Awesome build. I had a stand with a bench bed that my boys slept on. That brought back some great memories!

Great job!

I'm in the process of building one myself and want to wire it for 12v, also. What components for the electrical did you use?

I like this design and I'm thinking about using it on an old boat trailer. Have you been happy with the 2x2 design? Has it been stable enough for you? Would probably build a 4x8 and use 2x2s throughout (except for the base of course).

Thanks for posting the pics!

I've been very happy with it. I'm going to build another one this spring but it'll be 8x8 or 10x8. I have a few ideas brewing!
