OK, I think I figured it out. My bunk had a strap that snaps to the bunk floor on each side, with an adjustable tension clasp. Problem is I couldn't get enough tension with the strap to hold the bunk cushion in place without it sliding down and collapsing all in a big blob inside because the strap snaps would pop whenever I placed the needed tension on the strap. So I simply unscrewed the male snap on bunk and placed strap ends over the hole and re-screwed male snap on bunk door. Now the straps are permanently affixed to bunk allowing me to place the necessary tension on the cushion. I placed the folding tent bar inside the folded mattress. I then laid out evenly the tent neatly laying the sides over top of tent roof. I avoided any bunching up and tried my best at spreading as much material evenly as I could across the whole mattress. I also tucked some of the tent under the mattress so it wouldn't slide down.
When I closed the bunk hatch what I ended up with as a clean appearing un-bunched stowage of the front bunk assembly.
Ahaha...victory is mine!!!
