We wanted to give you our full over full bunk bed with trundle review here so that you can make a better decision before purchasing one. Living with children who fast outgrow their toys and also their beds can be more difficult than you’d imagined. That favorite bunk bed of theirs, which they refused to part way with will soon become too cramped and start creaking as your elder one climbs into it every night. The last thing you need is a child fall out or stumble as they try to descend the ladder.
That’s why a full over full bunk bed with trundle is a more popular choice these days.
It gives you access to two full sized beds and a trundle bed for a smaller child or a friend during a sleepover. Contrary to popular notion, they are not too larger than a twin daybed with trundle or a queen daybed with trundle either.
While looking for the best full over full bunk bed with trundle, we discovered this fantastic all-wood bunk bed from Donco which is durable, safe and designed to perfection.
Beautiful Cappuccino finish
Donco’s range of youth furniture that includes bunk beds and platform beds are quite popular. The family owned business specializes in beds made of solid wood that are known for its durability. This full over full bunk bed with trundle features an all-wood trundle bed frame in a beautiful cappuccino finish.
Safe and Sturdy
Unlike cheap furniture, the finish is sanded and has a clean and smooth coating without any splinters making it completely safe for kids of all ages. Also, Donco does not use lead in the construction of its furniture and all its products undergo rigorous safety tests and comply with ASTM and CPSC safety standards. The full over full bunk bed with trundle is very safe and sturdy for anyone.
While the exact weight load of the bed is not clear, customer reviews mention that the upper bunk can easily accommodate a person above 200 pounds making it perfect for teenagers as well as adults.
The top rung also includes guard rails which will prevent the sleeping person from rolling over or falling out in their sleep. You can use an 8 inch mattress for the top bunk and a 6 inch one for the trundle.
The ladder on this full over full bunk bed with trundle has flat horizontal slats which give a firm footing while climbing or descending. The slat rolls also serve as the foundation for the mattress preventing the need for a bunky board.
Donco provides you with a detailed manual which makes assembly fairly straightforward. If you are new to assembling furniture, then it may take you at least three to four hours though. Everything you need to assemble the bed is included in the package.
We have been reviewing bunk beds with trundles for a while now and have seen many beds which are advertised with deceptive pictures. After assembling the bed, we notice that the space between the two bunks is too less for an adult to sit upright or that the space between the lower bunk and the floor is too less to use a comfortable sized mattress for the trundle.
This trundle bed full is one of the most perfectly designed ones that we have ever seen. Both bunks can support a full sized mattress (54″ x 74″) and the distance between the bottom bunk and the floor is 11 inches which is more than sufficient to use an 8 inch trundle bed mattress comfortably.
Also, you have 30 inches of space between the two bunks which is enough for an adult to sit without slouching or bending their neck. Please remember that the size of the mattress you use will reduce this space further.
This full over full bunk bed with trundle from Donco can also be separated into two full sized beds and the trundle can be pushed to any part of the room giving you three sleeping surfaces.
