    Hello,
    I have a 2013 freightliner cascadia with only 1 bed. I want to install a top bunk. It didn’t come with one. How would I go about it?

    thanks

    I put one out of a Century in my old Classic. Pretty straight forward. Bolt the corners onto the triangle shaped corners, already in place on your Truck, then bolt the two little side brackets that hold it when folded down. You can get fancy, and add the latches that hold it in the up position I didn’t bother, just left it down all the time. It’s probably best to take one out yourself, to get a good idea how to install it. Might be cheaper too. You could build a frame. A long full size , Queen, or king size frame might work. Have to measure it. You can get them from Salvation Army store for $10. Use 1 to re enforce the bottom, in place of wood slats. Put a pice of 1/2” plywood down. Use some angle for brackets.
