Adult Bunk Beds | The Difference

What makes quality adult bunk beds?

Size is an important factor in identifying an adult bunk bed verses a youth bunk bed.  Bunk bed manufacturers typically manufacture adult bunk beds that are 6 feet long.  However, average size bunk beds do not fit average size adults.

Bunk beds that are 6 feet long do not allow extra room when an adult is fully stretched out.  Organizations and individuals are seeking high quality adult bunk beds.  Many hostels and summer camps are turning to the Internet to search for true commercial adult bunk beds.  High quality commercial adult bunk beds and triple bunk beds are quickly becoming a necessity.
