You cannot beat the the price of this bed. I debated on the twin bunk, twin w/futon and this one (with twin on top and full on bottom), which was the winner. This is a great option because it gives the kids room to play/watch TV on the bottom bunk or sleep 2 on the bottom, while still having more space up top. The bed is for my 4yr old son who wanted a Nascar themed room. The beautiful pine twin bunk beds I had chosen would NOT look so great with a racing theme. I was hesitant to choose this set because it looked cheap to me. It is really nice, solid and goes great in the room. It does wobble a tiny bit when climbing up, but is sturdy once there. I can't speak to set up as my husband did that. I did hear some yelling and frustrated sounds coming from the room - but that is typical when setting up anything big. Overall, very happy and would totally recommend this bed. Great value for the what we got.
This is a really good set of bunkbeds. I bought these for my girls who are 8 and 12. They are very sturdy and with memory foam mattresses we bought from Overstock, my girls are very comfortable in them. We only have two complaints about the beds which are what lowered the rating. There are an enormous amount of parts. I believe my husband counted over 300. He also said the directions weren't the best, but he was able to get together ok. However, it took a long time. He had to stop twice and go back later to finish. My other complaint might be a plus for some. The railing on the top bunk goes all the way around without breaks where the ladders are. I am sure this is because this model has ladders at each end. This does make it more difficult for the child to get out of bed. My 8 year old was not comfortable with this in the beginning, but with practice is doing better.
This is a treat Bunkbed, especially for the price. It came unassembled, but only took a couple of hours to put together. It's very sturdy and looks attractive. My 12-year-old boy loves it!!

This product is phenomenal at the price. It is attractive, durable and relatively easy to put together - even with two 7 years old boys lurking about asking if it's finished yet every two minutes. From an engineering standpoint some minor improvements could be made: Providing an opening of some sorts in the top bunk rail, thus eliminating a child from having to raise his or her leg that much higher after climbing the ladder; a side rail for one side of the bottom bunk (the one that runs parallel to the top); and finally, some kind of padding for the rails on the top bunk....just in case a kid's head misses the pillow. FYI to parents - I resolved the last, perhaps most significant concern by using copper pipe insulation. It fit perfectly and is easy to put on and take off. Despite those comments, the bed was well worth its price and has made my sons excited and happy. Go for it!
This bunk bed took 3 hrs to setup by myself. For the price it's pretty good.

This was a great deal for a nice bunk bed! The feature of having the twin over double is awesome. My younger boy can go up top and be happy and my older boy can take the bigger bed and is equally satisfied. I was even laying on the top bed and the bed didn't even bend or sag. This is a very well designed and constructed bunk bed. I will recommend this to others.
The first shipment came damaged but Overstock got it picked up quickly especially since it weighed 100 plus pounds. The second shipment arrived undamaged with all its parts. From previous reviews I knew it was going to contain 100s of pieces and the instructions were lacking. I would equate putting this bed together to doing a jigsaw puzzle with the wrong picture on the box. The instruction wording is ok but the pictures lack important details like where the holes are in relationship to the diagram. Needless to say several times I had to take assembled parts apart. In spite of what the manufacturer says do not tighten the hex nuts since when you go to a step or two later you will have to loosen the hex nuts to fit the next piece to it. The absolutely worst thing about this bed is the item "Plastic Tab Lock", this part holds the mattress support rails in place, there are 44 support rails, needing 88 of the tap locks, the manufacturer sends you 94 but the plastic is so cheap that the tap breaks. The instruction state "it may be necessary to apply more pressure to some plastic tab locks than others". This translated to needing a rubber mallet on half the tabs. Now that it is together it looks great. Time to put together 5-6 hours with plenty of expletives only when dealing with the "Plastic :Lock Tab". The double bed easily supports both a box spring and mattress. Is it worth the price, yes! But expect it to be a project to put togehter
Overall, we are very happy with this bed! We put it together about 2 weeks ago which was time consuming. My husband and I worked on it together, and other than the directions not being very clear, it wasn't that bad. It took us about 3.5 hours to complete because there were so many pieces and because we had to take some of the pieces apart after realizing we had put them in backwards. Better directions would have been appreciated, but we figured it out. I am glad there were so many pieces to the bed. It feels very secure even though it shakes a little when then move around. The bed is the best looking bunk bed I have ever seen. We have a very small room and its sleek design fits the room perfectly (no ladder sticking out the side and no extra steps or drawers). My favorite part is the very tall rail around the top. I feel like my children ages 4 and 6 are safe when they sleep up there. Also, the bottom bed is very low to the ground which is great for my little one and leaves plenty of room between the bunks. Because of the low price of this bed, I was very nervous to see what the quality would be like. I am greatly pleased with the looks, quality, and price of this bed!!!!!

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The bed is made very well with many slats under the matresses and great sleek design. My only complaint about quality is the screws. They become stripped very easily, so try not to mess up and have to take them out and put them back in. Also, it shakes around when the kids move around the top bunk but seems to be very strong.

I bought these bunk beds for my 5 and 7 yr old boys and they LOVE it! It was fairly easy to put together, my sister-in-law and I did it, and it seems pretty sturdy, especially with my boys hanging off of the top bunk railing every time I turn around (they don't ever use the ladder). I've only had them about 2 months, but they appear to be holding up great, they look fantastic, and I am VERY happy with this purchase!!
