Default Extra ceiling bunks in a coach.

There is often questions about extra sleeping arangments on coaches.
Ran across this on E bay. Down about middle ways in the pictures. Neat idea I have not seen before. Bunks drop out of the ceiling in the front.

Interesting that that coach has both a mid entry door and a front bus door.

Along those same lines, the first motorhome I ever drove was one of the first GMC 26' front-wheel drive motorhomes. We ordered it with a floorplan that had two opposing couches in the main salon. The back of each couch was split with a piano hinge about 70% of the way down, and the remaining 30% folded up again the wall and put a fairly comfortable angle to lean back on.

When you wanted to convert the two sofas into bunks you just swiveled the backs up (they were attached to the wall with a swivel bracket at the top), and then snapped a couple of seat belts to attachement points in the ceiling.

We traveled with five or six of us photographers taking outdoor portraits for sororities all over the country (not as much fun as it sounds). Five or six full-size guys in a 26' motorhome was interesting, to say the least. The strap and hinge arrangement didn't last very long and we replaced them with ugly but functional angle brackets to support the upper bunks.

Although GMC's implementation wasn't that great, I always thought this was a pretty clever arrangement and exception to the "Seats six, sleeps four, ...." saying.
