Bunk for a Troll 552

Can you fit a bunk to a 2007 Troll 552? Iím thinking of the official bunk kit that slots into the table rail. As the dinette in on the side rather than at the end there isnít really a length restriction as there would be with the width of an older model. Just wondered if anyone had done it?

Rachel, I'm not really sure what you are asking. I'm guessing you are asking if it is possible to make the side dinette into a bunk bed.
I owned a 552 for a few summers. The side dinette makes up a short single bed, suitable for a child at 1.6m in length. I am not aware of any bunk bed kit that would be suitable to use in this area and doubt whether it would be safe to fabricate one as you would need support/bracing at the head and foot end.

Hi Rachel,

We use the Official Eriba bunk over the single bed in a 530.
The only attachment points are a rail which fits into the table rail attachment, and two hooks which go over the lip of the roof.
There are no side attachment points, but I know Eriba only advertise the bunk as fitting a few models, so I'm guessing it may be an issue with dimensions.
If you're close (Berkshire) we'd be happy to let you try the official bunk in your van.

The point is that the 552 seating is not in the front, across the van, but is on the nearside of the van, with nothing to restrict either end, whereas in a 530/540 the bunk ends are the side walls. Added to that a 552 will be a Cernay built van with a different roof height to the modern German built models.
