that will help. Julianos is a good source for lapbelts as would be most auto restortion dealers. Depending on their age, the netting may be a better choice.

I lean toward this suggestion...just as a "think safety" RN.
I wouldn't go netting as fingers and toes can get caught....seen it bad.
I would support 100% something truly kid approved. Restraining anyone is dangerous, but so is a fall. Using something make-shift, not kid approved, is asking for unintentional accidents. I would also support making a bed on the ground till they are old enough to handle it.
Just do research. I would also support having a ladder available rather than having them invent ways to get down when you're not around to go potty or whatever.

We use the same or similar. We didn't need all the pieces, and it has worked quite well.

We made a double rail unit out of pine 1x3's. 2 horizontal boards screwed to 2 vertical boards. The verticals are screwed into the bunk face board and a small L bracket attached to the wall edge to keep it from wobbling. Works well. Never had a fall off.

Found a crib rail - as opposed to a bed rail that is working. The only other issue is the lip of the bunk. Trying to be careful not to put too much outward pressure on it. May put a piece of wood there to offset the pressure and raise the rail.

I'd say standard bed rails from Wally World might work. Can't find a good image of the bunk area of your rig on the interweb so just guessing.

I would strongly recommend against using the bunk in motion. A good old child safety seat is the only safe way to go for snoozing then. The rig may be big as a truck but it can stop with a lot of G's in and accident and having the young one properly secured is the only way to go.
