Not a storage solution, but a comfort solution. I found those Happi-Jack sofas miserable to sit on and worse for sleeping, so I removed them and attached a mattress platform made from 2X4's. I ran a 2X4 from one Happi-Jack support across to the other on both sides and then attached 2X4 slats about 5in apart the length of the mattress (80in). At the foot of the bed there is a gap between the slats and the wall and there is room to keep a shelf there and still raise and lower the bed. I was a full timer for 1.5 years and used the top bunk for permanent storage with "under the bed" plastic bins stored on top. When I had guests, they had a comfortable bed on the bottom bunk and I just kept the upper bunk pinned up and raised and lowered the lower bunk as necessary. Sorry I don't have a picture of the actual framing underneath the mattress.

I know this isn't exactly master carpentry, but sometimes even simple things can be very useful. The coat hook panels were purchased pre-built at the hardware store and a good match for the factory cabinetry. The closet rod is a piece of wooden dowel I cut to length and painted, bought the hardware for it on Amazon for a couple bucks.

I like that idea! very nice! I may use it.
Not sure yet if we could give up the seating in ours though. We don't have the happy-jack seats. Ours is a U-shaped dinette.
