Question Overhead bed

Is there a railing or someway to keep kids from falling out of the bed above the seats in the front of a Solera Class C

Haven't seen one made specifically but I've seen folks using the same ones sold in the stores for regular beds. Base slides under the mattress. Safety First I think was the brand name of the one I had for my kids years ago but never tried it in an rv.

We thought of a safety first one, but only the problem is it can not slide under the centre section where the mattress does not lift up.

Do you know the price on that net. Can't seem to find a link to a store from the info contained in your post. Thanks

You could screw that safety first onto the bottom....it has a wood backer.

Also put the foam wedges in under the sheets, also sleep them the other direction, also do the dual twins instead of the overhead bed. Lots of options

We're working on a net option as well. We looked at the Coachmen one and I don't like them. #1. if you need to get out quickly and they are little kids...those seatbelt buckles are on the ceiling. Need to be more accessible.
#2 when the net is down, those metal seatbelt brackets are hanging from the ceiling. Doesn't look good.

We proto-typed a net that goes wall to wall. If you take it down, there is nothing left but two little metal anchors.

Would that net be standard or an extra charge if it goes past prototyping?
