TC's in general are all hard to get into and out of the bunk. Some actually have a step, most don't. Our's is especially bad, it's a pretty long leg reach to get to the lower step from the bunk, especially at night when nature calls at 3am and it's pitch dark. You compound the issue when someone is sleeping in the lower convertible dinette bunk. The it becomes an exercise in not stepping on the person down below.
I know, I need a hoist to get in bed right.....
