Overhead Cab Safety Net

My wife and I are new here. Please forgive me if this is an old question or belongs in another forum.

We are in the process of purchasing a new Isata 3 with a bunk over the cab. Can someone recommend a product that will protect our younger grandchildren from falling out of the bed as well as keep items stored above the cab from falling while the motorhome is in motion?

Welcome. I know that at least a couple members have created safety nets or railings for kids or grand kids. I think Brian Clemens from Dynamax posted some pictures of what they were designing for this purposed. I did a quick search of the forum and couldn't find the threads. Hopefully we'll get a response from someone who can or has done a modification like this.

We've always used those fold up frames for bunk beds...the ones where you slide the legs under the mattress and it has the upright with netting on it. Always kept the G-kids from falling out of the bunks in our TT's. We stacked Totes on them when traveling and never had anything fall out.

That post is here.....
First new part inspired by the Rally (thanks to MouseHouse)

We designed a very light aluminum bunk rail and bracket that is removable.

When our kids were young, we used something similar to this webbing. We attached it permanently to the front edge of the bunk. We then wove a 3/8" polly rope across the top edge and had hooks on each wall to keep it up when needed. It was a simple solution to keep the kids in and was easy to conceal under the mattress when not in use.

We had similar concerns for our grandchildren and ordered cabover netting through our dealer I believe they got it from Forest River

Our Coachmen Freelander came with the net. The drop in part of the bed needs to be in place and the top of the net has seat belt like connectors to attach to the ceiling. Not sure if you want to have the drop in, in place while you are driving though.
