We bought these beds today for an upcoming camping trip with our boys, to help save space. I lugged the heavy bag home, only to find that there are no instructions included. Despite that, they are easy to put together with a bit of strength and determination!
Unfortunately, I had got them all put together, only to find that one of the holes on the top bunk that the safety side panels fit into, isn't actually there! I've examined the pole and there's definitely no hole, so I can only insert one side of the piece, making it useless.
I would have given this a higher rating, except for the fact that I now have to take it back to the store to swap for another one.

duo bunk bed
Bought this today at blackburn go outdoors. Had a laugh trying to put up lol but we did it about 20mins but now know how to put together be quicker next time. Kids love it tho i think the top bunk should had 2 support bars rather than 1 but still sturdy enough, my daughter who's 16 has lied on top bunk and my 2 sons and defo strong. Cant wait for camping now to try it in the tent so far tho defo 10/10 id say. ps they so cute too not full size defo worth £90.00

Hi Gear Duo Bunk
This product is heavier than you think, trying to align the poles to insert into the holes was a nightmare on one bed,securing the velcro was hassle with the same bed, the complete bed does rock slightly once constructed.
Our 8yr old and 5yr old love it.
Should save space In the tent too, looking forward to camping this year.

Does Exactly What It Says On The Tin
Kids says how comfy it is, would not be suitable for anyone over 6ft, but not that many people are.
Not sure which person said it takes a long time to assemble, took us 10mins first time we did it, really is super simple.
Very sturdy when assembled too.

Really Good Product
This product is not hard to assemble. It took me 25 mins the first time (with an excitable 4 and 2 year old jumping all over them and because i was unfamiliar with the product). Put them up for the second time last night and it barely took 5 mins. The instructions ARE contradictory as to where you put one of the support bars....do it as per the diagram and put the single support bar on the top bunk. Overall a great product at a great price. In addition to camping these are useful when visiting relatives, standard hotel rooms etc. Be prepared for the fact that the bag is heavy because of the sturdy nature of the product.

What can i say? Super impressed with this product. We bought it origionally for 2 of our 4 children to sleep on to free up floor space in the tent however it was truly put to the test on an international Guide camp last week where it was used by myself and my co-leader who suffers with serious back trouble. I was on the lower bunk and she was on the top with a memory foam matress topper. Putting aside the fact i hit my head on it forgetting where i was in the morning, we slept great! The bed was put together in little under 15 minutes took the weight of two adults all week ( and 4 girl guides on the top bunk at one point before they were quickly dusted off). Was so impressed with it we're contemplating another for personal use and a few for guides.

Great...if you can get it up
Just managed to get this up after almost an hour of strain trying to get the bottom bed constructed. Just to be clear, this is bordering on ridiculous trying to get the poles in place. Top bunk was a LOT easier.
Anyway, after huge effort it’s up, look great, nice and supportive. I just dread trying to put it up on the camp site.

Great...if you can build them!!
What a nightmare of a product to build! It took two of us over an hour, I nearly gave up!
The instructions are clear but very basic and tells you two different things about where the support bars go, we found them really hard to put together, maybe it’s because they new me the fabric is still firm and new? I don’t know.
But once we finally got them built the kids loved them!! They are full size and I could fit on them too but I wasn’t allowed! :)
I like that you can split them in to two beds too.

Fantastic space saving comfy buy
My two kids 7 & 3 absolutely love these beds. They are low enough to feel safe and my daughter says they are super comfy, she says she's sleeping better than at home. Half the floor space in the tent is a real bonus. My one concern was whether they would fit where the walls slope in on our bell tent , but they are low enough to go quite close to the edge.

Great product great price
Comes in a small bag but more heavy than you think it would be. Very easy to put up as spring loaded poles, storage pockets handy.
