    So nobody loses sleep over it, you can see the light from the glass in the pic that’s facing back towards the entry door where the bunks are. The door allows access to under the bottom bunk for storage since there’s no “pass thru”

    Yes, that's the one! I'm so intrigued by it.

    Behind that door is the bunk, on mine you can open it from the inside. The lower bunk flips up for storage or carrying bikes. It is really handy for loading. I usually carry a canopy, chairs, outside stove and luggage. I have to watch the weight since it can significantly increase the tongue weight.

    Ok, Orchid as requested...
    You can access the bunk or the storage by opening the door;

    And as mentioned the bottom bunk is on a hinge for bike storage or taller items

    I love it! So unique and so much better than just putting a hatch there! One of my favorite campers to date!

    We are very much pleased. The truck pulls it like it wasn’t there and once I install the brake actuator it will stop it the same. I have to admit, reading all the argument threads about towing had me very tepid when I hooked it up and that concern almost caused me to miss it, but luckily I went with my gut. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want to push the envelope so 22’ with a slide is plenty big enough but the floor plan lays out well because DW wanted options for places to sit when the rain hits. Now that I’ve at least gotten the outside washed it’s kinda changed colors. Had a nice “green tint” when I picked it up, lol.
