Important: What To Consider When Buying a Camp Bunk Bed

Weight Capacity

Due to their heavy-duty steel construction most camping bunk beds are extremely strong.

Carrying Weight

There’s huge variation in how much these weigh – really important if you’ve got some distance to cover between your vehicle and camp site.

Tent Type

Do check the dimensions of your tent to make sure it will accommodate your camping bunk bed.

Most camping bunk beds will be wide enough for adults – it’s usually the height that will be difficult.
