For this post, I have put together a collection of the best bus bunk beds currently available. For all my top recommendations bed related see my complete guide on children beds.
UPDATED: 10 November 2020
MY TOP PICK:
If you are looking for a classic red bus bed, I recommend the Julian Bowen London Bunk Bed, because of its classic bright design, detailed features like the movable steering wheel and that it’s very sturdy and high quality materials.
Why settle for a simple single bed when your kids could be going to sleep in one of these fantastic quirky bus beds?
Any of these bus bunk beds will delight them and are perfect for sleepovers.
So here is my list of the the best bus beds. Enjoy!

- Be prepared for a long assembly time for two people.
- Not loads of room for getting out / into the bottom bunk
- The bold design won’t suit all rooms.

Julian Bowen Campervan Bunk Bed
