Jon -are you still doing the ready made beds or just the kits?

Hi.
I'm having a break from the complete beds at the moment, but I hope to get back to them when I have more time.

Hi Jon,

Can you please help me. I've bought a set in the Netherlands and assumed the instructins were included. I've received a lot of materials but no instructions how to place the bed. Can you or some one else please help me and send me the instruction?

Thanks a lot.

Danielle

Hi Jon,

Finally got sorted and finished the bed already for installation when the bus comes out if hibernation. Got to say, it's a top quality kit and thanks for all your help.

One final question. In the kit there's two Allen key bolts with bullet type caps. Can you tell me where they are for?

Thanks again and the kids can't wait to try it out properly !

Thanks, I'm glad you like it, you have done a great job.

Those bolts are for capping the holes in the roof if you decide to take the black handle off that is normally attached.

Are these ok for adults, what's the weight limit ?

About 12.5 stone if you use 15mm ply. I'm out if stock at the moment and have quite a few people who have been waiting for a long time for a kit. I hate to let people down but I'm a few weeks away from having any for sale.

Hi Luke
The kits are £130 plus postage. Unfortunately there is a backlog of orders and I'm not sure when they will be ready.
Regards
Jon

I have 2 kits left in stock and I am hopping to get a fresh batch done in the next month. I may be able to sell they through RustyLee's website in the future.

Hi
The kit includes everything you need apart from wood, foam and fabric.

Hi
There is a delay on kits for a few weeks due to powder coating. I am hoping after Busfest I will be able to get the kits ready.
