was just talking about this today. We didn't plan for how much our 14YO grew this past year. May have to do this next year.

Nice Job!

Just so I’ve got this right....

You had factory bunk beds? The upper bunk looked narrower than the bottom, probably just camera angle. Bottom bunk was narrow enough there was a folding table beside it.
You now replaced them with one much wider bed at the height of the bottom of the larger window. No room for a folding table beside, but much wider for one person? No more upper bunk.

I like it! good work! looks like it will be easier to access both the top and bottom bunks. Add an access door of some type to get into the space below the bottom bunk.

You did a great job. Looks more manageable and assessable. Resale value wonít decrease at all. I did lots of mods that changed the floor plan and I got my purchase price back when I traded it in.

Although most donít buy with the intent to sell, all sell eventually, even if they die before a deal is done.

My question stands, how do DIY mods change the value of an RV? Is it the same as cars and real estate? Is it better to keep things stock or modify?
