Rv remodel

I have a rockwood roo ikss. Honestly , we really love it. Tons of storage, space etc. however I would really like bunk beds for my 10 and 12 year old. Is there anyone (a business) that could take off the back end of the camper and extend it about 20 inches? Unfortunately I think this is a project beyond my diy skills. Btw we live in Tyler texas if that helps.

Thanks

Sorry, but there is NO ONE that can SAFELY do an extension like youíre describing. NO ONE, NOWHERE.

If your present rig canít give you the space and layout you need/want, you have to start looking again at what the market offersÖ..used or new.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but good luck. Iím sure whatever youíre looking for, itís out there somewhere.

Would they be ok sleeping in a tent placed alongside the Roo?

Moved thread from the General Community Discussion section to the Roo/Shamrock sub-forum since the OP's questions are specific to a Roo model and not a general question.

I can't imagine that process would yield anything safe that you'd want to camp in (let alone tow, considering the weight you'd be adding to the back). If you love the Roo, I'd suggest that you'd be much better off looking at the 233 floorplan, with three tent beds.

Likewise, your 10- and 12-year olds won't be bunk bed sized for long. You'd be better off keeping the 23IKSS as-is and letting one sleep on the table on in a tent outside, while waiting for the inevitable progression towards the teen years, and less desire to camp.

Just my opinion, home this helps.

Sofa and dinette are "sleepable" for people of the stature of mist 10-12 year olds. Not sure why the queen bed isn't good for both.

My thought would be that would cost more than selling your unit and finding a floorplan that works for your needs.

I've heard of people turning the dinette area into bunk beds, but you'd lose the dinette and the children might or might not fit the beds.
