Currently have a 5er with a bunk house that will sleep one adult. Looking for something along the same lines in a class A. Anyone ever seen or know of such a thing? No luck looking in the past blogs. Many thanks.
This is in addition to the standard master bedoom...
Almost every brand has a bunk version now. Mine happens to be an Itasca 35J which is a gas chassis but a higher end version. There are both DP and gas chassis versions now. A regular size adult would fit in my bunks but there are larger ones out there too.

2009 Fleetwood Discovery has a seperate 2nd bunkhouse bedroom. Thats all I could find!
Jayco has a couple of 5er models (if you want to stay with a 5th wheel!) Eagle Lite 5ers with bunks that are twin size, rear queen bed and upper bedroom bunks, and the Eagle has a 5er with a queen rear and an seperate upper bunk room with a twin bunk and a convertable double bed sofa.

I too wanted a class A bunk house but ended up buying a Class C that has 4 bunks and I use the queen sleeper over the cab. It sleeps 10 as the dinette and couch fold out too. Not that I would ever want to sleep 10... But it is nice as the rear bunkhouse has a door that can be shut when the kids get a bit much!

If you just want a bunkbed, as mentioned there are quite a few of them but pretty much all of them are simply 'a bunkbed in the hallway'. If you want an actual 2nd room, there are not many options.
As far as I know, there's really only the 2009 Winnebago Destination 39N left (http://www.winnebagoind.com/products/winnebago/2009/destination/floorplans.php). Gulfstream had a Crescendo 40UL but it's not listed on their website anymore so might not be produced anymore. National RV has gone out of business so that 34E shown above would only be available as old stock or used. Newmar used to have a loft model 3950/3951 which had a queen at the back (like most class As) but the ceiling was lower and there was a loft above with 2 twins. They replaced it this year with the 4159 (http://newmarcorp.com/uploads/floorplanpdfs/allstar/NewmarAllStar4159.pdf) but according to some that have looked at it, there just isn't enough clearance in the loft to be usable. (The old design (3950/3951) appears to have been much more functional).
Another option could be to take a toyhauler like the Newmar AllStar 4257 (http://newmarcorp.com/uploads/floorplanpdfs/allstar/NewmarAllStar4257.pdf) or the Gulfstream BountyHunter (http://www.gulfstreamcoach.com/products/bounty-hunter/381b.htm) and make a room in the garage (I actually think that something like the BountyHunter could work very well - not sure why other manufacturers (i.e. Newmar with the 4159) didn't go that route with the 'elevated roofline' to create more usable height at the back (I really think that an extra foot height on the Newmar 4159 would have made a huge difference) (note that I've never actually seen the BountyHunter so it's possible that it suffers the same 'loft height issues' as the 4159 but I think 'elevated roofline' is the way to go).
