Is this considered a bunk house or a double decker?

Separate entrances, so I’d say it’s an apartment building.

That's actually an efficient use of a very small trailer. Kids sleep up top?

I don't imagine that they just "give" those tractors away, either.

No pics but today I saw what appeared to be a custom-built Ford SuperDuty flat-bed with tool boxes on the sides, sort of like a utility work truck. The owner had a truck camper on it. The tool boxes were the same height as the bed sidewalls would be. The camper fit perfectly and the tool boxes provided lots of extra storage.

When I saw it later the camper was standing on its own, making the truck usable for transportation. Are those legs stable enough that you can live in it when it's off the truck? Or is that only to allow removing it from the truck?

X2
The one we had was stable enough to be in when off the truck.
It had jacks on all 4 corners.
It was a mini apartment for visiting friends.

My parents had one that had two jacks on one side and a single, third jack in the middle on the opposite side. It got a little tipsy with that set-up.

That makes them more versatile than I thought they were.
