I am a single parent, currently living in a small Guest House with my son. I had been hoping to move, but financially it was not possible, therefore I had to maximize my space and had been thinking long and hard about bunk beds for us. I reviewed bunkbeds for a year, both on-line and in stores, but just could not find the right bed. I saw this one on Overstock.com and on other websites (same mfg co.). I got this bed in 5 days, and I cannot tell you how pleased I am! While I agree with other reviewers that assembly was not so easy - because of the amount of hex screws in it and amount of pieces to put together (took my ex and I 8 hours) - this bed was worth every day I didn't purchase one and every minute of assembly. The steel is of high quality, the hex bolt and washers are very large and are a nice tight fit in all the holes. The steel bars that hold the mattresses are slatted in and then held with hardware to keep them from coming up. The space between the full bottom and the twin top is nice (I am 5'6" and fit sitting up with head room). The other feature that impressed me was the height of the top bars to keep my 5-year old from falling out. I had also worried about this with the height of mattresses, but the height from the bottom of the mattress to the top is at least 1-foot. I purchased the 6-inch foam mattress for his top bunk, and it has still left well over 6 inches to keep him from falling over. The bars go around 100% without gaps. The bed does not creek and when he climbs up, it does not move, Very, very sturdy. The bottom bunk support has extra supporting t-bars and does not move. I put my existing full size 10" mattess on the bottom, and it worked perfectly. The bed does not make one noise when I get in or move and I am not a skinny girl - I am a size 16. The bed looks beautiful! It was worth the one year wait in patience for the right bed (and price!). Overstock.com's price was at least $75.00 less than some other on-line sites, who also then charge $50 shippng and CA tax at 10% for this bed. This is truly the best bang for the buck, (or bunk :) and I would do the 8 hour assembly all over again. Thanks Overstock.com for selling such a great bed at a super price!
Very pleased with this bed. My daughter loves it. Easy to put together; the reviews were right on about this and I purchased the 10 inch XL Memory Foam mattress for the top and the 8 inch one for the trundle and both fit perfectly. It does take a good 24 hours for the mattresses to expand; when I first put them on the bed I was nervous thinking they didn't fit the next morning they had expanded out of the box to the proper fit. VERY SATISFIED. Would buy this again if I need a 2nd one. Interestingly enough it wasn't too hard to find sheets and such to fit the bed. I purchases XL Twin set locally and then found a beautiful paisley grey and white fleece throw which was 50' x 72' and it fits perfectly and lands just above the trundle. Not too big; not too small.
