Safety nets

Hello Georgetown Experts,

Iím wondering if there are specific safety nets for the drop-down bunk to keep my grandkids from rolling out over any of the four sides? Thereís a lot of space around the front and sides and I donít see any way to connect any sort of protective netting.

We have a 2021 Georgetown GT7.

Thanks!

Ours does not have any real gap on the driver or passenger sides. Yours does?

For the one in front near the windshield we just don't lower the bunk all the way to close up that slot a bit.

No grandkids yet so the entry side (rear) is not a problem yet.

FYI, if you decide to carry the ladder on the bunk itself there is only one safe way to do it. Lay the ladder down so the "hooks" are facing down and wrap the hooks around the edge of the mattress. Then take those factory-supplied pillows off the bed and lay them on top of the ladder to keep the ladder from banging up into the ceiling panel as you're driving. You will end up with black marks or gouges in the ceiling panel otherwise.

Thanks. Yeah, the littlest of them could really fit between the three sides.

I'd probably be turning the dinette into a bed each night or putting sleeping bags on the floor myself. I'd also be worried about one falling down trying to use the ladder to get to the bathroom at night. Little kids can be quite resourceful.

I agree. The mini pip will slide off easily. I'll put them in the King with me and the husband can take the bunk.
